The Howe Sound Brewing Company is kicking it “Old School” with the You’re My Boy Blue. This Blueberry Wheat Ale comes in 1l resealable bottles and comes in at 4.5% alcohol. From the rather large bottle the beer flows as a cloudy purple colour that resembles the inside of a ripe blueberry. A finger and a half of pinkish hued head tops the glass as it settles without a trace. A wheat-filled aroma of blueberry with a light jammy sweetness comes through on the nose. The blueberry notes are rather strong and forecast a fairly sweet beer but there is a smoothness to the smell at the same time. The flavour is starts off as a fairly traditional american-styled wheat ale. A sweetness joins the wheat tones as from that sweetness emerges the blueberry flavours. Compared to the aroma the blueberry taste is rather subdued and the jam-like aroma doesn’t translate to the flavour. The colour and aroma forecast something quite strong on the blueberry but the flavour is a rather light and delicious infusion of fruit into a summer session beer.
