Beer of the Week: Big Muddy Blueberry Blonde

IMG_3983Big Muddy Blueberry Blonde (6% ABV): This fruit beer brewed by Big Muddy Brewing Company in Illinois pours a clear, diluted copper with a thick off-white head. Blueberry Blonde stays true to its name with a powerful artificial blueberry pie aroma. The flavor was better than expected and not quite as “fake” – mostly sweet blueberries with light malt finish. I would have liked a bit more bitterness to balance out the sugary sweetness. I picked up this beer because of the label and the name, and I think it served its purpose as a fun, different brew; not something I would purchase again.
