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

Bumble Berry Honey Blueberry Ale from Fat Heads Brewery & Saloon, recommended by a friend. Poured from what looks to be a semi-squatter (?) bottle into a glass, this brew's head grows from nearly four finger thickness to barely a half in what seemed like no time at all. Very, very impressive lacing and a medium amber body for ol' Bumble Berry.

Smells like blueberries, but not overpowering. Just enough.

Taste is the same, its there but not too much. The same goes here with the honey taste. Both overall do not impede upon the overall taste of the brew itself. A crisp maltiness is also perceived by yours truly. Very refreshing indeed!

Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. I mean this is beyond smooth, especially for ANYTHING past 5% abv that I've drank in entire life.

Overall, an outstanding 4 is achieved from Bumble Berry Honey Blueberry Ale from Fat Heads Brewery & Saloon, This is just SO refreshing, not overbearing in any aspect. Juuust right. I will buy this brew again, you can count on that.
