Wow, big disparity in ratings on this one. Guess I fall in the middle. Poured from a bottle. Clear golden color, slight head. VERY blueberry aroma, mix with hops on the taste. Refreshing but predictable.

The aroma of blueberries. Malty and bread with minimal blueberry flavor. Light bitterness that disappears directly into the aftertaste. The scent is good but otherwise the beer lousy. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Draught at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, Newark, NJ
Hazy golden color with compact head. Its a light Pale Ale, crisp, with light malt and cereals touch, and light fruity (blueberry) touch. I was skeptic, but luckily its not a fruit beer.

Bov (10123) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 21, 2014
from Mondial de la Bire 2013, Mulhouse - pours a pretty clear blond beer with a long lasting white foam; solid notes of blueberries, herbal; medium-bodied, light sweet and with some sourness, quite dry and very fruity (more blueberries) and light sticky finish

On tap, Renos, East Lansing. Leaves impression of a failed attempt to mask a day-after, light beer keg leftover with berry-flavored cough syrup.

Has a nice aroma. You can smell the blueberries. Has a light body and light blueberry flavoring-not overpowering. The blueberry flavor is definitely more along the lines of natural wild blueberries and not artificial flavoring. Overall it is a good blueberry

jgb9348 (4983) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Deep copper coloured body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of super pungent blueberry notes with a light sweetness and some light malt notes. Medium-bodied; Strong malt and fruit notes also show some sweetness from caster sugar and a bit of alcohol. Aftertaste shows some light malt and metallic bitterness, but mostly a super pungent blueberry flavour that seems fake, but is just very strong. Overall, a decent beer for sure, and if you like Blueberries, a very nice option indeed! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased by my dad from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 18-July-2014 for US$8,99/six pack on 18-July-2014 sampled on the train from New York to home in Washington on 20-July-2014 - Thanks Dad!

Transfer from BA review on 11-27-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance Pours a medium golden-amber color with a one finger white head that has a decent level of retention. The head holds strong for quite some time, but eventually fades to give a moderate level of lacing. Smell The aroma is huge of a blueberry smell. Mixed with this is a very light bready aroma. The blueberry smell is a little artificial in nature as it is a little to potent and sweet, but none the less, it is quite pleasant and nice. Taste A light bready and sweet blueberry flavor greet the tongue. These flavors are present throughout, but change slightly in intensity throughout the taste profile. The bready taste start out heaviest upfront (although not too heavy) but fade more and more as the taste advances. The blueberry on the other had starts out lighter and gets stronger as the taste advances. In the end a sweet and very blueberry flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on the rather thin side in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. The thinner body and higher carbonation create a rather crisp brew which is great for the sweet blueberry favors of the beer. Overall A fairly tasty blueberry ale, although it may be a little cloying. Overall one of the better blueberry beers I have tasted. While not a beer I would drink on session it is rather refreshing and worth a try.

Bulk_Carrier (2521) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass and had a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than twenty seconds (that was quick). Theres not much lacing. The smell had some blueberries but a grainy/wheaty thing going on. Interestingly thick but combined in a decent way. The taste was mainly sweet but had that grainy/wheaty thing going on in the flavor. On the palate, this one sat right at a medium on the body probably because of that grainy/wheatiness that gives a bit of a kick in the finish. Overall, hmmmm...weird beer. Im not exactly sure what to think of this beer. Probably not exactly one to revisit. Thanks anyways, Keith.
