what would you name it? You ask. Why I would call this Big Birds blueberry Poo after a years worth of sitting in the sun. This stuff is absolutely disgusting and isn't fit for a sewer rat or let alone an X. F- absolutely no redeeming qualities.

Evokes a very specific childhood memory of blueberry pancakes from a box, with a little tin of "wild" blueberry. Processed. Not delicious.

On tap at Fat Head's.

Pours a light golden color with an ample white head and a bit of lacing as it goes down. So far, so good. After that, this was a fruit beer gone all wrong. The nose wreaked of blueberry syrup, which isn't the worst thing in the world for pancakes, but didn't work at all for this beer. There was a touch of honey and some sweet malt meandering in the background, but the strong, strong, strong blueberry presence was about all I can smell.

The taste went along similar lines with the addition of plenty of sweetness. There was a lot of residual sweetness in this. The combination of blueberry and the sweetness plus honey reminded me a bit of drinking the milk of a blueberry cereal. Fond memories of childhood, but not something I'm looking for in a beer. It was simply far too cloying and, aside from that, very one-dimensional. The feel was just too over the top. I really didn't want to drink that much of this.

Moving to the good things, I will say that there were no obvious brewing flaws with this--it simply is a recipe I really did not care for.

A- Pours a clear golden color with a hint of amber to it. Nice white head, that has good retention and leaves a bit of spotty lacing.

S- Picking up quite a bit of sweetness, honey and blueberry. A touch of malts here too.

T- Taste is blueberries every where. A honey is here too. A good amount of sweetness and bready.

M- Lighter side in body and a good amount of carbonation.

O- Not my type of thing. Better than I expected.
