Aroma of blueberry and catnip. I’m kidding -- I don’t really smell the catnip. But it’s sort of cool that it’s in there. When we were kids, we used to figure you could get high off of catnip, so we got our parents to let us grow it in the garden "for the cat" and we’d mash it up and eat it and then damned if we didn’t feel high though of course, in retrospect, this was pure placebo effect. But I digress. Aroma of blueberry waffles and just a notch of APA hops. Well hopped making it drinkable and worth ordering by the pint instead of simply tasting in a sampler flight. No question that this is the best blueberry ale I’ve ever had, save for Blabeer.Well, and Ithaca Excelsior! Le Bleu. But yeah, blueberries early on the flavor, grading into herbal hops (and catnip, I suppose). Quaffable mouthfeel. Nice beer.

What a horrible combination of everything, the blueberry is too sweet, the nitro doesn't work with it, it tastes like sweet vomit. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

blueberries, caramel notes, somewhat herbal. Couldnt tell you what a fucking catnip smells like. Amber pour, thin offwhite head. Flavors of blueberries, caramel, some herbal notes, a little spicy perhaps. Interesting beer. For the bitches.

Draft at sb. Pours a clear medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head that lasta forever. Big nose of blueberries; there’s mintiness in the background. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, blueberries, and mint on the mid palate. Long fruity finish. Pretty good--much better than the mere curiosity the catnip in the hop bill might have sugvested.

Dark amber in color with lots of aroma with blueberries and hops. You do get earthy flavor and aroma this was a fun beer to try.
