Reviewed from notes. Had on tap at CCB tasting room. Poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a medium brown in color, some haziness. There is a good amount of visible carbonation, leading to a cream-colored head.

S: Amazing. Blueberry, cinnamon, and somewhat grainy or bready. This is exactly what one would expect from a beer with this name.

T: Taste follows the nose, with maybe a bit less sweetness than I expected. Biscuity malt flavor (or maybe muffin malts?), and the cinnamon and spice flavors really come through well. The blueberry flavor, while present up front, does not seem overly artificial.

M: Decent mouthfeel, although thinner than I expected. The cinnamon hangs after the swallow, but it's a nice aftertaste.

O: I think this was really good, and is easily my favorite blueberry beer I've ever had. The blueberry flavor wasn't too sweet or cloying, which is a wonderful improvement over most others I've had. I don't think I would drink it every day, but given the right mood (or for brunch) it really excels.

On tap at Bx Beer Depot. Served in a taster glass.

Appearance - Deep brown body. No head. Hint of a reddish tinge.

Smell - Blueberry, but it isn't strong. Spices and caramel malt. A bit of a corn aroma.

Taste - More blueberry. Some sweet caramel. Spicy. Dry in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Dry with a minimal bitterness. Medium low body.

Overall - Not sold on it. Doesn't scream blueberry muffin, but I get the idea.

Serves a nice dark beer. Some foam on the top. Smells a bit like blueberry muffin, and something sweet. Taste is really good, the brown ale is sweet enough to pair perfectly with the blueberry muffin taste. The beer actually tastes like a packaged blueberry muffin. Mouthfeel is light.

I specially enjoy brown ales, so this one for me is a sure repeat.
