look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

On tap at the brewery's grand opening. Served in a plastic cup.

Appearance - Hazy, deep orange with a slight purple hue. Nice white head. Lasts forever.

Smell - Less fruit than other flavors. Vanilla, wheat, some fruit. A little grainy. Not a distinct blueberry aroma.

Taste - Like the aroma, but more creamy vanilla. Wheat graininess. More distinct blueberry flavor. Creamy with a strong wheat flavor at the same time. Interesting.

Mouthfeel - Light. Drinkable. Flavorful, but ultimately not my style.

Overall - Too many adjuncts to interest me for a whole glass. Does a good job of fulfilling its intentions though.

Served on tap in a shaker pint glass

A - slightly hazy purple/rose hue with bubbly pinkish 1.5 finger head with good retention, average thin lacing

S - One of the most unique smells I've experienced in a beer, strong vanilla notes, but by golly, this straight up smells like my moms blueberry cobbler, with a hint of nostalgia.

T - Sweet blueberries take the cake here, or the cobbler, vanilla, light and springy, not a hint of bitterness, off notes, or booze, this beer is an unapologetic clever dessert drink.

M - Light body, moderate carbonation. Sticky

O - I love how off the wall some of FBs beers are and this one was my favorite from my session. Daffy yet well executed.

On-tap, served in a tulip glass

The body sits a smashed blueberry color. A pretty shade of purple with a faint purple colored two fingers of foam. Some great staying power and the cap left some faint lacing on the glass.

Nose is of sugar, blueberries, vanilla beans, soft toasted oats....it smells like a blueberry cobbler. I could smell this guy all day.

The flavors all pummel the palate in unison. A combination of blueberries, sugar, vanilla beans, and toasted oats all rush onto the scene, leaving a sugary, blueberry finish behind. I was a little taken aback at first, pretty much because I had no idea what to expect. After a couple of sips my palate acclimated and the finish was still a little too sweet for my tastes.

Light body with mild carbonation. Smooth, not a whole lot of body here.

Unique does not begin to describe this beer. Ryan has proved to me again that he knows how to incorporate fruit better than most I have come across and does so in a way you wouldn't imagine a beer to taste like. This beer tastes as advertised. Blueberry Cobbler in a glass, this was just a little too sweet for my liking.

Had this on draft at the Funky Buddha for the Wide Awake It's Morning release.

A - Pours a hazy, purple / bluish color with a thin off white head.

S - Loads of tart blueberries and cinnamon spice in the nose. Smells just like an Entenmann's coffee cake.

T - Like the nose, I get a ton of blueberry on the palate, followed by a blend of vanilla, cinnamon spice and some graham cracker on the finish. This one is sweet, but not overly sweet...nicely balanced IMO.

M - Medium bodied and creamy with good carbonation.

O - This is a great take on a blueberry cobbler / American wheat and is incredibly easy to drink. I wouldn't necessarily sit down and tip these all night, but for a change of pace or a dessert type beer, this one is excellent.

On tap at the buddha yesterday for Wide Awake Its Morning release.

After the bourbon aged RIS, i chose this beer to settle down and clear my pallette up a little bit. Turns out i was having dessert in a glass before i even went out to dinner last nite! I think they said they used about 30 lbs of real blueberries in the batch, and you could tell by the color, looked like a fresh batch of blueberries went into a blender and out came this beer! Very sweet, a bit too sweet for a regular drinking beer, for sure an after dinner beer this is. I would absolutely love to see a big 10% abv version of this beer, i think it could rival my absolute fav fruit beer, DFH Black & Blue.

Another incredible beer that I missed out on the first time they brewed it. On draft at the Wide Awake It’s Morning release but just under a different name "Blueberry Cobbler". Blue color with carbonation. Aroma is straight up blueberry cobbler. Incredibly easy to drink. Would drink any day of the week.
