Notes: 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.

I had this beer on tap at the 10 Penny in Pittsburgh. I have always enjoyed beers from this brewery, so it was a no brainer to have a pint.

The beer is gold with a white head and nice lacing.

Berries, grains and something very floral in the nose.

The beer is fruit forward with some sweetness and more grains in the finish. It's a bit flowery and sweet mid glass.

The mouth is light and crisp.

This is a nice summer beer!

This one is a clear dark yellow-gold. It forms an off-white head that initially rises to a strong two fingers in height and leaves a thick foam when it recedes. The head that remains drops a good amount of sticky lacing in patches all the way down.
Blueberry is strong off the nose, pouring out of the bottle before I empty it into my glass. That said, for as strong as the blueberry is I have no problem picking out the crackery dry malts that lay down a firm backbone. The blueberry is fresh and there's just enough of a light herbal hops note to this beer to add an element without distracting.
This is one of the better fruit beers out there as far as how flavorful it is, how natural it is, and how all of the different notes integrate together. The blueberry, dry malts and light hops work very nicely. Malts are very wheat-like. I have to give an edge to the aroma only because I get just a hint of graininess coming underneath into the finish.
This is a light ale, and the body is appropriate for the style. It's also pretty smooth. There's something about how the play between the crispness and the herbal dryness, both fine in themselves, seems a little funny to me. I think it may be that they both linger into the finish and, while either by itself is good, there's an interesting sort of clash happening ever so slightly.

Pours into glass with a foamy head. Clear and light straw color. Taste is light and fruity, with hint of honey and blueberry. Not overwhelmingly sweet. Mouthfeel is not terribly bubbly.
One of my favorite beers.

Just got this in a trade recently, and I reallllyyy enjoyed it. The blueberry is very pronounced in the smell and taste. The honey adds to the great flavor. I expected this beer to be very sweet, but they were able to pull of the blueberry/honey combo without that being an issue whatsoever. Wish I had more than one bottle of this. Go try it!

From the bottle: Golden yellow..slight cloudiness. Head lasted to the end w/good lacing. Flavors of blueberry, honey, and wheat. Smooth and meaty on the palette w/ no bitterness. Balanced more toward the sweeter notes. Overall a good pour. Will keep this one in stock. Worth the coin.

Pours a clear amber. Silky head. Slight honey aroma. Pretty mild taste. Not a lot of blueberry or honey. Could be maltier. An average blueberry ale.
