16 oz draught at the Fenway location. Dark yellow pour with a tiny fizzy head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of bread and blueberries. Watery body with a sugary taste of dark berries and bread. Not too bad considering I am not a fan of fruit beers.

Draft at the Fenway Brewpub - Poured a light yellow in color with a medium white (except for the blueberry stain) head. Blueberries were frozen and kept floating up and down the glass ans they thawed... nice visual. Aroma was overpoweringly blueberry with a hint of hops in the background. Flavor is also pretty blueberry, but there is an underlying flavor of beer with plenty of hops. Very interesting... not sure that I would have again, but I enjoyed this one!

BelgianBeerGal (3140) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Draught at the Fenway location. Just a very average pale ale that has blueberries tossed in it. The natural flavouring good better over time as the blueberries soaked in, but the beer got rather onerous. Middle of the road all things considered but an interesting idea. Start the whole process with a better ale base and you’ve got yourself a big winner here.

On tap at brew put. Took two visits to get up the courage to try this one. It is not just a sweet fruit beer. It is a great drinkable light beer. Is is a lager? And the big blueberries are just an added treat.

This is a very good blueberry ale that you can only get in Boston (at least I think so, I haven’t seen it anywhere else). Everytime I go to Boston I make sure I stop here to get a glass of this. It has a good strong ale taste, but the blueberry’s they put in it give it a nice sweet balance. Because of the carbonation in it, the blueberries are always floating to the top and then to the bottom. I love this beer.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2008
Tap at Fenway. Pours a wierd violet tinged golden with a thin head that diminishes- they threw in some blueberries into the glass. Aroma is like a fesh baked blueberry muffin at first, but then it goes south- tons of solvent and fruity high ferm temp esters. Flavor is artificial like, crackery and reminded me of some fake cereal like frankenberry or fruit loops. Harsh astringent and solventy finish.

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2008
On tap: Light golden in color with very little head and a few blueberries floating in the glass. The nose is crisp and gives off scents of crisp blueberry. The blueberry is less noticable in the mouth but still aparent. This is a crisp and refreshing beer that would be quite easy to enjoy during the summer.

Pint at Boston Beer Works Logan Airport Terminal C. I’ve been excited to have this beer since I saw it on the American beer documentary years ago. Pours gold orange with a tan head that gets purple from the blueberries taht float in the glass. Nose is very nice. Tastes a bit like a pale ale with blueberries added not really much going on here but the taste and overall experience is stellar and very unique.

4/20/2008: Beer Works Blueberry Ale tastes like a farily generic beer with some suble bluebeery flavor. It is quite light (light amber color and light body) and average at best. The only saving grace is that it is not overly sweet and the blueberry tastes somewhat authentic (floral quality) rather than a completely artificial blueberry syrup quality. It also has a mineral quality in the finish and aftertaste. For the record, I am not against fruit beers in anyway, but this one does nothing for me.

Draught at at Beer Works (Fenway) in Boston, MA. Rating #52 for this beer...
