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!

Date Rated: May 4, 2013... Glassware: nondescript pint... Occasion: slowing down after a long week... Appearance: slightly hazy pale blond ale with tremendous effervescence; thick and thin bubbles stream skyward to a thick white head--great lacing... Aroma: fragrant, candied blueberry scent; appropriate to the bottle's label... Palate: rather smooth start with little bite; rather diminished and rinselike in the finish... Taste: somewhat malty, with soft hops that do not balance well; odd fruity esters ensue with a mostly plain American pilsner profile... Overall: as novelties go, the fruit beers refresh and remind me of the German/Bavarian traditions with authentic additives--this beer seems to follow that tradition distantly, without the prerequisite fruit or lightness....
