3.99/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a elongated short flute like glass.

Body color is a muted yellow to brown appearance, quite clear with some cola carbonation. Two finger fluffy white head and a nice cap on tap. Some little bit of thick lacing while drinking. No hint appearance wise this is a fruit beer.

Bouquet shows a sharp and airy hint of flower like blueberry. Perfumey. Real nice aromatics. A hint of crispness fizz but some malt chewy quality also. Pretty impressive.

Palate is quite surprising. Honey angle seems to work more towards palate softness/smoothness than being any hint of sweet. Nice crisp blueberry angle that is much like on the nose. Fresh and floral. Some of the chewy malt sensations missing just slightly.

Overall a unique one in the blueberry realm and quite tasty.

A big thanks (yet again) to Todd for providing me a bottle of this. I love blueberries, and I've always made it my goal to try beers brewed with them whenever I can. Poured into a tulip wine glass from a 12oz bottle. Really wish there was a freshness or bottling date!

Pours a golden-amber color that's slightly cloudy in nature, with some noticeable thinned sediment at the bottom of the glass (especially after the dregs were poured in). What's pretty neat is when I held this against the light, there was a clear indigo (or light pink) tinge to the beer! Carbonation is quite good, and despite no bubbles showing, there's a solid creamy head (about 2 fingers wide) that sticks around for a while. A very solid looking beer, although with a brief glance I would have never guessed it containing blueberries!

The aroma is a pleasant combo of tart fruit, sweetness, and graininess, but don't expect anything too acidic or funky here, or a New Glarus offering. This is a fruit-blended beer that's pretty balanced - notes of tart blueberries, strawberries, and and cherries (the latter being more subtle) reach the nose, with a honeyed and lactic sweetness that makes this reminiscent of a light variation on sweet blueberry yogurt. Add a nutty, grainy flavor with notes of toffee and crackers at the finish, and it's pretty much on par to one. Very pleasant on the nose, and my hopes were it to be similar on the palate.

The flavor shows this contain a solid amount of grip, especially for a non-sour, low ABV fruit based beer. Not really all that tart, but rather retains the flavor of chewing just freshly ripened blueberries, boysenberries, and perhaps some other red fruit (such as strawberries) thrown in for good measure. Finishes slightly honeyed, with notes of lightly sweetened toffee, caramel, and the lactic creamy goodness that I found earlier in the aroma. Finishes clean, with a toasted grainy yet overall creamy feel that pulls everything together. Gentle on the palate, and no issues with the malt base or alcohol profile overall. Could use more fruit and honey, to be honest, but it's still a delight to drink.

Loved this beer - I want it for the warmer months of the year. In a country saturated with a lot of wonderful experimentation in brewing, this one could easily get overlooked under the higher ABV, barrel-aged, and more explosively tart fruit offerings. Let's hope this continues to find an audience. Wonderful stuff - I hope to try more experiments from this brewery.

given to me by a friend and it sat in my fridge for a few days before I decided to try it. very refreshing. it's cold winter at the moment, but I feel like during the summer it would be ALOT better. especially on a hot ohio day! also dig that it's brewed locally.

A - nothing special. Not much head. Golden amber in color with a floating haze.

S - Clean nose with lots of berries

T - Similar to the nose, berries and malted barley up front with a bitter honey finish. Not much on hops.

M - Crisp and refreshing. Appropriate for style.

O - I expected less from this beer. I am pleasantly surprised with what it has to offer.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a tumbler

A - This beer pours amber in color. It is topped with two inches of white head.

S - It smells like blueberries and there is a bready smell that makes it smell almost like blueberry muffins.

T - The taste starts out with blueberry but not an in your face, over the top blueberry taste. It is enough to let you know it is blueberry without overwhelming. I get a sweetness from the honey at the finish, and then it is gone. The finish is clean.

M - Moderate to thin.

O - My girlfriend loves this beer, so I decided to try it. It would probably be more refreshing in the summer, but it was a decent fruit beer.

Poured into a perfect pint.

4.25 A: Clear yellow orange color. Three fingers of frothy white head. Retention is very good and plenty of lacing is left.

3.75 S: I gotta admit, this smells pretty good. Plenty of blueberry in this. Honey underneath. Despite all the berries, there's still a pleasant neutral maltiness underneath.

3.5 T: Again plenty of blueberry, light honey, and neutral maltiness.

3.75 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Nice creaminess on this and super smooth.

