COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blueberries are great for pancakes and muffins as we all know, but here at Milly's we prefer them in out beer. Over 200 pounds of blueberry puree was used in making our Blueberry Ale.

Draft at the brew pub. Gold with a purple hue of blueberry juice plus berry’s floating around. Basically this is golden ale with Maine blueberries added to it. The malt and berry do play well together. Not overly sweet. I no longer drink a lot of fruit beers however if you are in the mood for one, this is respectable.

Tap at millys. Pours a light golden with a violet tinge and a few blueberries floating in the beer. Aroma is nice real fresh blueberry and blueberry muffin- doughy and sweet. Good flavor- good berry pretty powerful overall, nice crisp pils malt backbone with a light sweetness, blueberries become a slight bit harsh in the end and almost solvent like but still pretty good for this style which I usually don’t care for.

If you like blueberry beer, you will love this ale. The taste of blueberry is not too strong as to where it is overpowering, but it is definitely there

I’m not a big fan of Maine blueberry ales and i think most of them should just be poured into a sink. This had a wonderful purple to rose tone, nice blueberry nose, and a strong hop finish. Dry, not cloyingly sweet, despite the strong blueberry notes.

sampled at Milly’s. Amber in color. Aroma: fresh blueberries, malt. Taste is malty with the perfect amount of fresh blueberry taste. medium bodied, very nice "regular" fruit style beer.

Cold on tap at Milly’s Tavern: Pours a clear copper color with a thin layer of alabaster bubbles. Aroma and taste are of sweet malt and blueberries with grass and floral notes. Has a short and sweet ending. Excellent dessert ale.

on tap-pours a thin creamy white head that laces with amber/copper color. Aroma is blueberry, sweet malt. Taste is blueberry, sweet malt-butterscotch & slightly smokey/roasty, medium hops bite. Autumn in the north east, nicely done fruit beer that is a medium body instead of a light bodied beer. OK carbonation.

BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2006
[tap @ brewpub] Pours a clear, reddish brown color, with a 2-finger, white head. Aroma is pretty straight up: fresh blueberries! Flavors back the aroma up well, with a nice malty base and slightly tart/bitter finish. Really quite drinkable, this one is very good.

Sampled from growler. Reddish-copper in colour, thin white head, some leftover lace. The aroma was of sweet blueberries and strawberries, floral hops, pepper. The flavour was slightly sour and tart, some light blueberries, slightly sweet with some lingering pepper spice. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a lingering sweetness, slightly crisp and dry.

Sample from growler shared by brewer Dirtymike with the crowd at the Ratebeer Mondial gathering. Light strawberry-pink color, fine-bubbled head...fruit-tart nose with a slightly acerbic/acidic quality...sour, tart body is peppery at the finish, only light and simple fruitiness...tingly, strong carbonation. Mmm, think I could have used a bigger sample and one even fresher.
