Fat Head's Brewery & Saloon "Bumble Berry Honey Blueberry Ale"
on tap @ Falanigan's Boathouse, Conshohocken, PA on 26 February 2016

Appearance: Golden amber in color beneath a frothy head of white. Better than average head retention, moderate lacing.

Aroma: Blueberry over a grainy malt base.

Flavor: Sweet blueberry. Grainy, wheat-like malt. Sweetish but I don't particularly get the honey as "honey". It remains balanced. Finishes drying with some residual fruitiness. No real hops to speak of, as it should be.

Mouthfeel: Medium and crisp.

Overall: One of the better blueberry ales I've had. Nicely done.

I loved the sweetness of this beer. As soon as you open it, the scent of blueberries hits you and the taste follows through. This beer isn't too heavy but probably not for someone counting calories. Overall, I would recommend this for anyone looking for a sweet refreshment.

Stark white frothy head, maybe about a finger tall. Crystal clear with just a bit of yeast floating about near the bottom.

Smells super berry time straight away, like Boo Berry cereal with just a hint of cracker type malt.

Taste is immediately tart like the way fresh berries would be. Behind tart berry time is just a touch of metallic something.

Dry finish has virtually nothing for the tongue to hang in to. Surprising, given how dominant the fruitiness is.

Not horrible, probably one of the better fruit beers I've had but unless you just really love fruit beers, this one can probably get left on the shelf.
