2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The first time I have actualy seen blueberrys come out of a tap. Light slightly hopped beer with a lot of blueberry kick. Very sweet and berry like, not at all bad, but its hard to consider it a beer. I have to say I enjoyed it, but its not what I want when I want a beer (which I almost always want.)

This has to be the coolest blueberry ale Iíve had - it comes with fresh Maine blueberries in the glass! Otherwise its a fairly standard blueberry ale, though having actual fruit in the beer gives it a more pronounced fruit flavor than most bottled examples. A good deal if fruit beers are your thing.

Itís a nice touch with the big dollop of blueberries in the glass, some floating and some sitting on the bottom like rabbit droppings. Biting into a few of the blueberries does provide a nice flavor, but then weíre not talking about beer but fruit in syrup. The beer, I was told, was the same general beer they make when they add other flavorings to the process (e.g., watermelon)--nothing interesting there. Too much carbonation, I thought. Chunky palate (how many times do you get to say that?)!

Awesome blueberry aroma, spice, and a bit of hops. Looks horrible with pale urine color and blueberries floating/sinking in the glass. Like a deer took a crap in my beer. Watery palate and low carb. Could taste some blueberry, though donít know if itís brewed with berries or theyíre added at the pour. Weak overall beer taste. Unique beer with floaters, though nothing to write home about.

This is a really cool beer. When I first tried it, I thought it was a gimmick, or a marketing ploy, but I was really surprised by the taste. Smooth and mellow, with just a slight taste of berries. It looks cool because they actually service it with a few blueberries in the pint glass.

Not a fruit beer fan in general. But this is a pretty interesting brew. Very controlled hoppiness and floating blueberries. Can you ask for anything more?

Truly part of the Fenway experience. Not a big fan of lambics or fruit beers but this one has a great flavor.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2006 Draught @ Fenway: A very nice light, summer beer. The aroma is that of blueberries, no doubt helped by the addition of some blueberries to the beer. The color is a slightly darker, golden color. There is a decent amount of lacing. The beer has amedium to lighter body. Some wheat in there, i think. Actually not too much blueberry taste, except when you chew on a couple of them. Itís always on my list to drink when I go to Fenway Park (across the street!) Adding of the blueberries makes for an interesting taste. A very different presentation, but actually very good!
