Received in a trade and shared with JLindros and Threelions.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice very hazy blueberry juice hue with a thin one finger head that faded to leave light halo and thin wisps.

S - Aromas of faint blueberry, odd baking spice notes, cinnamon, allspice, all purpose flour, clove, very batter like. Eh...

T - Taste is just fun, heavily spiced with lots of cloves, all spice, cinnamon, blueberry, light tartness, it is overly spiced, the longer it sits the better it gets. Starts to taste like a blueberry cobbler, dough, blueberry sweetness, light brown sugar. Really can't stress how much this tastes like a blueberry cobbler, albeit a heavily spiced one.

M - Mouthfeel is a bit on the thinner side, lightly carbonated.

O - Overall this was a very nicely executed beer, though spiced more than I would have liked. If the spice wasn't as heavy this would be a homerun.

5.6% abv growler split with Rudzud and JLindros.

A: Pours into a Treehouse tulip an impressive, thick, murky pink/purple very natural, non artificial blueberry color. Deceptive, low head. No lacing or legs.

S: Right up front there are loads and loads of allspice and possibly juniper berries/cloves. Very interesting and complex baking spice notes that aren't necessarily great. Sort of falls short on the cobbler aspect. Cinnamon, cloves, almost abrasive amounts of spice, far too spicy.

T: Sweet, doughy flour like flavor, what?! How is that even possible? Very tasty like undercooked dough, juniper berries, allspice, blueberry and then vanilaa. So doughy, but still too spicy.

M: For a week old growler of a fruit/vegetable beer this did not disappoint. Nice carbonation, great malt presence. Great job.

O: I'm reviewing this from notes and the first line for overall just read 'damn good' so that says a lot. This was a great attempt at a blueberry cobbler beer. Really good. Overall it was too spicy but had an exceptional doughy character. If I got the chance to talk to the brewers at Funky Buddha I would definitely not tell them to go back to the drawing board but would ask them to refine it a little. Baking spices are hard to capture in a beer for sure. They seem to either be unnoticeable or are in your face and in this case they are too much. Dial it back a bit and this would be completely amazing, instead of just pretty damn good. So good, just delicious. Would definitely drink and buy in the future.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Fair fluffy slight creamy head that hits 1/2 finger but fades quite quickly, little lacing, murky hazy solid cartoon color purple blueberry rosy reddish color.

Nose is weird, baking spices, allspice, clove, maybe a juniper thing, tart blueberry, green blueberry, hint vinous barrel and touch of buttery oak, touch stem, touch grainy malt thing, little cinnamon and raw batter. Blueberry increases as it warms.

Taste is very much like a blueberry cobbler, a bit heavy on spices but great. Doughy crust at first, cinnamon and spices, baked pie crust, doughy, hint allspice, clove a bit heavy too. Then blueberry, nice blueberry pie filling, little sweet sugar note with it, touch green blueberry tartness, etc. Juicy blueberry fruit too. Finish brings a bit more of the spices, bitterness from then, but great cobbler almost pie crust notes, nice blueberry, etc. 45

Mouth is med bod, lighter carb, nice feel.

Overall it had some downfalls but still just crazy awesome as a blueberry cobbler. Amazing cobbler flavours, great blueberry, well rounded, delicious. Spices are a bit high is probably the real downfall.
