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!

Golden orange color. Very little head. Just a ring, at this point. Some haze. 3.0

Very sweet blueberry flesh aroma with a graham cracker like malt. Candy sweet with no detectable hops and not much of anything else. Smells like muddled blueberries in a past-its-expiration pale ale. 3.0

Surprisingly tastes like beer. A much smaller dose of blueberry in the flavor, but now it's a little bit on the artificial side. That berry fruit reminds me a bit of Cotton Candy flavored bubble gum. Some very mild tartness lingers in the finish. Some toast and burnt sugars in the malt. Not too bad for a blonde ale. 3.5

Medium carbonation, leaning on the spritzy side. Body feels a little sticky and wide. Still a simple task to knock back. 3.5

If we're saying 3.0 marks an average American Blonde, then this is barely on the above-average side. The taste sets it apart. Don't get put off by the wacky sweet fruit aromatics that could turn you off. This is still a fruit ale, and worth finishing. 3.5
