omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Cloudy golden, small head. Fruity nose where vanilla and blueberry are extremely prominent. Sweet and fruity, medium bodied. An odd beer, bordering to the bizarre - like drinking blueberry pie. In theory this sounds awful, but when all comes around I can’t really resist being a bit secretely fond of this crazy stuff.

tmoreau (2380) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 19, 2010
On tap at the Four Queens brewpub bar, and poured with a hazed amber hue, modest, off white foam to the head, and light ribbons of lacing. The nose was light grain, vanilla, and then, blueberry following up. The flavor presented more sweetness to the blueberry, which was then mellowed by the vanilla. Nice, but not my style, although my girlfriend loved it.

Hazy yellow with tiny white head. Aroma was blueberries and cornflakes cereal. Taste was blueberries and spices (couldn’t pickout vanilla). Just ok.

Strykzone (4912) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2009
Had a sample of this at the brewpub. It had a nice blueberry aroma, if just a bit enhanced. No vanilla. Flavor was pretty much the same but with some clove. This beer is more blueberry than vanilla or wheat. Very fizzy.

sebletitje (6641) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2009
Sampler @ 4 Queens, Vegas. Pours golden cloudy, white head. Aroma wheat, blueberry, and wasn’t getting much vanilla. Taste, tart blueberry,wheat, light note of vanilla, overall mouthfeel was just too artificial.

jcwattsrugger (11079) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAR 11, 2009
on tap-pours a thin retaining white head and cloudy yellow/gold color. Aroma is key lime, pine, some wheat. Taste is tart lime, vanilla/blueberry, some wheat, perfumy. Interesting and enjoyed, but not something I’d get again.

Dogbrick (7973) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a hazy yellow color with a thin white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Mild honey and fruit in the nose. Light-bodied with a flavor similar to blueberry cough syrup. Some sweetness as well, but all around not very tasty. The finish is tart fruit and leaves some berry aftertaste. Overall I would not try this again.

12-1-07 tap.
my favorite of their brews without a doubt. Unique and somewhat interesting. Blueberries and vanilla fill the nose nicely. Sweet honey hints in there too. Cloudy hefe. color with average head. First taste causes the cheeks to pucker a bit, but after that the mouth becomes quite used to it and it is easy to drink. I can definitely taste blueberry muffins, but it isn’t overpowering. Aside from the blueberry flavor and vanilla aroma - it is kinda bland. Bubbly on the palate - nothing over the top. Pretty decent overall.

lb4lb (2531) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2007
1st beer I had at this place, and in my opinion their best. Pours an attractive cloudy orange. Smell is as expected of blueberries, vanilla and some wheat. Taste is similar, and actually not too thin like most of their other beers. Creamy blueberry flavor with strong clove flavor and a hefeweizen yeastiness. Still a bit thin overall, but compared to their others, it’s good.

unclemattie (4166) - Georgia, USA - NOV 1, 2007
20 oct 07, @ 4 Queens. Sample Tray. Slight hazy yellow. Heavy aroma of artificial blueberry flavoring. Big Blueberry. Flavor of blueberry (chemical) flavoring. Hints of vanilla hard candy. Finishes like a blueberry flavored cough syrup. GAG! Overall: A greasy, over-sprayed with PAM, blueberry muffin that you buy in bulk at COSTCO... BLAH!
