==Introduction==

Pipeworks brewing beers are so far away yet, thankfully, to online resources, I am able to bring this one forward. Blueberry beers are something of a rare commodity and when done right, they can be spectacular. I have only had a chance to try the Ninjas vs. Unicorn from Pipeworks and believe me, I wish I had more. They seem to be making some great beers out in the mid west and is something I hope we can see here in California. For now, I plan on doing this beer review since the blueberry beers I have tried in the past are freaking awesome. So let’s take a look at this limited release one, cheers!

Aromas:
Banana, clove spice, bubble gum, ginger spice, cinnamon, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla , carmel, dark fruits like raisins, plums, toffee, rich blueberry pie, blueberry cheesecake, tart raspberries, currants, Concorde grapes, flan, brown sugar, dark chocolate, Mexican chocolate, piloncillo and raisins bread pudding.

Flavors:
Rich Bananas, clove spice, Blueberry pie, hazelnut, pecan pie, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, piloncillo, dark fruit raisins, plums, figs, currants, raspberries, cherries, blackberries, dulce de leche caramel, vanilla, raisin bread pudding, bubblegum, flan hints, ginger bread, fruit cake notes, pumpkin spice, Mexican Chocolate notes, dark chocolate, chocolate covered blueberries, marshmallows, coconut hints, brown sugar, Danish cookies, toffee, strawberry shortcake and blueberry cheesecake.

Aftertaste:
Dark fruits, clove spice, ginger spice, cinnamon, blueberry muffins, earthy notes and caramel. No alcohol in the taste, creamy and smooth mouthfeel, pitch dark crimson and purple full body and a moderate drinkability.

Overall:
Damn good and complex blueberry ale. Aside from being being nice and fruit, the spices of fall are laid it out very well in front. This beer is my second favorite next to the Draco from Montegioco (which was also a dragon beer with blueberries) and the Smashed Blueberry beer from Shipyard. This beer has definitely hit many of those dark fruit notes not just blue berry and what a true blueberry pie with crust and icecream is supposed to be like. A total crazy dessert. I highly recommended especially since it has a dragon on the label!

Anime Corner:
Asmodeus from Shinra Bansho, Amari by luigiix and Godzilla personification by gamerag3 were chosen as the three dragons of Thanksgiving. I am not sure if I will get a chance to find the other beers but to go with the aspect of 3 blueberry dragons or dragon like characters, I chose them Asmodeus to represent the fierceness yet smoothness of the alcohol, Amari with the pie crust, vanilla, caramel and other sweet pie flavors of blueberries and Godzilla female personification as the dark fruits and the true drive of this beer especially how the dragon hugs the skyscraper like Zilla Jr. wrapped around the empire state building in the American Godzilla cartoon intro.
