On tap at Fat Heads Cleveland.
This beer just won some award naming it the best summer beer in the world. My sweetheart wanted to try this so we split a glass. The pint glass this came to the table with blueberries floating on top. Nice touch, but a tad hokey.
Looks nice when you get past the gimmick. Light gold/copper color with a small head, this beer has good lacing. Proper looking beer.
Smells of blueberry and honey with just a touch of crystal malt. Very expressive considering the ingredients and the fact this isn't an imperial or artifically flavored.
The smells translate well into the taste. This is not too multi-dimensional, but what it focuses on is a success. Honey (not sweet honey but fermented, leaving wildflower notes) dances with blueberries. The malt is crisp and clean, and there's no noticeable bitterness or alcohol.
Nice carbonation and body. It's light and crisp, and the aftertaste is clean and refreshing. This is very drinkable, probably the most drinkable beer I've had in a while. Really nice one here, not something the beer geeks will eat up, but a beer that is deserving of praise for it's light, refreshing nature.

One of the best blueberry beers I've ever tasted. It's brewed with all natural ingredients and it shows! The blueberry fruit flavor is great without being overpowering and too sweet, while the honey plays more of a part in the overall smoothness and lends well to blend the blueberry and makes it the perfect flavor. Nice head and defer lacing eapecially for a blueberry brew. It's only April, but I imagine this would be a great, refreshing, summer beer when it's hot and sunny outside on a weekend afternoon. This is for sure worth a try if you like blueberry ale!

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.
