3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle from Pinocchio’s Beer Garden To Go in Media, PA served in a stem glass. Pours clear purple-amber with a moderate purplish head that remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has huge notes of blueberry, slightly tart apple and cider, along with yeast, oak and pale malts and a touch of flowers. The flavour is moderately tart with cidery notes and prominent blueberries. Oak comes through, along with wheat and hints of coriander and spice. The finish is long and mildly tart with blueberry skins. On the palate it is medium in body with a dry texture and a hint of astringency. Overall this is a very nice sour blueberry wheat ale. 2014-05-02
