COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pairing New Zealand hops with blueberries bursting of fresh flavours has created a tangy indigo fusion of tantalising taste.

Cask handpull at The Blackfriar London. Clear deepish gold colour lasting white head. Well it does taste of blueberries. I was in two minds about having this as blueberries arenít my favourite fruit. But this is decent. Good hoppy golden ale with real integrated fruit. Yep ok.

Cask at Haymarket. Hazy golden yellow, thin white head. Fresh blueberry aromas, some light biscuity malt too. Taste has a currant-fruit sweetness, light bitter. Little thin on the finish, but a nice beer.

tombyars (1410) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2014
Tasted this in Tennents Bar, Glasgow in 6th January 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear pale amber in colour with a thin white head. Fantastic aroma of creamy blueberry cheesecake but very short in intensity. Thin watery mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malt gives a weak digestive biscuit base with a sweet note of bramble fruit which fades rather fast. Weak hop resins are present in the short dusty, bitter aftertaste. Finish is slightly malty with a note of dry oak cask in the mouth, but sadly the flavours soon runs out of legs though.

Cask@the longhorns, walsall. Golden beer with medium head and decent lacing. Aroma of sweet pale malts and some blueberry. Taste is biscuit, some weak blueberry juice and a touch of sweetness. OK beer.

Just found this old rating. On cask at the Haymarket. Appearance - blonde with a nice cask haze. Nice head. Nose - creamy and the blueberry comes through. Taste - similar blueberry and cream notes. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a lovely elegant finish. Overall - interesting as Iíd have usually expected to use berry fruit with dark beers. This works really well.

Slightly fruity smell but the blueberry taste just knocks your socks off. Really pleasant drink. Very unusual. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wimpyjoe (4424) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2013
Cask @ Fox and Goose, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a very thin head. Has a bushy aroma but undoubtedly blueberry in flavour. Itís not over or underdone.
