Feelin' Kinda Blue?
Feelin Kinda Blue? If so then we have just the thing for you. Kinda Blue is the newest release from Boulder Beer, and is the tenth such offering in their Looking Glass Series--a series that hasn't seen an addition since Hazed and Infused in 2001. Kinda Blue is a wheat beer brewed with the addition of real blueberries.
Like the name suggests, Kinda Blue only had moderate blueberry aromas. The color of the brew was much darker and more orange than most traditional wheat beers. It was spritzy in the mouth with nice carbonation. There was little going on in the hops department, the dominant flavors were wheat and bread. The beer had a noticeable tartness, especially on the finish, as well as a hint of lemon zest. Overall Kinda Blue fit the brewers description of only having muted tones of blueberry.
Kinda Blue fits the bill as a refreshing wheat beer that is perfect for the summer. But if you are looking for a blueberry beer gushing with fruit, you may want to look somewhere else, as we would only consider this offering kind of a blueberry beer. Our favorite blueberry beer, Dark Horses Tres Blueberry Stout, unfortunately wont be out for another 4-5 months. What is your favorite blueberry inspired brew?
