Blueberry Cobbler Ale is an American Wheat Ale brewed by Funky Buddha Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a shaker pint glass from a bottle.
The ale pours a murky, ruby red and is topped by an inch-thick cap of pink fluff that offers modest retention.
The aroma is strikingly sweet with a scent of blueberries, cinnamon, vanilla, brown sugar, and wheat. It really smells like something you’d want for dessert.
The palate follows the nose beginning with fruity blueberries, balanced atop a malty, wheat base. It’s balanced by a bite of tart cherry before it finishes sweetly with vanilla.
Its creamy mouthfeel has a light body and low carbonation.
The Blueberry Cobbler Ale is nearly a dessert beer in taste but otherwise ticks all the boxes expected for a wheat ale. It’s a refreshing, easy-drinking brew that’s pure joy in a glass. A must try.
Funky Buddha recommends the following food pairings with their Blueberry Cobbler Ale: Mount Tam cheese, blueberry scones, falafel with pita, eggs benedict, ahi tuna tacos with wasabi crema, and perogis.
