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.

Had a sample of this at Millyís Tavern. It had a clear color, but the more I looked at it, the more the edges were a light violet color. Big blueberry smell. The taste was very good! The bign blueberry-ness was in the aroma, not so much the taste, which was perfect. Too many fruit beers try to overpower you with a strong taste. This is perfectly flavorful. Iím going to fill my growler with this the next time Iím at Millyís.

Growler from Dirtymike at the 6/4/05 Mondial Gathering. Pale-amber color, with light violet tinges and a hint of auburn on the edge. White-pink head is ample-sized and lasting, with light lacing. Smells of blueberry juice, lightly tart, hints of pale grains and perfumey esters. Flavor of blueberry juice, blueberry skins and dry, grainy malt. Good malt sweetness and a wonderful balancing tartness that I have not found in other blueberry beers. Low carbonation, medium body. Not sweet and artificial in the least. A great introduction to the brewery! Kind of like the first batch of Au Courant, which I also absolutely loved. That smooth, honeyish malt in good quantity with a spicy/perfumey, tart fruit flavor.

On tap at Millyís. Clearish beer with a slight purple tinge to it. Fruity aroma. Very nice clean mouthfeel with a light blueberry taste that wasnít overpowering by any means. Just right. I normally odnít like blueberries, but this was great!

Cold on tap at Millyís 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.

sampled at Millyís. 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.

On tap at the brewpub: Clear orange with a thin white head. Sometimes there will be blueberries in the beer with some sugar topping. Well, this is a rating for the beer without that stuff in it. Sweet berry aroma, watery texture, starts and ends sweet. Good for a fruit beer and at $1 a pint during happy hour, it is a great deal.

Obvious blueberry aroma with a perfumey, peppery character. Clear pinkish tan with decent white head that covers lastingly and leaves some lacing. Fair fruit flavour doesnít dominate the wheat character of the base beer and has a nicely tart finish. Soft carbonation with a medium body and creamy texture. I think Iíd prefer this with crisper carbonation but in any case it was very good and that could be that it deteriorated in the few hours in the growler. Enjoyed at the Ratebeer Mondial Gathering 2005.

[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.

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.

Iím 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.
