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.

pottygok (472) - 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...itís like drinking fruit juice. Very little depth or development here.

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.

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.

jmikolich (1449) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2012
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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4943) - 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.

steelhead3686 (242) - Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2011
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 itís a must if you are a big blueberry fan. I am not.

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 30, 2011
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.
