Bodacious Blueberry Blonde
Bodacious Blueberry Blonde is an alliterative blueberry flavoured ale from the Broadhead Brewing Company in Ottawa, Ontario. Sold in 473mL cans that describe a ninja-inspired "blueberry infusion process", this little clocks in at a standard 5% alcohol and an innocuous 12 IBUs.
BBB is a hazy golden-orange beer that pours with a layer of tight white head. It packs a powerful blueberry aroma that cloaks just about everything beer about the nose, other than a faint graininess. The flavour is a bit too far on the sweet side and there is almost no bitterness, but it has a very nice blueberry quality and a smooth mouthfeel.
A nice take on the blueberry ale, I'd buy this stuff again, though I'd be more inclined to drink it again in the summer. A bit more beery bitterness would also help a bit.
Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
