COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There once was an old Belgian man who walked his donkey past a blueberry patch that was tended to by a beautiful maiden named Paige. Her blueberries were the juiciest in the land, which legend has it was due to her tending her patch in the nude. Every day as the old Belgian walked past the naked farmer with the fantastic berries, he was left with the most painful set of blue balls ever bestowed on a man. Brewed in the old man’s honor, we created a hefty 9% alc/vol Belgian wheat & rye concoction which features a squirt of the naked girl’s fresh organic blueberries from Serenbe Farms, giving Big Ol Belgian Blue Balls a slight taint of blueberry undertones to help him ease the pain. It’ll leave you lusting for more!

22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin off white head. The aroma had sweet malts, caramel hints, blueberry fruitiness, a touch of spicy rye. and yeast. The flavor had toasted bread with mild caramel, blueberry, grassy, with a hint of spicy rye. The flavor was not as big as I had hoped. Decent, but I thought it would be bigger.

Bottle. Rated 2/28/10, but site didn’t work that day; just found the rating. Nine percent! The bottle doesn’t say, I didn’t expect it would be that much. I’d better take it easy. Bit flat, not much head. Sweet orange aroma, lime, quite sugary. Taste very sweet, only a hint of blueberries, although it does taste like other blueberry beers I have had. There’s a certain tartness of a blueberry that tends not to come through on blueberry beers for me, leaving just the sweetness. This is probably the best blueberry beer I’ve had though.

Tmoney99 (10585) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Bottle from alexsdad06. Poured hazy copper color and an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate yeast and sweet fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium yeasty sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Refreshing complex fruit beer.

Bottle. From notes and I remember this one. Very odd. Some fruit, berries. A bit rotten, sour and musty. Tasted dirty and slick.

Bottle tasting on mother’s day... been holding onto this bad boy for a little while now, don’t remember who I traded for it. Great blueberry aroma stood out from the generally malted backbone. Unfortunately, like most (good) blueberry stouts/belgians, the blueberry seems to just stay rooted in the nose. Aside from less desirable blueberry beers (such as Wild Blue) it always seems difficult to pick up much blueberry in the taste, and this is no exception. A good belgian beer with a great blueberry nose, but I really wouldn’t consider it a fruit beer. Try it.

Bottle. Pours an orange amber body with an off white head. Sweet cider notes, light apple tones, a hint of berries not so much blueberries. A hint of honey and wheat with a light citrus. Kinda messy.
