On tap at Fat Head's.

Pours a light golden color with an ample white head and a bit of lacing as it goes down. So far, so good. After that, this was a fruit beer gone all wrong. The nose wreaked of blueberry syrup, which isn't the worst thing in the world for pancakes, but didn't work at all for this beer. There was a touch of honey and some sweet malt meandering in the background, but the strong, strong, strong blueberry presence was about all I can smell.

The taste went along similar lines with the addition of plenty of sweetness. There was a lot of residual sweetness in this. The combination of blueberry and the sweetness plus honey reminded me a bit of drinking the milk of a blueberry cereal. Fond memories of childhood, but not something I'm looking for in a beer. It was simply far too cloying and, aside from that, very one-dimensional. The feel was just too over the top. I really didn't want to drink that much of this.

Moving to the good things, I will say that there were no obvious brewing flaws with this--it simply is a recipe I really did not care for.

A- Pours a clear golden color with a hint of amber to it. Nice white head, that has good retention and leaves a bit of spotty lacing.

S- Picking up quite a bit of sweetness, honey and blueberry. A touch of malts here too.

T- Taste is blueberries every where. A honey is here too. A good amount of sweetness and bready.

M- Lighter side in body and a good amount of carbonation.

O- Not my type of thing. Better than I expected.

Poured a bottle of this into my perfect pint glass. Less than a finger of what head, gone in a few minutes, literally no sign of any head at all...no lacing. Coloring is decent, burnt orange, amber, but it actually looks like it does not have much texture to it...watery looking. Not particularly fond of the smell. Too fruity, but there are some fruit beers I enjoy the smell of, not this. Smells like a lager, almost, with SOME sweetness, not what I anticipated. I guess it's blueberry that I am smelling. Taste is similar, fruit, no honey, which is why I wanted to try this beer. Blueberry, tart, minimal malt character, some hops, not great. Mouthfeel is ruined by the taste. Combination with what generally would be a legit amount of carbonation is off-putting with the taste of this particular beer. Overall, disappointed, considering how much I love Head Hunter. Anyway, glad I tried it, but was looking for more honey. Cheers.
