Saranac Blueberry Blonde AleSaranac Blueberry Blonde Ale
Notes: Saranac Blueberry Blonde Ale is a traditional blonde ale with a kick of juicy blueberry. You'll notice a light golden haze from wheat malt and oats and a low hop bitterness, which really shows off the fruit. With a medium-light body and fresh blueberry flavor, we're sure we've captured refreshment in a bottle!

A: Poured from the can into a weizen glass. Body is hazy golden-honey in color with a 1.5-finger fluffy white head. Some lacing on the glass.

S: Like Jiffy blueberry muffin mix - the cheap muffin mix with the artificial blueberries. Also reminds me of candy of some sort.

T: Less offensive than I expected given the nose. Up front, the blueberry isn't strong. It does linger on the aftertaste, however, as the taste of fake blueberry muffins comes back. Decent wheat twang makes this modestly refreshing (I'm having it on a warm day after mowing the lawn), though that lingering artificial blueberry taste is a turnoff for me.

M: Lightish in heft, carbonation is modest.

O: To be honest, I usually stay away from these kinds of beers, but the guys at Westmere Beverage recommended this one as a decent, refreshing beer - so I bought a single can. I really don't know how it compares to other blueberry beers, so I'm calling it average. Like I said, the blueberry could be more in-your-face than it is; I consider it a good thing that it isn't.
