COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The huckleberry is native to the Pacific Northwest and is prized for it’s sweetness and texture. To celebrate summer and the huckleberry picking season, we have blended real huckleberries with our cream ale. Smooth and creamy with a light touch of huckleberries, it would be great at the lake, a bbq or simply just relaxing away a long summer day. Just like the berries, Huckleberry Cream Ale with be available for your enjoyment for a limited time! You never know when it will be gone until next year

Pours with a nice foam cap that leaves a surprising amount of lacing. Fruit and grain aroma. Not very creamy but does have distinctly fruity undertones.

big taste of blackberry brandy mingled in a wheat like farina tasting yeasty body. bit of tang perhaps a little turpentine like. the brew might seem better if colored like the berry it represents.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Very interesting beer. Just al little overpowering with the berry flavor. Dial that back and this would be a decent summer ale. --you've been Dubbed.

BeerandBlues2 (9068) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle at Roasthouse Pub. Pours clear dark gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is huckleberry, Pils malt, earthy hops. Flavor is malt forward with moderate huckleberry notes, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Nice smooth beer. Very easy to drink with a smooth creamy palate. Slightly sweet but not overly so. Would go great after a meal with a desert instead of a desert wine. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BackyardDogs (35) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle. Nice aroma with the huckleberry. Refreshing flavor more like a pilsner then a ale. Clean finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dwyerpg (4354) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 29, 2013
This is a pretty terrible beer. Definite huckleberry, not really creamy, mostly just and undrinkable lactic fruitiness. This score might be generous.

DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle from total wine sterling. Pours golden with a thin white head. Big blueberry notes on the nose. Fruity and slightly tart on the tongue. Finishes clean. Eh!

chuckstout (232) - Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Aroma really comes across as huckleberry and touch winey. Pours a golden color with a hint of red from the huckleberry. Sweet fruit flavor with a bit of malt backbone pretty tasty

hershiser2 (1175) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2013
$2.15 bottle Bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Golden-tan with a small white head. Smells of strong berry - grape Kool-Aid? Tastes of berry, burnt malts, grape... cheap beer finish.
