COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our newest ‘year round’ seasonal. We know that makes no sense! It’s seasonal because we use the fruit that is in season at the time we brew. This Belgian Blonde ale has fruit added during fermentation and is filtered prior to packaging. Our first brew of Area 151 was done with blackberries which gives the beer a beautiful color. The beer is ever so slightly sweet, but it balances nicely with a little pepper and Belgian ester on the finish.

$1.99 can from Whole Foods. Pours murky purple with a small off-pink head. Aroma is tart fruit - supposedly blackberry but I can't tell that by nose alone. Flavor is tart berry, green leaves, bread, cheap lager undertones. Lots of fruit - has a weird vibe to this.

22OA bottle. Pours a golden - copper with substantial head. Pretty tasty and not overly sweet. Well balanced and would drink again

Split a 22oz bottle. Poured a orange-copper color with a small off white head. Aroma was some blackberry notes, light yeast, sweet malts. Flavor was light sweet malts, a touch of Belgian notes and a bunch of blackberry notes. Kinda enjoyed this one.

bubbleflubber (2244) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Pours pink-copper into the glass, with an initial suds head that diminishes fully. The nose is of yeasty esters. Citric blackberry and some skins to finish. Not a lot of malt to substantiate the brew, which leaves the body somewhat thin and seltzery on the palate. I would not have ever guessed this was Belgian instead of an ordinary fruit beer. Not enough going on in the complexity department.

2.8
Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange-pink color with a thin creamy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of tart berries and grainy malts. The taste is tart and sweet berries with faint bready malts. Medium bodied, too much fruit which leads to a building sweetness that is not welcome.
