COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a golden beer with a distinct blueberry aroma and a subtle fruity flavor. The low hop character and blueberry flavor make for a very refreshing brew.

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 donít 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 theyíre on every menu Iíve seen so far. Iíve 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 didnít 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 itís 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.

On tap at the Coddington Brew Pub. They served this one with a bunch of real blueberries in it. The blueberries took turns floating to the top and then sinking to the bottom. They did this the entire time I had the beer (I wonder what made them do that). I felt like I just took a bong hit and drawn into staring at a lava lamp (I couldnít take my eyes off of their never ending floating and sinking). I would have rated the apperance low, bu the blueberries caused me to raise it a few points. Poured a light to medium golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of tart blueberries and pretty much like a blueberry muffin. Tastes of lighter blueberries. Thinner body.
