4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler... This beer rocks!… Pours clear and dark purple with flashes of crimson and a small, creamy, violet head. Smells like a blessed marriage of 100% blueberry juice and cookie dough. Full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and relaxed carbonation. Sweet blueberry juice and enough lightly bitter roastiness and mildly tart acidity to keep the residual sugar from becoming annoying and cloying. Lengthy, blueberry, sweet-tangy finish. I’m going against the grain here. Another world-class beer from Kuhnhenn - shared with the south Florida crew by biggsbowler!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy blueberry pancake batter. It pours a dark orangish-brown with a one finger off-white head that eventually fades to a thin film. The flavor starts a quick dose of caramel and light grapes. The finish has moderate-heavy blueberries with a touch of cereal grains. It?s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, maybe nitpicking, but this makes me think more of blueberry Eggo waffles than pancakes.

Growler shared by Randall. Purplish brown pour with a fleeting white head. Welch’s grape soda bouquet. Grape, blueberry, and biscuit notes. Average body and mouthfeel.

Intense blueberries aroma. Taste resembles IHOP syrup. Very sweet bordering on saccharine. Uh. Well then, that sure was a beer.

Next time order just a sample*
Pours a dirty purple yogurt, purple head foam. Blueberry aroma. Thick blueberry syrup with a little chalkiness and little vanilla. Thick body light carbonation. Hard to put down a pint of this...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. Dark beer with a violet foam for a head. Blueberry and sugar nose. This is a blueberry forward beer with some maple syrup notes. It is reminiscent of the last bite of blueberry pancake when you sop up all the syrup.

On tap at the brewery. Smells like fresh blueberries. Taste is really creamy and full of blueberry. Sugary and sweet all the way down. Pretty drinkable for how sweet it is. Definitely interesting.

Tastes like breakfast in a glass. Bit too sweet for my liking, but still very good. Not much head.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2014 [Growler / Spring 2013 Batch] Thanks, Jeff! Murky, pours like shit-colored swamp water... bottom of the barrel? Watery mud with black/blue specs floating around... What? Aroma smells like a bowl of Fruity Pebbles, blueberry perfume, faint maple, & a finish of something spicy & herbal... almost like tobacco but not as harsh. Earthy? A little sweet cocoa in the tail end, too. Taste is heavier blueberry syrup but still carries a fruity collage, again, much like Fruity Pebbles. Dense, juicy, syrupy. Brown sugar, light cocoa, & more of that ashy, herbal tobacco leaf character. Some crush black pepper notes as well. Wow, what a unique beer. I don’t know if Blueberry Pancake is the best name, but it was a pretty damn tasty brew.
[Tap @ Kuhnhenn / Spring 2014 Batch] This time around, the brew was like a thicker, blue & indigo tinted syrup with a lavender head. Aroma was definitely more blueberry oriented, rather than a collage of fruits. Blueberry syrup all day! Taste was sweet blueberries, light syrupy tones with an almost potpourri like spice element hitting hard on the back-end. All in all, almost a completely different brew from last year’s batch, but still very tasty. I like them both!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Tørst. Deep dark purple blue on the glass this and it has a nice medium sized lacing and sidesticking kinda pinkish top. Lovely sweet blueberry and raspberry concentrate aroma. It basically smells like nosing juice from the childhood - added tons and tons of sugar. Almost artificial in the aroma. Weird flavor. It has lots of blueberries, but also a salty almost ammonia like thing. Blue cheese, mustard seeds and artificial raspberry juice. It’s light oily on the mouthfeel and the carbonation level is quite high. It smelled better than it tasted, but it’s definitely a interesting one. 12.06.2013
