He's right, so this week I decided to review Blue Point Brewing Company's Blueberry Ale. Fruit beers are not my all-time favorite style but I do enjoy certain fruit beers that are well made.
This particular fruit beer poured an amber color with a nice white foamy head. The nose is fruity with lots of blueberries and some light malt.
The first sip is more blueberry fruit along with a light amount of malt and almost no hops. The finish is short and light without much of an impact on the palate.
This beer has a very light body is almost more like a lager then an ale.
Overall, this beer is just okay, as there is nothing that really stands out to me at all. I have a feeling that this beer is made more for lambic or lighter beer fans, but there is a real lack of hop character.
The simple pairing here is a light romaine heart salad with fresh blueberries. A dessert pairing would match this beer with a sweet blueberry cobbler.
