look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Clear and pale yellow color with a one finger head and a nice foam that holds strong. Good bubbling.

Very faint blueberry powder and some toasty, adjuncty bitter smelling malt.

The taste starts out fruity and blueberry-y. The middle has lightly toasted and on malted barley flavors along with some lightly bitter adjunct malt flavors.

Palate is crisp and refreshing. Easy to drink, but lacking in teh flavor and aroma department.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

on-tap at Fat Frogg, 16oz tumbler

Appearance is a clear dark golden color that features a very small white head that completely disappears about halfway through. No lacing at all, very boring appearance. Smell is cooked (baked) blueberries with a hint of pale malt in the back. Taste is of sweet and bready blueberries, again the blueberries come off as cooked. Not a bad taste, the blueberries come out nice and strong, no hops detected. Mouthfeel is medium light and medium low carb, very mellow.

This is much better than I thought it would be and better than the other fruit beer I have had (#9). Ultimately this beer is a bit too sweet and could use a hint of hops to help the finish and make it taste more like a beer. The taste is most akin to a blueberry cobbler, definitely not fresh blueberries.

Serving type: on-tap
