An American phenomenon, our version of this brew incorporates 200 lbs of Maine blueberries into a unique medium-bodied ale.

Pours murky blue tinged brown into a snifter. White head quickly recedes to mottle surface. Mild blueberry aromas. Dry with sweet blueberry upfront turning to a hint of cobbler and earthy skin and seeds in the medium length finish.

Decent but not great. Not much blueberry in the aroma. mostly malt and caramel. Same with the flavor. Just a faint blueberry essence.

Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 7/12/13

Aroma: A nice mix of bready and caramel malts, grassy hops, and, of course, blueberry
Appearance: It pours a ruby-orange color, with a small head and some light lacing
Flavor: The taste is much the same, the blueberry is present, not fake, and doesn’t overpower
Palate: It has a light but not watery feel to it, it is clean and easy drinking
Overall Impression: Overall, this is a tasty blueberry beer. Anytime you are in Maine/NH in the summer you see a lot of blueberry beers. Some of them have all the fake blueberry flavor and nothing else, some of them have a nice, fresh blueberry feel that doesn’t overpower everything else. I prefer the later category. This one is one of those.

On draft at Portsmouth Brewery. Pours a clear amber with red highlights. Nose is blueberry extract, lots of sweetness, and a bit of caramel. Flavor is similar- blueberry extract, some malts. Light to medium in body and not really my style.

On tap at the brewery. Reddish purple brown pour with a small white head. Bready malt and juicy blueberry nectar is pretty much all one will find in this summer quencher. Not overly complex of mind blowing, but great for what it is. Light body with a juicy finish.

Berry colored pour. Fruity/ berry aroma. Decent blueberry flavor, seems genuine. A nice summer fruit beer

Tod gave us a nice tour yesterday. This one is brewed with real blueberries, no artificial flavors or additives. No over- powering berry smell, like some other blueberry ales I’ve had. This is what I would call high end for it’s style. Very good summer drinker!

Reddish brown pour, Really a Fantastic looking beer. Served with blueberries. Malty aroma with some subtle blueberry notes. Flavor was pleasant, not overly sweet or syrupy. The base beer was caramel malty and the blueberry complimented this nicely. A nicely done blueberry ale.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JAN 3, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Clear reddish amber with a white head, served in a shaker with a dozen or so blueberries tossed in. Fresh, sweet blueberry nose and flavor, light sweet caramel. Far better than I expect from a beer like this.

On tap at the brewpub. Color was a light brown with a purple tint and a small tan head with several buleberries floating in the pint. Aroma was a slightly sweet malt with blueberry undertones.Flavor was initially sweet malt followed by a sight hop bitterness with the sweet blueberry finish.
