Just racked 5 gal onto the puree mix and it smells amazing. Also has a nice deep purple color. Bottled the other gal to have some to taste side by side with the rest that went on the fruit.

I did try one of the bottles of the 12 pack I bottled of the brew before fruit. It was nice... Hoppy aroma with a nice balance of hop and malt flavor with a faint bready finish. Will update a pic of that soon.

This beer sounds really good. I had a decently hoppy blueberry pale ale once...it was surprisingly good.

I really like Golden Promise...I did a version of the Imperial Pale Ale from Extreme Brewing. Used only golden promise, added myrica gale with the bittering hop addition, and elderberries at 10 mins with the flavoring hops. Came out fantastic and the gale really added a cool buzz. Everyone in my brewclub liked it.

Hella tasty!!!! When I racked onto the fruit I filled the carboy waaaay too high so I had to take 1/4 to 1/2 a gallon out and add that to what I had already planned to bottle as what was supposed to be a "pre fruit" version of the final product. Well by doing that I ended up with a very small amount amount of fruit puree in each bottle. The aroma is fruity, and the flavor is hoppy and berry like with a malty bready finish. Im really proud of this original recipe. I will be brewing this for every 4th of July and probably more often than that. If I were to change anything I'd hop it up about an oz more on the flavoring addition and maybe a little on the bittering. Cheers
