We took a batch of Louie’s Demise and added a bunch of Rishi’s Organic Blueberry Rooibos and Hibiscus Tea blends to our secondary fermentation vessel. After two weeks of cold infusion we filtered out the tea, carbonated it.

Draught pint at Lucy’s #7 in Beloit, WI, August 25th. Probably not a lot of other Ratebeerians who get excited - or even mildly interested - when they see a new fruit beer. I’m not sure "excited" is the right appellation for my feelings either - but I grew up (craft-beer-wise that is) on New Glarus, and living again in the state where it’s brewed, I do always have the hopes that new fruit beers - particularly from Wisconsin brewers - might come close to measuring up. Well...it pours a transparent copper with a bit of lasting creamy foam...there’s a strong, reasonably fresh sweet blueberry element in the nose that completely overpowers everything else for a while; some minutes into it I can detect a bit of other herbal characteristic, though I’d be hard-pressed to name it "tea"...tart fruitiness carries through the tasting, pretty dry overall, just a hint of malt...bitter, lightly cardboard finish; somewhat thin and watery. Yeah, this doesn’t measure up. Better luck next time.

Purplish amber color with a bright white head. Lots of blueberry sweetness in the aroma plus a bit of malt. Flavor is a lightly tart bitterness up front followed by juicy hit of blueberry and light creamy malt. Moderate carbonation and medium bodied with a dry, berry finish. I don’t normally care for fruit beers but this one is put together very welll

Red brown. Nose of fresh blueberries. Flavor is light blueberry with an herbal bitterness and mild toasted malt. The bitterness outshines the other flavors a bit, but good.

Smells like blueberries. Color is dark amber quickly dissipating head. Very nice lacing with this beer. Will get again for sure.

BVery (9791) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2015
Bottle - MKE labeled. Fairly clear amber pour with a small soapy head. Nice blueberry in the aroma. Tea comes out and makes this a bit dryer and not too sweet. Pretty nice brew.

GranvilleTim (1854) - Granville, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Golden amber pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is blueberry candy. Taste is light blueberry flavor, malt base, crisp, ok beer. So-so lacing.

TXBadger (2619) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Pours a nice amber color with off-white head. Blueberries, hop resin, just a hint of caramel malt, and some resin on the nose; follows onto the palate. I must have gotten a nice fresh one, really good.

Frank (4047) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2014
This beer initially smells like a Hostess blueberry pie but wanes to a relatively normal beer pretty fast. It is not exactly the best thing I’ve ever tasted but it is not as cloying as it first smells. It pours a brownish orange color w/ a small head of fine, white bubbles. The nose is initially saturated w/ an exaggerated blueberry flavor but that is thankfully short-lived. After that, it just becomes a fairly bland amber ale w/ just a touch of toasty malt character and earthy hops. It is medium bodied and moderately carbonated but still comes off a little heavy for the gravity. There are no real off-notes unless you count extreme blueberry as an off-flavor but that is about all this has going for it.

dekester1 (356) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Poured a deep amber with a nice head and lacing. Aroma was of malts with a slight blueberry hint. Taste was also of a malty amber with a light blueberry flavoring in the background. Palate was very nice. Overall a nice blueberry amber. Not too strong on the berry - just right.
