COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our newest addition to our family of craft beers. A light golden ale, crisp on the palate with a refreshing blueberry aroma and flavor. Surprisingly different that most people expect. A sure winner!

This beer is so good. Put a couple western new york blueberries in it and have a frosty mug near by and your in for a good night. You might end up loving your grwoler like you love your babies momma.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz. bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: It forms a thin white head that quickly fades leaving just a few small bubbles on top. The body has a light golden color with very good clarity. (Apparently this is a filtered wheat beer.) Smell: The aroma has a big blueberry nose up front with mild leafy hops and then some light wheat notes in the background. Taste/Mouth feel: The blueberry, which is up front in the aroma, is more mellow or complementary in the flavor. The sweet/tart blueberry flavor is balanced well with spicy, almost peppery hop flavor and some tangy wheat flavor notes as well. Its body has a very drinkable light to medium body with a nice active carbonation and a slow finishing tart to bitter fading aftertaste. Notes: I really enjoyed balance on this beer. I loved that the blueberry that was big and bold in the aroma but didnít overpower the flavor of the beer or get lost altogether. Well done!!!

UPDATED: APR 1, 2010 This was an outstanding beer!!! I loved it!! It is like a blueberry muffin in a glass. I am reminded of the box of muffin mix as a kid. It smells just like the can of berries that came in the box! I very easy drinking brew that is exceptional. The only thing I would warn against is that you may become tired of this one quickly, so pace yourself. This one is too good to overdo.

Immediately smell the blueberry as soon as pored, taste is quite nice with the blueberry coming at the end, not much head, no lacing on glass, golden light copper color. not a bad brew

Bottle........exchange with Chucks66. Pours a dark amber hue, with a sweet aroma of blueberry muffins. Very thin taste, slightly sweet with a watered down taste of blueberries.

On Tap at Popís Sports Bar and Grill in Springville, NY. Normally I avoid the lighter colored beers, but this one looked interesting when a friend of mine ordered it a couple months ago. This was also the first Ellicottville Brewing Company beer that I tried. I was pleasantly suprised. The blueberry smell and flavor is definitely present but not overwhelming. The hops kick in at the finish to provide a nice balance. Definitely one I will have to come back to.

This poured a cloudy straw yellow with a slight blue tint and a white head. Aroma was wheat and yeast, medium freshly slightly sour bluberries, and light spices too. flavor was very nice balance of wheat and pale malt with the blueberries. Blueberries come off fresh and real, not artificial in any way. Nice.

It is rare to find a wheat beer this good. The aroma is the only really sweet part of this beer. The blueberry flavor is present, but not overpowering of fruity. It's so well balanced. Nice job!
