Blueberry CobblerBlueberry Cobbler
Notes: This ain't your grandma's fizzy blueberry lager. Blueberry Cobbler is a copiously blueberried glass of goodness with real cinnamon and vanilla added. It's purple, not because we add coloring, but because we use natural blueberries. So go ahead and sneak a slice. We won't tell.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

This beer pours pale red but fills to a dark, cloudy red-violet with a large, lumpy foam that's white with a barely pink hue, settling in mounds.

Smell is graham and half-baked cinnamon oats with touches of blueberry and vanilla-spiked french toast.

This beer comes off as well-carbonated and tangy with a surprisingly full, round and soft body and a semi-wet finish, where blueberry takes the fore, but makes room for those grahamy-wheat and cinnamony-oat scone/cobbler attributes that it successfully nails. A little vanilla cola runs along the background making this overall quite sweet, but not overpoweringly so, where the freshly made blueberry filling builds to a nice plateau.

Thankfully it does not contain any medicinal or tart attributes like I expected. Another surprise was how good of a choice it was to execute a wheat beer of this quality for adding blueberries to--this beer and treatment play well together.

Bottle poured into a pint glass

Two finger pink hued frothy foam cap settles to a solid layer over a reddish brown liquid with a steady stream of carbonation

Aroma of wheat, cinnamon, spices,

Taste is wheaty cinnamon

Low sudsing

Can't seem to find the blueberry but definitely found the cinnamon. reminds of a summer wheat ale version of winter warmers

Nice beer

Another beer from my coworker and was stoked to get it. A two finger tan head that creamy with some retention, not much thought. The color of the beer is amber with some copper hues. The clarity of the beer is mostly opaque/haziness. A few carbonation bubbles poke their head out of the haziness.
A fruity note (not able to decipher if it is blueberry), toasty bready note, caramel, grainy, citrus, brown sugar, and touch vanilla.
A good toasted bready malt, fruity notes, caramel, grainy, citrus, brown sugar, touch of vanilla, and come cracker.
Medium body, medium carbonation, and medium finish.
All the Funky Buddha beer I have tried, this is the one that I least cared for. How can you go from a Maple Bacon porter rich full flavor to this dud? I could not pull blueberry notes, just fruit and when I think of cobbler I envision a sugary, oatmeal, and cake goodness wrapped around a rich blueberry compote. I did not get anything that resemble that.

Pours a hazy coppery color with plenty of off-white head. Blueberries, cinnamon, vanilla, sweetness, and some biscuit notes, just like a cobbler; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes like a nice sweet piece of blueberry cobbler.

The look is nice with a red/purplish tint. Smell was lacking, having grown up in the south and understanding what Blueberry cobbler taste and smells like this one missed the mark by a mile on smell. Taste is where this failed horribly, Blueberry cobbler is sweet first, Blueberry should be overpowering, with a hint of spice, almost no vanilla note and finished with a light buttery taste. It should not be overpoweringly tart. Mine tasted burnt at first then became very tart and had a light hint of allspice with no vanilla or blueberry taste at all. It was a once only try beer.

Hazy, dark amber color, white head drops to a ring quickly.
Smell is cinnamon, graham cracker, faint fruit, malt. Mouth is watering.
Taste is a great balance of cinnamon, graham cracker, light blueberry, malt.
Needs a bit of body and a bit more blueberry presence and I would give this brew 5 across the board. Amazing.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours an interesting light orange, nearly amber hue with a hint of violet. Small ring of head, moderate lacing. Smell is primarily sweet maltiness, with hints of pie crust, blueberry and brown sugar. Nice nutmeg and Christmas-like aromas. Taste is more on the malty side than anything. Hints of tartness with cinnamon. Not much blueberry, or as dessert-like as the aroma. Mouthfeel is relatively thin, nothing palate coating and an overall easy drinker.

A fail on many levels. The individual parts were ok - interesting blueberry flavor, even a creamy dairy mouthfeel, but when added up all together, it missed the mark. Worth trying one-off, but not worth a repeat.

