BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Atlantic Brewing Company / Mainely Meat BBQ
Maine, United States
atlanticbrewing.com

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A light fruit ale, made with Maine wild blueberries. As opposed to many of the sweeter fruit beers on the market, our addition of fresh Maine wild blueberries in this light ale yields a subtle blueberry aroma, without the sweet aftertaste. A mixture of the following Mutton malts, pale, crystal, and Munich, are combined with wheat to give this ale its lighter body, and we only use minimal amounts of Target and Willamette hops.

Rather tasteless. Scant blueberry flavor.

Experienced this blueberry ale in a few restaurants in Bar Harbor over several years. Appearance, taste, and feel quite consistent over time. They seem to have achieved a interesting/balanced selection among the hops, malts and blueberries with minimal sweetness/aftertaste. Would recommend trying this.

Smooth light hint of blueberries, not overwhelming. Very enjoyable beer.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a can style glass.

Look is a amber with a slight blue twinge and little to no head.

Aroma is malt and a slight blueberry sweetness.

Taste matches aroma.

Not my favorite style of beer, but a decent version of it.
