2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
16oz can into a pint glass.
3.0 A: Clear straw color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is a touch below average and just a few wisps of lacing are left.
3.5 S: Pleasant blueberry permeates the air. There’s not much to say about the base beer. It’s clean overall, perhaps a touch grainy with a light hay component. The blueberry covers up most of it.
2.5 T: Like 98% of fruit beers, this one doesn’t commit to the blueberry. There’s enough to give it a nice aroma, but not enough to hold its own in the taste. Thus, it comes across as too watered down. Again, this is clean overall with light grassy/hay.
3.25 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lawnmover beer drinkability.
2.75 D: Not terrible for a fruit beer, but needs either a lot more fruit or none to become a better beer.

Tap at the brewery tasting room. Hazy golden color, fine head. Very aromatic blueberry nose, very fruity and realistic. Light hops and malt. Good beery flavor without being too sweet. Light bitterness. Well done.

Rohrbachs BlueBeary Ale has a light yellow color with a slight haze. This is topped with a small bright white head that fades slowly and sets up a wispy thin covering. Lacing is mostly slick. The aroma has a light grain maltiness with some light citrus like hops notes and a very slight blueberry fruity sweetness. The flavor matches its aroma and offers a light pale grain and white bready malt base. Mixed in there is some modest blueberry syrup like sweetness. The finish adds a light citrus like hop flavor note and some drying bitterness. Overall the feel is light and a bit thin but drinkable.

Sample at the brewpub on 7/1/13. Clear yellow pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma of blueberry extract and sweet malt. Malty flavor with a good amount of blueberry character before a sweet malt finish.

Draft. Pours a clear amber with a generous head. Aromas of artificially flavored blueberry candy, malt. The blueberry is not as pronounced in the taste, and thank heaven for that. Finishes with a slight acidity. Decent.

Tap. Pours a hazy yellowish. Thin white head. hay, citrus, blueberry.medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, light body, fizzy. This beer for me has been hit or miss some times its so awesome wit the amount of blueberry coming thru. Very fresh. Other times it is kind of bitter almost like a alka seltzer. Its great when its good gross when its bad. This batch I had was good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Presentation: It was poured from tap and served in a pint glass at the Rohrbach brewpub.
Appearance: The body has a light yellow gold color with light haze and a small bright white head. The head slowly fades to wispy thin covering as I drink and makes a little bit of slick lacing along the way.
Smell: In the nose I pick up a delicate light grain with mellow citrus hops and a light blueberry sweetness.
Taste/Palate: Just like the nose, the flavor brings light pale grain and white bread maltiness with light citrus hops and a thin blueberry syrupy sweetness. The finish is light and fairly dry. Its light bodied and a bit thin but defiantly drinkable.
Notes: Overall it’s drinkable and clean but not something I will be seeking out.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2010 Growler from Beers of the World in Rochester, NY: Hazy golden hue. The blueberry flavor is intense, but in no way tastes like cough syrup. There’s a distinct touch of honey and sourness to it. Overall a wonderful beer. Great coupled with floating blueberries on top (served on tap at Magnolia’s on Park Ave. in Rochester, NY). #020 on 06142009, DG.
