Thereís nothing blue about it. Smells like vomit. I donít like it. Bottle from Woodyís Smokes and Brews, Nashville.

Bomber from Oak Tree. Pours light amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma is a sort of bready/yeasty (not spicey) blueberry. Itís pretty foamy. Flavor? Wheat. Blueberry? not that much. Still, it sort of works. Blueberry bitter sort of builds. Main point: On a summer evening itís definitely drinkable. But I canít hardly wait for the impy stout.

BBB63 (5750) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Bomber bottle and served in standard pint glass: Clean light amber hue with a lasting frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of wet grains, soapy, some fruit (but hell it does not smell a lot like blueberries) and wheat. The taste has a brief moment of fruity acidity but there is an under developed pale maltiness, lasting sugary tones and veggie character that ruins it. The mouth feel is equally bland and just sort of there. What a waste of money, I knew better but could not resist the urge in the hopes of something better. I would not have guessed this to be a blueberry beer if not on the label. Even some crappy ales out there taste drinkable because the fruit character helped to mask to crappy ale hidden beneath, this can not even pull that off. Got borderline offensive during the second glass and eventual drain pour.

Deep amber pour hazy ... light white head light lacing .... light aroma of blueberry and wheat and some sweet malts ..... sweet sugary taste with light blueberry and wheat the sugar kills most of the flavor could barely detect any blueberry ...... sweet malt bomb here not a good brew shame aroma wasnít half bad

obguthr (3453) - Lynchburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Weak aroma of stale malt. Hazy orange, headless. Tart malt flavor with a nondescript berry tang. Tastes exceedingly cheap with low grade ingredients. There are blueberries on the label, but none on the palate. Itís actually an embarassment to charge the prices Iíve seen for this. Kinda Blue? Kinda Eww.

alobar (2623) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Fuzzy white head. Pours a pinkish copper color with next to no aroma. Some grain and thatís about it. Flavor lacks blueberry, but is sweet with some grain. Not one Iíd want too many of.

drfabulous (3652) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Draught at Yia Yiaís in Lincoln. I guess I was expecting more. Pale ale like beer with some taste of blueberry. Other than that, nothing to striking or impressive. Somewhat refreshing for a hot day.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Draught at TJís: Aroma of wheat, artificial blueberry, malt, and some hops. Poured amber/orange in color with a medium-sized, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished a lot but still lasted throughout. Slightly hazy. Sparkling. Very good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of wheat, yeast, malt, and barely a hint of blueberry. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Sweet wheat and malt finish. Lots of wheat, not too much else.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Bomber from Caponeís. Pours deep coppery with ruby pink highlights and 2 fingers of white clingy head. Nose is caramel malt, mild blueberry, some fainy earthy notes. Tastes malty, with mild bluberry, mild hops, somewhat cloying and sweet, and not terribly complex. OK, but just OK.

OBF í10. One of the best beers I have ever smelled. Sounds weird but seriously oh yum. Unfortunately the taste doesnít quite live up to it. Hints of blue berry fruityness, but nothing really forward. A sweet golden.
