OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2009
From cask in Edinburgh. Low yellowish cream head with great lacework. Clear, dark copper colored body. Predominant blueberry aroma, not very sweet, quite fresh actually. A barely noticeable whiff of cream caramel/toffee in the background. Flavorwise the beer appears as a decent Bitter with a generous amount of blueberry (syrup?) added. A fine earthy bitterness is there to balance though. Oily in the mouth. Light to medium body strenght. Blueberries in the ending as well.

ladnewton (1811) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2009
Cask at the Wenlock on 17th October 2009. Amber with a frothy off white, fully diminishing foamhead. Fruity aromas; blueberry in the fore. Biscuit malt in main hit with a delicate berries aroma continuing. Delicate fruity finish on a slightly oily/clingy mouthfeel texture. Very well crafted novelty beer, with no overwhelm of sweetness sometimes associated therewith and, in the condition it was presented last night, deserved the 3.8/5

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2009
Cask in the Market Porter. Alround rating: Loads of blueberry essence, on the sweetside, butterscotch more than the usual diactyl, grassy bitterness in the finish leaves a bittersweet character.

Bullit (4460) - Burgos, SPAIN - OCT 3, 2009
