Ruby colour with a light red head. Faint berries and a bit of cider to the nose. Kind of an oily character to the palate. Faint berries and acidic flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish purple color, pinkish head. Nose of mild berries, malt. Almost medium bodied, slight tart/sweet flavor, mild fruitness and spicy bitterness, decent interplay of elements. Very understated in most aspects, hard to believe its 10% but I did feel it. Was fairly enjoyable. Maybe a nice one to start the ladies with:) But all in all, for $12 a pop, I expect more.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper color with a thick head. Strong aroma of wheat with something that reminded me of carrots. Lots of wheat and blueberries. The coriander jumps out a little too much for me. Okay, but so not worth a 750mL bottle and its price.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear ruby red brown brew with a thick pinkish white head. Fast dissolving head and leaves a sparce lacing. Aroma is sweet berries, roasted malt, and a touch of pepper. Taste is highly carbonated, tart berries, more spice and hints of coriander & cinnamon. Finish is medium body, a little dry and a tart aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottle was exceptionally expensive. Next time I don’t think I will be dropping the $13 for a 750ml. Pour is orange/amber (I’m not seeing the purple) with only wisps of small white bubbles. Aroma is mild fruit with just a touch of Belgian character, mostly sweetness. Flavor is light and sweet with a noticeable but mild blue/black berry flavor. Body is actually a bit watery, with a sticky finish. Nothing special here. The base Belgian beer could be better, and the fruit character could be better. Overall a disappointment for such an expensive beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear reddish-purple-brown pour with a short, sticky head. Alcoholic fruity aroma. The blueberries and blackberries hit you immediately, but are soon followed by a malt-liquor like flavor mixed with fake sugary fruits. The alcohol is not masked at all. Somewhat disappointing. I thought the guy on the bottle looked like Jimmy Stewart with a black eye.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 750 ml bottle. Ruby red pour - like a red zinfandel - with a tight white head - sticky lacing. Faint fruity aroma with brief hints of alcohol. Some intial berry flavors are encountered and after a while some toffee notes take over. Sweet, malty back end with some
nutty accents. Mouthfeel is thick and rich and the 10% abv is hidden well. A nice one to savor over and spend some time with. Can’t figure out if the guy on the label looks more like Dustin Hoffman or Huey Lewis?

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mahogany pour with very thin head. Mild fruity berry like aroma. Black beery taste which definetly gets better as it is warmed. This was just ok for me as I have never been a big fruit beer lover.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle ($10 + tax) and served in my other NB worthy glass: DISCLAIMER: I LOVE BLUEBERRIES...
This beer has a deep purple and brown hue with little head nor lace. The nose detects ripened farm fresh blueberry, blackberry, and some grainy malts along with a dash of sugary Belgian character. The flavor profile is sweet fruits over a layer of malt and grassy hops. Simple and flavorful, a joy to the palate. The mouth feel is sticky and playful with a aggressive carbonation level.
I knew I would like this more than your average ratebeerian. Disregard this rating for I am a Blueberry whore...RUMPH
