3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 07/2014. Pours crystal clear nearly opaque dark brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of fresh blueberries, pie crust, toast, chocolate, light caramel, and light herbal hops. Very nice aromas with good balance of blueberries and dark/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of fresh blueberries, pie crust, toast, chocolate, light caramel, and herbal earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness and slight tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of blueberries, pie crust, toast, chocolate, light caramel, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of blueberries and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a solid malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Would have liked less bitterness to let the blueberries and malt sweetness have better presence. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good fruit beer. Good balance and robustness of blueberries and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

The first time I tried this, I had a Belgian tripel beforehand to dull the palate. This one tasted great as a follow-up. The next time I had one while completely sober, and it wasn’t nearly as good. Lesson learned: it’s a great middle-of-the-night beer, not a leadoff hitter.

Tap at Atwater in the Park. Dark brown. Some nice foam. Super blueberry nose. Very sweet, syrupy almost. Definitely tastes like blueberries. Novelty beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a surprising dark brown with aroma of blueberry and blueberry flavor with some caramel flavor and a burnt back end. Started out strong, but didn’t finish quite that way.

From a bottle. Gross. Starts promising, but whoa. That finish is terrible. The spices are bitter and nasty.

1.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Pour appears to be dark brownish, but it the proper light one can see it is actually a deep blue. Head is frothy and thick. Aroma is of cooked blueberries. That is where the fun ends. This tastes like burnt bakery. It leaves a bad, carbon, burnt crust taste in the mouth that doesn’t go away for about an hour. The concept is nice, and it sounded good, and it looked lovely. But this isn’t good at all!
