Smashed Blueberry Homerun

Shipyard Brewing Company's Alan Pugsley has hit another homerun with this amazing ale "Smashed Blueberry".   Wow!  I found it in the "Seasonal Craft Beer" section at Total Wine, and thought "the Imperial Porter was great... why not try this one too?"

It was amazing.  It had a smooth taste, full of flavor, and after swallowing, it was like a Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory scene - 'the blue berry really tastes like blue berry!'  I tasted blue berries.  I smelled blue berries.  The melodious scent of ripe blue berries filled my sinuses, senses, and total being.  I was surprised to find I was not turning blue and swelling up into a spheroid shape.  "Pleasant" doesn't begin to describe it.  Delicious, and worth the $6 I paid for it.

Alan Pugsley is a master of his craft, and I for one am delighted that he's in Maine making amazing craft beers and ales.  I normally do not like fruity beers or ales, but Smashed Blueberry has opened my mind and outlook to new possibilities.
