Very common golden ale malt profile, you can pick a bit of the honey notes much more than you can pick up the blueberry notes, but there is a faint fruit flavor. Not offensive but not great.

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.
