2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells of blueberry from across the table. Blueberry taste isn’t overwhelming, but I still am not a huge fan of it crossed with the bitterness of the underlying beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at GTMW 2015
For all the times I passed through Columbus, IN I never managed to make it to ZwanzigZ. If this beer is any indication I’m not overly disappointed. While it does not have any glaring flaws it feels too much like a regional novelty in a market that is already crowded with the likes of Sun King, Upland, and whatever trickles over from Cincinnati.
Aroma / Appearance - A rosy golden base filters about a third of the light out before it escapes the other side. Pureed blueberries, vanilla, and yogurt smell like a cup of Greek yogurt or a simple smoothie.
Flavor / Palate - Dry yeast and fruit flash frozen in the grocery store aisle give this a very distinctive profile. The plain finish contributes little. Ultimately it slips into the middle of the pack, if not slightly below that, as an experiment that didn’t turn out that well.

5oz on tap at the brewpub. Labeled 5.9%, 12 IBU. Clear golden orange color. Thin white head, leaving good webs of lace. Satisfying nice bigger natural blueberry, definitely get the muffin character, nice cake-like malt. Definitely on-point. Moderate sweet taste, lighter bitter. Nice mild tart. Medium body. Smooth, kind of slick lighter carbonation, mild soft texture. Nice satisfying blueberry muffin finish. Good stuff, if you’re looking for a blueberry fix.

Backlogged rating: Golden fizzy looking with a huge Blueberry nose and grainy notes. Moderate fruit taste with touch of aspirin. Refreshing mouth feel... it is what it is. I like Back Road Blueberry Ale more.

Yellow pour with thin white head. Nose is like artificial blueberry scent. Too dominant. Taste is somewhat bitter and generally unpleasant. Not for me. Sorry.

I am not a big fan of flavored beer but I must say, I am sold on this and the chocolate beer. Love them mixed together too. Thanks to my friend Kyle for introducing these to me.

On tap at GTMW 2013. Amber with a thin tan lacemaker. Aroma of blueberry and sweet malts. Taste is mostly blueberry with a malt backer and a prickly finish.

Draft to taster at ZwanzigZ. Looks solid; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells of blueberries all the way. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Pretty good as far as blueberry beers go.
