2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Brian’s suprise birthday tasting. Pours pale yellow without much head. Aroma of slight blueberries and sweet malts. Taste is a bit grainy with some notes of slightly artificial blueberry syrup sweetness that lingers on the palate. This wasn’t really my thing.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma of blueberries and pears, very sweet like a doughnut. Hazy amber pour with a lingering thin white head. Decent lacing. Thats about the best of it. The flavor is blueberry with some hoppiness in the ginish but it doesn’t really work. Slight metallic flavors and the palate is crisp then smooth in the finish. Probably one of Sam Adams worst releases for me.

In Springfield. "Huh, blueberries." Was the reaction around the table. While seemingly well executed, blueberry beer I guess doesn't work for me personally. Serving: bottle

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy amber with minimal head and little lacing. Aromas of blueberry bagel, citrus, dark fruit, cider, and grapes. Taste is not as bad as I thought it might be. Faint blueberry taste with a bit of hoppy bitterness to offset the fruit. An alright offering.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Orange-amber, with a thin, but rolling head of white foam. The blueberry extract aroma wafts several inches from the glass, like a wrapped blueberry muffin with an eternal shelf life. The blueberry flavor in the drink is somewhat more subdued, but this is another SA effort that I can’t really get into at all, and I feel like BBC is starting to cater tot he wrong crowd.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lager. Immediately hit with aroma of blueberry. Flavor is blueberry, blueberry muffin and a bit of bitter from the hops. Pretty good.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle from Sam Adams’ variety pack.
Ar: Pretty much just blueberry, clean blueberry flavor but not too much going on.
Ap: Pours a slightly hazy gold with a 1" frothy head. Great lace.
T: Fairly sweet up front, almost cloying; moderate blueberry flavor but not completely overpowering. Finish has a mild bitterness and slight grassiness.
P: Medium-thick and somewhat syrupy. Mild to medium carbonation.
O: Smells nice and looks nice at first glance, but this is just too sweet and too syrupy to be refreshing.
