blueberry beer a Cheval Blanc

After a lovely first film from the Fantasia Festival (www.fantasiafest.com) we went to the Cheval Blanc (on Ontario just east of Berri on the north side) for a pint or 3. The standout was a blueberry beer, a wheat ale with a lovely blueberry aftertaste. No, sorry, it wasn't smurf coloured, although I would have loved that, but if you can imagine the flavour about 1 second after you swallow a mouthful of blueberry pie, that is the flavour you get.
The hot pepper beer had an intense red pepper flavour to it. they managed to capture a really interesting aspect of the pepper and to marry it to beer. The aftertaste was overly bitter and the next pint was a blueberry, once again.
