2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not like a wine or juice like some other blueberry beers. Light colored and cloudy, not overpowering on the fruity flavor.

Beer should not taste like fruit. It should certainly not taste like a dessert. I like Sam Adams, but they should stop placating the hipsters and go back to their roots.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy yellow, short-lived small head and little lacing. Aroma is more lemony, but the blueberry comes through past the gums. Slight carbonation, not to heavy on the fruit, definitely a good beer on a hot day.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tastes like blueberries, milk, and a lager that is a little hardier than standard macro fare, but nothing special. I wish they’d stop trying to be so cute and fruity with their summer offerings and use beer styles with traditional ingredients that are suitable for summer. How about making the 6 beers a lager (SA Boston Lager), a pilsner (Noble Pils), an IPA (Rebel?), a wit bier, a pale ale, and a kolch? Maybe that cool Double IPA (Voyage?) from the IPA mix make. These quasi fruit drinks are not necessary.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a hazy orange-yellow color with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is sweet with blueberries and oranges. Taste has some toasted notes with blueberries. Not too sweet, a good balance. Finish is mostly blueberries. Overall it is not bad at all, better than most blueberry beers.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
What I was hoping for is a nice blueberry beer. Instead, the blueberries seem almost frozen so to speak, maybe artificial. IMO, the beer should beer slightly higher abv and use different hops (how about citra or centennial).

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle at Ft Wayne tasting Sep 14 2013 - Pours hazy yellow with some lacing. The aroma makes me think of purple kool-aid. I guess it’s blueberries but they seem a bit odd. The flavor is sweet with some bluberry. It’s light bodied. The finish is still sweet. The beer is okay, I guess. It’s better than the Porch Rocker, which is setting the bar low.

Great addition to the 2013 summer pack. Blueberry was present but not overpowering. Crisp and refreshing, went well with the Porch Rocker--also in the pack.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold copper color with a vigorous white head that settles to a film after a minute or so. Aroma of blueberry, wheat and some sourness. Medium-light bodied, sour blueberry notes on the side of the tongue. More of the blueberry and some wheat in the finish. Wouldn’t be able to drink more than one or two at time. Would probably be good in summer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy golden with a white head. The aroma has blueberries, minerals, cream and plastic. It has a medium / thin body with fairly gentle carbonation. The taste has lots of blueberries, cream and mild light malt. The finish adds pepper and phenolic spice. Okay fruit beer.
