2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: Draft at the Wrigleyville location, 7/6/14, My 100th Fruit Beer tick! Good times!
Aroma: The nose is sweet and fruity, but fairly light, hints of blueberry and candied sugar
Appearance: This one pours a pinkish color with a thin head and some average lace
Flavor: The taste is similar, it is light and fairly sweet, but not crazy sugary or fruity
Palate: The body is fairly light, it drinks okay, and has some fairly average carbonation
This one is what you’d expect. It doesn’t get overly cloying, which is nice. If you are looking for an easy drinking fruit beer you could do a lot worse.

It's a blueberry ale, but doesn't taste sweet or fruity. Just tastes like a good beer to drink on a hot day. Refreshing and malty. Color is clear light with a tinge of pinkness. On tap at Goose Island Wrigleyville.

[Tap] Pours a reddish amber color with a fizzy white head. Nose is of berry notes, perfume and light grains. Taste is of blueberry, strawberry, biscuit malts and light floral notes. Crisp finish. Not bad.

lighter in color. It has a pleasant raspberry/blueberry aroma. Not a complex beery, but overall solid. It mixes a sweet caramel, tart raspberry/blueberry flavor. It has a smooth clean finish.

On tap @ Goose Island, Wrigleyville. Medium brown with a mottled purple haze color, almost no head. Pleasant blueberry fruit aroma. Nice light beer with a soft blueberry flavor, a little bit of sweetness. Would be very refreshing on a hot day, and easy to drink several. Not too fruity. This beer is a regular annual feature at the brewery honoring the home town boys of summer. Go Cubs! ...one of these days anyway!!!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Goose wrigley. Smells like a pile of blueberries. For having this much aroma it isn’t overpowering taste and enjoyable. Feel like the rating should be better on this one
