I don't know why I added this to mixed six pack today..everything about it screams "bad idea"..but everything I've tried from MKE has been solid so far...
Looks like a standard amber/English mild . Head is pretty nice and creamy, medium carbonation.
Smells..mm..not so great. Very artificial blueberry, not the full "fruity pebble" spectrum of Leinenkugel, rather almost like blueberry soda. Some biscuit in the background.Blueberry toast anyone?
Taste is not as strong on the blueberry, but comes across pretty carbonated and slightly bitter with a blueberry syrup flavor. It finishes cleaner than anticipated, not syrupy or sticky sweet.
Mouthfeel is medium, not sure what else to say here..not very good.I really enjoy a well executed fruit beer, but this unfortunately was not one of them.
Good brewery nonetheless, really glad I didn't buy more than one.

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.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Bernie's brother, suffering a similar fate? Damn uncreative Hollywood types... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear russet-amber topped by over a finger of cream-white foam. The nose comprises mild blueberry buffeted by an irked sea of mild caramel. The taste brings out the worst in the blueberry, which is now cardboard-y, old, and peel-y. The biscuit in the background can't even keep up, fading into obscurity before it has an opportunity to think about asserting itself. The result is just sadness for my tongue. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, this beer is just a mess. Straight up.
