32 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Dark brown with a purple tinge. Purple hue to the head, too. Nice.

Smell - Wow, blueberries. Sweet malts. Legitimately has a pancake batter aroma. Hint of acidity.

Taste - Sweet caramel. Spritzy soda-like flavor at the start. Blueberry is masked at the beginning, but comes back with a slightly acidic twang. Pancake grain flavor in the back. Maple sweetness? I might be making that up.

Mouthfeel - Sweet and a little acidic at the same time. Medium body. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - This is excellent. I'm about to pour some bourbon barrel maple syrup into it. This should be even better.

On tap at Beer City, North Babylon NY

A - Dark color with a very distinguishable purple hue. Carbonation on this is minimal once in the growler; the pour from the tap was foam for a good 30 seconds. No lacing of note and the foam retention is minimal.

S - Clearly the best part of this beer. Strong notes of sweet blueberry dominate the nose. And I'll be darned if there isn't a scent of pancake batter. The yeast gives off a bit of diacetyl, but this is really an impressive smelling beer. Blueberry beers should take note.

T - Very sweet right from the initial sip. The lingering notes of light grains give this beer a bit of a fresh bread flavor (thus the pancake batter). Finish unfortunately has a slight cough syrup aftertaste. Overall this is a fun tasting beer.

M - Gotta tone down the drinkability for the sweetness and medicine aftertaste. It is light drinking and with virtually no carbonation. Probably a joy for wine cooler crowds.

O - I'd get this again. Might be the best blueberry beer out there. Good to try as a benchmark, and to come back to for a sugar rush.

16 ounce growler picked up the other day. enjoyed from my Kuhnhenn snifter. getting the poor at the bottle shop was ridiculous, there is so much fermented sugars in this beer that it pours all foam and took ages to fill the small growler. beer pours a brown and settles in the glass as purple or black. smell is perfectly blueberry pancakes. it really is amazing. a tad medicinal in the way that the eisbocks are medicinal. taste is really interesting. again kind of like blueberry pancake batter, but with some kind of roast and medicinal qualities like the eisbocks. the beer lost a lot of its luster overnight in the growler and the carbonation was rather soft. a really interesting beer and interesting to try but not something that I would actively seek out.

A - Dark reddish brown color with no head as its slightly flat from the growler

S - Exactly like blueberry pancake batter

T - Sweet blueberry pancakes with sweet blueberry up front. Light batter and sugar near the end. Sugary sweet aspect that lingers in the finish

M - Light body with light stickiness to it. Sugary sweetness lingers on the backend

O - Tastes just as advertised as its just like blueberry pancakes with a bit of sweetness
