Draft. This shit is purple. Light purple, but definitely purple. I guess that’s what happens when you use real blueberries. The flavor has natural blueberry flavor, low sweetness, a clean grainy base, and some very light hops in the finish. Good stuff.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at brewpub as part of sampler. it seemed really popular and i saw several people come in and request growlers of this, and they put a handful of blueberries in each pour. the pour looks like grape soda. its just there regular lager mixed with blueberry juice in my opinion. tasted like fizzy soda pop beer. not undrinkable but not a beer drinkers beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft at the brewpub. Taste like their lager with blueberries squeezed in, which could very ell be what they did. Blue tainted light lager colour. A little head and lace. Sweetish. Soda like carbonation, watery. Avoid this creation

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Growler filled at the brewpub and consumed the next day. Pours a hazy but translucent blueish-purple with lots of blueberry bits floating about. The head is brilliant white with a slight blueish tint that makes it almost seem electric. Looks pretty in the glass. Pleasant aroma of blueberries. The flavor begins with blueberries, but is quickly truncated by some astringent hops. The hops bitterness is basically flavorless and contributes nothing to this beer. Watery body. No lager smoothness at all. Disappointing.

unique color. looks like dirty water - dark but translucent. Strong, delicious blueberry flavor and arouma. Lager yeast is subdued and actually balances the sweet blueberry and malts well. pretty tasty

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Gilded Otter. Pours a hazy but mostly clear brownish purple blue with a medium lightly purple white head. Slightly disturbing looking… comes served with a spoonful of blueberries in it which bounce around the bottom of the glass in the carbonation. Big blueberry aromas, with a little spicy grain in the background.
Thin to medium bodied, somewhat empty flavorwise at first, then slowly a big grainy lager flavor builds up. Finishes lightly, but heavy on the grain again. Not something I’ll be repeating. Very watery.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled @ Otter: Not a fan of fruit beers, but this one nailed it. The aroma is a great blend of blueberries and wheat. The color looks pretty authentic to me, giant berries floating at the bottom. Taste is delicious, not offensive like I thought it would be, although this was a sample size... could see it being a bit much in a pint.

Oddly this is one of my favorite GO beers. Clear blue color with a blueish tinted white head. Blueberries floating and sinking in the glass. Aroma is light with some fruit and grain. Taste is smooth and sweet and noticeable blueberries. Crisp and clean. Not bad and fun.
