Gahan blueberry ale

Gahan released a blueberry ale in bottle.  It is tasty stuff, not made with extract.

How many would you like?  They have a Lobster Ale as well.

Chris,
I'd take one of the blueberry and one of the lobster if you don't mind!

It's a saison with a small amount of lobster shell added before fermentation.  I'm not really sure what they're expecting to get out of that, but a beer that even has a hint of lobster to it is entirely unappealing to me.  I wonder how well it will be received.

Lobster shell can be used to make a stock, so... yeah. This sounds freaking awful.

I'd still give it a taste to confirm.

It tastes great, they said that it only has a few drops of lobster juice in a big tank. It is a 6.5 ABV saison.

So Gimmick, not substantial.
Shame to waste a good beer on that kind of marketing, but having seen the new brewpub area, it's clear there's a TON of cash behind it.

The new brewery is very impressive, they have it setup for tours, $10 each.

I wonder what kind of yeast they use for the Saison, or if they use the same yeast for everything.

from this review it looks like it's the typical saison taste

I think the lobster is a commercial stunt more than anything else but it's still cool to see a commercial saison and Iím curious to try it

Potentially too low a threshold, but ignoring the flavour isn't this gimmick likely to induce allergic reactions in some?

They claimed that there was no risk as there is something little lobster.
