518. Bar Harbor Brewing True Blue Blueberry Ale
This was my third and final blueberry beer to review and it comes from Bar Harbor Brewing. They are actually part of Atlantic Brewing Company but still have a separate brand name. I am happy that both Maine blueberry beers were not the syrupy sweet fruit beers that so many others end up with.
The color of this one is mostly beer – no artificial blue or purple colors. Aroma has some blueberry but also a nice malt character to it.. Taste follows but starts with the malts and ends with the blueberry. Overall a nice beer and the low ABV meant the bomber was gone quickly. I enjoyed the beer but not sure I would buy another.
Alcohol Content: 5.2% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): ??

Brewers Description: This beer is brewed with a blend of barley malts and crushed wheat to gently lighten the body. True Blue is a crisp blueberry ale with an assertive blueberry nose followed by a more subtle blueberry flavor in the body of the beer. We feel you won’t find another beer quite like it.
