Beer God’s Notes
Original Tasting Notes: I expected this to be a little more purple. It had the smell and taste of blueberry. Not overly tart.
This was a really enjoyable beer. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about it because I’ve had really bad blueberry beers before. I haven’t had any (or many) blueberry sours, though so this might open the door a bit.
When I first opened this I was hit with a ton of blueberry scent. So much that I assumed that the beer would be a little purple. It was not at all (which surprised me). The flavor matched what I was expecting. It was definitely a Berliner that had blueberry in it. The Berliner style was still there with a good amount of blueberry in the finish.
Napoleon’s troops referred to Berliner Weisse as the “Champagne of the North” due to its lively and elegant character. Today this style is described by some as the most refreshing beer in the world. Our Blueberry Berliner Weisse is fermented with a great blueberry puree. This New England approach brings a refreshing blueberry flavor and aroma to a German classic. We feel our approach creates an authentic interpretation of the traditional “mit syrup” or with syrup method of serving this classic summer refresher. We hope you enjoy this unique year round beer.
