3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Couleur ambrée, semi opaque, ample mousse légèrement blanche concassée. Aromes nous immergeant facilement en plein coeur de la savane et de ces bleuets, les fruits et tout le plan semble être au rendez-vous. Quelques notes de gâteau des anges et de sucre sont également présentes. Un peu mince en bouche, levuré et moins sucré que ce que l’arôme l’indiquait. Finale très sèche. Unidimensionnel mais bien fait. Échantillon, mondial de la bière, Juin 2005.

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.

Smell was ridiculous, fresh pancake batter and blueberry. Taste fell flat for me. Some blueberry there but did not live up to the nose

The aroma is stunningly strong with a sweet blueberry syrup smell. No tartness or funk like most fruit beers. In the palate the sweetness and effervescence are dominant on the open but the maple cleanup in the end is wonderful. Super cool.

Apparently this was a pre-release bottle that walleye managed to get a hold of. Red body with a thin whiteish head that left some good lacing. The aroma did in fact remind me of pancakes smothered in the blueberry syrup you can get at IHOP. The taste was not as dominated by the blueberries but they werre still there. They werent like the fresh wild blueberries I had while hiking last summer, but they were more sugary sweet. The pancake taste was also lessed from the aroma to the taste. This would have gone good with the Creme Brulee Stout that they makes as a hell of a breakfast.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap on St. Patty’s Day 2009. Clear amber with minimal head. Aroma of blueberries, and I detect some raspberry scent, similar to Raspberry Eisbock. Aroma is also very malty. Taste of berries and malt, not much hops. Crisp and light mouthfeel. OK, but doesn’t blow me away.

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...

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