Bottle: Cloudy...orange-amber with a solid, cream head. Blueberry malt aroma. Flavour is very natural, real blueberry. Has the inherent bitterness of fresh blueberry. I don’t particularly care for blueberries, but this was pretty good.

Bottle. Blueberry malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet blueberry malt and mildly bitter herbal flavor. Very nice fruit beer.

Tap at Back Road Fall Fest. Sweet candy-like blueberry aroma. Amber with a small beige head. Natural blueberry flavor with a light grassy finish. Light body. I’ve had so many blueberry beers that taste like artificial raspberry, and was impressed that this beer captured the natural flavor.

Hazy amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma is herbal and grassy with blueberry and malt. Taste of blueberry, malt and herbal notes.

Onslow (1210) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Deep orange amber brew with off white head. Aroma of blueberry pie filling - yum. Taste is is berry-forward with blueberry tartness and tang from the start of the swallow through to the dry finish. While it smells like blueberry pie the taste is crisp, tart, and not all that sweet - which is good. Excellent brew.

Bottle @ home- bonus from some generous trader that I don’t remember. I really enjoy blueberry beers, so thanks! Caramel orange, cloudy appearance with a big, carbonated, fluffy, cream colored head. Mild to moderate blueberry, somewhat spicy, grassy hops, light malty aroma. Somewhat sour puckering, moderate blueberry, light bodied fruit beer. Spicy, mild blueberry, mildly sour aftertaste. Not bad, just a little surprised by the fruit sourness.

bottle as an extra in a recent trade poured a dark golden in color with a thin covering of white foam. aroma has real blueberry, light sweetness, and a good malted mix. mouth feel is light but not watery and has average carbonation. flavor brings on more malted character, blueberry is there but not dominant and has a slight bit of tartness. there is a bit of a spice and perhaps some peppery hits and this is really a fruited beer and not a sweet berry soft drink.

sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Aroma is fresh baked blueberry muffins. Appearance was dark orange. I was expecting a brew with a light blue tint to it. Taste is much more hoppy then the style calls for. The blueberry taste was hidden in the hops. should have used Saaz hops or another hop with low Alpha Acid. Little malt, palate is lingering, not crisp, and very bold. Overall, okay, but not worth $13 a 6 pack. Save your money and buy a 6 pack of bar harbor blueberry ale..

Righty-O, going into this expecting a Blabaer clone, more or less. Let’s see if it meets or exceeds these expectations. The beer pours a slightly cloudy medium amber color, and maybe it’s just my eyes playing tricks on me, but I’m seeing bluish/purplish hues in there. One-finger off-white head sits atop it, and the lacing is not shabby. The aroma is interesting. Lots of blueberries, like blueberry pancakes, with a peppery/spicy note and some caramel malt evident. The flavor is all right. You can’t miss the blueberries here, but they’re not overdone. There’s a spiced note to it - ginger maybe - along with black pepper and a muffin-like malt character. This is actually not bad. Medium-light bodied with average carbonation. An above average fruit beer overall. Can’t do too much hating on this one.

Served from bottle into a Samuel Smith imperial pint. Poured a clear red-orange with a one finger off-white head that subsides to minimal. Also had a few floaties present in the bottom as well. Maintained decent lacing throughout. The aroma was comprised of malt, wheat, and blueberry muffin!? Hell yes! The flavor was of malt, blueberry, bread, with a wheat followthrough. The blueberry muffin flavor was an aftertaste after swallowing. Definitely liked this aftertaste. It was light on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a very nice extra to get ahold of. The blueberry muffin aroma and aftertaste knocked this one up a notch for me. However, the flavors present were kind of light, but the ones that were there were quite nice however.