3.5 D: Pretty good, especially for a fruit beer.

Appearance: This beer pours a dark golden color and is topped with 11/4” of off white colored head that tends to last.
Smell: The aroma of this beer is all berries and some malt aroma that blends in ok in the background.
Taste: The flavor is nothing like aroma is all malt with just a little berry mixed in.
Mouthfeel: Bumble Berry is a bit on the thin side but easy to drink due to the fact it is thin. Good try at this style but I have had better.

A small white head on a hazy, dark golden body. Glad to see that it isn't purple... A bit of musty wheat and just a hint of fruit. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a bit of malt and honey as well as blueberry in the finish. Not bad for a fruit beer, the blueberry is kind of anemic but decent enough.

"Bottled on 07/02/13 12:29" appears on the side of the bottle. My wife got me freshly bottled beer again :)

I poured it into a pint glass and got a finger and a half of effervescent nearly-white head. The body is a good amber color with a good amount of bubbles floating upward. The head died down after a minute or so, and while bubbles tried to cling, no lace was noticed.

This one smells sticky sweet. I get honey and blueberry.

The flavor starts off with honey and sweet grass and transitions into buttery crackers. Blueberry pervades the whole flavor, and finishes it off with the crackers.

This beer is rather light bodied, and it leaves a light coating and slightly dry finish. I would call it chug-able.

3.23/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

5.3% ABV confirmed. I love the funny label art. "Malt beverage brewed with honey and blueberries." 12 fl oz brown glass bottle with branded yellow pry-off cap acquired in a trade with michaellcoates and served into a Mitchells of Lancaster flared stem-tulip in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average; I liked their Headhunter IPA.

Served chilled. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a two finger head of white colour. No real cream. Not very frothy. Thickness is lacking. Above average to pretty good (~4-6 minute) retention. Uneven lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes.

Body colour is a clear copper. Nicely vibrant. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Looks generally good overall. Not unique or speical, but there are no overt flaws.

Sm: Blueberries, artificial fruit syrup, honey, clove honey, clean barley, and neutral malts. Nectary as hell and sweet. Appealing, but it does illicit suspicion; I'm hoping it's not an artificial sugar bomb. Complementary light floral hopping. No yeast character or alcohol comes through. Pretty strong.

T: Heavy on the blueberry - which does feel authentic. But there is a bit of artificial fruit syrup character here; fake currants bolster the berry notes. Honey throughout. Clean barley. Neutral malts. It's a pretty simple build, but it's balanced for what it is. By no means too sweet or cloying as I feared, but definitely on the sweeter end of the sweet/bitter scale. Flavour intensity and duration are average. A pleasant, drinkable beer. Not much complexity or subtlety here, but it deliver son its premise. I do like it.

Mf: Very light on the palate. Smooth and wet. Refreshing. Good thickness and body. Fleeting. A bit overcarbonated. Complements the flavour profile nicely. Soft.

Dr: Quite drinkable, but I doubt I'd order a pitcher of this to share with friends. The sweetness would prevent me from wanting more than one in the same night, but I'd get it again if I was in the mood for a light summer beer with a little more flavour than a macro crap lager. Hides its ABV well. This would be a good beer to ease newcomers into craft/micro beer. An interesting brew from Fat Heads.

Bumble Berry's smell is unremarkable, with a scent of blueberry and not much else. But the taste is interesting, as it starts off sweet and ends tart and is never overpowering. The honey hangs out in the background and compliments the fruit flavor. The mouthfeel is somewhat thicker than your average fruit beer, but it manages to be very drinkable and goes down incredibly easy. The carbonation gives it just enough crispness. Overall, this stands out as one of the better fruit beers and is less sweet than any other blueberry beer I've had. The flavors are natural. Expect to taste much more of the blueberry than the honey.

3.29/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a TBBC pint glass.

A: Pours a nice gold color, nearly clear. Relatively low visible carbonation, but still forms a 1 1/2 finger white foamy head.

S: Huge blueberry, moderate sweetness, just a hint of cracker malt. The fruitiness reminds me almost of fruit salad with blueberry predominance. Nice.

T: Big letdown here. Flat tinny blueberry, decent cracker malt, some honey undertones, and slight hop bitterness in the finish. There's also some astringency here that becomes a big more noticeable as it warms.

M: Light, thin body, decent carbonation sensation, and low alcohol presence.

