2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I have read many of the reviews on this beer and I wonder how many of you have either not really had this beer, have no clue what you are drinking, or work for Sam Adams. I am being very generous with this rating just in case I am completely off base, but this beer is bad. Very artificial tasting. The best thing about this beer is the aroma. It smells much better than it tastes. Little to no head which takes away from it’s appearance. It has an average tartness for a fruit/blueberry beer but the artificial after-taste lingers in the back of my tongue and I can’t get rid of it. I like the hint of toasted almonds but it is so overpowered with the added artificial blueberry taste that I can’t rate it any higher.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 No too tart or too sweet. Starts a little grainy with the blueberry flavour that starts mid way and move to slightly tart at the end. Very crisp, but perhaps a tad artificial. Could have again.

Not bad for a fruit beer, Blueberry aroma is sort of overwhelming, but if you like that kind of beer, it probably isn’t that bad. The blueberry taste is more subtle and balanced with the hops, Overall, I thought it was a pretty good beer and will probably try it again.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Totally a fruit beer, and what should you expect? Blueberries prominently in the aroma and flavor. Blueberry syrupy pie, some grainy background flavors (not quite a pie), and then some citrus and white fruit elements too. Body was moderate for the style as was the carbonation. An ok fruit beer.

Bottle: enjoyed this a lot more than I anticipated. Very nicely done with the blueberry remaining prominent, but not becoming overwhelming. Very nice and fresh tasting... Perfect for a warm afternoon.

12oz brown bottle. Golden, quite hazy. Creamy and tall white cap. Nose has sweet blueberry. Taste has grains and blueberries, thankfully not too sweet in the mouth. Drying end, lots of carbonation. Thankfully not too cloying, but still not very appealing.

Pleasant blueberry and malt aroma. Flavor is light, sweet blueberry, and slightly bready malt. Light body, smooth texture, quick finish. High co2.

At a party had to drink from bottle. Poured some into cap looked copper in color. Aroma was blueberry taste was blueberry there was way too much blueberry. I got nothing else in the taste at all but blueberry. Not impressed and I like blueberries but maybe not in my beer.
