Bottle. Sweet blueberry aroma. Lively carbonation. Very prominent blueberry flavor with a touch of sweetness. Slightly acidic finish, but pleasingly astringent. I like it a lot more than I expected to. My favorite of the SA fruit beers. (So far.) Would definitely drink again.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of Nov 2015. Yellow pour. Some white head that dissipates quickly. As far as blueberry lagers go it has a nice blueberry aroma and an undercurrent of roasted pale malts to add some stones to it. Light body. The taste tends to lean more toward the toasted malts more than the blueberry but the blueberry definitely gets to show of its pomposity over the other natural beer ingredients. I just don’t get into these types of beer unless it is hot and humid and I’ve been working in the yard.

Bottle from a lazy dog.
Deep golden color with a good sized long lasting bubbly white head. Big blueberry on the aroma, almost too much. The flavor is quite sweet, again big blueberry. Somewhat cloying, more like a wine cooler than a beer. Glad I only bought one.

Poured from bottle hazy golden color with a thin white head. Aromas of sweet blueberry. Taste is similar and is ok for what it takes is.

July 13th, 2013 - The blueberry lager seemed to be popular in 2012, or more popular than one would expect. There’s a certain appeal to the style, and the idea itself. Samuel Adams’ take seems to be an approachable, friendly version that doesn’t let the flavors clash. The taste is sweet and slightly honeyed, with a flavor that puts blueberry forward on the tongue, but is more basic and straight forward on the mouthfeel and overall taste: a clean, crisp blueberry lager that appeals, even if it doesn’t astound.

Rated on 9-14-2013 at Fort Wayne, IN RateBeer gathering) (Bottle) This beer’s appearance is a small white head that is mostly lasting, hazy straw body, very little carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. This beer’s aroma is sweet, tart, and artificial raspberries. The flavor is sweet, blueberries, tart, and sour. The mouthfeel is smooth. This beer is light bodied. Too much blueberry flavor for my liking.

Delicate blueberry flavor. Somewhat sweet. No hops. No malt. Just a simple, sweet, dessert beer.

Not a half bad adaptation of a fruit beer. Nice smooth lager, but not over the top. Solid blueberry taste, but not overpowering. light smooth finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle -
Aroma - sweet blueberries and light hand soap
Appearance - golden body, 2-finger tan head, no lacing, poor head retention
Mouthfeel - light carbonation, light-medium bodied
Flavor - blueberries, just a smidge of citrus, and very light tartness
Overall - the blueberries do not bonk you on the head with the flavor, rather it seemed almost restrained a little. Perhaps a little more sweetness would bring it out more. Decent.

Grabbed a bottle of my brother inlaws beer. Pours gold with nose is blueberry candy. Tastes of blueberries, malt, some lemon, and perfume. Crisp and not too sweet.

As fruit beers go this one is a keeper. Gentle taste of real blueberries and a little bit of lemony tartness while retaining the character of an actual lager. Quite refreshing.
