Notes/Commercial Description:
In the Naval tradition of telling time by the ship’s bells, sailors would hear eight bells each day at noon, the perfect time to enjoy this brunch-inspired brew. We’ve added a hefty dose of blueberries to a bready base ale and finished it off, of course, with a modest helping of rich maple syrup. Just a dash of vanilla and cinnamon round out this decadent yet balanced indulgence.

Once again another thanks to rudzud.

Big creamy fizzy 1.5 finger head fades at a med pace nice lacing, bright ruby red color.

Nose is interesting, weird malt thing, little cinnamon and spice thing, sweet candy, nice blueberry, little yeast and yeast from berry.

Taste very interesting, nice blueberry up front, into cinnamon, candy, fresh blueberry flesh, cardamom, baking spices, a bit of a blueberry candy sweet bread or almost pie. Hint of maple on the back end, semi sweet. Finish is drier, little sticky, mild blueberry lingering and dessert bread.

Mouth is med bod, great carb.

Overall decent

Shared with JLindros and Threelions.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a ruby red grapefruit hue with a nice three finger white head that left a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of blueberry pie like notes, faint cinnamon, nice fruit notes, faint vanilla. No maple syrup.

T - Taste is nice blueberry, good cinnamon, light nutmeg, bready base. This is like a blueberry bread instead of say a french toast. No real maple, this instead is a very nice blueberry fruit and jam beer.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, Very crisp.

O - Overall this beer was really interesting. Very fun blueberry notes, light bread, nice cinnamon. Tasty.
