Pours cloudy golden ale with lacey head and notes of blueberries and hibiscus. Easy drinking ale with good balance of added flavors.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; no production information.
A: Pours a dusky, amber color, almost a pink golden or brass, but refracts almost pink/violet on the pour. Sports a less than half inch, foamy, white head with low retention, but decent lacing.
S: Aromas very floral initially, then reminiscent of a blueberry muffin due to blueberry, bread, vanilla, and caramel aroma components.
T: Blueberry flavor very strong with bread, grain, and grassy flavors in the background; bitterness starts in background, but leaves a somewhat harsh cumin aftertaste.
M: Light bodied with nice retention of carbonation, consisting mostly of méthode champenoise bubbles.
O: Liked the idea, enjoyed the aroma, but started to lose me with the taste. Bitterness seems most derived from fruit rind than hops. Got to work on the aftertaste.

Hands down the best beer this brewery puts out. Clean, refreshing summer beer that can carry over into fall and even winter

This is an excellent summertime Ale. Ive had it in a pint glass at the brewery and a 12 oz bottle at home. Mouthfeel is great, while the taste reminds you of a blueberry pie. I like the hibiscus tea side of the beer as it provides a nice balancing effect for the flavor. This isn't a mass produced overly artificial type summer beer that is too sweet. Just the right amount of flavor and coming in at 5.5%, an approachable beer. Great beer after mowing the lawn or working out. Very nice addition to Mt Carmel and look forward to drinking one again very soon!

Enjoyed from the growler via Jungle Jim's in a snifter. This nice ale pours a light blue/blonde hazed pinkish color with a moderate head of white foam that settles to a thick ring, thin pooling layer, and light lacing. Nose of subtle blueberries, light floral notes, and sweet honey touched wheat. Flavors follow the nose but exceed with overall roundness featuring soft wheat and subtle honey on the front, blueberries hit the middle and sides, and subtle floral notes rest on the rear with a touch of light tea and light cracker notes. Excellent mouth feel, good carbonation that keeps it lively, and a subtle dry finish. Very nice and easily a welcome summer brew.

Cheers
