This is Ellicottville's lowest rated beer? Impossible! It is my personal favorite. If you don't like fruit beer then don't bother but if you want something different it is a must.

Get it on tap at one of their locations and they through in FRESH BLUEBERRIES into your drink! It makes for a nice addition.

Get this on tap at the bar...they put blueberries in it! Makes it look exceptional. The smell and taste are nearly perfect. Nice real genuine blueberry taste and aroma. Nice wheaty backbone. Not too malty. I wish this was distributed over a much larger area. I think it could soar.

Pours a light golden color with a nice white head that is about one finger. The smell is a blueberries, it isn't over the top blueberry though. There is also some wheat in there. The taste is of blueberries over a nice malt taste. The mouthfeel is of moderate carbonation. Overall this is a very drinkable beer, crisp and refreshing, you could have a number of these.

Appearance- It is a nice straw yellow color. There are a lot of bubbles in the body and that forms a lot of head and lace.

Smell- You can smell the berries right away. It has little complex fruity smell past the initial berry blast as well.

Taste- There is more to this beer than the berries. You can still taste the malt and some very mild hops.

Mouthfeel- I a lot of fizz bite but for the most part light.

Drinkability- Very refreshing and easy to drink.

Ellicottville Blueberry Wheat Ale

Aroma: Light bright crackery aroma up front. Light bread crust notes with low berry character. Fermentation character is clean and dry.

Appearance: Pale yellow slightly hazy pour with a low bright white head.

Flavor: Pleasant mix of blueberries with some crusty bread –like notes. It reminds me of taking a bite of blueberry pie! There is an underlying earthy bitterness to balance out the fruit and malt character. Finish is clean and dry. There is a slight sourdough aftertaste that is pleasant and adds depth of character.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with high carbonation. A slight carbonic bite is noted. There is no alcohol heat or astringency detected.

Overall impression: A refreshing, clean fruit beer. There is enough base beer character to enjoy it with light fruit accents that keep things unique and interesting. Well done!

3.98/5  rDev +9.3%

A- Bright yellow color, clear, half finger thick head that faded to a thin ring around the glass

S- Strong auroma of blueberries, light malts, hint of citrus hops

T- Fresh blueberries, grains, wheat, sugar, hint of other berries near the end

M- Light/medium body, medium carbonation, crisp, fruity, sweet

D- Worth buying again

This ranks near the top end of the blueberry beers that I've tried over the years, although not a lot of complexity.

I picked a six of these up when our ski bus stopped at a grocery store in Ellicottville. This was a great refreshing beer after a hard day of skiing and several stronger beers earlier in the day. It is a pretty subtle, well balanced taste that I think is mostly designed for easy drinking. The fruit taste is subtle, but so are the hops, malt and yeast tastes,so it works.

The appearance is that of a flat, light beer. A pale yellow.

But even though I usually prefer bolder tastes, this one gets a thumbs up for what it is. I think they met their goals admirably
