COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our newest addition to our family of craft beers. A light golden ale, crisp on the palate with a refreshing blueberry aroma and flavor. Surprisingly different that most people expect. A sure winner!

Bottle from Paula via Half Time. Decent "true" blueberry aroma. Pours gold with a transient white head. Med body. Flavor is blueberry with some underlying wheat/malt. If you like blueberry, this might be for you. Finishes rather astringent and dry.

This poured a cloudy straw yellow with a slight blue tint and a white head. Aroma was wheat and yeast, medium freshly slightly sour bluberries, and light spices too. flavor was very nice balance of wheat and pale malt with the blueberries. Blueberries come off fresh and real, not artificial in any way. Nice.

Ellicottville Blueberry Wheat Beer is a crystal clear, pale straw colored beer with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin white blotch. It has an aroma of blueberry bubblegum. Lemon and wheat tones lie underneath. It smells a little artificial, but itís ok. Itís light bodied and metallic with a slightly gritty finish. Thereís not that much blueberry flavor, really. It almost seems a touch salty. Thereís a noticeable amount of green bitterness to it, especially at the finish. The bitterness hangs for a while after the swallow. Itís quite light and doesnít have a lot of personality, but it could make for a pretty good lawn mower beer.

Bottle. Inviting aroma of fresh blueberries. Pours a pale golden with thin white head. Flavor is sweet up front and finishes a little bitter. You can taste the blueberries but it isnít overbearing. Taste is a little watery to me. Light body and lively carbonation, not a fan of the aftertaste. Overall just not my taste.

Hammy78 (779) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2011
On tap at Ellicottville brewpub. Poured a slight golden yellow with not that much head. Aroma was a little sweet and of blueberry. Taste was much the same, but I wonder if it was because they put blueberries in the glass, as opposed to the actual beer itself. Nothing to really go crazy about, decent.

bottle poured a light golden in color with a thin covering of white head. aroma has sweet blueberry, wheat, and I get the odd pepper thing others have noted. mouth feel is on the thin side and the carbonation a bit low. flavor has a fairly authentic berry, wheat, rye, and again a distinct peppery ginger thing. quite odd for a fruit beer.

The color is a rather flat straw color, but with a nice haze. Itís not clear or see-through. It looks a lot like a wheat beer. The head goes away almost immediately. The aroma is a sweet wheaty smell with a nice blueberry accent. Smells very dry. Smells of pepper. Double sweetness of wheat and blueberry. Definitely sweet. Not much bitter or dry. Sweet is nice, but one-dimensional. A bit tart and sour. Feels wet and a bit watery, although that could just be interpreted as being refreshing. Itís almost too sweet to have too many in a row, but itís nice. Too much might just get a little too cloying.

Bottle via the wife. An average golden with average carbonation. Nose of blueberry pancake batter. Not much head to speak of. Not much in the "wheat" comes thru in the body at all. Some wavy blueberry tone in the body but overall a bit of a mess.

A bit too toned-down and dry for my (admittedly candyphile) tastes...itís like fruit beer with a silencer! Little wheatyness (ester tastes etc) to compensate. More exuberance and less diluting for mainstream tastes, please! (Georges Ave NB)

Bottle. Pours a golden orange color, slightly hazy, with some dark particulate matter floating around, and a medium frothy white head. Aroma is blueberry, hay, and pepper. Flavor is wheat, black pepper and spices, and some sweet/sour berry fruitiness. Smooth and crisp with low carbonation. Decent, but I would choose some other blueberry beers over this one.
