Beer Review: Wachusett Brewing Co. Blueberry Ale

Brewery: Wachusett Brewing Co.,, Westminster, MA

Beer: Blueberry Ale

Style: Fruit Beer

ABV: 4.5%

Availability: year-round

Brewer’s Notes: “This ale defines the style. A slight aroma of blueberry, balanced by a delicious flavor that gets fermented into this wheat ale.”

Beer Dope Review: You get the blueberry aroma as soon as you pop the cap and it doesn’t stop. It pours a clear, golden color. First sip is blueberries and the finish is more of the same. It’s not like some of the fruit beers you’ll see at new craft breweries that are pink or orange and look more like slushes . WBC’s Blueberry Ale is an easy to drink, light beer with a hint of blueberry. Tasting it reminds you it is, in fact, a wheat beer but the fruitiness reminds you it’s summer – or whenever, really.

If you’re looking for a beer that’s refreshing, this fruit offering from Wachusett is an old-school standby.
