Firkin at The Bruery. Normal Filthy Blond with blueberry. The blueberry adds some sweetness and covers the funkyness of the Filthy Blond. My least favorite of the three fruit Filthy Blonds.

A: The pour is a purplish-pink color with quite a bit of haze and a short lived off-white head.
S: A decent tartness to the nose that you seem to get with blueberries. Not really any distinctly blueberry aroma to it, but fruity and perhaps a bit woodsy.
T: The beer is quite dry, woody, and astringent (aspirin quality to it). The fruit seems to have contributed to all three of these factors. There is a faint tartness to it, and a mild berry flavor.
M: The body is medium and like all the other casks, very mildly carbonated.
D: This one was hard to drink due to the astringency of the beer. Blueberries seem to be hard to do (well) in a beer, and this is another example.
