T- Taste is very unique as well, blueberries, slight tartness, carbonation is evident.
M- Medium Mouthfeel, nice carbonation, nice tarty bite to it. Very refreshing.
O- Delicious fruit beer, I was a little let down with the taste, was expecting something different from the aroma, but still was a treat to taste this beer.

Draft. Wow, what a special treat! This one wasn't on the board or the menu. Pours a very hazy purple opaque color with a head that is slightly tinted blue/purple. Farily strong sweet blueberry aroma. The taste is pretty amazing and like nothing I have had before but you better like blueberries if you are drinking this. Sweet subtle blueberry flavors pretty much dominate the flavor profile. Medium mouthfeel. Good lace. A nice refreshing beer.

New batch at Town Hall

Poured into a chalice.

Served with a small white head. Color is a blueberry purple. Very nice appearance.

Aroma: Blueberries, lemongrass, fruits with some citrus, wheat, and honey.

Taste: Sweet, yet a bit tart. The blueberries are very fresh. Lemongrass, wheat, honey. A lot like the regular thunderstorm. I also detect a bit of mint flavors.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and refreshing. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends dry and fruity.

Overall, this beer is awesome. Very drinkable and my glass did not last long. I was very impressed with the addition of the blueberries on this one. A must try.

The Thunderstorm honey & lemongrass ale, infused and aged with 13 pounds of blueberries.

A 10 ounce serving in a snifter. Full blown purple, with little head.

Tart & fruity nose, big, sweet, & rosy.

Crisp and bold up on top, but thins out a bit after awhile. It's everything if claims to be, Thunderstorm with blueberries. Loads of fruit punch, then an alcoholic kick.

That's as far as my notes go...a very nice brew, worth the trying. And savoring.
