Year of New Beer: Blueberry Birthday Cake, Ethereal Brewing Co (Lexington)

Written By: Dion on 06/13/2020

So this legitimately smells like blueberry cake batter or muffin mix. The berry aroma is present, but subtle. Things pick up on the tongue with a slightly sour blueberry sinking into the lactose sweetness. Very cake-like as it warms, with a thicker, milkshake type feel. Even with a really sweet base, the blueberry manages to keep a foothold throughout, offering just the right amount of countering tartness. Unlike anything Ethereal has ever done, and I really enjoyed it. Just wish I had put more than 2 in my online cart...sold out in under 5 minutes, so I guess I was lucky to get those.
