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

McWorta (558) - 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 don’t associate with a traditional "beer-smell". No hoppy bitterness nor a malty sweetness. The blueberry’s 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.

wimpyjoe (3561) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle. As you’d expect it has a fine blueberry aroma to savour. There’s plenty of the fruit in its taste too. Has a golden body but no head.

jjsint (657) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
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.

dogbomb (930) - ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
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.

berkshirejohn (4402) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2013
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Slightly hazy amber with a thin white head; blueberry aroma with some grain in the background; fresh fruity blueberry flavour but rather sweet, and more like a cordial than fresh fruit; the drier to finish with some tarter, lasting, fruit. Interesting and refreshing.

Cask at JDW Charlie Hall; clear pale yellow pour with soapy white head, fruity berry aroma, some berry tartness in the taste with a bitter finish.
