Deep bronze color. Nice blueberry head, authentic and not generative of comparisons to artificial flavorings. Malty nose comes through as it warms; otherwise, the blueberry is nicely balanced with what ’s there. (on tap at the brew pub, Minneapolis)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft. Wow, what a special treat! This one wasn’t on the board or the menu. Pours a very hazy purple opaque color with a head that is slightly tinted blue/purple. Farily strong sweet blueberry aroma. The taste is pretty amazing and like nothing I have had before but you better like blueberries if you are drinking this. Sweet subtle blueberry flavors pretty much dominate the flavor profile. Medium mouthfeel. Good lace. A nice refreshing beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Thunderstorm honey & lemongrass ale, infused and aged with 13 pounds of blueberries.
A 10 ounce serving in a snifter. Full blown purple, with little head.
Tart & fruity nose, big, sweet, & rosy.
Crisp and bold up on top, but thins out a bit after awhile. It’s everything if claims to be, Thunderstorm with blueberries. Loads of fruit punch, then an alcoholic kick.
That’s as far as my notes go...a very nice brew, worth the trying. And savoring.

a rating from this summer:
light brown in color small white head good lacing. Sweet smell hints of honey and a good amount of berry, I guess blueberry but that doesn’t quite come through as I’d expect. touches of bread and sugars. Palate is lightly carbonated and well coated. Flavor is overly sweet.. odd berry piece I just didn’t like on top of honey and some bread.. just not very good.
