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.

Phenomenal summer beer. Even better with blueberries in your glass.

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.

The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some ringy lacing. The smell had a pure blueberry with some sweet crackery malt and light honey. The taste was mainly sweet through a combination of the blueberries, honey and crackery malt. Light sweet blueberry accompanies the aftertaste and lingers sweetly into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation felt nicely surrounding the mouthfeel and left a decent creamy sweet fulfilling quality. Overall, I say this was a pretty good fruit beer.

A ton of sweet blueberry aroma.
Tastes the same w some light bready malt.
Smooth, clean, & refreshing.
Well done.
Not my favorite from Fat Heads but definitely a quality light beer!

One of the most aromatic beers I have ever had. Tastes differently from the bottle or on tap. Very sweet and tasty if you drop some fresh blueberries in.

This is my wife's favorite beer. If you see it available definitely try it out!
