3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at HopCat in Madison, WI., served to a tulip showing a purple highlighted, blackish brown color, with a presentable layer of tan head foam, and sheet-like cling to the lacing. The aroma was blueberry and malt, as a blueberry pastry, with hints of roastiness & cocoa on subsequent review of the nose. Better than medium body, with decent carbonation, the taste presented a bit of sweetness & tartness, some earthy astringency, and even better than the pastry description, was reminiscent of Boo-berry cereal. Surprisingly boozy & bitter for a Fruit Beer. Although a blueberry fan, it didnít seem to fit the desire at the time for a refreshing, fruity, sessionable beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I liked this one a lot more than I expected to. +++ Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a very dark brown color with a medium sized foamy beige head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet blueberry muffin. The flavor was blueberry muffin, sweet and yeasty with toasty malts and vanilla. As it warmed notes of chocolate and raisin came out. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Alcohol well controlled. Well done.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle (from Total Wine- Sleazy Park, TX) served in a shaker- poured an almost transparent black when held to a light source- shades of maroon and purple were spotted, razor thin ring off tan in color formed upon the vessel with nominal lacing. Aroma of blueberries (seems VERY artificial- bad Michiganders, BAD BAD BAD), sugar, and bread. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is awash in blueberries (yep, itís artificial), blueberries in the middle, blueberries on the finish- with a spot of bread like feel on the tongue. Iím disappointed in you Atwater- you might as well make a beer with tofu and kumquats like these TexUGHtuckies do down here- or so it seems...

On draft at World of Beer in Arlington. Pours a clear cola with a tan head. Blueberry aroma. Flavors of blueberry and chocolate. Does not do it for me.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle, thanks to a MI friend. Notch date is on July í15. Blueberry in the nose, some chocolate, then caramel. Some raisins and dates in the flavor. Mostly clear red brown color. Ring of off-white/light grey head. Some bits of lace. Fades to minimal. Greg says he gets a bit of a citrus, flintstone vitamin character to this. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, kind of sugary. Very mild bitter, a bit medicinal. Moderate to bigger body. Holy crap, this is 8%? Well, actually the bottle says 6.9%. Thatís reasonable. Pretty sweet, really it could have passed for 8%. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, light bit of bitter. Kind of slick texture. Alright blueberry ale, I guess. Like a blueberry muffin, kind of, but that flavor if forced in a blunt way. I was nervous to do this 12oz on my own. I glad I shared it: 4oz was plenty.

Black brew with small tan head. Smells like a porter with a hint of berry. Taste is dark malts, slight smoke, and blueberry. Not much in the way of cobbler flavor but still a pretty good brew. Too expensive to purchase again but was worth giving it a try.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black. Very small head. Aroma is like a bready stout. Flavor is bitter, coffee and chocolate. The blueberry comes in a little on the finish. For something called a blueberry cobber ale, itís way off. It should be called a coffee chocolate, blueberry stout. Lower the disappointment level.

엣워터 블록 브루잉 - 블루베리 코블러 에일 8% ABV 상당히 독특한 맥주. 블루베리 풍미의 다크하고 크리미한 커피 맥주. 두개의 강한 케릭터를 조화롭게 녹여내는데 성공했다.
얼핏 글로만 읽으면 매우 비호감이지만 실제로 신선한 블루베리와 강하게 브루 된 커피가 고급스런 기분이며 좋은 아이디어의 실험 맥주다. 정보가 거의 없는 것으로 보아 한시적으로 소규모로 생산되다 중단된 모양.
영화와 마찬가지로 나는 맥주관한 스포일러 또한 극단적으로 경계하는 편인데, 이런 습관 덕택에 가끔씩 독특한 맥주들을 더욱 신나게 마실수 있는 기회가 가끔있고, 바로 이 맥주가 그런 것 중 하나였다.
