Share This Review

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.

Appearance

The ale pours a murky, ruby red and is topped by an inch-thick cap of pink fluff that offers modest retention.

Aroma

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.

Flavor

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.

Mouthfeel

Its creamy mouthfeel has a light body and low carbonation.

Overall

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.

About the American Wheat Ale

The American Wheat Ale is similar to the German Hefeweizen but it has more hops and less yeast. Its color ranges straw to gold with varying clarity. Although the style typically uses less wheat than the Hefeweizen, its clean fermentation allows for a variety of wheat flavors with a complement of hops. Its feel hovers around medium or a little below with ample carbonation. The American Wheat Ale is similar to the American Blonde Ale, but utilizes Wheat instead of the typical Two-row Pale.
