Pours a hazy amber colour with very little head that disapates quickly. The aroma smells like fresh blueberry muffins, but since it lacks any other complexity there, I don’t think it deserves a perfect aroma rating. Initial taste sweet and blueberry’s swarm the palate but not fresh blueberries more artifical blueberry, so the enjoyability of that taste is not that great. I understand this is a fruit beer but looking for some more complexity. Light carbonation and light body. This one doesn’t do it for me.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2013 On tap at the Bocktown. both times old and new. New: better smell. Old: I can smell the blueberries from here, very attractive. Has an appearance of a reddish ale, almost like rose wine. Head is thin and creamy looking. When it comes to taste, is not quite as sweet as the aroma would indicate but it certainly is fruity. More on the tart side. Except for the tartness, this brew is pretty much like many other fruit beers out there. You get a blast of fruit, in this case blueberries. Has medium low carbonation. Many wheat beers are used for the base but this seems to use a pale lager. The finish is an industrial mild pale lager building bitterness that hangs for a while. IMHO Lancaster strawberry wheat is much more enjoyable.

Very strong smell of blueberry. A very light ale otherwise. One noted beer that could have used more depth.

12oz bottle. Pours an amber color, and the aroma is dominated by blueberries. Taste is mostly blueberry with slight malt and hop characteristics thrown in. Solid beer, nothing special but not bad.

Yeah, just another fruit beer. These always look good on paper but never really turn out the way you’d hope. This one is about the same. An amber ale with blueberry juice in it.

There is a nice dark amber color to it with a strong aroma of fruits and hopps. As you drink it you get an intence flavor of blueberry on the back of your palate. There is also some nice earthy flavors that stick around after drinking for a while.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2008 A very interesting beer in that it has a faint aroma and taste of blueberries. It is somewhat thicker bodied than average, but not by much. In general the beer has a nice sweet aftertaste to go along with a wheat taste. I can best liken it to blueberry pancakes. I’ve returned to BluePoint time and time again for this beer.

Re-rate: I had forgotten just how impressively blueberry this was.

Pours a light and clear pale amber with a slightly fizzy white head. The aroma is blueberry...duh, but I feel this blueberry aroma is more authentically blueberry then other blueberry ales. The flavour, too is authentic in its presentation of the fruit flavour. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied and a bit slick, but not syrupy. There is a bit a caramel malt in the flavour, too. This is nothing amazing, but I can’t imagine any blueberry ale could be.