O: Probably would never have bought this beer, but I have been SO impressed with Head Hunter's (and I'm very excited for them to come to Florida) that I thought I'd give it a try. This was a miss for me for sure, but honestly, it's far from the worst blueberry ale I've had. Still not sure I could recommend it though.

on tap at hawthornes - served in tulip

Bright, clear golden pour with a two-finger crop of white head resting on top, fading into a frothy wave of filmy retention, leaving patches of lacing on the glass.

Juicy berries erupt from the nose, drizzled in honey sweetness with a soft malty undertone. Blueberry and blackberry with soft acidity.

Fruity and sweet right up front with plenty of jammy blueberries and honey. Fairly sweet overall, with a milder cracker malt backbone underneath the fruit and sugar. Finishes with berries and honey.

Lighter medium body, well carbonated, smooth and sticky on the tongue. A pretty refreshing brew for the summer although a bit sweet for my tastes. If you're a fan of blueberries and honey, they pretty much hammered the point home with this one.

4.18/5  rDev +15.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A- Pours a full, deep gold with a small head. Head sticks around a short time, then is down to the lacing on the top, that transitions itself to the sides of the glass very well. Body is somewhat hazy.

S- Sweet blueberries all the way through. Scent seems to be somewhat artificially sweet, but still very appetizing. There is a small amount of honey also detectable underneath all of the sweet berry smells.

T- Starts with some mild blueberry flavors that taste way more natural that in the scent. Berries transition into some honey sweetness. More of a hone lager taste from there on out with mild sweetness mixed with some light malts. Finishes clean and refreshing.

M- Light, crisp, and easy to drink. This is the definition of refreshing summer beer. Berries make it sweet and keep you coming back for a little more, while the crisp light malts quench your thirst.

Overall, this is one of the best fruit beers I've had.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Here’s hoping this is a blueberry beer that finally works; I’ve had too many bad berry brews.

A: Thin golden body with a shimmer like apple juice. A frothy white head appears quick but lasts long, lingering with a creamy retention.

S: Plump blueberry aromas stay at the top of the nose at every moment, with supporting hints of strawberry. Sweet wheat forms a soft foundation of straw and lemon tea with honey; a mild ale, it seems.

T: At first sip, it’s a blueberry palate with a crisp, trailing graininess, like blueberry cereal. The quick snap of grains is overcome by a vanilla and honey sweetness, a creamy, yogurt-like sweetness that settles lightly on the palate. A finishing touch of bright lemon and acidic berry round this off in slightly tart style.

M: Drinkable but almost overly frothy. If it’s served cold, I’m sure it would pass the hot-day-test, but the carbonation is a little too airy for me at the moment.

O: Success! A tasty blueberry ale. Unfortunately, like most blueberry beers I’ve had, this is a little thin, so I don’t think it’s any more than a light summer beer – a summer beer that’s unique enough, though, to keep me interested.

12 oz bottle courtesy of mgbickel pours a lightly hazed copper color with a very large cap of creamy white head. Retention and lacing both excellent...in fact, it started bubbling out of the bottle a little bit.

Nose is tasty blueberry goodness. Artificial - probably, but thats ok by me...its tough to get much out of blueberries when using the actual fruit. Not much else, maybe a little grains with a touch of honey...but I wouldnt have guessed if it didnt say honey on the label.

Taste is mostly artificial blueberry, but that is a flavor I dont mind at all. The base beer is light and neutral, though not as light as most fruit beers. Mouthfeel is fine, plenty of carbonation. Not bad...not too sweet, not too light. I could drink a few of these on a summer afternoon.

Poured into a Capital Brewery Tulip.

The head is very abundant and tapers off to an even thin layer with a nice lacing ready for drinking. It's a good looking golden color with bits of sediment and good carbonation. It smells of the obvious blueberry but not obnoxiously. The reason I like this beer is the fact that this beer does not taste like chemical blueberry like 90% of the other attempts at it. There is a hint of white wildflower honey that makes the finish nice and drinkable. Overall a solid beer but I am a sucker for blueberry.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Looks like a fruit beer should. Nothing out of the ordinary or outstanding. A light copper color, a rating of 3 out of 10 on the hazy factor, and fairly clear. The head is a bright contrasting white, maybe a finger thick, with the slightest hint of purple on some bubbles. Decent retention and almost no lace.

The smell is fleeting, it's there for a second and then gone. While it's there, it's clearly blueberry with a carbonated soda mixed in.

