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.

En fut directement de la brasserie à Rochester. Dégusté avec french tickler et Agaguk. Bière de couleur Or clair avec un moyen collet très collant. Odeur de bluets intense, miel, floral, jujube (coté bonbon) et cerises. Gout de bluet très fort qui revient, un petit coté salé, blé et pain.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
5 oz draught sample at the brewpub, mid-October 2006. Pale clear gold with a thin ring of lasting head, no lacing....fresh, faintly tart/acidic blueberry skins dominate the aroma, light underlying pale malt, a touch of honey and sharp grasses....nicely integrated fruit and pale malt character on the tongue, hints of sweet/sour cherries as well as a bit of dry woodiness....gets lightly bitter/hoppy towards finish, some mineral salts, moderate to high carbonation. Not bad.

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.

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.
