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.

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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

Growler split with Joe and Alan, pours hazy red orange with thin head and not much lacing. Aromas of heavy bluberry, sweet malts, and light pancake. Flavor has sweet bluberries, gingerbread, belgian spice, and lots of malt. Medium to fuller body. Active carbonation. Lacks some balance and needs more pancake flavor. Still a very interesting brew from Kuhnhenn.

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. Serving type: growler

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

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