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.

On tap. Definitely a unique beer. It is super blueberryish, I didn’t like it too too much though.

On tap at Milwaukee Ale House. Poured crystal-clear, fiery orange with a well-retained, sticky beige head.. looked great! The aroma picked up fresh blueberry and herbal notes over soft pale and caramel malts.. I loved the tea infusion. Blueberry tea led the flavor department, and re-filled the nostrils.. caramel and pale malts gave some support.. sharp and not entirely pleasant herbal bitterness stuck on the finish.. a bit disjointed. Light-medium bodied and strangely bitter on the palate.. filling carbonation.. just an OK feel and flow.. this started out better than it finished.

On tap at the Milwaukee Brewing Co. Pours a hazy amber brown with a tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma is full of ripe sweet blueberries with a bit of backing sweet grains. Flavor has a combination of blueberry and sweet grains with the blueberries taking over in the finish.

Bottle. Slightly murky amber pour with a small soapy head. Nice blueberry in the aroma. Tea comes out and makes this a bit dryer and not too sweet. Pretty nice brew.

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.

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.

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.

Bottled version by MKE Brewing. Clear copper with a thin off-white head. Aroma is malty with blueberry and floral notes. Taste is thin bodied with mild blueberry, malt and mild spices.

Draft at Milwaukee Brewing Co. Per head Brewer, this started as an accident when they watered down a back of Louie’s demise. Rather than dump it, though decided to add the Blueberry Rooibos tea and voila!. Anyway, pours a deep golden amber with a frothy head. The nose is Huge blueberry nutrigrain bars with some other light berry notes. Some soft malt and faint herbal hops? On tasting, more of that sweet and fruity blueberry caricature. Pillowy malts that lend a good amount of body. Interesting beer, overall.

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.
