COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Blueberry Ale is the perfect blend of organic local blueberries and a snappy, refreshing wheat beer. With a malt bill of almost 50% Canadian Wheat, 50% Canadian barley, and a touch of crystal malt, it’s bursting with crisp, clean malt flavours. We add real blueberry puree during fermentation which adds a subtle fruitiness and a slightly purple cast. This unfiltered brew delivers refreshing flavours without the tiresome sweetness found in most fruit beers.

Tessic (906) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2014
This ale poured a cloudy, medium yellow colour with a bright white head. Scents include blueberry jam, dough and urine? First swig was smooth with medium carbonation. Flavours of light blueberry and mild hop most prodominant. Finish is lightly hoppy with a little bitterness lingering.

Metalchopz (2405) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
Part of the Gahan Fathers Commemorative 4-Pack at the LCBO. Pours a cloudy golden-amber colour with a white creamy head that has pink hue. Sweet nose with sugars and blueberry notes. The taste is mildly blueberries with some decent hops that give it a soapy feel. Not the best mouthfeel, but a decent blueberry witbier.

Where and how: bottle 500 ml
Aroma some wheat like hints with mild fruity (berry) accents. Pleasant sweetrt behind. Fairly natural.
Appearance :
Top: lighter, fizzy white top.
Base: hazy, amber-gold.
Palate : thinner body, soft.
Taste: soft wheat bottom with some tartness. Mild hint of berry skins .
Other notes less wheat character would benefit this ale.

500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange-copper with an average, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of blueberries with a mild wheat note. Sweet flavour of blueberries and wheat with a tart, dry, mildly bitter finish. Light to medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation.

500ml bottle from LCBO. Toronto, ON. 4.5% alc. / vol. Pours a hazy dark gold colour with 1 finger of white head. Lacing clings to the side of the glass. Aroma of refreshing blueberries. Lively carbonation. Smooth finish. This is definitely Gahan’s best of their series.

JoeMcPhee (8565) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2014
Pale yellow pour with a thick white head and a hazed appearance. The aroma is softly blueberryish with a light wheatiness and a touch of spice. Softly sweet and a little bit earthy. Decent summer ale. Fruit more apparent in the nose than on the palate. I like it.
