look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into an MKE tulip.
4.5% ABV, 18 IBUs, no date.

A - Ruby highlights shine through the clear vibrant amber brew, topped with a loose light ivory head that lasts quite some time before leaving sheets of lace on the glass.

S - The fruity and voluptuous aroma of blueberries explodes from Weekend At Louie's with a perfumy, aromatic power. It's hard to nail a "real" blueberry nose though; this one is a mix between a blue raspberry slushy and real, freshly washed blueberries sprinkled with sugar. Either way, I dig it! Undertones of toasted amber malt pull through with a hint of earthy hops and herbal tea.

T - If you're not a fan of fruit beer and are put off by the aroma, don't be scared to take a sip; Weekend At Louie's is much more beer-like in flavor than aroma. Full bready Munich malts are accented by plenty earthy European hops for a nice base beer for blueberries to interact with. The fruit shies away from the artificial aroma profile for a more real berry flavor; it's like a fruity unsweetened iced tea.

M - Crisp and clean with a dry finish, the feel of Weekend At Louie's is more reminiscent of a lager than an ale, as it goes down smooth and refreshing, blowing a kiss of blueberry flavor back at you on the finish.

O - Weekend At Louie's is a nice take on Milwaukee's staple beer, tossing in some tea and blueberry rooibos from Rishi for a fantastic, inviting nose that doesn't quite carry over into the flavor with full force. A great summer beer regardless, its a "fruit" beer that sticks to it's base of malt and hops while bringing something else to the table. Again, it feels like an unsweetened iced tea with fruity aspects.
