Reviewed from notes.

Pours out a somewhat coppery amber color with one and a half fingers of white foam that lasts for about two minutes and leaves behind some minimal amounts of lacing on the glass. Light spritzey carbonation and medium-light body.

Smells of blueberry pie drizzled with cough syrup. In other words: partially medicinal and artificially-sweetened. At least I can smell malt aromas which contribute to the pie crust impression I get from this one. The flavor is several decimal points drier than the sweet dessert-like aroma. I taste medicinal and boiled muddy bittering hops combined with some awkward cracker malts in the first sip. As it warms up the beer gains a measure of boiled vegetable off flavor (soggy canned green beans).

This one doesn't really work for me because of how schizophrenic it is. My best advice to the brewer is to decide to produce either a dessert beer or a savory beer; don't have the aroma of a dessert beer and the flavor of a bad English Bitter. The contrast is way too jarring and discordant.

4.11/5  rDev +15.4%
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.
