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.

Bottle. Slightly hazy golden color. Light. Bubbly white head. Berry fruit aroma. Blueberry and other sweet fruit. I've never had a huckleberry so I can't speak to that. Sweet flavor. Berries. Light grain. Sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Plenty of berries with some corn in the nose. Clear blonde body is topped by a low white head that recedes to ring. Mild sweet and somewhat soapy floral and berry flavours. Light body with strong carbonation. Chalice. Fridge temperature. Bottle sampled at presario’s Als vs. Stamps tasting.

Pale yellow out of the bottle with a thin, fizzy white head. Sweet berry nose with a little soda pop sensation to it. Light berry fruit flavors. I don’t know what huckleberries taste like, but this was like blueberries and raspberries with a light dusting of white sugar. Finish is a little more tart. Not a bad version of a fruit beer. Thanks to slikwily for the bottle.

Draft at Hops for dinner and also in Whitefish. I guess huckleberries are pretty volatile because I got very faint fruit notes here. Either that or the wheat just completely dominated the berries. Nice but wanted more fruit.

Pale, cloudy yellow, with stream of thick bubbles feeding a weak head. Huckleberry pierces through the wafting wheaty notes. Mellow berry flavor. With mild tart sour wheat to balance the sweetness. A respectable, lightly flavorful, fruit beer.

Bottle: Dusty gold pour with a thin creamy white head. Bubbly. Aroma is wheat, floral, and light huckleberry. Flavor is mild lager malt, huckleberry, and finished with wheat. Crisp. Really a pretty clean taste. More wheat than fruit.

Lively carbonation -- fizzy and palate cleansing. Malts were dry, grainy and bready. Huckleberry flavors and aromas swarmed from start to finish, yet they weren’t too sweet or overbearing. Mild bitterness helped to balance things out. Pretty refreshing beer.

On tap. Hazy golden, white top. Scent is sweet berries. Taste is berries, malt and berries.

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

This is a unique, crisp wheat beer. I tried it as a novelty, because of the huckleberries. I really enjoyed it.
