Backwoods Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
We’re continuing to answer your requests for exciting summer beers that bring something memorable and delicious to the sunshine season.
In the middle of 90-degree weather, very few things will cool you off as effectively as Backwoods Brewing’s Blueberry Wheat Ale. The tart, tangy yet sweet crush of blueberry is the ideal refreshment but it’s rarely used in beer.
You’ll be instantly mesmerized by the bright spill of blueberry aroma. All that sweet berry goodness is masterfully tamed in the flavor; Backwoods’ use of a light, crisp wheat base balances the berry power into a revitalizing palate bath of carbonation, crackery malts and a snappy bite of black pepper. This thirst-quenching brew will put any snow cone, fresh squeezed lemonade or standard light beer to utter shame.
Infusing light bodied beers with fruit adjuncts is just one of the many ways craft beer is revolutionizing summer beers. But the blueberry is a tricky addition – this potent berry can overwhelm a beer. Too much brewing bravado and all you taste is the fruit but if you’re too cautious, you barely notice it’s there. Backwoods dives right through the sweet spot with Blueberry Wheat – juicy notes of blueberry jam intermingle with slightly toasted grains and a careful sprinkling of bitter spice.
Do yourself a favor and set this one aside for that really warm summer day – when all you want is something perfectly cool and refreshing.
