Sweet smells of huckleberry and cream. Light white fizzy head and light orange body. Fizzy fruity huckleberry tastes. Fizzy and clean and refreshing on palate.

Aromas of huckleberries and soap. Light amber with a large, lasting, fluffy, white head. Dry and very fruity. Light, clean, and refreshing. Not my thing, but not too shabby.

You don’t expect a beer like to taste exceptional and it didn’t but it is a pleasant tasting beer unlike many fruit beers out there that taste fake. The cream ale base is pretty good. It’s smooth and creamy with a nice medium yellow/orange color. There is a very slight bitter/sour that tastes like it is coming from the fruit not the hops. Has a mild sweetness throughout. Chalky dry finish. Needs more huckleberries. Glad I tried it.

Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head that leaves light to no lacing. Smells of huckleberry and light malt and slight hops. Tastes of all the same things in the smell but huckleberry is a little muted. Mouthfeel is thin and slightly creamy with decent carbonation. I’m not very impressed by this they should have added more huckleberries. It’s also not very creamy for being called a cream ale. Probably won’t try this disappointing beer again.

This is ok but the flavor is off. Pour is the best thing about this brew...a nice crisp yellow with a small white head.

On tap 2 oz. taste at Gilly's Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD. Clear, straw color with an off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of huckleberries (although I doubt I could distinguish them from blueberries), light fruit, wheat and lemon. Taste of huckleberries, light fruit, bread and wheat. Light body and low/medium carbonization with a thin, watery mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mansquito (6438) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Total Wine, Fairfax 12oz: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is berry with some light beer smell. Taste is much the same. Slightly sweet berry flavor over a light beer backbone. Easy to drink, but harder to remember.

3.2
Arayaga2 (2197) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Slightly clear gold with a dense half cm of white head. Aroma is a tart blueberry candy aroma, and taste is fairly heavy on the berry, which blends with a slight vanilla note. It has a slightly medicinal edge, but it’s not bad. $2/12oz

Braudog (6716) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle. Overly active on the pour, this maintains a big, fizzy head over a hazy yellow-orange brew. The aroma is more creamy than berry, but they’re both there. This drinks with a definite, farmhousey funk. I don’t discern any berry character at all, and instead this comes across as a saison-style beer, but a bit imperfect. Disappointing from a normally solid brewer. (#5081, 6/27/2013)

3.2
Wittales (762) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Appearance was clear gold with diminishing rocky white 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are slight sweet malts, then overpowering berry nose. Taste are hints of sweet pale malt, sour huckleberry and not much else. Palate was soft smooth creamy CO2 with light body, lasting sour berry finish. Too much berries, dial it back.
