Strongly flavoured with blueberry, very enjoyable and easy to drink.

Parmenion777 (109) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2016 Pours a clear pale gold with a loose white head that quickly became a scummy film. A distinct blueberry aroma, slightly floral. A sweet blueberry bubblegum taste. A bit watery and not much in the finish.

One of my favourites, a wonderfully scented balance of bitter/sweet. I generally love blueberries, but they complement this uncomplicated bitter perfectly, and donít overpower the hops aromas.

Pours with a small. Silky head that quickly dissipated. Taste Palma violets and lavender and blueberry bubblegum odd beer with a thin body not one I will be buying again

Loving flavoured Beer, how could I turn down my favourite flavour? Morrisonís, bottled. I was disappointed. The best and defining staple of this ale is itís Authentic Aroma of Fresh Blueberries, fillís the room, it could replace my Air fresheners, itís gorgeous. It pours a plain, watery , Larger of pretty much no worthwhile merit. in the mouth it is watery, but fresh and oddly oily, perhaps hinting at something artificial? not unpleasant. Itís taste is of a very bland, basic bitter, that borderís on Soda for itís carbonation, sweet and tasteless for the ale, but it does have a small hit of blueberry, mostly in the finish, but only very small and quickly phased out, not impressed.

Clear yellow. Very floral and slightly herbal aroma. Flavour is sweet. Bit like chewing gum.

McWorta (1339) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 13, 2014
Shows a light yeast hazed pale golden colour with a fine frothy white head. On the nose the blueberry clearly dominates with hints of blackcurrant and blackberry with a faint floral hop note. A brief fizz offers a soft slick textured medium bodied beer with flavours of blueberry and blackberry. Rather too sweet even artifical, with a long chewy finish. Interesting idea though.

zwartjesbier (28) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2013
From bottle. Sweet aroma that I donít associate with a traditional "beer-smell". No hoppy bitterness nor a malty sweetness. The blueberryís are dominant on the nose. A fresh sweetness. Pours a clear pale gold with a minimal head that quickly dissapears. Taste is refreshing sweet with a crispy finish.

Bottle. As youíd expect it has a fine blueberry aroma to savour. Thereís plenty of the fruit in its taste too. Has a golden body but no head.

Pale golden almost straw colour. Fruit aroma, obviously but also: leather? Paint? Something different. Taste: fruit is superimposed on rather than blended with traditional ale taste. Still pleasant if a tiny bit saccharin. Good enough beer but not spectac. Full marks for trying.

Cask. Gold with a slight haze and a white speckled head. Smells of blueberries. And bread. Blueberry muffins!!! In the mouth, there's a solid bitter body with maltiness and then you've got the blueberry muffins making an appearance again. Rather moreish, if a little sweet. Mmmm.
