3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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...

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.
