Brewed with fresh harvested spring honey and infused with fresh blueberries. A light, refreshing ale with a nice blueberry aroma, crackery malt flavors, a hint of sweetness and a refreshing blueberry finish.

12 oz cans canned 6/22/23 into a Becher glass.
L: Pours slightly yeast hazed light apricot with a thin head that recedes quickly to zero, lite carbo bubbles, no lacing.
S: Pungent blueberry, citrus, cereal grains, plastic/PVC.
T: Blueberry muffin, peach, light citrus, a hint of melon, light yeast, honey throughout, lightly sweet overall, it is wafting in the palate with lighter tastes, has an ill-fitting halo of plastic.
F: Gently brisk, watery, glassy medium-light body with a mildly juicy and clean feel with a medium length lightly dry finish.
O: I can tell there's a decent honey ale here however the blueberry flavor tastes plastic and fake. It is poor in its style. **Added note later: I poured a can into a plastic cup and it tasted better that the previous glass pour. So I've adjusted and raised my rating a bit.

I don't know about "Most refreshing beer in America", but not bad. A pretty amber color with significant head. Blueberry to the nose, tamed by the honey mix in it. Surprisingly not sticky like some mixes on this order. Not bad at all.

Slight light khaki colored froth with limited retention... Completely translucent golden yellow with a bit of carbonation rising throughout... Light nose of blueberry, wheat and corn... Flavor profile is interesting and unique... The blueberry is subtle but still present in each sip... This sits a top a malty base with a hint of honey mixed in... On the lighter side of medium bodied... Even and consistent... Interesting and unique summer offering...

On tap at the ballpark.

A - Dark medium gold with nice clarity (and a slight blue tinge), dense white lacing.

S - Light honey malt with juicy blueberry over the top.

T - Solid honey malt base with juicy blueberry over top while finishing balanced with a slight nod to the sweeter side.

M - Full body (for a lighter ABV Ale) with gentle carbonation working it's way through the thickness.

O - Not a beer style I would pursue but rock solid for what it is and that's what counts.

12oz can. Illegible date stamping on bottom lip of can.
Mostly clear, pale gold colored body. One finger of white head. Leaves behind multiple spots of lacing.
Aroma of blueberry laid over toasted malts.
Taste is blueberry sweetened with honey, with a toasted malt base. Main taste profile extends into the aftertaste.
Thicker than medium mouth feel, with a bit of a buzz, but not quite bitter. Clean and tight finish. Very good carbonation.
Very refreshing and easy to drink. Has a fizz to go along with the berry sweetness.

From draft at a wedding. Crisp, refreshing, sweet and blueberry filled. I enjoy blueberries, and this beer is very enjoyable and sessionable. Gold pour, brief head to a lacing.

On tap in Cedar Point. Poured a clear, bright orange color with a good-sized, khaki-colored head of foam. It left sticky rings of lace on the plastic cup. It smelled of blueberry, more berries and some sweet honey. Very sweet tasting beer with honey and lots of berry taste. Low bitterness.

12 oz. can of Fat Heads Bumble Berry with a July 2021 canning date stamped on the bottom edge.
Appearance.  Orange-amber colored body with a decent off-white head.
The aroma has a clear blueberry note while the flavor carries a more generic mixed berry impression.  Despite the "honey blueberry ale" description, which it definitely fits, this fruity beer is not sweet.  Instead you get a mildly bitter and faintly tart flavor.
Mouthfeel.  Lively medium-high carbonation in a near medium body.
