COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took a batch of Louie’s Demise and added a bunch of Rishi’s Organic Blueberry Rooibos and Hibiscus Tea blends to our secondary fermentation vessel. After two weeks of cold infusion we filtered out the tea, carbonated it. It has a blueberry and strawberry nose with a slight malty aspect. Hints of Caramel and Munich malts come out as the beer warms. The flavors are subtle with the Hibiscus at the forefront of the palate. The tea blends add a smooth but tart finish to this beer. This is definitely a different beer.

MKE brewing has been making good beers lately. Living in Milwaukee, I was admittedly one of their biggest skeptics in years past. Over the past 2 years or so, I’ve had several very good beers from them. Based on the description and bottle, I had low expectations. However, this beer is quite delicious. The aroma has very potent blueberry notes, so I was worried it would be way too sweet. The flavor is not overly sweet, though, and this is a very sessionable beer. The base beer is just OK, but it allows the blueberry tea to really shine. It’s a nice option for a hot summer day.

Bottled, MKE version. This was a decent beer. Amber color. Light, dry malt base complimented by blueberry aroma and some blueberry flavor. Not a bad fruit beer at all, and not sweet like so many of them.

spilledpint (341) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2012
12 oz. bottle from a Christmas sampler. Ar: Aroma of dried blueberries, moderate roast malt. Ap: Pours a slightly hzy toffee with a nice one inch frothy manila head. Great retention. Good looking beer. T: Pretty assertive dried blueberry flavor up front, a touch sweet but not overly so. Finish is slightly grassy bitterness. Somewhat watery for my tastes. P: Fairly thin and somewhat sticky with pretty moderate carbonation. O: This had the potential to be a stinker, but all in all this is a fun one. Tastes really similar to a blueberry tea blend I bought for my wife one year, which isn’t all that surprising.

I like the carbonation. Big blueberry muffin aroma. Semi-sweet blueberry flavor. Blueberry really comes through, not muted. I like it

12oz bottle shared by Brian. Unfiltered orange-tan, murky. Foamy, soapy white head. Big sweet blueberry pie aroma. Flavorful, but a touch artificial. Straightforward, OK.

Aroma is blueberry muffins in a bottle. The flavor is similar to the aroma, along with mild sweetness and fruit tartness in the finish. Pretty good and unique.

Fruit overpowers the other flavors, so I suppose it performs as advertised. This is not an unpleasant beer, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for another one.

Bottle - Pours clear amber with a big foamy light tan head. Blueberry pie filling prominent on the nose, a big jammy smell. Dry bready malt beneath the fruit. Taste loses a bit, as the malt and the fruit get a bit muddled. It’s still blueberry jam, but some mineral notes come in and dull the whole thing. Medium body and ample carbonation. Pleasant, but not something I’d revisit.
