UPDATED: OCT 30, 2008 Nice Golden Ale with the hint of Blueberry flavor. It is on tap year-round and is served with fresh blueberries in the glass. Pours Golden and has a slight Blueberry aroma. Nice smooth Beer accented by Blueberries that makes for an enjoyable drink.

On tap at the brewery- Slight hazy dull gold pour with small blue berries. Medium sudsy head. Light aroma of blue berries. Some hops and light malt body. The wife liked it, I thought it was Ok.

7 oz sample. Slightly cloudy pour with medium frothy head. Aroma of, well, blueberries and wheat. Thin finish. Typical mediocre fruit beer.

It really does look and taste like the golden ale with blueberries. I asked a bartender if it was, and he tried to convince me it was its own brewed beer. Either way, it has the eye candy novelty that girls and not your average beer drinker likes. Seems very popular with the locals, and most likely a permanant staple of the pub. Blueberry beer and blueberries in general seem to be very popular in RI. Personally i don’t really mind it at all. I could definitely drink a pint of this while just playing pool.

The same transparent gold look of the Golden Ale, but either the blueberry extract or real blueberries used as a garnish helped promote a thick white head. Aroma is heavy on the blueberry. Flavor was delicious, the mix of blueberries and grains lend a taste of blueberry pancakes. Finish is watery but also a bit spicy. Novelty beer but drinkable.

It must be blueberry season in New England; in one form or another they’re on every menu I’ve seen so far. I’ve got to give a 5 for appearance not for the pale, cloudy yellow beer, but for the (formerly) dried blueberries in the glass giving off clouds of blue swirling in the beer. Aroma of (surprise!) blueberry with some sweet maltiness. Flavor has some sweet, tangy maltiness and a hint of hops, but this is dominated by blueberry. These types of beers usually turn out gross, but I truly enjoyed this. The fruitiness melds with the beer quite well. Nice job!

I guess I like fruit beers better than most folks. Served in a pounder with some small wild blueberries added to the glass, this beer is a slightly hazy gold with a white head. Blueberries were present in both the aroma and flavor, but I didn’t find them overpowering as in some other blueberry ales that I have had. Maybe a tad thin, but otherwise a nice change of pace for the summer and very quaffable.

Yuck. Blueberry beer. Not a subtle fruity flavor. A overpoweringly fruity looking (because they dump in blueberries) and blueberry-smelling and blueberry tasting thing.

Clear light gold with a big white head. They serve this with a dozen or so blueberries thrown in the shaker glass, and the berries continually rise and fall. Somehow it’s entertaining, moreso for those of us with a few under the belt prior. Anyway, sweet blueberry nose and flavor, lightly grainy. Light body, pretty watery. Amusing beer aimed at females, I suspect.
