Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.40%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

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

Pours with very little head, smells like fresh blueberry cobbler (including the aroma of a crust/crumble), tastes like a wonderful desert 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.
