A dark pinkish blue with a thin purple head. In aroma,, nice blueberry juice witg light malt overtone. In mouth, a sweet blueberry juice with malt but there are some hops here that just dont fit, astringent. The body is light and dry. So-so.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2013 Draft. Pours purple with pink head. Nose of fresh blueberry, blueberry syrup, malt and maple. Taste is same but more malt and less fresh blueberry. Lighter medium body.

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!

The Lure:
Blueberries leap out of the glass, bursting out from the jiggling tower of foam. Oranges and yeast accompany the blueberries boldly, and loads of sediment defy the weary onlookers.

The Festivities:
A prominent yeast recalls that of Fantôme’s, as does the fruitiness of prevalent oranges, lemons and peaches, and the vivacious carbonation. Mouthfeel is full and serves the authentic blueberries on a sweet and acidic platter.

Transcendence:
Slowly but surely building energy after a night of camping in the country, aroused by the surrounding life.

Thanks Walleye for the bottle: Pours a deep reddish hue with a mostly lasting head and good lace. Truth in advertising...yup, blueberry pancakes is most of the aroma and quite inviting for the blueberry fan. Some dusty and floral esters appear every so often and even a hit of barnyard funk. The taste starts again with the blueberry but less dominating than in the aroma. You can pick out some notes of roasted malts and lightly earthy finish. The feel is lively and a touch mineral laden. This is good but I still like a few other blueberry infused beers better. Still worthy of a try if you dig this kind of thing.

Draft at Torst with Clockwork and Joel. Pours a deep body with thick off white head. Aroma is blueberries and fruit juice. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of blueberries, fruit juice, wine and light breadiness.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
Dark gold hue, beige bubbly head gives trouble upon pouring. Obvious blueberry and bready yeast in the aroma, very sweet, almost cough syrup like, but not overwhelming. Nicely tart on the palate, it is unable to find a path through the syrupy sweetness and the overall balance is not the best I’ve encountered from Kuhnhenn’s fruit beers. Tart grainy fruit purée, pie-like, desserty and highly yeasty. Foamy palate proposes explosive big bubbles and an overall gazy profile.

Pailhead (5685) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAR 17, 2015
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.

This one poured a bright blueish purple color with a minimal pink hued head. Aroma was just straight blueberries, light funky cheeseyness blueberries have, and some buttery buckwheat notes too. Flavor is just almost completely spot on, lots of blueberry notes, lightly wild, followed by pancake butter and grainieness. Not sure how they really could have done this one any better.

Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
Sample at the Mondiale 2005: Poured a weird orangey/brown color ale with a weird foamy head with limited retention. Aroma is solely constituted of pancake blueberry. I’m sure I can smell the flour and the fresh blueberry. Blueberry, white flour and butter also dominate taste. Some sourness in the aftertaste was a bit odd and difficult to explain but was still enjoyable. Overall, this is a very good blueberry beer.
