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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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, 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.

2nd of my 10 tasting flight @ Portsmouth. Wouldn’t call this retired as it is available in both bottles and on tap at the brewery as of mid august. Pours slightly red with a lil’ ring of bright white head. Nose has a little bit of fruit. Taste is sweet and muddy, overall not so great.

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!

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

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.

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.
