3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
I got this in the 12 bottle Summer pack. There’s a best by date of August 2014. I poured one into a pilsener yesterday and this one is currently in a pint glass. The only difference is the head in the pint glass as its just slightly larger in the pint glass.
The appearance is a somewhat hazy orange color with a one and a half finger white foamy head that rises a bit and then concaves to leave a gentle rolling white foamy head with some soapy clingy lacing. There is some light carbonation seen rising.
The smell was sweet blueberries, almost reminds me of blueberries in a blueberry pie but without all of the rest of the pie ingredients. Blueberry jam/filling perhaps?
The taste was once again sweet blueberries in a super nice refreshing sort of way. Crisp refreshing blueberry aftertaste with a light watery blueberry finish.
On the palate, it sat light, in fact it sat extremely light, wow, is this beer light or what? Koch, what are you up to with this one, hahaha? Anyways, sessionable - extremely. 5.5% - hmmm...seems way lighter to me.
Overall, blueberry hill lager? Hmmm....well, I’m not sure about the yeast that was used, but if anything if they ever wanted to change the name, they could always call it "Blueberry Session." This could be a pretty good after dinner treat on the deck watching the sun go down.

Office Party: Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is blueberry and some lager smell, with hints of other fruit. Taste is very prominently blueberry. This is kind of sweet. Definitely not one of the worst beers I have ever had.

It has a strong blueberry aroma. The color is a clear pale yellow with a fluffy, thick head. It has a strong blueberry flavor mixes with grass and a sweet after taste. It is fairly smooth tasting and the blueberry and grass taste mixes decently.

Out of 12 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with a thin white head and slight lacing. It is not sweet at all but it has an after bite of blueberry and orange. Good pallate and carbonation. A great summer beer.
