Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Yellow body, lacey. A classic farmhouse with a blueberry tartness. A little funk in the aroma. Carbonation a bit up there. Decently drinkable, nicely done.Another decent fruit beer for this brewery, and it is the authentic fruit there.

On tap at Bullfrog Brewery in Williamsport, PA.

This one pours a mostly clear light purplish color, with a small head, and a good amount of lacing.

Unfortunately, don't get a whole lot blueberry on the nose. I do get a lot of perfume and cloveyness. It says it's brewed with 3 yeasts, including Brett, but I don't get a whole lot of Brett here. Confounding!

The taste is pretty similar, a super subtle amount of blueberry, and basically no Brett. This one kinda failed. All that's left is a perfumy and clovey saison, very average. I'm used to better from Bullfrog.

This one has a medium bodied feel to it, with a higher level of carbonation.

Wouldn't order this one again, wasn't a huge fan of it.

The beer pours a light copper amber color with fairly good head retention and lacing. The is a bit puzzling, as the blueberry component just seems a bit unusual in this pale ale. I get something of sauterne aroma, but with the blueberry becoming more prominent as it warmed. There was also a hint of underlying citrus as well that was nice. The flavor profile replicates the nose, and one thing that's attractive about this beer, is that nothing os overdone. This is a fairly light pale ale to begin with, one where the blueberry component seemed to beef up the flavor profile. So this is a pleasant, very easy drinking, slightly sweeet, fruit flavored pale ale. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, with a fairly long, lightly bitter finish. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, further enhancing this beer's drinkability.

Interesting effort.

The website says this is "new" although it looks like it's a beer they've brewed before. It has some characteristics of a saison and it is enjoyable, but I wish it had a stronger blueberry flavor - I probably wouldn't even notice the blueberry flavor if I didn't know it was in there.
