Poured into a Black Raven pint glass. Pours a medium to dark coppery amber with a thin off-white head that slowly dissipates leaving light lacing. Aroma of blueberries and bready yeast, surprisingly like a blueberry muffin. Flavor starts with light sweet malt and fresh blueberries, then quickly develops a deeper biscuit malt flavor, then finishes with an almost astringent bitterness that left me searching my mind for the hop variety before I realized it must be the catnip kicking in. Finishes with lingering bitterness from the hops and catnip. Medium bodied with light creamiiness. Very interesting flavor progression with very nice fresh blueberry flavor. The catnip bitterness is harder to get used to than the more familiar hops and any hop flavors seem to be dominated by the catnip. It reminded my of camomile in its earthy bitterness. One of the better blueberry ales I've had and novel to drink.

On nitro into a plastic keg cut at Black Raven's 2013 Flock Party.

Appearance: Orange and very opaque. Thanks to the nitro, a very fluffy head of durable foam.

Aroma: This beer smells like blueberry pancakes in the best possible way. There are initial notes of berry, followed by grainy sweetness, with tropical hop character on the end.

Taste: Taste follows aroma but is a bit too sweet.

Mouthfeel: Nitro.

Overall: I loved this beer but I could see some finding it too sweet and I'm not sure I would want more than one. Certainly, this beer's scarcity, added to the experience for me.

On Tao at the Brewery on 12-21-12

A - Served a beautiful nitro creamy orange with a silky smooth creamy colored head. Of course amazing retention due to the nitro tap.

S - Blueberries and some sweet bready toast.

T - Blueberry pancakes. Very tasty, but it seems to get a bit cloying after a while.

D - Great body and Nitro. Silky smooth.

O - If you want a sweet blueberry pancake dessert. This is it.
