Much thanks to velcrogrip for this fresh growler!

Appearance: Murky, rusty brown with no head and not much carbonation.

Smell: Smells like a blueberry smoothie with a hint of granola, sweet.

Taste: There's a granola backbone with blueberry that rides over the top. They both balance each other out nicely and fade out together pretty equally. This is just so easy and fun to drink. It really does taste like a granola bar. I'm sure that people who like Blue Point's Blueberry Ale would love this.

Mouthfeel: It's on the lighter side despite looking somewhat dark. There is a definite lack of carbonation, perhaps they felt that the taste would be conveyed better with lower carbonation in this particular brew? Either way, this beer is so delicious that I'd probably drink it even if it was totally flat!

Overall: I just love the taste of this, never had anything like it before. If they bottled this and gave it a bit more carbonation, I could see this being a home-run beer that would rope in craft beer enthusiasts and BMC drinkers alike. Despite the lacking mouthfeel, this beer is delicious.

Treatment Tuesday beer. Growler into a bells tulip.

A: Murkey brown color, just looks thick in the glass. Not much head on this beer, actually just a touch flat.

A: Smells exactly like the name suggests, a blueberry granola bar. The grainy granola is prominent. I get a very nice sweetness from the blueberries and chocolate malt.

T: Again, this is nuts, exactly like a granola bar. Follows the nose, granola and grains up front followed by a sugary sweetness. It finishes smooth and sweet.

M: again it was a little flat. I've held onto ccb growlers for a couple weeks before and they're always spot on, maybe it was the treatment, but it just didn't have the carbonation you'd expect from ccb. So a bit oily on the palate. Medium body.

O: Crazy treatment. One I would love to have again. Just nuts how much this tasted like a granola bar.
