COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It takes an award winning Belgian Witbier, a little bit of time, a whole lot of love and, most importantly, a mountain of local blueberries to make our favorite fruit beer, Blueberry Cottonmouth.

Each year, around the end of the Florida blueberry harvest and the beginning of Summer, we meet up with a nice group of local blueberry farmers and bring in a mountain of their bounty… all for one batch of Florida’s fruit beer.

The result is a slightly funky and tart blueberry witbier for everyone in Florida to enjoy.

Golden amber colored pour. Small white head. Not much lacing. Aroma is malt and yeast, a typical wit nose. Taste in s the same with a tiny bit of blueberry. Strange that it would taste like blueberries but not have any aroma of them.

With Zach, pours an orange reddish hue with a small head. Nose is grainy and fruity. Taste is a generic wheat bear with some subtle, if any blueberries. Finish is grainy and short. Fair at best ! No next time for me !Quaff Score 5 / 10

Bomber. Pours a golden orange with a white head and aroma of wheat and malt. Taste is light, of wheat, malt, straw, and little blueberry with a wheaty finish. Refreshing but not much more

PorterPounder (5451) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl. - on tap at Proof’s Production facility tap room. Hazy, dark orange pour, soft snow white head. Aroma is kind of chemically, slight blueberry accents. Flavor is pleasant with with some natural tasting blueberry accents, a touch of savory blueberry sour candy. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Decent.

Nose is weak, more banana than blueberry. Look doesn’t tell you much but the flavors are pretty good and the body is solid for the style. Overall, the bottle and idea is exciting and the beer inside is ok...

what a joke. absolutely no blueberry, and then you are left with just regular Cottonmouth, which is a middling wit anyway. dont bother.

This is a case of straight up false advertising! Picked up a bottle at the brewery and eagerly awaited opening it when I got home. Read the reviews about blue color and fruity flavor and aroma. I opened it and it is straight up YELLOW and has ZERO blueberry aroma or flavor. This is basically a regular wit. VERY disappointed.

On tap at CCB Brewpub, day after fruit in the room, poured alight blue/pinkish color with aromas of light sour blueberries, and some wheat. Flavors were light wheat, chemical blueberries, and some sourness in the finish.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a light purplish pink color with hardly any head. Aroma smells like a fruit sour beer, with a bit of blueberry and sour cherry. Flavor doesn’t follow the aroma. Taste is light witbier with a bit of fruit (though, not super blueberry flavor which is good since I’m not a huge blueberry fan). Mouthfeel is light, with adequate carbonation. Not bad at all.
