Bottle, shared with guests. Medium purple, short lived head. Soapy berries, sweet and mildly estery. Normally blueberries are my favourite fruit to match with beer, but this didn’t work for me. At all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours a pale amber color with 2 fingers of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild blueberry and cereal grains. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a dry finish. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Nicely done, well balanced, and not too fruity.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an attractive deep wisteria with a hint of pink in the creamy, off-white head.
Blueberries lead the aroma without overpowering the yeasty, doughy wheat ale underpinning. Palate is stronger, with nice balance of blueberries, a touch of lemon and bread. Very smooth, pert and refreshing.
This is a fruit beer that will appeal to those who dislike the usual categories of sweet or sour. It’s an ale that happens to highlight blueberries, without being sugary or bitter.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a murky opaque burgundy with a small beige head. Aroma is very dirty and earthy, with dulled blueberries. Flavour brings out potent blueberries, with a little wheat, and some earthiness. Quite fruity and well-balanced - tastes better than it smells. Decent beer.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bluish pink color, the room is dark so it’s hard to determine the proper color. Puree based sugar aroma. I don’t taste a lot of fruits. A little flavor of ’fruit’ but nothing specific. Leaves a little puree based after taste. Overall I feel like they tried to put too many fruits and none of the flavors cone through.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Tap & Barrel - Olympic Village. Nice purple colored pour with a short lived white head. Fruity, slightly syrupy aroma. Sort of like blueberry pancakes. A hint of lemon zest and some doughy malts. Flavor is lightly tart and citrusy with a lot of blueberry jam. Some grass, lemon peel, and tart berry. Nice, actually.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Tap & Barrel Coal Harbour. Beautiful purple colour, mix of fruit, some wheaty character, and a balanced, slightly tart fruit finish. Would be a 5 for appearance if it had a nice head.
