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 a very light and clear yellow. I get hints of huckleberry and feet in the aroma here. I think it tastes relatively bland and off-puttingly sour.

BigBeer45 (1243) - Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Bottle from Champanes, this ale had a clear yellow gold pour (there were some particles floating around) and made a one finger white head that receded to a thin cover and ring, the glass had less than medium effervescence (a few streams in the center of the glass), and it left some spots and fingers on the sides of the glass, there was no sediment in the bottle but there were some specs/particles on the bottom of the bottle, this drink had aromas of sweet fruit (huckleberry, I thought it resembled white grape and apple), faint malt, and fruit sweetness, the flavors were huckleberry fruit and light malt, and a little fruit sweetness, there was little to no bitterness after the finish, the mouth feel was light on the palate and had some creaminess, this beer had a decent nose and flavor.

BBB63 (5966) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 21, 2012
12 oz bottle and served in standard pint glass: Clean straw hue with a lasting head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of berries, honey, biscuit, slight corn and soap. The taste is rather straight forward with mild twangy fruit, mild pale malts, and a slight butterscotch finish. The mouth feel is smooth and mild. Yes, this is a mild beer for the ladies who do not like beer. A one-and-done purchase.

unclemattie (4136) - Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2012
12oz bottle. Golden color, white fizz. Smells like fermented diarrhea. The worst smelling beer I’ve ever had. An odd, perfumy fruit character. Some malt character. Never had a huckleberry before. Fruit essence resembles a cranberry and raspberry and a hint of strawberry. (3371)

TheBeerGod (5184) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle. Soft gold pour with a short, fizzy white head. Aroma is berries and grains. Sort of smells like Quaker Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal. Taste is fruity with berry notes, sweet malt, lightly toasted grains and light flowery notes. Body is light-medium with a strong bubbly carbonation. Ends with more toasted grains, sweet malt, ripe berries and dried flowers.

nick76 (4184) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2012
The appearance is golden with a nice foamy head and a super light haze. The aroma is dirty with fruit, dust, mop water, grass and yeast. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall it’s not great but an interesting beer to try once.

obguthr (3670) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2012
Raspberry nose. Clear amber, headless. Soft body, easy carbonation. Little flavor save for artificial raspberry and a weak hint of malt. Refreshing and surprisingly nice mouthfeel. Unimpressive in the aspect that counts most: flavor.

jgb9348 (4663) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Crystal clear golden coloured body with a very thin off-white head - not much at all in movement or head. Aroma of fresh raspberry and blackberry smells with a lot of sweetness, a very small amount of malt and a good amount of sourness. Medium-bodied; Pungent strong earthy flavour with a lot of the fruitiness in the back end with a deep metallic and bitter flavour right before that which doesn’t show well. Aftertaste is slightly sweet, showing much more fruit than before, but I still can’t get past the bitterness from malt/metal that shows through. Overall, an interesting beer that showed some promise, but the taste is too deep and bitter and unfortunately a bit off. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 23-May-2012 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 08-June-2012.

Golden, clear. Aroma: light crystal malt sweetness, definite but subtle huckleberries. Flavor: clean pale malt flavor with touch if sweetness, subtle huckleberry finish. Easy drinking and well made. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