L: pours a nice purple-amber color. hazy, which i did not expect. little to no carb.
S: tart blueberry.
T: not sour at all, really. malty, bready, and blueberry in the finish.
F: smooth, crisp. carb is present here.
O: certainly not my favorite FB beer, but there's some redeeming qualities here. I would never seek this out, but if you see it in stores, it's worth a try.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a Duvel tulip. No freshness date.

A- Pours a hazy blueish/purplish color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains decently before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a small center patch of bubbly surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves small clots behind.

S- Blueberry and vanilla and yes, they actually nailed the pie crust aroma as well.

T- Mainly vanilla in the flavor with some blueberry in the middle and mild cinnamon trailing. Very easy to drink. Sweet, but not cloying.

M- Slightly creamy with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Probably about as close as you can expect to get to a beer tasting like blueberry cobbler, especially in the smell. Would order if I saw it on draft somewhere but I wouldn't seek it out.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Scant head sticks around on top of a reddish-orange body.

Tons of vanilla and cinnamon. The namesake blueberry is there but not as powerful as the other adjuncts. Slight medicinal quality or something that doesn't fully jive for me here.

Active carbonation. Body is on the lighter side.

I do not like blueberry flavored anything. However, this was pretty good. Hints of vanilla are great and the blueberry wasn't overpowering. Not a beer I'd buy regularly, but certainly on the high end of very fruit forward beers for me.

4.1/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance - The lager was a dark gold color with white bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass.

Smell - The tartness of blueberry reall cones though before the sweetness of vanilla makes an impression.

Taste - The taste begins with the modest pucker of blueberry. The vanilla fills-in the remainder of the taste like a creme soda. I believe it is meant to give the impression of melted vanilla ice cream on the cobbler. By the aftertaste, all sense of blueberry is gone.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation is appropriate leaving a trail of visible beer bubbles.

Overall - Not many are too keen on this beer. I think I like it because it reminds me of creme soda.

Light brown in color with a fingernail of off white around the rim and about a third of the top. I get plenty of cinnamon and vanilla in the nose, but blueberry? Not so much. I definitely taste an aggressive blend of cinnamon, blueberries, and vanilla. This one is definitely on the sweet side of the spectrum. The mouth is moderately carbonated and the tartness of the blueberries contrasts with all of that sugary sweetness of the cinnamon and vanilla.

Smell is all vanilla ice cream. Taste is tart blueberry, cream, cinnamon, and some earthy malt. Very short finish. Not bad, was expecting a bit more though.

Poured from a bottle into a stemmed flute, the beer is a hazy, opaque, blue-tinged golden coloring with a foamy, bubbly, low profile, off-white head. Aromas of tart blueberry and vanilla ice cream forward, very sweet and balanced, with subtle notes of cinnamon and toasted grains. Flavors are very tart and sweet blueberry forward, like a spoonful of blueberry jam, with a solid vanilla follow, subtle cinnamon highlights, and a toasted grain backbone. Very rich and sweet throughout, on a smooth, light, crisp body. The aftertaste is fruit and sugary sweet, heavy on the blueberry, and slightly cloying. Slow, smooth finish, with a solid sugary sweet linger. This is really tasty, but with the robust and rich flavors I wouldn't be able to drink more than one. That one is definitely worth it, though. It's like dessert.

Wheat ale with blueberries, cinnamon, and vanilla added.

Pours a very slightly purple tinged orange with one finger thick fluffy cream colored head, rings of chunky lace halfway down the glass. Smell: cooked blueberries, heavy blast of vanilla, caramel. Taste: quick hit of caramel, cinnamon graham cracker, building fruit skin tartness.. sure, blueberries, odd astringent component in the finish. Light-plus bodied, almost creamy carbonation but the body thins out far too soon. Finish is sticky and slightly tart. It delivers what it promises, but I'm fine with having had just one.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a CCB pint glass.

