2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. A generic pub ale with blueberry flavour. Amber with a faint lasting head. Moderate warm blueberry skin scent. Reminds me of a blueberry version of thier Aprikat. You can taste the grain and separate the grain from the fruit flavours. A bit of residual sweetness in the aftertaste. I guess patio season is here but I will stick to wheat beers.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a Bottle. Was worried it was going to have a sweet/fruity aftertaste (not my thing), but was pleasantly surprised at the subtlety. You can taste the blueberry, but in no way overpowering. Underneath is a pretty standard lager. I give them props for attempting different beers like this!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewery. A novelty, blueberry in the aroma and in the taste. Light mouthfeel but hard carbonation. Lacey light golden. Fresh.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thankfully this was bought for me to try. Clear gold, thin white cap. Well, there’s the blueberry... no shortage of it in the aroma. In fact, there is too much but then again if it was too faint I’d still complain. Seems a bit syrupy, good wheat, too much sweet fruit and not much else. Thick wheat and blueberry taste that comes across a bit syrupy but I guess that cannot be helped. It’s not that bad tasting and it is also not overly sweet. Mediumish bodied, finishes with a good, short lived tang and a faint but long wheat and sweet finish.
