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.

Draft sample. Poured amber with average rocky white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Aroma was moderate berry balanced tone. Flavor was moderate berry with a good balanced sweet finish of short duration. Medium body with pleasing texture and soft carbonation. Average fruit beer.

hazy pale yellow, fine dense white head, lots of tiny bubbles, solid lace, huge fresh blueberry aroma, lots of blueberry flavor, touch of sweetness is balanced by the blueberry tartness, flavor is all blueberry with just enough malt for a base, no apparent hops or bitterness, is this the perfect blueberry beer soda?

hopscotch (9549) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2008
Growler... VBWT2008... Murky yellow ale with a small, quickly dissipating, bubbly, white head. Grainy, fruity nose with lots of fresh blueberries and just a touch of honey... a bit too restrained. Medium-bodied with medium carbonation. Begins almost cloyingly sweet, but winds up being totally inoffensive. Medium to heavy pale grain sweetness with a very late arriving hint of bitterness. The mid-length finish provides pale grain sweetness and moderate, minerally bitterness. Not my cup of tea, but SoLan provided the growler. Thanks Alan!

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2010
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.

Tap at the brewpub. Clear pale pour with a white head and lots of bubbles. Faint blueberry nose, a little more on taste. Pretty dull.

DrSilverworm (6962) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2013
On tap during Ohio Brew Week 2013, taster from The Pub. Clear golden color. Thin white head. Leaves some lace. Served with a blueberry in it. Wow. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Moderate sweet taste. Nice blueberry aroma, some wheat. Solid blueberry beer.

decaturstevo (5215) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 5, 2008
Courtesy SoLan. A slightly hazed strawgold pour with light lace. Light raspberry aroma with a little wheat. Adjuncts, wheat, light blueberry and a lemony flavor. Slightly thin and low carbonation from the growler. Not really a bad beer even a bit refreshing and a bit thin. Pretty much what it should be, I’d like to try it fresh.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a medium golden color with a small foamy white head that lingered and left excellent lacing. The aroma was tangy, tart and sweet blueberry. The flavor was spicy and yeasty with tart and sweet artificial blueberry and a hint of pepper. The finish was long and body was medium. Ok.
