[2026-20090303] 341mL bottle. Very raspberry leaf and juice aroma with fruity yeast. Clear, amber orange body with a long-lasting foamy off-white head. Fruity tart raspberry flavour has a nice fresh yeast bread background. Medium body is a little tart. Not bad, tasty, a little rough alcohol. (6/3/6/3/13) 3.1

Pours a deep copper colour with a thick creamy off white head. Nose definitely has blueberries present, but is pretty faint. Flavour is quite light and fairly tart. Lots of blueberries and just the faintest hint of spicy wheat. Very smooth, quite refreshing. Not too bad on the whole.

Strangebrewer (859) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2008
Poured clear amber with minimal head. Sweet scent of berries. Light wheat mouthfeel with soft bluebeery flavour. Refreshing beer, I wish I had more than one to try.

Gethinbeer (2158) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2008
From bottle. Blueberry aroma. Light copper colour with a thin lace. Sweet, smooth ale. Strong in blueberries. Smoother texture than expected. Good bitterness, slight hops and blueberry. Not to bad.

Pours a hazy light amber. Notes of the blues on both the aromas and palate with a nice wheat follow up to the finish.

This one reminds me of the Belhaven Blueberry. slightly mettalic, golden color, too carbonated, thin odd mouthfeel. Not a fav

presario (4628) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2007
Thick fluffy head. Yellow beer. All blueberry nose. Flavour is a pleasant surprise. A lot of blueberries and wheat. Feels and tastes like beer.

LadyCooper (100) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2007
Pours a clear orange-gold colour with very little head. Very fruity, fresh aroma of blueberries, flavour is a bit more tangy and malty, but there’s unfortunately a bit of blueberry sourness. Not bad, but I’ve had better blueberry beers.

rederic (2942) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2006
Bright amber color, with no head and carbonation, fruity nose of intense blueberries, with a delicate lavender spiciness and ginger, faint pale malt note, subtle citrusy accent in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a mild blueberry fruitiness character, bready dough, hint of spiciness, leading towards a light acidic blubeberry fruity finish.
