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.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a small, off-white head. Aroma of moderately sweet malts and light blueberries. Somewhat sweet malt backbone with light blueberry flavors. A little bland but easy drinking.

12oz Bottle. Appearance is amber color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is subdued with fruit, blueberries, and wheat. Taste is similar with blueberries right up front with nice beer malts backing it up with flavors of orange and wheat. Palate is medium bodied, slick texture, average carbonation, and a mod finish.

This is one of the few blueberry beers out there that sort of tastes like beer. Even the color looks the part. A deep amber color with very little to no head. The smell is nearly exact to the taste. Strong fruity and blueberry aromas let you know exactly what you are getting into. With most fruity or hybrid beers, the distinctive taste seems to always be towards the end. Bar Harbor Blueberry Ale though skips all the foreplay and jumps right at you with the blueberry flavor with a subtle aftertaste of a mild ale.

22oz bomber bottle, purchased from Liquor Locker, Southwest Harbor (I think), consumed in April 2010. Amber colour. Relatively restrained blueberry aroma. Also quite subtle on the palate. Dry and fairly tart. Not one of those synthetic, sweet, fruit bombs that fruit beers can be. All the better for that.

12 ounce bottle, best before January 2013. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear amber color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention is decent, and thereís a good amount of lacing. The aroma is mostly sweet, it smells like blueberries and sweet malt. The brew tastes like sweet and kinda tart blueberries and grainy malt, but thereís also a slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit slick and itís also refreshing. I liked this brew, Iíd try it again. I think itís worth trying if youíve never had it before.

My wife and I have had many of these over the years when visiting Maine. A truly nostalgic beer. The beer is a light sunset orange hue, and appears clear. The head is less than a finger thick, and fades pretty rapidly, leaving minimal lacing. The aroma is nostalgic indeed, and takes me back to Acadia National Park, where I drank a bunch of this brew. Blueberry juice and a simple ale. The flavor is pretty basic. Blueberry juice and and some type of sweetener in a base ale. Itís pretty good, though I tend to be a bit disgruntled when I see the words "natural flavors". I much prefer 100% fresh fruit to any additives or substitutes. The feel is medium/thin in body, with a growing sweetness as I make my way through the pint glass. Overall, a fun beer and worth trying, though I much prefer my fruit beers to either be sour/wild.

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.
