COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We begin with slight variations on our traditional Cream Ale recipe. Real huckleberries are added during the last minutes of the boil to lend a subtle berry aroma and flavor.

12-oz. Pours a crystal clear pale amber with a dense white head that sticks around for a while. Big cloying huckleberry pancake syrup nose, definitely smells backsweetened. Fizzy light body. Crackers and syrup on the mid palate with a cloying finish.

chinchill (3119) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Very fresh (March 2013 bottling) 12 oz bottle with a trace of sediment in the bottom. pours a red-orange-amber; clear; small head that soon reduces to a tiny bi of film and a partial ring. S: Nice fruity smell; natural huckleberry is believable. Sweet but more fruity than like candy. Light baked bread in the background. Taste: Huckleberries!! Taste rating bumped up for the high quality fruit treatment here. Also features a bready malt base and a touch of hops. . M: nice smooth feel in this medium bodied ale. Well chosen, moderate level of carbonation. O: I had this as a light dessert beer and it worked well. Refreshing, with a pleasant, natural fruitiness. Sweet but not cloying or candied.

reebtogi (4891) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
355ml bottle pours a golden color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is fresh berries and grains. Taste is a malty sweetness with a tartness from the berries and a dry finish. Light bodied with average carbonation. A decent brew for the style, with a pleasing aroma and an easy drinking ale.

I typically enjoy lighter beers & learned that Laughing Dog incoporates real huckleberries into a cream ale recipe. Each year the flavor and changes due to mother nature presenting a weather influenced berry. Some years the ale is floral and sweet. Other times a little more tart. But for sure youíll experience fresh berry flavor in a smooth cream ale. I can only drink one as Iíd rather go for the Pales and IPAs. Best served very cold and in hot weather.

glennmastrange (2445) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Light to moderate grain and hay for the malt, grass for the hops, light soap for the yeast with unripe pear, berries and a hint of vinegar in the background. Head is small, fizzy turning wispy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is sparkling clear light amber. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidci. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively to fizzy carbonation and a lightly dry finish. Crisp and refreshing with a fruity background, but not much else to this Fruit Beer.

Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2012
12oz bottle pours clear gold with tiny ring of white foam. The aroma has some berry notes mixing with a slight yeasty tartness and an even fainter note of sourness. At the end of the draw I get some sugary sweetness. All these aromatics seem to go OK together. The taste starts with a mix of berry notes, mild tartness, a faint sour fruitiness and then sugary sweetness. It ends with a bit of tartness that is able to poke through the sugary veil of table sugary like sweetness. This one really isnít working for me.

thegreenrooster (3566) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Pour is a clear gold with a average white head. Aroma is a tart fruit and not much else. Flavor is some tart berry and a bland base beer. I donít think Iíve ever had a huckelberry so I guess that is the fruity flavor in this. This beer is good for a sample only and I usually like stuff from this brewer.
