COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A great fruit beer. The blueberry flavor is a perfect marriage of ingredients. Light and refreshing, this beer is great all by itself or blended with another. Try a Black and Blue which is a mix of Stout and Bluebeery Ale.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy softly carbonated light yellow-orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild flavor contained notes of blueberry. An OK brew just nothing special.

This had a good sized head.Aroma was of blue berries,but not too strong.The color was straw.The taste was of mainly a heavy taste of barley dominated beer with a touch of blueberries.I think a less dominating beer would have been better to taste the blueberries.I was hoping for more of a blueberry taste.Not bad,but could have been much better.

Simply ’Blueberry,’ not a very inspired name on this beer. This beer has a hazy, pale, straw-gold color and is topped by a frothy, initially one-finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The aroma smells definitively of blueberries as soon as I start to pour this beer. Reminds me of blueberry pancakes. Underneath the blueberries, or perhaps part of their character, is a touch of acidity. If you smell really intently, you might notice a touch of clean, yet thin, malt character, but you really have to dig for it underneath the blueberry notes. The aroma is pretty one-dimensional, but at least it smells like the beer’s name.

Quite dry tasting, yet the blueberry character is noticeable from the get go. It actual tastes of concentrated blueberry flavors, perhaps like you would find in a blueberry syrup, but without any of the sweetness. The dominant blueberry flavor actually adds a perception of sweetness to the finish that in actuality does not exist. The blueberry flavor is not over the top, in fact it is probably at a good level. It is certainly the largest component of the flavor though, as the base beer hardly musters any contributions to the flavor profile. The beer is very light in body and quite refreshing actually. Not horrible and it would certainly appeal to those who like fruit beers that are not very heavy on the beer taste.

As far as fruit beers go this was pretty nice. Plus it was the first blueberry beer I’ve ever liked. The flavor just doesn’t taste fake and isn’t too sweet. Certainly a pleasant surprise.

Bomber. Definite blueberry aroma. Hazy gold color with a white head that diminished rapidly. A bit fizzy. Starts with blueberry, quickly followed by malt. Then a different, stronger, blueberry flavor - like skins. The finish is mildly bitter, but the bitter might be the berry, or hop. Not sure. Dry finish. Different. Makes a change.

(Bottle) Pours a hazy golden body with a white head. Aroma of blueberries, perfume, and spruce. Flavor of blueberries, earthiness, and grass with a somewhat bitter finish.

A gift from IrishBoy. 22oz bottle. light color. white head. label says natural flavor, artificial color. Maybe the other way around. No special Blue Color. Aroma smells of blueberry extract. very sweet aroma. Flavors of Blueberries. Finish of malt and fruit. Flavor is much better than appearance. Very fizzy texture - must be from fermentation of real fruit...? They must have peeled these blueberries, there is no color but there is a lot if fruit flavor! Very light bodied and refreshing. Sweet and Fruit filled. I found some little blueberry seeds floating at the bottom of my glass as well, odd.

A very nice fruit beer. Pours with a gigantic head. Took about ten mins to pour the entire 22 oz bottle as the head just bubbled up uncontrollably. Appearance is wonderful, light brown and cloudy. Mouthfeel is very smooth and flavor is full of blueberry accents but not too strong and sweet. Still very nice.
