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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap at One Eyed Bettys, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought subtle blueberry, hints of orange, herbal, spicy notes into a bit of caramel, soft yeast and dough notes. Taste is a mix of nice blueberry, sweet fruit, hints of orange, touch of lemon into a bit of biscuit, bread, finishing sweet, touch of bitterness.

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.
