Huckleberries have yet to be successfully cultivated anywhere in the World. As a result, although the fruit is often referenced in pop culture pertaining to the West (think Doc Holliday), few are actually familiar with its flavor and aroma. We think this will be a graceful introduction. The search for this elusive berry led us to the Huckleberry King Pin of Southwest Washington and his legion of foragers, who picked all of our fruit in the mighty Gifford Pinchot National Forest. We then added the fruit to our 2-year-old lambic-inspired ale and allowed the berries to ferment for six months. Finally, after bottle conditioning with champagne yeast, La Baie Sauvage is your Huckleberry.
