COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A fresh take on a fruit beer. This crisp, unfiltered lager is aged on blueberries for a pleasant blueberry aroma and taste. To take this fruity character in a new direction,we brewed with Tettnang Noble hops for an added subtle citrus note. A delicious blend of flavors with a smooth lager finish.

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

Pours gold with a white head. Nose of blueberry. Light body. Flavor is dominated by the blueberry on some light malts. Not really very good and the blueberry tastes artificial.

For some of their one offs, I wonder if it is the marketing team rather than the brewers who decide whether Sam Adams beers are sold as ales or lagers. I could not tell the difference between this and, say, Cherry Wheat aside from the fruit or fruit flavor added. It is a cloudy orange beer w/ nearly no head. It’s nose is very mild, lightly grainy w/ a touch of canned blueberry pie filling. The taste is very much along the same lines and really very much reminds me of the filling of a Hostess fruit pie, right down to the weird metallic/preservative taste. This is heavy and a bit sweet w/ slightly over vigorous carbonation. Sam Adams is a baffling brewery. They make some excellent beers such as their regular lager and Noble Pils but then turn around and make this absolutely useless garbage beer. Blame the marketing team, blame the brewers, I don’t care.

Aroma is almoat completely that of blueberries with slight sulphur notes. Taste is sweet malts and surprisingly lighter blueberry hints matched with a fairly strong puckering bitterness. Appearance is a hazy gold with a bubbly pearl head that retains fairly well.

No signs of a lager in here, just some borederlind fake blueberry juice. They claim its real blueberries and im inclined to belive them. Quite sweet and sugary, but this is just aldult juice. Meh.

Pours a pale yellow with a thin white head with very little lacing. Aroma is of fresh blueberries, biscuit malts, citrus, and some light pils malts, Taste is similar to the aroma but also has some light artificial blueberry flavor notes. Has a medium-light body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, crisp, refreshing,medium finish. Overall, a decent fruit beer that smells better then it taste but is still a nice summer beer.

bottle. Poured hazy amber with a small creamy white head. Subtle blueberry aroma over grainy malts. Light body, average carbonation with a tart mouthfeel. Grainy flavour with some sweet blueberry mixed in, light and refreshing.

Not bad blueberry flavor with light pale lager body. A bit perfumery and boring but nothing really offensive.

This may have been a month past date and some Sam beers can get bad fast but this sucked. Nice smell of blueberry everything else was downhill
