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.

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.
