Had on tap at the brewery. Brewed with blueberries, honey and biscuit malt.

A: Pours a cloudy light amber with a good finger of withe head.

S: Berry fruit aroma and some light malt.

T: Blueberry upfront followed by a hint of honey sweetness. Light malt and mild hop bitterness.

M: Light body with great carbonation.

O: A nice refreshing summer beer that's not too much on the sweet or fruity side.

On Tap at Whole Foods.

Blueberry Honey Biscuit Monkey looks the pale way with a light golden look with some bronze popping out. A semi shine with some tannish bubbles that cling sporadically. Fresh off the tap, I can pick upthe blueberry upfront, it's right there. Some malt in the background and some earthy hop aroma, mixed with small grain. Taste is blueberry 1st with a semi hoppy pale base with the hops. This is on the sweet side and the malt smoothes things out. Earthy with blueberry in the back as well. The body is a bit up from light with a long berry aftertaste. Carb is there, activity, While a nice beer, I don't think I can stomach even 10 oz of this stuff. Interesting, not the most drinkable pale out there.

Had on tap at Kelleher's in Peoria during their "12 beers of Christmas".

Poured all golden and hazy with moderate white foam. Smelled exactly like a Blueberry pancake! Carb'd like an American Pale Ale, not too thin or thick at all in the mouth, just right.

Tasted moderately sweet, not much malt complexity. Nice base malt, light crystals, and honey taste. Blueberry is there too, though less pronounced from than the smell. Finishes with some spicy hops.

Alright wacky brew, wouldn't shank someone for it though.
