COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Poured with a slight haze, amber-orange with a thin white head. Aroma is a mix of sour and sweet blueberries. Light body, creamy carbonation with a soft mouthfeel. Bready malt flavour with wheat and blueberries. Finishes with just enough dryness.

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

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

If you get this on tap at the Pumphouse brewery they will add fresh blueberries in the bottom of your glass, which is a nice touch. Smells very sweet. Tastes of hay,wheat and a very sweet blueberry taste. More sweet than I like my fruit beer to be, but very refreshing on a Summer day and just feels right drinking it.

One of the better blueberry beers I have had. Seems like a popular Maritime Canada thing for sure. This one tastes less "blueberry candy" than some others I have had. A nice dark straw colour with a thin white head. Smell is hay, caramel and blueberry. Tastes like it smells. Some honey and white bread as well. A great outdoor summer beer.

Tastes of blueberries up front balanced with a nice malt backbone, some grassiness, and heavy carbonation

341 ml bottle. Pours a golden-orange colour with a thin white head. Sweet aroma of blueberries, malt and a hint of pepper. Sweet flavour of malt and blueberries with pepper in the finish. Light body, watery texture and fizzy carbonation.

Pours a clear golden yellow without a lasting head. Strong blueberry fragrance noticed immediately. On the palate, however the blueberry is much milder. No discernible finish or aftertaste. I would not recommend or order again. Unremarkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pungent blueberry fragrance. Golden straw colour with small white head. Not overally tasty but a decent blend of hops and malt. Was expecting more but still a goos fruit beer
