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.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big fresh lightly tart blueberry, blueberry skin, honey, light caramel, bread, light grass, and herbal. Very nice aromas with big authentic fruit notes with some good malt balance. Taste of honey, blueberry, cracker, bread, floral, grass, light pepper, and herbal spiciness. Slight fruit tartness on the finish; Lingering notes of honey, blueberry, cracker, bread, floral, grass, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance of breadiness with notes of fruit and honey; with zero cloying sweetness on the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a smooth, very crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice fruit beer. Nice amount of well balanced fruit and malty flavors; very crisp and smooth to drink. A very enjoyable and refreshing offering.

I got this in a beer exchange. Thanks Chris!

12oz bottle served in a standard pint glass.

L - clear copper color with a white head that thinned out and left a few spots on the glass.

S - blueberry aroma is nice.

T - the blueberry flavor is just right with a enough of a balance of malt and hops to let you know it's still a beer.

F - medium bodied with good carbonation, it goes down easy.

O - a tasty beer that's worth a try.
