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!

Light straw/golden in color with a slight haze, this beer produces a very slight head of foam that fizzes into nothing in minutes. The nose on this beer is fruit/berry- like with a sweet wheat malt backing.

This beer offers a mild flavor of wheat and blueberries. The blueberry flavor is moderate and it does taste natural, which is good. The wheat malt backbone isn’t very strong, but it’s sufficient and it keeps the blueberries in check. There is little in the way of hop character, but this is expected for a style such as this.

I have to admit this is a very refreshing beer and it makes a good summertime drinking option. I would prefer a little more body and a little nicer appearance, but this beer is still good for what it is. It’s the type of beer that will go over well with the shandy crowd and others who like their beer to taste a little sweeter and more approachable. Some added blueberries would actually improve this beer but it’s still pretty good on its own.
