Wanted to love this beer, because this style is right up my alley, but I can't quite get there. Still giving it a solid rating, because a lot of the pieces are in place; great blue/purple tint, nice nose, and the pie crust, vanilla, and spice flavors are fabulous. But there was a distinct and odd note throughout - something I'd describe as Green Olive. Maybe that was just how the fruit bitter of the blueberries came through in this particular bottle, but it was pronounced and it was off.

I'm still reserving final judgment until I get another bottle to see if maybe I got a strange one. It was almost fantastic, but a handful of green olives sprinkled on my blueberry dessert wasn't quite what I was hoping for.

For all the chatter about Funky Buddha needing to tone down the spice and turn up the fruit, I'm kind of thinking this one bottle, anyway, might have been better served by the opposite?

Thanks to Callmecoon for sharing this one at Skuter's tasting.

Pours a hazy light orange-red with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, and slight berry aromas. Taste is much the same with cinnamon, vanilla, pie crust, and slight berry flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with aromas and flavors that are fairly similar to the dessert.

Serving type: bottle.

Thanks to Mike for this one! It really doesn't taste like much.....until the finish. Sweet caramel, cinnamon and vanilla with a slight blueberry flavor. The finish lingers for quite some time. It drinks like a normal Hefe until the finish. Very nice!
