3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler from January 2005. Hazy gold color, with a small white head which quickly dimished. I found the blueberry flavor to be far more subdued than in other blueberry ales that I have tried. Toasty malts dominated in my opinion, blanced by light hops and blueberry in the finish. Light bodied. A good summertime brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted at Buffalo Brewfest: A very faint hint of blueberry in the aroma and flavor. Other than that, it was a decent pale ale. The blueberry ale was very popular with the ladies at the brewfest. It was decent, but nothing spectacular.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at Empire Brewfest. Blueberries in aroma, but not overpowering unlike most beers like this. Not shabby. Transparent blonde with white head. Hints of blueberry to start, then nice bitter hops backing it up. Sort of watery and bland after that. This has some potential. This isn’t too cloying, just needs a little more help on the backside.

2.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [growler] Pours a pale golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of freshly baked blueberry muffins. Initial sweet blueberry taste with a very odd followup of dry hops mixed with stale barley. Very unpleasant and dry aftertaste.

Nice pale orange colour, insanely blueberry smell! Great blueberry taste, not much else though! (This rating is from early in November 2002 found on my palm) I'll add more to this later if they have it on tap again!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly hazy gold w/ tan head. Blueberry aroma w/ white pepper & caramel in the background. Soft, medium body. Spicy, almost flowery, flavour. Blueberries are evident, coming through mostly in the finish.
