12oz bottle, shared by my brother. Pours a clear, orangish-amber color; off-white head with patchy lacing. Pleasant, fruity blueberry aroma. Average-to-lively carbonation. Medium mouthfeel: blueberry presence is relaxed and nicely integrated into a solid golden ale presence; fruity without being overly sugary or cloying. Medium, fresh blueberry finish.

bottle. bit cloudy gold with a foamy white head, strong smell of blueberries. nothing special in the taste. heavy on the blueberries. I like the occationally fruit beer, this just doesn’t stand out for me. have to try again on a warm summer afternoon. might be perfect then.

Ok, this surprised me. I do not like fruity beers, but this one is actually quite drinkable. The nose is all blueberry, but not the pseudo blueberry scent that so many fruit beers give off, this scent is definitely the real deal. It pours a gently blued golden color with a lightly laced head that, yes, has distinctive bluing to it. The flavor is of a soft wheat lager with a nicely distinct, yet not overpowering, blueberry taste. I would not get this again, myself, but if you like fruit beers, I must say this is one of the best.

On tap. It pours like a normal amber ale. But the smell of blueberry is overpowering and takes over the experience. I actually like fruitiness in beer when done right, this ain’t it. Tastes like cough syrup.

Fantastic fruity aroma, crystal clear amber color with little head. Blueberry shines through. Very light silky feel. Excellent thirst quencher for a hot day. Give this one a try.

It’s good. The smell as it comes out of the tap is heaven. If it was possible to marry a smell then I would marry this smell and never cheat on it with any other smell.

Bottle from Capone’s. I love this aroma, freshly picked blueberries fresh with that mild spicy aroma, and some hops and citric notes. The color is purplish gold color with fizzy pinkish head. The palate is on the light side, very lively, with a huge blueberry flavor coupled with pale malt and hopcitrus. However, the taste is a bit of a letdown after experiencing the huge, fresh blueberry aroma. As a side bonus, I had huge blueberry hop burps for 2 hours after quaffing this one!

Strong smell of blueberries. The clear orange ale has a sweet, blueberry taste with a light head. WOrth a try

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2008 Poured clear orange with medium off-white head (faintly blue). Quickly dissipating, with little lacing. Strong aroma of sweet blueberries. Taste of blueberries, candy sugar and grains. It kind of tastes like duncan hines blueberry muffins. Thin texture. Not too bad, once in a while.
