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.

On tap at the brewpub. Thin white head, straw-golden body. Smells like blueberry muffins. Taste is very much like the aroma, light grains with sweet blueberry. Crisp, clean finish.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2007
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.

pottygok (469) - Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Aroma: Strong blueberry aroma, straight through. Appearance: Clear straw color with a white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Taste: Light-medium sweetness straight through. Palate: Light body, slick sticky texture, soft carbonation, long berry finish. Overall: Meh...it’s like drinking fruit juice. Very little depth or development here.

Draft. Pours a lighter copper. Beige head. Aroma is big berry and not much else. Taste is sweet berries. Didn’t expect to like this one much, but it was pretty good.

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Not bad for a blueberry beer. Pale watery colored yellow body and a creamy head. Big blueberry covers the rest of the beer except for maybe a bit of wheat. This really fits the 90 degree weather outside.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2006
On tap at the brewpub on 6/28/06 - Pours pale golden with a short foamy white head. Aroma was of blueberry muffins. Flavor is nice sweet blueberries blended with light grains. Nice full carbonation gives this a soft mouthfeel and a crisp finish. Pretty tasty.

Mode: Draft

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?
