What the hell? There were actual whole blueberries in this beer? Do they not know how to incorporate the flavor of blueberries into their beer (by mashing or juicing perhaps?) It's like ordering an oatmeal stout only to find oats floating in it. Beyond that it was easy to drink and noticably sweet.

gimmicky beer, light ale with floating blueberries. very sweet and berry-like. little ion the way of beer flavors. bestr bert would be to boil this down and serve with pancakes.

Since i don't like blueberries to begin with, this was a poor choice for me to have. The thing that turned me off most about this beer is the real blueberries floating (well, sinking) in it. it reminded me of that Orbit soda from a few years back.

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 I’ve 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.

It’s 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 we’re 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 don’t know if it’s brewed with berries or they’re 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.
