COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The huckleberry is native to the Pacific Northwest and is prized for itís 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

12 oz can bought from LIfesource Natural Grocer in Salem. $1.69 Have to say this is the most beautiful can for beer i have seen. Pours a hazy yellow body with a large bubbly/frothy pure snow white head. Very nice sweet berry/floral aromas..i could smell it as soon as i began to pour.slight biscuity malt. Invigorating. Well balanced taste with the berries coming out in the end. Crackery/biscuit malts. Great drinkable palate on a hot ,humid sweaty night this went down a treat. Very very good fruit flavoured cream ale. Will be getting a six for the weekend grill out.

This type of beer isnít my thing, but for what it is, it succeeds splendidly. Really nice cream ale base brew. The huckleberry flavor is very prominent, but not sweet. This is not one of those fruit-type beers where you have a sip and say "no more." For what it wants to be, itís very very good.

Some fruit added to Laughing Dogís cream ale makes for a sweet drink, perfect for a hot summerís day. Body from the cream ale is slick and velvety, huckleberries add a nice sweet touch to this drink.

Reimer96 (1197) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 20, 2014
Pours a pinkish gold with a nice white head and good lacing. Aroma of sweet fruits, huckleberry and other fruity esthers. Taste is sweet fruits bit not overwhelming and some malts but not enough for a proper balance. Beer is more focused on being a beer and not sweet and fruity. Nice creamy mouthfeel.

AgentAle (641) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
Aroma is huckleberry and strawberry. Taste is a sweet lifht maltiness that is net with a dry bitterness that isnít anything special. Mostly a fruity take over. Body is a clear gold with a thin head that retains poorly.

dfinney23 (1650) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2014
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.

Jay_Dubbz (85) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2014
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.
