BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Coastal Extreme Brewing Co.
Rhode Island, United States
newportstorm.com

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Rhode Island Blueberry Beer is a crisp, refreshing Kolsch style ale made with fresh blueberries from local Rhode Island Farm, Schartner Farms in Exeter, RI! The prominent blueberry aroma that first meets the nose translates into a perfect balance of blueberry and beer flavor that pleases but doesn’t overpower the taste buds. The addition of fresh blueberry juice, over other types of flavoring, keeps our second year-round beer light and not-too-sweet-but-just-right!

This is a light and floral fruit beer, as compared to the typical heavy and syrupy flavor- they use local blueberrys & blueberry juice from exeter RI instead of the typical artificial extracts and flavors in most fruit beers, so i think that's what really sets it apart.

I won this bottle in a contest that I was trying to lose. Kinda sets the mood, right? Plus this guy that bestowed it on me can't really be trusted ...I'd tell you why but that'd probably be slander or some shit.

ANYwho, it actually looks pretty decent in the hf stem ...no credit to the glassware, right? Copper, amber, orangy-red, and reddish orange. Maybe a little gold in there but definitely a slight blueish hue going on here. Maybe purplish, but I would say more on the blue side. The head is about half a finger tall and white. I find the colour of the beer has much more depth than the head. 3.64/5

Smells like caramel candy and blueberry hubba bubba.

Tastes decent, some of that caramel that was in the nose, not overly sweet though. Blueberry is there, in a preserve kind of way. Not terrible!

Feel is fine. Almost creamy carbonation.

Well, I thought I was in for it, but this wasn't all that bad. I could see people that "don't usually like beer" liking it.

Thanks buddy, it was actually a fun one that I never would have tried.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter glass. Abv not stated on bottle but listed on page as 4.6%

Appearance- Pours a light amber with a fluffy two finger head. Hazy

Smell- Blueberry quite prominent. Lightly toasted crackery aroma too.

Taste- Grainy/biscuity malt with a fresh blueberry favor instantly coming after. The berries lend a complimentary sweetness to the dry, earthy grain. The blueberry intensity subsides enough not to be overwhelming, going into the finish. This beer finishes dry with a slight hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Medium-thin in body with lively carbonation.

Overall- One very good fruit beer. Evident in the smell of the freshness of ingredients. The Malt/fruit flavors blend well making a well balanced beer.

Had from the bottle into a snifter, the label looks a different than what is on the pic here, probably a small change. Pours a clear copper color with a small head that doesn't leave much lacing. First sniff is a big punch of blueberry juice, some malt sweetness in the back. Taste is similar at first, but after a few sips the blueberry gets muted on the tongue, what remains is a bitter and sweet malt combo with a little blueberry in the back, a touch grainy. Heavier in the stomach than what the ABV would lead you to believe. Overall a decent attempt but I would not have this again.

This a light, refreshing beer. It's crisp and fruity, but it isn't too sweet. It's not particularly memorable, but it's good! It toes the line between "fruit beer" and "carbonated fruity drink you consume by the pool," but there is enough "beer" flavor there to not write it off as a Mike's Hard Lemonade type drink.
