Central 28 Currantly Blue

What the brewers say

“Tart American wheat beer brewed with real black currant, blueberries, cinnamon, and vanilla bean.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Fruity nose, somewhere between strawberry and blueberry. Sweet—almost Nehi/Fanta like, but crossed with cream soda. Blueberries, cinnamon, and black currant, too.”

Flavor: “Drier than expected from the aroma, that brings out the subtle character in the fruit. Finish is a bit astringent, but softened by the mellow sourness. The spice character adds some nice complexity but isn’t overdone, which lets the fruit character dominate.”

Overall: “Light and fairly refreshing, but would have been better with just the fruit. The finish comes across a little harsh and the carbonation is rather low. Still, this is built for the summer.”