Tastes much better than I expected after the sight and smell. Instead of fake blueberry syrup, it's got an authentic, real berry taste to it. It's not overpowering like articificial flavoring, instead more of a subtle flavor. The honey is there as well, playing a supporting role for balance.

Some different feelings happening. It's tart and carbonated from the beginning, but never overly so. There's a crispness that develops as the beer works it way toward the back of the tongue. All the while, the fruit and honey display a gentle sweetness to counter the tart a bit. The finish is crisp and dry. Light bodied, the alcohol and any hops never factor in.

Could be worse. It's about 35 degrees out and I'm sure this would taste better if it was 50 degrees warmer out. It's not bad, it actually has some good qualities to it. Fairly easy to drink, particularly if you like fruit beers. The low alcohol and gentle feel make it very sessionable.

Pours a clean yellow-amber, with a massive head of fine off-white bubbles. I got no lace here!

Nose is an appealing, refreshing rush of sweet berries and a little toastiness. Not bad.

Taste is sweet and tart, but not overbearingly so. I also get more biscuity malts in the mix. Finishes with more tart blueberry goodness and a trace of hops. Very enjoyable and I will try this one again.

The beer pours a clear honey yellow with a white head that fades quickly. The nose wreaks of artificial pop tart blueberries followed by a touch of honey with a zing. The taste comes on strong with a pronounced honey sweetness followed by blueberry fruitiness that lingers. The mouthfeel is light, drinkable, slightly fruity (not over the top when drinking), but not nearly as dry finishing as I'd hoped/expected. This beer is definitely a summer beer...enjoyed during a Buffalo snow storm... but is not too bad, albeit smells and tastes relatively artificial.

Appearance: Very lightly hazed dark gold. Head is white and drops to a thin cap and collar in short order. No lacing to speak of. Pours a bit heavier than anticipated with a moderate to light carbonation. Looks a bit like honey.

Smell: Blueberry syrup mixed with macerated blueberries. Nice fresh fruit aroma layered over the top of a sugary sweet syrup. Honey pulls through the back giving a slightly floral and earthy tone to the whole thing. Vaguely bready. Some minor citrus in the back. Seriously smells like blueberry pancakes complete with syrup.

Taste: Light pale malt sweetness. A bit of cracker. Blueberry fruity sweetness. Syrupy with a backing punch of honey. Some earthiness and a huge floral note. Very pale, slightly sweet. Blueberry flavor comes across a bit syrupy at the start, but gives way to a fresher, obliterated blueberry complete with skin and flesh. Juicy. Surprising depth. Not overly complex. Touch of citrus hopping in the back.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation runs a bit light. Body is medium but feels a bit thick at times. Nice and clean.

Overall: Willy Wonka made this when he squeezed Violet Beauregarde.

A solid drinking fruit beer. A real fruit flavor with enough of the earthy honey to temper the sweetness. Nice and refreshing. I will always think of this as blueberry pancakes in a bottle.

Poured from a bottle into a La Fin Du Monde snifter. The pour is absolutely gorgeous. Beautiful clear orange-gold color with a massive head that has rather poor retentio, but leaves nice lacing on the glass. The nose is all blueberries and crisp wheat. The blueberries smell tart and earthy, not sweet.

Light body and firm mouthfeel. The flavor is crisp and slightly tart and the blueberries are not overdone. There is a dry, cracker-like wheat flavor up front and tart flavors of wild blueberries come in at mid-palate. There is a little bit of hoppy dryness on the finish, but the finish is rather short-lived and the flavors do not linger very long. I know they use honey in this beer, but I am not sure what, if any, contribution it is making to the flavor. There isn't much sweetness in this. It is crisp, wheaty, semi-dry, semi-tart, and quite refreshing.

I really enjoyed this beer from Fat Head's. I have yet to find a blueberry beer that rocks my world, but I could see myself drinking this one often. It is crisp, tart, and refreshing.

A. Pours a mostly clear goldenrod. One finger of white head fades to a quarter finger. Lacing is really good.

S. Blueberry is prominent and blends well with grainy, crackery malt. Mild resinous hops in the background.

T. Sweet honey and blueberry with some hop bitterness and slightly dry finish from the malt.

M. Moderate carbonation, perhaps a bit undercarbed as the mouthfeel is slightly cloying and sticky. Flavors are balanced nicely.

O. A very nice blueberry beer. The body carries a little bit more heft than, say, Sweetwater Blue, but still retains the fruity, light refreshing nature I seek in the style. Simple, straightforward, tasty.
