COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In honor of the huckleberries that grow wild throughout the Flathead Valley, we unveiled this summer brew in the spring of 1996. A combination of 75% Western pale malted barley, 25% malted wheat, Cascade hops and wild huckleberry juice from the Flathead Valley, were used to create this highly drinkable, thirst-quenching lager. A delightfully unique fruit beer, this pale summer brew combines the crisp, dry refreshment of a light lager with a subtle, tart hint of huckleberries that is neither sweet nor overpowering.

12 oz bottle in Yellowstone NP: home of everything huckleberry. Clear bluish amber body with a good off-white head. decent retention. Aroma: Blueberries and faint hops. Flavour: berries, baked wheat bread and light hops. Nearly as sweet as it is bitter. Medium-light body with medium carbonation.

The wheat aroma actually comes out stronger than the huckleberry. Flavor is similar - more wheat than fruit. It’s okay. My 2nd or 3rd different huckleberry beer; this might be the best but i’m not sure this fruit works very well in beer yet.

Very light in color with no hint of blue makes me wonder if this is an extract berry. The aroma is lite, mostly sweet malt. The flavor has just a bit of the berry. Very nice and refreshing. Nice brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Albertsons. Dull pour, aroma is berries, but seems candy-ish, flavor smooths out a bit, and body has a nice silky feel to it. Wheat is probably a nice base for this, and presents a decent summer quencher.

Pours pale yellow with a billowy head. Aroma is fruity sweet, but the flavor seems more dominated by a musty malt than whatever a huckleberry is supposed to taste like...
