3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Rose colored liquid topped by a moderate rocky pinkish head. Tart berry nose with a hint of citrus hops. Intense berry flavor upfront with yeasty notes. Warming alcohol burn is oh so subtle. Slightly bready maltiness. Subtle citrus hop innuendo. Fruity dry finish. Belgian fruit beer character with a hoppy jolt.

On tap. Looked dark in the glass. Could have been purple. Spicy aroma. Tons of blueberry taste. I’m not too much into these styles of beers, although this one was decent. Does hide the 10% ABV pretty well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2015 750 mL bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is as advertised -blueberries and blackberries - with a coriander and clove hint. The beer is a clear, dark blueberry-purple hue with a thin, pink, fuzzy soap head that has okay retention and a light lace (extra points for unique coloring). The thick oily beer is a medium high sweet and medium bitter bitter mix with a light sour. There’s an abundant, light fizz carbonation to help the medium full body go down. The flavor strikes as a blueberry and blackberry muffin with a peppery clove spice. It finishes crisp and peppery with grass, bread, and tart berries. The aftertaste is clean and astringent with just a hint of spice and tart berries.

I wasn’t sure how this beer would be. A lot of blueberry beers taste like wine. This blueberry beer had more of a lager taste. I thought overall it was well worth the money.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to a snifter showing a fairly clear, reddish copper color, with fair persistence to the finger’s width of soft white head foam, and even better lingering nature to the waves & ribbons of lacing. The nose was expressive cherry/berry, balanced sweetness & tartness, with complementary spice. The taste continued tangy, tart, and sweet, with some modest hop astringency, and lively carbonation, in a medium body. Alcohol seemed hidden behind the pronounced flavor notes as the finale presented just enough dryness to finish crisply. Cordial-like but not too much sweetness allowed nice drinkability.
