3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at the brewpub. Looks solid; a mostly transparent golden orange with thin white lacing. Smells of blueberries and mild hops. Tastes like it smells with a fairly smooth medium-bodied mouthfeel. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Dark Horse. Cloudy amber-orange pour with a smal film of head. Aroma is blueberry pancakes with some light generic malt. Blueberry dominates the taste too but it’s really good. Smooth, light sweetness, goes down really easy. Medium body. Yum.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap: The aroma consists of light-moderate blueberry muffin, citrus, and light grapefruit. It’s a transparent amber with a two finger off-white head that eventually settles to a thick film. There is a good amount of soapy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus. There’s some light blueberry that lingers throughout. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit with a touch of florals and lemon. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, the blueberry is pretty subtle and works really well in a Pale Ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster on tap at GTMW. Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good dots of lace. Awesome nose. Smells like blueberry muffins. Medium plus body. Good more full mouthfeel. Smooth, crisp, kind of lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light tart, kind of tangy, light bitter. Pretty imperessive, tasty blueberry pale ale. Well-done stuff, in the same way that Reign in Blood was. Satisfying amount of earthy kind of piney hop to it, some citrus.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap: Hazy, off-balance amber with a slightly darker than beige head that sits on top. Aroma is like concentrated, dense blueberry syrup. Artificial in nature but still charming & sweet. Also getting strong notes of red licorice candy. Taste has brighter notes of zesty, bready yeast with moderate blueberry syrup & a back-end filled with earthy hop bitterness. Finishes with a sharp astringency & a lingering, mildly abrasive sweetness from the blueberry. All in all, this one is just on the brink of being a good beer... The unwanted astringency & artificially sweet finish are holding it back.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Near perfect marriage of fruit and beer...the blueberry flavor - while very apparent - was very well integrated and balanced with the malt and hops. So many ’blueberry’ flavors are faked, but this is the real deal. Outstanding.
