COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A fresh take on a fruit beer. This crisp, unfiltered lager is aged on blueberries for a pleasant blueberry aroma and taste. To take this fruity character in a new direction,we brewed with Tettnang Noble hops for an added subtle citrus note. A delicious blend of flavors with a smooth lager finish.

Pours clear piss color with medium white head out of bottle. Pretty good aroma of blueberry muffin. Flavor of blueberry with a light wheat beer taste. Not a great beer but not gross either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

10th July 2014: part of a mixed pack of Samuel Adams stuff bought by my son-in-law and drank on his balcony in Newport Beach. Not my cup of tea! Slight haze to the pour, golden with a short lived white head. The name gives the flavours and aroma away somewhat: blueberries (or a syrup of said fruit) infused with a base lager that fails to blend with itís bedmate. Sorry, not good. Not even refreshing or thirst quenching.

Lots of artificial blueberry here, almost overwhelming. Very sweet and syrupy mouthfeel.

raymow (811) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2014
bottled - not very good. Tasted like it has artificial blueberry flavor added. I expect more from Sam Adams. On the other hand, probably only their 2nd beer that Iíve had that I didnít like.

Itís tasty, not an everyday beer but a good summer occasional beer. The blueberry is very light so itís not fruity. Otherwise I like the aroma!

Pours gold with a white head. Nose of blueberry. Light body. Flavor is dominated by the blueberry on some light malts. Not really very good and the blueberry tastes artificial.

For some of their one offs, I wonder if it is the marketing team rather than the brewers who decide whether Sam Adams beers are sold as ales or lagers. I could not tell the difference between this and, say, Cherry Wheat aside from the fruit or fruit flavor added. It is a cloudy orange beer w/ nearly no head. Itís nose is very mild, lightly grainy w/ a touch of canned blueberry pie filling. The taste is very much along the same lines and really very much reminds me of the filling of a Hostess fruit pie, right down to the weird metallic/preservative taste. This is heavy and a bit sweet w/ slightly over vigorous carbonation. Sam Adams is a baffling brewery. They make some excellent beers such as their regular lager and Noble Pils but then turn around and make this absolutely useless garbage beer. Blame the marketing team, blame the brewers, I donít care.
