Refreshing ale served with blueberries in the glass. Pours golden-orange with a fine white head. Aroma of fresh blueberries, blueberry bread (floury), crystallized sugars and pepper. Sweet flavors dominated by mild blueberries with a malty background. Sweet fruity aftertaste with hints of pepper. Light-medium body, creamy and refreshing. Our Blueberry Ale is better enjoyed as an aperitif or with dessert. Keeping an open mind, it fits nicely with food plates which are slightly sweet in flavours (like some Cantonese dishes), or with any meat when served with a fruit based sauce (preferably blueberry, such as our Blueberry Ale Sweet and Mild BBQ sauce offered at our Barnyard BBQ) or with fruits in the stuffing. Some nice pairings: Cheese cake (with or without fruits), crème Brulée, Wensleydale cheese with Blueberries.

Can. Hazy golden yellow pour with a medium white head. Aroma is like a blueberry danish or pie - sweet blueberry with some bready and biscuity notes like pastry. Taste is a little sweet, lots of blueberry, touch of cereal. I can only assume this has artificial flavours, but really not bad.

Pours slightly hazy pale straw with one finger of white head, good retention and minimal lacing. (3/5) Nose is blueberries, sugar, wheat, faint grass/hay. (5/10) Taste is moderately strong sweet, mild bitter. (4/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lightly crisp finish. (3/5) Fairly typical adjunct lager, with sweet and not entirely authentic-tasting blueberries. Think preservative-laden sealed-in-plastic blueberry scones - you might not necessarily want one every day, but as an occasional guilty pleasure they’re not the end of the world. (10/20)

Pours a golden-orange colour with a thin white head. Aroma of blueberries & malt. Good balance of flavour. This would be great to try again in the summer!

Draft at the source, including blueberries added to the glass. Clear yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of straw, hay, light berries. Taste is sweetish hay and fruit. OK summer drink.

Pale yellow, minimal white head. Smells of straw, blueberries. Tastes just like it smells. A little watery, and has a long lingering finish. Not bad, but nothing all that special.

My favorite fruit beer made with real fruit. Great session beer for those summer days, but I like it all year long!

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2014 Pours a light straw with a fair amount of carbonation. Thin white head that doesn’t stick around long. Smells exactly like a blueberry scone. Tastes are of sweet blueberries, a touch of malt, another touch of light hops. Overall, maybe a bit gimmicky, but still infinitely drinkable on a hot summer day.

Very light straw colour, aroma of straw and blueberries. Taste is very light lager with a hint if blueberry at the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
