COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light fruit ale, made with Maine wild blueberries. As opposed to many of the sweeter fruit beers on the market, our addition of fresh Maine wild blueberries in this light ale yields a subtle blueberry aroma, without the sweet aftertaste. A mixture of the following Mutton malts, pale, crystal, and Munich, are combined with wheat to give this ale its lighter body, and we only use minimal amounts of Target and Willamette hops.

Draft at Sugars. Clear copper pour with a fizzy head that quickly disappears. Does indeed have the tiny Maine blueberry flavors (as opposed to say the larger New Jersey variety.) Thankfully not too sweet. Still feels like blueberry flavor added to an otherwise nondescript albeit crisp ale.

For a fruit flavored ale, I was very disapppointed, The blueberry aroma is definitely there, but the blueberry taste, tastes of crappy kids cereal. The mouthfeel of this beer wasn’t right in my opinion either.

Bottle. Blueberry forward, touch of muddled earth. Dough. Decent. More blueberry than expected.

Light blueberry aroma. Clear orange color with a small white head. Not too sweet but lots of blueberry flavor.

Served in Bar Harbor on draft with a handful of real blueberries floating in it. Kind of sweet, but not a bad blueberry essence on top of real beer flavor. Not sure how much is from the blueberries versus the beer.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Fruity blueberry, with a wheaty base and a dry finish. Not bad.

Great! Tried sweetwater blue and this is very comparable. This has more of a brewed beer flavor.

12oz bottle. Thin light khaki head. Nice clear dark red color. Little lace. This is actually a pretty decent blueberry ale - a pleasant surprise, because I tried the ginger from these guys and was not impressed at all. Nice lighter smooth carbonation, light body, more dry finish. Pretty authentic-tasting blueberry fruit flavor. Nice taste for a fruit beer - not too sweet, good bit of fruity tartness. Really well-done fruit beer - subtle enough to be tolerable for non-fruit beer drinkers. I will be suggesting this to the fruit fans I encounter. Lightly tart blueberry aroma lasts a bit in the aftertaste.

The beer itself is very light in mouthfeel and seems low in alcohol content as well. It is a crisp, refreshing beer with a slightly biscuity flavor from the lighter malts and some serious sweetness that stems from the fruit... highly drinkable and different!

Light, perhaps a bit malty with a touch of fruit, but not really sweet. Could really use a crisper finish, but the combination of blueberry and citrus zest is still nice.
