Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 12-13-2001

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.

Light golden pour with thin white head. Aroma is a little yeast and some blueberry. Taste is crisp and dry, again with some blueberry. As the brewer states, this is not loaded with extra flavors, so the mild blueberry flavor is to be expected. Nice and refreshing, but overall a little bland all-around

Enjoying my first one tonight. Very nice blueberry taste with a slight hoppy bite. Almost too
slight. Not a lot of kick (5%) but it definitely reminds you of Bar Harbor Maine with it's subtle
aroma and fizz is quite enjoyable.

btw, would someone care to enlighten me why a "head" on a beer is soooo important? Why
would you pour it in a glass to get warm?

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber with a finger-width cream head. Reasonable carbonation and some lacing.

Aroma: Smells of blueberries, wheat, a touch of hops, and a little faint spicy zest.

Taste: This beer starts out mild, with more of an accent of blueberry than a dominant flavor. It has the characteristics of a nice wheat pale ale. Blueberry gets more noticeable as it warms, revealing a slight syrupy taste. Wheat taste stays present throughout.

Mouthfeel: Pretty decent body for a fruit beer. Good for spring or fall as well as summer.

Overall: This is a pretty decent blueberry beer that is complex and interesting enough to keep you engaged. Some of the citrus and lemon of a traditional wheat butts up against the blueberries in a slightly odd way, and the taste does get syrupy as it warms. It's a nice offering, though.
