Deep golden, slightly hazy, average white head. Flowery blueberry aroma and flavour, biscuity malts, dry finish with low bitterness. Nice enough patio beer.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a Samuel Adams glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Blueberries! Ha it reminds me of Boo-berry cereal
Appearance: Kind of hazy, translucent light orange/dark yellow. Nice head retention.
Taste: Kind of a medicine-y blueberry. Less boo-berry cereal and more robitussin. At least at first. It tapers off to a nice sweet blueberry flavor. Maybe I’m just misinterpreting the hop profile in this, but it’s not that pleasant. Sad. I liked Blue Paw more.
Palate: Pretty light, but definite presence.
Overall: Kind of let down with this one. Maybe it just tries to be too much. A hoppy, bitter fruit beer? Not something I enjoyed. Blue Paw was better. I’m sad. I liked this beer’s aroma, and I thought it would be different. Decent brew though.

4 oz. from bottle at a Sam Adams dinner/beer pairing benefit at Old Line Wine’s The Bistro in Beltsville, MD. Very hazy, gold/straw color with an off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of blueberries, honey, wheat and waffles. Taste of blueberries, honey, wheat, mild herbal hops and waffles. Medium/light body and medium carbonation. One of the better blueberry beers I have tasted. It paired well with peppery spicy hot food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sometimes I think my scores for fruit beers are a little high and maybe not really indicative of my level of enjoyment. The reason being is that it is apparently fairly easy to make a fruit beer smell nice and not as easy to make it taste good. Here is a good case in point - smells like fresh blueberries with a whiff of citrus. Flavor is closer to Blueberry breakfast cereal, though. Kinda artificial.

Not bad, but not quite the fruity blueberry flavor you might be expecting. Sunset Wheat has more flavor, but this is more hearty. Decent beer worthy of periodic consumption, not an Oscar-Worthy performance.

From the mix pack shared with Pete. Totally blueberry pop tart. And clean watred down lager. Not all that great, but not horrible. A little like their cherry wheat. Meh.

12 oz. Clear golden with a half inch of lasting foam. Pleasant aroma of blueberry with a squeeze of lemon and a touch of dry grass. Taste is blueberry and toast on the front, with a nice dose of citrus and crisp grass, and a touch of mint on the finish. Light body is smooth with medium carbonation and finishes crisp and hoppy-dry enough to make this fruit beer work well as a summer session beer.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma is blueberry muffin. Bready with dried blueberrys. Taste is medium sweet. Again, blueberry muffin. Medium bodied with a decently thick texture. Lively carbonation and sa long, fruity finish. Overall, not bad. This would be great for outside drinkin.

Pours a light amber color with a white head. Aroma is mostly blueberries with some grassy tones and caramel malts. Flavor is also predominately blueberries with not much else. Only a slight hint of some bitterness on the finish from the citrus hops.
