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.

Courtesy SoLan. Growler. Pours a cloudy straw gold, with a light white head. Smells of up-in-your-face blueberry which really dominated anything else I might pull out of the nose. Maybe a touch of some orange citrus too. The flavor was a little astringent, almost souring. The blueberries were obviously noticeable and powerful, but it had a mustyness to it that wasnt appealing. I believe this growler had some age to it, so it definitely wasnt fresh. Possibly some SoLan closet aging going on here. Anyways, Im usually not a huge fan of blueberry beers, so I wasnt expecting to be blown away here.

Courtesy SoLan. Cloudy light oange with a sparse white head. Aroma of blueberry cereal. Very bland, tastes like a plain golden ale with some light blueberry flavor added. Pretty simple.

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

on tap at RRBC, 2Mar2012, Nose is berry with some malty twinge, taste is artificially sweetened blueberry with too much sweetness to really enjoy.. though after 5 sips or so it tastes pretty good.. though nothing special definitely a good beer for those looking just to have a beer.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2008 This smells just like blueberry which gets you all excited--but then you have to eventually taste it. The body is pale yellow with a white head. The flavor is some awful combination of blueberries, and miller lite I think. It tastes like the beercellar’s attitude.

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

Tap at Ohio Brew Week. Pours clear glden color with a smallish white head. Aroma is huge blueberry, with some slight citrus and light malt notes. Flavor is again huge bleberry but not terribly overpowerin, some more light citrus and malt notes. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, finishes on the sweet side. Pretty good stuff from an otherwise dissapointing Brew Week.

Clear straw color with a fine white. Bread and light malt with a very subtle hop presence and light blueberries. Brightly carbonated with a clean and crisp finish. Lightly sweet with malt and touch of blueberries. Finishes dry. A delightful summer seasonal. The blueberries are subtle and complement the simplicity of the blond ale well.

Note: I got this beer on tap during Brew Week in Athens, Ohio.

Has a color that is a mix between champagne and corn syrup. Smells just like blueberry waffles with butter. A very light sour taste with high carbonation. Overall it’s a must if you are a big blueberry fan. I am not.
