What do you get when you combine a passionate Isehara beer-retailing liquor store, fresh Kanagawa prefecture blueberries, and a devoted fruit beer craft brewery? Of course, you get a great idea for an interesting beer. Autumn Harvest Blueberry Ale is the final product of that idea. Brewed exclusively with European base malts and Japanese sugar, lightly hopped with English Fuggles, and dosed with loads of hand-crushed Kanagawa blueberries, Autumn Harvest Blueberry Ale is piquant and effervescent -- a fruited beer champagne, if you will.

Cloudy amber color. Mildly sweet, tart, blueberry nose. Well balanced, but I think because they used real blueberries instead of artificial flavoring, the fruit flavors through out the beer are fairly subdued. Full malty backbone and lingering blueberries in the finish. I think it hits what it is trying to be, but unfortunately it is still a bit underwhelming as a beer.
