A Sim rate (12oz bottle from a deli in Brooklyn; sipped in Williamsburg park with a view over Manhattan at sunset): Sweet blueberry with too much of a beery maltiness. It looks like fizzy beer, or even soda. Nothing appetizing about the appearance. No head and not a chance of lacing. Flavour is very blueberry; synthetically so in a fizzy soda kind of way. Slight malt. It was enjoyable, but I wouldn’t call it quality beer. Sinkable though.

Bottle; poured a copper color with not much off white head. Aroma was a very strong blueberry aroma; good aroma. Flavor wasn’t quite as good as the aroma, but it did taste like blueberries. Easy drinking, palate was pretty good. All in all, a good drinkable beer.

nicely done blueberry ale. i happen to like fruit beers unlike many people on here. i dont think you should compare a beer like this to beers like lambics or strong beers with fruit used. they are 2 completely different animals. no, this isnt as complex as those...but its a nice drinkable ale with enough blueberry flavor to bring to mind blueberry pancakes or muffins. maybe thats not what you want in a beer...i enjoy it.

Slipstream (2214) - USA - AUG 27, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2007 A nice dark red-copper color and a fresh, yeasty aroma with a sweet malty tone. It has a light, fizzy feel, and a mild grainy taste with blueberry notes. The fruit flavor is pretty light -a little too light. This is a refreshing, but unexciting, fruit beer.

A nice summery drink. Low alcohol keeps it easy to drink while the blueberries makes it refreshing. They say blueberries help you keep a strong memory, so I guess drinking this ale is a wash.

McGarnigle (578) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Bottle with "purchase before" date of October (presumably 2007). Waft of blueberry aroma while puring, although it doesn’t seem particularly strong once in the glass. Reddish tinged color (not blue); head fades quickly. Light bodied and moderately fizzy. The taste reminds me of blueberry seltzer water or maybe diet blueberry soda (if there is such a thing). More tart than sweet, but not a whole lot of either. Only a little bit of beer-ness underneath. The upside is that it is easy drinking for the summer.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2009 12 oz bottle. Pours a light reddish body. Aroma is great - blueberries of course. Taste is light and refreshing.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2007 It had very soft carbonation, and tasted like blueberries!! Very enjoyable.

MrBunn (2560) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle. Copper orange body with a pretty nice head that is mostly white, but seems to have a purple color to it every now and again. Aromas are overwhelmingly blueberry. Fairly nasty, really... Initial thoughts are that the blueberries do not mesh well with the malts... they are both off doing their own thing and they pull the palate in opposite directions. As it warms a little I’m beginning to like it more... (my hand was pretty close to the drain earlier), but I’m still not giving out any awards. Like many of the fruit mixes I’ve had, the beer and the fruit don’t seem to like to be together... instead it is more of a gimmick to sell a few brews and maybe someone out there will fall in love and buy a case, but not this guy.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 27, 2007
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.
