DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Draft at Whole Foods PM. Pours dark blackish brown with minimal head. Nose is bready malt. roasty, with artificial blueberry. Tastes roasty, with some bready, cacao, and Jolly Ranchery blueberry flavor. Interesting, but not a great beer.

Pailhead (5062) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle: As soon as a pop the cap, there is a huge dose of blueberry in the air. After pouring it in the glass, the aroma is all blueberry candy with a touch of chocolate. It may be artificial blueberry, but it still smells pretty good. It pours a dark brown with some orange transparency when held to the light. It has a three finger khaki head that fades to a thing film outlined by a thicker soapy ring. There is a good amount of thick soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate and cream. The finish has moderate blueberry with a touch of roast. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall...it’s not horrible, but it does start to wear on me fairly quickly.

chucklemation (563) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Pours a dark brown, almost a blueberry purple, with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet blueberry. Flavor, at first, is off-putting, but as the beer warmed up it got better. Has a tart blueberry flavor and a touch of bitterness. This isn’t all that bad.

taster @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear ruby brown color, tan rim head, dots of lace. Taste is a little malt and a lot of fermented blueberry and sweet bread. All turns more tart and bitter in the end. A novelty brew, for sure, with emphasis on blueberry, but sipping a 6 oz taster is okay with me.

Pours a dark brown. Taste and aroma is gross. It’s like bad blueberry syrup. Poured it down the sink after second taste.

BVery (6961) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle. Dark cola-colored pour with a smaller soapy white head. Aroma is blueberry and some sugars. Weird taste - hard to describe. Slightly sweet, I guess blueberry-like, but with an odd slightly sour finish.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle. Brown cola appearance with a small off white head. Semi sweet blueberry aroma and flavor. Somewhat muddled, earthy finish slightly takes away from the enjoyment. Soft carbonation with a sticky texture. A different type of sipping beer for sure.

superspak (2828) - Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2014
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 07/2014. Pours crystal clear nearly opaque dark brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of fresh blueberries, pie crust, toast, chocolate, light caramel, and light herbal hops. Very nice aromas with good balance of blueberries and dark/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of fresh blueberries, pie crust, toast, chocolate, light caramel, and herbal earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness and slight tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of blueberries, pie crust, toast, chocolate, light caramel, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of blueberries and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a solid malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Would have liked less bitterness to let the blueberries and malt sweetness have better presence. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good fruit beer. Good balance and robustness of blueberries and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

The first time I tried this, I had a Belgian tripel beforehand to dull the palate. This one tasted great as a follow-up. The next time I had one while completely sober, and it wasn’t nearly as good. Lesson learned: it’s a great middle-of-the-night beer, not a leadoff hitter.

Tap at Atwater in the Park. Dark brown. Some nice foam. Super blueberry nose. Very sweet, syrupy almost. Definitely tastes like blueberries. Novelty beer.
