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.

My favorite blueberry ale; one of the most authentic fruit beers to be had. And as with all authentic offerings, the genius is in its simplicity and subtlety: Unlike other fruit beers that rely on artificial flavorings, this one is has only traces of blueberries in its taste and smell - noticeable but not overpowering enough to be fake. It's beer with a hint of blueberry, not the other way around; the kind of ale that even a no-nonsense ale traditionalist would enjoy.
