3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass
The color us a hazy orange with a finger of foamy white head and just the slightest of lacing left on the glass.
The smell has a nice blueberry aroma that also teases at a slight orange twang. Really fruity in the nose and promises some touches of raspberry or strawberry too.
The taste is blueberry right at the start with a crisp sweet malt that swings through the palette quickly without pushing off any berry flavor. Once things get toward the end the bitterness makes an appearance and hits leaving a slight smack on your tongue.
The feel is light with a great drinkable feel and makes for a good summer drinker. The crisp body carries some of the sweetness along and keeps things interesting.

A little surprised at the strength of the blueberries. Iím not a blueberry guy, but the taste works perfect with the beer.

Pours clear piss color with medium white head out of bottle. Pretty good aroma of blueberry muffin. Flavor of blueberry with a light wheat beer taste. Not a great beer but not gross either.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
10th July 2014: part of a mixed pack of Samuel Adams stuff bought by my son-in-law and drank on his balcony in Newport Beach. Not my cup of tea! Slight haze to the pour, golden with a short lived white head. The name gives the flavours and aroma away somewhat: blueberries (or a syrup of said fruit) infused with a base lager that fails to blend with itís bedmate. Sorry, not good. Not even refreshing or thirst quenching.

Lots of artificial blueberry here, almost overwhelming. Very sweet and syrupy mouthfeel.

Way too much blueberry. Not good blueberry. Fake stuff. Like cheap blueberry muffins.

bottled - not very good. Tasted like it has artificial blueberry flavor added. I expect more from Sam Adams. On the other hand, probably only their 2nd beer that Iíve had that I didnít like.

Itís tasty, not an everyday beer but a good summer occasional beer. The blueberry is very light so itís not fruity. Otherwise I like the aroma!
