Notes/Commercial Description:
A light fruit ale, made with Maine wild blueberries. As opposed to many of the sweeter fruit beers on the market, our addition of fresh Maine wild blueberries in this light ale yields a subtle blueberry aroma, without the sweet aftertaste. A mixture of the following Mutton malts, pale, crystal, and Munich, are combined with wheat to give this ale its lighter body, and we only use minimal amounts of Target and Willamette hops.

Pours a golden caramel in color with reddish hues. Fizzy tan head that disappears to nothing. Malty nose with hints of blueberry. Somewhat perfumey with a touch of hops. The mouthfeel is thinnish and carbonated. The taste is uninspiring and bland. Very quiet front. Everything arrives in the finish. There's toasted malt with a blend of caramel. Hop dryness wraps things up.

It's amazing the odd lack of flavor this beer exhibits. I didn't expect to be overwhelmed by a blueberry flavor, but being a blueberry ale, it's only apparent in the nose. Nothing carries into the taste. I can't even suggest something to pair this with... perhaps best by itself or left on the store shelf.

Overall the best fruit-beer I've ever had. Enjoyed this at the Bangor Brew Fest and have savored a six pack at least once a month since. Very robust blueberry taste and freshness, but i don't think this flavor would mix well with a stout as it is just too powerful. Great for beginners starting on craft/micro-brew beer looking for a delightful mix of seasonal flavors and costal brews. I have really enjoyed it, I'm sure you will!
