Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 20, 2008
courtesy of oh6gdx - hazy and dark pink-bordeaux colour; stable pale beige head; deep aroma of blueberies, notes of dust and blackcurrants; juicy and medium-bodied, sweet with a moderate acidity; long aftertaste of blueberries-sweeties with some residual sweetness - somehow manages to be quite drinkable

SaintMatty (5242) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2008
300ml Bottle- A shade of red in colour with a small head. Very aromatic and perfumed aroma with blueberries featuring prominently. Bitter, fruity taste initially which becomes more sweet and dry in the finish. Quite nicely balanced.

taunusmies (331) - FINLAND - DEC 19, 2007
Pours hazy, purple brown colour. Thick head. As name implies, the beer has a strong aroma of blueberries, but a bit acrid and fermented. At first the mouthfeel is quite fizzy but changes soon to a watery side. Only points come from choosing such an unusual flavour, but otherwise no great shakes.

ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2007
Purpleish. Thich head which leaves a nice lace. Smells just like fermented blueberry juice and tastes like it too, little yeasty. Feels very light. Pleasant surprise.

FatPhil (9344) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 14, 2007
330ml bottle. Deep purple, thick lasting creamy head. Iím not hugely familiar with blueberries, but the aroma is exactly how I remember raspberry ripple ice cream to be. So itís very sweet, maybe a little artificial. Creamy texture in the mouth due to the high but not excessive carbonation. Taste is a bit schizophrenic - itís got everything from sweet fruits to beer to bubblegum to something savoury like gravy, and a bit of soap. Iíve got to admit the chemical bubblegum and soap component is a bit too dominant, which spoils it a little. Itís obviously well made beer, but I just donít like it. Sorry guys, Iíve got to be the bad guy, and mark this down - it was looking damn good until I turned up!

bierkoning (10199) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2007
Bottle from Tbone_, thanks! Purple red color, hazy. Strong blueberry aroma, nothing artificial about it. Dry blueberry flavor. Thin to medium bodied. Some tannines. The absolute dryness, combined with the strong berryfruit character makes it a very pleasant beer.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle. Brown-rhubarb colour, a thick white head with shades of pink, with medium-small bubbles. The aroma is strong pure blueberry cream ice cream at first, later it turns more metallic. There are some vanilla and cinnamon here as well, christmassy! The mouthfeel is a bit watery, almost like grass, with a lot of carbonation. The taste is crisp of blueberry and it has a lot of the same flavours as hoegaarden or many other witbeers. Well, after all, this is a Belgian wheat beer. Could have been stronger in taste, but the finish is sweet and of medium length.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 21, 2007
Bottled (BB 08/2008)
Dark ruby red color with good pink/blueberry head, some lace. Very strong aroma of fresh blueberries and blueberry soup. Crisp carbonation. Dry, a bit acidic berry-flavor then flavor of blueberries in the finish. I like how they have got taste of fresh blueberries in this beer, no artifical feeling here. I would like to have stronger version of this, now lacks an alcoholic kick in the body. Interesting and well-brewed like all of these Diamond beers by Proef.
