The huckleberry is native to the Pacific Northwest and it is prized for its sweetness and texture. To celebrate summer and the huckleberry picking season, we have blended real huckleberries from last season with our cream ale.

From the 12-oz. can (with a pasted-on label), Laughing Dog Huckleberry Cream Ale has a thin, white, quickly-dying head, an opaque, sediment-filled, orange-gold appearance, some stray bubbles, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of odd wax paper, fruit acid, sweetness, huckleberries, berry skin, and white bread. Taste is of acidic berry juice, white bread, and background bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat chewy, and this beer finishes wet, fruity, and somewhat repelling. RJT

This is a "time and place" beer. It screams "hot summer day" with its light, fruity mouthfeel. The huckleberry flavour is subtle, refreshing, and just enough to remind you where this beer is brewed. Best enjoyed with your ass jammed into some sort of inflatable floaty while bobbing around on a lake, surrounded by mountains.

A big thanks to the incredible woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head and lots of carbonation. Smell is dominated by berries. Taste is berries, some sourness, a bit of malts, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a unique and decent beer.

Would rather drink a skunked Bud Ice that's been in back of a hatchback for three years. Wouldn't even marinate a chicken in this garbage.

Unless you like Huckeberries, avoid this beer. Doesn't have much of the alleged cream ale characteristics. While this is someone's cup of tea, I won't have this beer again. Ugh.
