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.

The beer comes in a dark red amber with hints of purple from the blueberries.

The aroma offers blueberry jam, pie, candy, a huge artificial sugary sweetness, bready malt.

However, on the flavor, lots of grain, artificial blueberry flavors, blueberry syrup, a stiff lingering earthy bitterness, skunky malts. Overcarbonation. The beer is generally bland with lack of balance.
