3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from the summer pack to a red solo cup due too kitchen remodeling. I thought blueberry was a place, didnít expect it was a fruit beer, bleh. Aroma of artificial blueberry. Flavor is similar, also similar to the sea dog beer. Finishes sweet and artificial.

You can really taste the blueberry in this. Good finish and all around good beer.

Purchased: March 25, 2013

Misc.: Enjoy by Aug. 2013
Poured a honey straw hazy color with two fingers of bubbly off-white head. Some sporadic lacing and fog on the sides. OK retention with some thicker spots on the way down.
Smelled a very potent whiff of blueberry and grape. Some artificial sugar smell as well, but thatís about it. Best part of the beer though.
Taste wasnít as strong as the smell. Like the nose, it was almost strictly blueberry. Also some grape juice. Faint hops, although I couldnít figure out which type. Not as good as Iíd hoped.
Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Long, fruity finish.
Not as a good as Iíd hoped and Iím a sucker for fruity beers. Good for the summer, but I wouldnít have it again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden straw with a pure white lacing. Aroma consists of blueberry, cereal and is somewhat floral. Some bitterness in the flavor. Crisp lager palate. A blueberry beer that reportedly tastes different than other blueberry beer, but tastes exactly like every blueberry beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Really special taste and really good it was too. Decent with fragrance in it. The taste is really good. The aftertaste is left for a while. Very much the flavor of blueberries, which I love. Why would not this beer get better grades?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, courtesy of Boston Beer. Thanks! Pours a slightly hazy, deep golden color; fine-bubbled off-white head with reasonable retention and nice lacing. Fresh blueberries and blueberry syrup in the aroma (definitely fruit-ish forward), followed by a modest display of spicy/mineral hops and a lean and toasty core. Mouthfeel is generally on-point (medium-light body, medium-high carbonation), though thereís a cloying element from the blueberry syrupiness; a welcome dose of spicy and herbal hop character in here, but the fruitiness is a bit much and, again, has a this-should-be-atop-pancakes quality; that zesty core bitterness and dry, nicely toasty and cereal-like finish help out a bit.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours light copper with a medium, white head. Aroma of blueberries and bread. Starts nicely with a natural blueberry and bready flavor. The middle to end of the beer is completely horrible. Flavors of garbage, rotten grains and cardboard.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle from the Beers of Summer 2013 sampler case. Iím having a hard time with the low ratings as I enjoyed my sampling very much. A very rich and natural blueberry taste is very evident and the lager base is quite crisp. Clearly, this beer deserves a second opinion.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy straw with a quickly dissipating but rocky white head. Aroma is full of juicy blueberries. Lacks a solid malt backbone, coming across as merely a vehicle for the blueberries, rather than a beer with some blueberry character. Strangely, a snippet of hop bitterness peeks out in the aftertaste, but the hops are largely undetectable beforehand. Medium bodied with a lightly sweet lingering berry finish. Not bad, and certainly not out of place along with some outdoor summer fun.
