COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If you like the Pirate Light, be a little daring and try this light blonde ale with a fresh blueberry twist. This brew will remind you that spring is near.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2010 Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear pale golden color with tiny rising bubbles and a medium foamy ivory white head that recedes slowly. Latticework lacing on the glass. Blueberries and sweet malt in the nose. Light body with mildly tart berry and malt flavors. The finish is short and fruity. Just your average straightforward fruit beer all around.

pale yellow with white head. strong blueberry to the nose, slightly artificial smelling. the beer has strong blueberry flavor, again slightly artificial tasting, without in the sense of malt or hop character. not much of a beer, but the blueberry flavor is imprssively present

Pale yellow color... Blueberry muffin aroma... Flavor was kind of potpourri and perfumey... Not very good, a little too much fruit for my taste...

Sample at Rocky River. Clear yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is of Jiffy blueberry muffin mix. Flavor is much more muted. Sweet malt with some blueberry influence and a light, crisp finish.

On tap at the pub. Clear golden color with a thin shite head that left speckles of lace. Light blueberry nose. Tart blueberry fruitiness over a light beer. Lemon grass, raw grains and the blueberry which comes out in the finish. Nice use of a blueberry flavor over a not so interesting beer. I was burping blueberry many hours later.

Average/large creamy white excellent lacing head. It smells like dehydrated blue berries & fabreeze. Initial flavor is strong blue berry followed by wheatly cheap beer finished with slightly metallic taste but mostly masked with blue berry.

7/12/2009: Rocky River Blueberry Ale is stuffed with tons of fresh, floral, REAL blueberry aroma and flavor. This beer is gold in color with a decent white head and medium-light body. It is good and well-crafted, but a little bit goes a long way for me. However, mix about 2 parts of Rocky River Blueberry with 1 part of Rocky River Oompaloompa Chocolate Stout to create a pretty decent Blueberry Stout!

Sample (draught) at The Pub in Athens, Ohio during Ohio Brew Week 2009. Rating #19 for this beer.

Fizzy yellow draft. The aroma is full of very lively blueberries. The flavor is like a light beer, watery, with a touch of blueberry. The finish turns a bit sour and it sticks to the roof of the mouth. Not a fan.

growler@Vero Beach Throwdown-pours a white ring and cloudy yellow color. Aroma is blueberry. Taste is blueberry, grain, secondary spice/citrus hops-lemon. OK carbonation. Thanks to SoLan for sharing.
