It's Poppin': Grimm's Blueberry Pop!

In this golden age of craft beer creativity, it's rare that a brewery can surprise us with a new style of beer we've never seen before. With their series of "dessert Berliner weisses," Grimm Artisanal Ales did just that. The brewery has dubbed these beers "creamsicle-inspired," which makes sense: these are beers with big, lush fruit flavor, backed up by a rush of vanilla aromatics and a touch of residual sweetness. They are insanely delicious.

The newest addition to the "Pop!" family of dessert Berliners is Blueberry Pop!, which, appropriately, features blueberries as the fruit contribution. It has huge blueberry flavor which is perked up a bit by a tangy lactic acidity and rounded out with just the right amount of lactose sweetness. A touch of oaky tannin helps keep things balanced and a bright pink hue keeps it pretty.

It's a delightful beer that is rich but refreshing--not heavy or cloying--and fruit-packed but complex. Bring on more dessert Berliners, beer world--this is great!

Now available in 22oz bottles.
