Thanks to my good friend Jesse13713 for splitting a bottle of this with me; served into tulip pint.

A: Pour is mostly clear; amber colored, quite closely resembling an American pale ale. One finger of head tops off the glass, but falls away quite quickly.

S: Faint blueberry flavors show up in the smell, along with wheat and crackers. Quite malt-forward, even if the malts aren't overpowering. I'm not getting much in the way of hops.

T: Big, tart blueberry flavors come through here. While not being a huge fan of fruit beers in general, I'm reviewing this one to style and it's quite solid. I imagine this would be perfect on a hot summer day (rather than the cool summer night I enjoyed it on), and I'm sure it would go over quite well among friends or family who aren't into craft beer even a little bit.

M: Quite dry, probably owing to the honey. Medium bodied, with lively carbonation. Definitely very refreshing.

O: A good beer, I certainly hope it's available if I'm ever in Ohio again on one of those 100 degree days where you can feel the humidity. If not, I have no qualms picking this up and bringing it to any kind of gathering where I can get others into craft beer. By no means do I mean to diminish this beer's quality; it is well brewed and hits the mark it is aiming for, it just so happens that that flavor seems like it would appeal to almost anyone willing to have a beer of any sort. While its bottling may limit its availability on tap, if you do see this one, it's worth checking out.

Serving Type - Bottle

Appearance - Golden tan with a minimal 1/8th head. Minor lacing.

Smell - Very dominate blueberry. A little honey is detected but its really all blueberry.

Taste - Pretty much like the smell, straight up blueberry with some honey sweetness. Near the finish theres pilsner like malt backbone. Not much more to say really.

Mouthfeel - Tongue gets blueberries. Palate gets remaining blueberries, a little honey and malt. Aftertaste is crisp blueberries, slight malts.

Overall - It is what it is, a straight up smooth, easy drinker that's all about blueberries. And they taste like real blueberry, not a sugar induced artificial creation. If you like blueberry you must try.

The Bumble Berry Honey Blueberry Ale from Fat Head's is ok....but keep in mind I'm not a fruit/lambic fan. Any blueberry beers I would compare with my favorite the Sammy A's blueberry lager. This beer poured a nice clear copper with nice head that is not leaving a lacing. The scent certainly carries blueberries and some biscuit. The taste has blueberry and maybe a touch of sweetness....very dry on the back end with strong alcohol taste for only a 5% abv. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it good and worth a try....just not in my wheel house genre.

I poured this into a glass, it has a golden color body with a small head to it. The smell is of fresh blueberries and smells sweet. The taste is up front blueberries with a little honey, then a little malt on the finish and a hint of blueberry on the tongue. Mouthfeel is smooth and overall a very tasty beer.

Bumble Berry Honey Blueberry Ale brewed by Fat Heads Brewery & Saloon. This brew pours out a nice cloudy amber color with a nice white head. This is an unfiltered brew you can not see thought it. The smell is sweet with berries and grains. I like how this brew is not like most brews on the market. The taste is nice, clean ,smooth, and refreshing. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. No bad aftertaste it clean and smooth. The mouthfeel is nice as well. This is not what I was expecting. I would get this brew again. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4.5 out of 5
