2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thankfully this was bought for me to try. Clear gold, thin white cap. Well, there’s the blueberry... no shortage of it in the aroma. In fact, there is too much but then again if it was too faint I’d still complain. Seems a bit syrupy, good wheat, too much sweet fruit and not much else. Thick wheat and blueberry taste that comes across a bit syrupy but I guess that cannot be helped. It’s not that bad tasting and it is also not overly sweet. Mediumish bodied, finishes with a good, short lived tang and a faint but long wheat and sweet finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear gold with some violet hues capped off with a tall slightly purple crown. Very mild malt aroma and surprisingly a very mild blueberry, I was expecting a punch to the face of sweet fake syrup but it never showed up. Taste like a watered down wheat beer with hints of sweet blueberry what is a good thing. I’m getting mild reminders of ego’s but not too much. Beer is crisp and clean what makes this one of the few fruit beers you can drink in mass quantities. Good job Alley Kat this isn’t my style but you did very well.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. A generic pub ale with blueberry flavour. Amber with a faint lasting head. Moderate warm blueberry skin scent. Reminds me of a blueberry version of thier Aprikat. You can taste the grain and separate the grain from the fruit flavours. A bit of residual sweetness in the aftertaste. I guess patio season is here but I will stick to wheat beers.
