3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Blueberry and caramel malt aroma. Medium brown with moderate head and lacing. Slightly sour dark malt and light blueberry flavor - really no sweetness at all. Mild hops finish. Not bad but probably wonít really please either those who like a sweet fruity beer or those who like stronger beers.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Three up, three down? Am I going to pour out a third bomber of Bar Harbor fruit ale? Beautiful clear dark amber body with good haziness and a firm head. Actually leaves some lacing, consisted with haze and with the more positive mouthfeel. Nose of malts and blueberry fruit. Taste of malts and blueberries, with a mildly bitter finish. But still, in the end, nasty; strong flaor of spoiled fruit. Down the drain it goes,

This has a great natural blueberry flavor that is not perfumed up. It actually fits nicely with the beer notes that suround it! I hear on tap i is great served with Bkueberries!

1.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Could be better. A reddy amber color with minimal head. Interesting blueberry aromas dominate the nose, along with a strange herbal component that seemed chemicalish. Flavor had only the barest hint of blueberry - rather was a very ordinary, if now below-average, amber ale. Light maltiness, a touch of green hops and empty finish. Bleh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a one-finger white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving no lace. Clear amber color. Blueberry nose. Good carbonation and light bodied. Starts balanced with good blueberry flavor, some sweetness but donít look for blueberry pie sweetness, this is a good blueberry ale. $4.50 for a 22oz bottle from Tullyís Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz twist off brown bottle. Claims to be americaís original blueberry ale. Pours like any other pale yellow american beer. It has the appearance of lots of carbonation but is less than average carbonation once tasted. Does have a slight smell of berries. On the outset, taste is slightly better with a hint of blueberry. Not sweet by any standard. Seems a bit surly and it is a bit bitter on the back of the throat. Finish lingers for a while . Not impressed. Of the three fruit beers Iíve tried tonight; this, oxford raspberry and leinieís berry. This is the least of the three. Lancaster strawberry wheat is miles ahead of this.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark red body with a finger of head. Smells ofblueberries more than anything. Tastes like blueberry, with some malt, with a little roast and bitterness on the finish. On the lighter side of medium-bodied. Somewhat similar to Sea Dogís version. Not the best blueberry ale Iíve had, but itís okay.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle - Pours clear and light amber in color with a thin head. It has a moderately strong aroma of malt and blueberry. It tastes like a light, thin, mediocre amber ale with blueberries added. Itís drinkable, but definitely not impressive.
