New Beer Blog Fat Head’s Bumble Berry Ale


In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Fat Head’s Brewery.  It is their Bumble Berry Ale.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Midwest and West Coast craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Ohio base craft brewery.  Let us get into this fruit beer.

It has a clear golden color with a white constant head. The aroma has a heavy blueberry notes. The taste has a sweet blueberry notes with a heavy blueberry finish for the aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.

Here is a description from their website (www.fatheadsbeer.com):

Brewed with fresh harvested spring honey stolen from some very angry bees (we have the welts to prove it) and infused with fresh blueberries. Creating a light, refreshing ale with a nice blueberry aroma, crackery malt flavors, a hint of sweetness and a refreshing blueberry finish. Get yo buzz on!

Food Pairings: Salads, Chicken, Oatmeal Cookies.

Closing, fruit beers are the hottest trend right now in the beer world.  There are some craft breweries that already had fruit beers.  This beer was one of them.  I like it and I will get more. It is not like Wild Blue when it first came out. I am not a fan of Wild Blue anymore because my taste of beer has changed.  Blueberry is there but not overpowering unlike Wild Blue.  This is a great dessert beer and perfect one in the summer.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Blue Point Brewing.  It is their Blueberry Ale.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Long Island, New York brewery.  If you have not, please, read those beer blog posts to get to know this brewery.  Let us get into beer.

It has a clear golden color without a head.  The smell is heavy blueberry.  The taste of this light body beer is heavy blueberry notes.  It is extremely drinkable beer.

Here is a description from their website (www.bluepointbrewing.com):

Who knew that throwing some blueberries into a batch of beer one day would have worked out so well? While there’s no Oompa-Loompas involved in its production; there’s definitely something special that makes Blueberry Ale one of our top-sellers. First brewed in 1998, this delicious golden ale quickly became a year-round favorite. Our fresh Blueberry Ale offers an unusual twist on brewing that turns out to be a wonderful blend of fresh blueberries matched with a distinctive, thirst quenching ale. We carefully add 732 pounds of fresh, plump and juicy, handpicked, USA Northern Highbush Blueberries to every batch. Even before your first sip of Blueberry Ale, a strong, refreshing sweet fruit aroma emanates from the bottle, kicking your taste-buds into overdrive.

Closing, I do get into my fair share of fruit beers.  I love pretty much everything I have had from Blue Point Brewing.  I had this beer for the first time in Cooperstown, New York.  I have to say I was pretty impressed.  I picked up this bottle on my way back to Chicago from Detroit.  I wanted to re-try this brew just to make sure I still like it.  This beer is pretty balanced from the golden ale and the blueberries.  It is sweet but not overly sweet.  I recommend you trying this brew.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!
