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

12oz bottle. Golden color, white fizz. Smells like fermented diarrhea. The worst smelling beer Iíve 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 (5045) - 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.

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 itís not great but an interesting beer to try once.

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 (4487) - 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 doesnít show well. Aftertaste is slightly sweet, showing much more fruit than before, but I still canít 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

Pours a clear pale yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma of berries and malt. Flavor fruity and malty with a bit of tartness at the finish. Not bad.

Aroma: It has a super sweet berry nose, with some yeast, and other berry notes
Appearance: This beer pours a clear gold color with a small white head
Flavor: Taste-wise it is rather sweet with slight hints of bitterness and sourness
Palate: This beer has a rather light body and it had a decently drinkability to it as well
Overall Impression: Overall, this beer was too sweet, but decent enough. I mildly enjoyed drinking it, but I had a decent number of issues with it as well.

Drake (7940) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Served on draft at Whole Foods Glen Allen, VA. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large creamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of berries, grain and pale malts. The taste is strong berries, grainy malts and a bit of honey. Medium bodied, pretty drinkable.

Cybercat (2986) - Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Malty aroma has a strong, sweet overtone of - must be huckleberry. It pours a rather typical clear yellow with a fluffy white head, not inspiring, but one shouldnít judge a book by its cover. Better a good-tasting beer that doesnít look so hot, than a great-looking beer that disappoints the taste buds. Flavor is malty and fruity, again with a sweet and slightly tangy huckleberry flavor dominating. The tartness nicely balances the sweetness. I get a hint of hops as well. Texture has average body and plenty of fizz. A distinctive beer, worth trying if you like something different and especially if you like fruit beers.
