1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

Pours a hazy white color, loooks kind of like a wit. Strong blueberry aroma, smells really sweet. Very light beer. Tastes like an American wheat. Only a slight hint of blueberries in the flavor. No finish at all.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very big on the blueberries in the aroma. Fades into a slight wheaty aroma. Pours a very hazy yellow, almost like a skinky Bud Light. Maybe not. Flavor is not what I expected, and itís not a pleasant surprise. Very spritzer-like mouthfeel, kinda like an egg cream. Is this Calistoga? Iím angry, and you wouldnít like me when Iím angry.

I was expecting it to be a little wackier...Itís too bland. The blueberry flavor is noticeable, it lingers a bit, but it seems a bit thin and almost sour. I think I prefered San Luis Obispoís blueberry, but itís been a while.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2005 Youíll never believe this, but this beer tasted like a decent pale ale with blueberries mixed into it! Not bad if ya like blueberries. My wife sure does which is why I have had WAAAAAY too many blueberry beers for my liking.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours thin, fluffy white head, light golden color, slightly hazy. Blueberry nose, slightly sweet aroma. Initial taste of blueberry is quickly overpowered by sour tones, though the finish is watery and not very bitter. Slightly hoppy flavor. Itís not nearly as good as the framboise lambics Iíve had, but itís not a bad beer either.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Sour berry aroma with sour granny smith apple notes and light blueberries. Grassy maltiness as well. Moderately hazy golden color with a fluffy white head. Hints of blueberry, but overpowered by sourness of green apples. A light grassy note with bitterness to finish. This tastes kind of like a lambic. I am not sure if they were intentionally going for this flavor or if this is just a bad bottle or...

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden color body with a fizzy thin head. Aroma is blueberry of course and smells like blue berry pancakes. Taste has some water and artificial fruit flavor and grain wheat. Not a good fruit beer in my opinion.
