On tap. Pure blueberry aroma. Appearance is orange yellow in color. Head fades quickly and is white in color. Taste is very much like a blueberry topped pancake. Slightly thin. Tart. Very pleasant.

Draft on St Patty’s. Pours dark amber-purple with a small head that lingers a bit. Aroma and taste is blueberry pancakes and I really enjoyed this beer. This was the best of the breakfast beers by far. Nice medium body, smooth finish. Yum.

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

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!

cloudy light bronze color. aroma is...surprise! blueberry with some lactic sourness. flavor is a lambic-like tartness, fresh blueberries (perhaps barely unripe blueberries due to the sourness). spritzy like champagne, very dry finish. what’s flemish for "blueberry"? i would almost classify this as a fruit lambic. awesome beer.

about time I entered this, I had it on St. Patties day. from the tap poured a amber with off white head. aroma did get hints of blueberry and some malt some sweetness with a bit of sourness peeking through . flavor, I was expecting a little more in the flavor department. I did get did some of the blueberry and malt, with a little citrus I guess this wasn’t to bad for a breakfast beer.

from my favorite brewery, from the bottle.poured reddish color with a off white head. aroma, those nice sweet blueberries pancakes with maple syrup on them, and more blueberries on top of the pancakes. flavor, just like sitting down to breakfast for blueberry pancakes, hints of brown sugar. this is a little to sweet. but still a very good beer, going to pick up more of this stuff. will be good for a after dinner drink instead of dessert

On tap for St. Patty’s. Pours a reddish golden color with a thin off white head. Aroma is slightly sour, blueberry, pale malts, tart cherries. Flavor is blueberry, tart cherries, pale malts, acidic. Palate is medium-light, medium carbonation, sour, acidic finish. Not my favorite.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Growler. Looks to have seeped just a bit but there was still a fair amount of carbonation. Pours a deep purple to brown with very thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is uber sweet candy blueberry, slight maple syrup and malt. Taste is upfront blueberry soda followed by syrup and caramel sweetness. The beer ends up being too sweet and not carbed enough to really enjoy. I’m sure some of this had to do with the carb level but the taste just wasn’t there and I got very little bready pancake.

Growler served in a Jester King chalice. Thanks to nasty31 for sharing.
A: Pours a semi hazy ruby color with a whitish head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring to leaves some splotches of lace.
S: Straight up blueberry pancakes. Cooked blueberries with a sweet batter smell. Cooked pancakes with a sweet syrup smell also.
T: Tastes the exact same as the smell. Sauteed blueberries with a cooked pancake sweetness. A syrupy sweetness with a sugary fruitiness as well. Raw pancake batter as well.
M: The problem lies here as this growler was pretty much flat. It detracted from the drinkability and I needed some carbonation to cut some of sweetness.
O: Despite the flatness of the beer I still enjoyed this. It was really intriguing and I’d like to try some of the other Kuhnhenn Breakfast of Champions beers.
