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 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.

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.

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.
