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 tastes like BooBerry cereal. Fruit explodes out of the glass, and is very light and not very artifical as far most of the beers in this style are. Taste very light clean and fresh. Somewhat sweet and tart, but overall very well done.

This a beer that would go very well with pancaked in the moring. I had this beer at night and it was a bit much. I could only drink 1, any more and I would have had to use it as syrup.

22 oz bottle. Poured rich yellow with nice, long-lasting white head. Yep, blueberries are what greet your nose, but with some citrus is there too. In fact after the first taste, it the the citrus that dominates. Strong carbonation makes it a bit fizzy. Reminds me a lot of Lost Coast Great White, which is half the price here in Eureka. So while this is a decent beer, as time goes on I find myself looking more and more at quality versus cost. Maybe it was just too dark in the room, but I completely missed that this was BlueBEERY, instead of BlueBerry until I brought up this page to post my rating. Cute.

(22 oz bottle: $3.49 at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) I donít often pop the cap on a beer and have it work like a can of air freshener, but I could quickly smell the aroma of fresh tart blueberries from a few feet away, and once poured in the glass, tart blueberries completely dominates the nose of this beer. Tasting this beer, it is fairly tart with an authentic and strong blueberry flavor, nothing artificial tasting here. Actually, it tastes like eating a bowl of tart blueberries with lemon drizzled over it. And really, the fact that this fruit beer is totally tart and not sweet at all is what makes this a pretty decent American fruit beer in my opinion. The beer finishes a bit weak, with lemon citrus sticking around longer than the blueberry flavor. Thereís really no maltiness and not hops or bitterness in this beer, and I greatly approve of this. Very carbonated mouthfeel teams up with the tartness to make for a light bodied, clean and refreshing beer. Pale straw and slightly hazy in appearance, with no tinting from the fruit. With the usual strong carbonation levels of Marin bottles, the snow white head is very perky and tall, despite performing the most careful pour of which Iím capable. The head never fades below a quarter-inch in height, and leaves a few clumps of foam on the glass. This isnít the kind of beer Iíd drink often, but once every few years, I grab a bottle of this and enjoy the hell out of it. But then again, I also really love blueberries.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 8, 2005
22oz bottle. Pale golden color with a small white head. Pungent blueberry concetrate smell. Muted malt flavors, with a large sweet blueberry component. Some graininess and residual tart and chemical taste in the finish. Mouthfeel is light medium with a cloying stickiness.

bb (6784) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Bottle. Pale golden straw colored with white head. Fruity/malty aroma. Malty flavor backed by some fruitiness. Wouldnít be able to tell it was blueberry, but there is some tartness. Medium bodies and thirst quenching.

mustangjoe (183) - redondo beach, California, USA - AUG 20, 2005
Bottle. A very dull yellow color with a nice white head that did not last very long and left absolutely no lacing. The aroma had a faint blueberry smell to it, but a peppery spice smell dominated the aroma. In the flavor, the spicyness dominated once again, with a slightly sour blueberry taste coming through at the very end. Not exactly what I was expecting or hoping for.

Bottled. Straw colored, hazy, 1" tall white head of large bubbles that you might expect on a sparkling cider, quickly dissipating and leaving no lace that it ever existed. Aroma. Well. If ever they made a blueberry sweet-tart, it would smell like this beer. Other comments include "morning dew on a field of wildflowers." What Iím thinking here is that it reminds me of a creek in Coos Bay, Oregon, where humidity is tremendous, the air is cool and there are a lot of grasses, flowers and berries about--it smells somewhat like this place. As it warms, there is some toasted caramel. Blueberry smells artificial syrup--like the stuff at I-Hop. Body is medium to light. Carbonation is effervescent and foamy, leaving behind a dry finish. Flavor is dominated by yeast--very clean yeast, no exciting funk--which entales a moist leather pouch buried in wet soil with grass growing in it. Finish is sour, or in the case of blueberries, assertively tart and pleasing. Blueberry flavor is light and throughout the experience: it could be called the backdrop, or the canvas of this painting. Flavor is reminiscent of champaigne. Overall, very refreshing, simple, enjoyable--something you could drink a LOT of--and fairly boring. I expected more blueberry character. Note on the bottle says "all natural flavor with artificial coloring added." Adding color to make it straw colored seems most pointless to me. Worth a try on a hot day.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2005
humoungous blueberry aroma, but unfortunately, not much transferred into the taste, which was a little malty and watery, with an unpleasant metallic aftertaste, despite being poured from a bomber. the pour was a cloudy gold color with very little white head. this was an ok beer, but after the nose, the flavor was a major let down, add the strange aftertaste, and i was not thrilled.
