2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thin, somewhat artificial smelling (like a Betty Crocker Blueberry muffin) and just generally lacking. It’s not horrible but it certainly could be done better. At least it wasn’t overly sweet and syrupy -- it was drinkable, unlike many other cheap-ass artificial fruit beers I’ve had before. Disappointing. Not much else to say about this one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy amber color as the aromas of fruits tickle your nose as well as wheat. Has a smooth fruity taste that you could compare to fruity pebbles. Perhaps it’s not the best fruit beer on the market, but it was still good and very drinkable.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
3/15/11. 12oz bottle courtesy cbfobes. Hazy purple pour like blueberry juice poured into OJ with a small purplish head that fades fast. Very light aroma of fruit and soft wheat with a similarly light flavor of almost nothing. This is nothing... with a dash of blueberry. Weird.

On tap at Old Fashioned in Madison, pours a hazy dark amber with a nice white head, nose is of sweet malt and a hint of blueberry, flavor has a some funk mixed in with a processed blueberry finish, I really didn’t enjoy this all that much.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a nice dark amber with light head that faded to lace fairly quickly. A slighly sweet aroma with a malty base and berry-like surroundings. Taste started out as mainly malt and then finished with an interesting light berry and hop interlude. Mouth feel was decent. Overall a nice brew with just the right amount of blueberry - you can taste it but it does not overwhelm. Definitely a possible repeat.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wellllll, gosh, not quite sure what to say. On one hand, the aroma and flavor have pretty decent true blueberry characteristics and is not cloyingly sweet. On the other hand it’s a little thin and shallow in all the other beer qualities. Poured with a nice fine light tan to off white head that mostly faded and no lace. Color is a clear medium amber. Can smell the blueberry as soon as bottle is cracked. Other than that some malt. Flavor’s about the same. Body is thin and carbonation is ok. Finish is blueberry ok. Not really a session for me, but maybe for someone.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Amber peach color, pretty transparent. Respectable average head. Sweet blueberry aroma. A touch of bitterness upfront leads to a solid sweet blueberry taste. The mild amber malt tones give it a touch of depth, but overall a pretty straightforward venture. Nothing to write home about and nothing to whine about, it is what it is.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thin head of varying sized bubbles. Light blueberry aroma with some roasted grains and dirty diapers. Hmmm, not what I would want in an aroma. Color is a orangish brown. More blueberry flavor along with some light roasted grains and an abundance of sweetness. Sickly sweet. Finishes sweet and sticky with lingering fruityness. Not a very good brew.

Yuck. Ok that is a bit strong, but close. As far as I can tell, a blueberry beer just has to have some sweetness. This tastes like what carbonated, unsweetened water tastes like. I tend to like Blueberry ales and so was a bit surprised by this.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from three cellars (franklin, wi). Part of my girlfriend’s haul of singles. Pours a dark hazed amber with moderate tannish head that dissipates to a decent amount and laces a bit. Aromas are straight blueberry muffins. Light cakey sweetness mixed with blueberries. Initial is a lot lighter in the blueberry department, subtle blueberry that sticks to the aftertaste, tannins, light grainy sweet malty sweetness. Not a lot of bitterness, but a touch of tartness on the blueberry. A display of the fruit (which is natural and not overbearing), rather than the beer. Decent. Wins points for no artificial sugary sweetness but loses them for unassertive malt and a touch of watery feel.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy, sickly copper with a light yellowish tan head. The smell reminds me of blueberry pancakes with some dandelions. The taste is like eating raw grain with just a hint of blueberry flavor. There is a toasted bread character that is kind of pleasing, but it doesn’t match well with the extra carbonation and overall super dry taste. It’s ok, but barely even a fruit beer.