A: Pours a mildly hazy golden amber, with low visible carbonation and a thin head that has definite blueberry color to it as it both forms and fades quickly.

S: Blueberry pie filling, grainy doughy biscuit malts, and some husky character that makes me think there is wheat in the malt bill. Mild tartness to the aroma. Aside from the tartness, the aroma is reminiscent of a blueberry wheat from the late 90s. Nothing offensive here, but it’s not getting me excited.

T: Blueberries and cinnamon-sugar mix, biscuit malts, and cobbler crust. Mildly husky wheat here again, vanilla, and some more cinnamon later and through the swallow that lasts with mildly tart blueberries in the hang. As the beer warms a bit out of the fridge, the blueberry and cinnamon get a bit more prominent and a bit more sweet, which help the flavors mesh more.

M: The mouthfeel is fairly light, with carbonation on the low side. The ABV is very well-hidden.

O: I didn’t think this was a bad beer, though maybe gimmicky. Perhaps something to give to your friends who are learning about craft beer and the flavors it can offer. In the vein of CCB’s Oatmeal Raisin or The Bruery's Or Xata – it is what it claims, I just don't think it works out to be a great beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with a purplish hue. Aroma is filled with cinnamon spice. They hit the blueberry cobbler taste. Sweet n sugary with cinnamon spice, a little nutmeg and tart blueberries. Mouthfeel is a little flat n thin. Overall a little too sweet and spicy for me to drink regularly or more than one. But interesting, glad i got to try it.

Poured from a 12oz glass into a Speiglau Wheat beer glass.

Look is amber and hazy with a slightly blue color? that might just be because of the name. No head.

Aroma is heavy cinnamon sugar with slight vanilla.

Taste is vanilla and cinnamon, there is a tartness to the beer but not a strong blueberry flavor.

Interesting to try but I can't see myself ordering multiple ones of these.

a wheat beer with blueberries, vanilla, and cinnamon. its awesome, tastes exactly like blueberry cobbler, not cloying at all, not artificial, i really dug it. its pale purple in color, see through still, with some sediment swirling aound and not much head. the color is unique, but it doesnt look all that impressive. vanilla and blueberry are prominent in the nose, really vibrant and fresh baked. the wheat is like the crumb topping on top, hints of brown sugar and buttery crust, its all there. it reminds me of some of those flavor beers that shorts puts out, really odd but really genuine in their flavors. the blueberry and vanilla are in equal portions in the flavor, sweet but not out of proportion, and the cinnamon is more of an accent flavor in the finish. it truly does taste like the dessert, but its not so weird i wouldnt drink a whole bunch of them usually these things are novelties, but not here, i would drink it all fall, really takes me someplace. i wish we could get more of their beer out here, everything ive had from them has been insanely good.

This beer has me torn. I enjoyed the flavor. I get notes of cinnamon and nutmeg along with the blueberry much like you would see in a cobbler. My issue was the nose. It smelled a lot like cough syrup to me and I couldn't get over the unpleasant smell enough to truly enjoy the beer.

Definitely blueberry cobbler. Just not my thing. A very odd aroma, I didn't get blueberries, but something else fruity. Definitely sweet cream aromas in there though. Taste is a tart blueberry with a slight malty sweetness to give that pie flavor.

Poured into a Cuvee glass out of a 12 oz. bottle. Bottled 01/22/15
Beautiful purple tinted to red body, thin amount of head. Real blueberries used to brew this beer.
First smell is of vanilla! Tons of vanilla, hint of cinnamon and then blueberries. Smells like a sweet blueberry cobbler to be sure!
Taste...WOW! It's just like eating a blueberry cobbler with melted vanilla ice cream. Sweet, vanila-y (is that a word), delicious.
Mouthfeel is light and sweet.
Overall, a delicious dessert beer. It comes through on it's promise of tasting like Blueberry Cobbler, because that is exactly what it is. A little sweet, but c'mon what are you expecting when you buy a beer like this?
