12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---Clear copper with a nice thick white head that left good lacing.

S---All I get is blueberries, but that's what's advertised, so....

T---Again, straight blueberries.

F---Nicely carbonated, giving it a fruity fizz.

O---Could use a bit more complexity, it's all blueberries all the time. But that's what's advertised, so....

12oz bottled on 06/21/17 11:22 poured heavily into my libbey's porter glass.

Appearance- a transparent copper color with a super frothy off white head. leaves minimal lacing.

Aroma- blueberries and honey.

Taste- a light graham cracker malt character with some nice blueberry action. the honey must play with the blueberries and make them more pronounced. has a slight fruity pebble taste.

Mouthfeel- light bodied. alil over carbonation if you ask me. crispy

Drinkability- easily gonna crush the six pack.

Overall- this is a great summer brew or something fruity that's not overkill. for the style it's really solid. take this over all the fruit beers I can think of on the top of my head like dark horse raspberry or founder's rubeus or any ipa with grapefruit or any other fruit in it. great example of a fruit beer and prolly a great starter for getting someone into craft beer.

Bottled 8/18/17. Poured into Belgian ale glass.

L: 2F head with good retention. Leaves a thin cap and ring. Beer is a pretty clear amber.

S: Blueberries and honey, along with cracker and maybe caramel malts.

T: Blueberries, slightly tart, but neutralized by the honey and malts. Pretty neutral finish.

F: Light to slightly medium body. Mediumish carbonation. Good construction and balance. Nice and refreshing.

O: Apparently I like this more than most others. I think they did a nice job on it.

Nice pour into a cold mug. Amber color with a little hint of purple. Thin, airy head. Slight malt flavor backed by blueberries with subtle honey notes. Little low on carbonation. Overall a very drinkable beer

Appearance - Pours clear golden color with nice white head.

Aroma - Just a huge amount of fresh blueberry, nice touch of sweetness as well. There is not much else going on but it is what it says.

Taste - The taste is blueberry as well like you just rubbed the blueberry all over your mouth. There is a touch of honey for sweetness and the blueberry provides some tartness. There is a little biscuit there as well.

Feel - Pretty light bodied well carbonated easy drinking and refreshing.

Overall - It hits the mark for a blueberry ale, great flavors smells wonderful.

Light orange tinged brew with a light tan head. Sweet blueberry scent dripping off the nose of this brew. Maybe some malt in the back somewhere. Now for the flavor: more complex than I would have thought, there is honey some berry shows up and then with a blended malt/honey Ending. Not as sweet and not as berry as I would have guessed but after saying all that, sort of ok. Also watery and I think it could benefit from a bit more carbonation.

12oz bottle poured into glass.
Look: light amber, thin white head.
Smell: an over load of blue berries.
Taste: mostly blue berry, with a hint of honey. Almost too much blue berry.
Feel: easy to drink.
Overall: This beer would be better with less blue berry, it tastes too artifical.

Surprisingly not over flavored. If I'm being picky, it's a little light, but not enough to be a major problem. I got it in a draft with blueberries in it, I'm not sure if that's normal. They didn't seem to help or hurt the beer, overall. This is good and well balanced. I've been critical of FH in the past, but this is good.

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.

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!

Pours clear, gold in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is blueberries, cereal and toasted malt. Light bodied, medium carbonation and sweet. Makes for a fairly standard blueberry ale. Tasty and sessionable, but also a beer I feel I have had several times from several breweries.
