Hazy light golden with a small, slightly fizzy white head. Aroma is similar to instant blueberry oatmeal - blueberry sweetness atop mildly grainy malts. Moderately sweet flavor with no bitterness. Finish is mildly sweet and a touch sour with more dried grasses and straw. Blueberries are prevalent from start to finish. Interesting, and although this is solidly a fruit beer, it isn’t overly sweet, and the lager backbone gives enough balance that you could have few without getting tired of it.

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.

Sugary blueberry pie scent. Smooth lager, some dry bitterness and mild blueberry. More sugar note than fruit.

I like a fruit beer to taste like a fruit beer. And well this really has a fruity flavor. Aroma is almost artificial like. Taste is very berry. Beer is subtle. Decent mouthfeel. Sweetness is strong. Very nice.

Orange gold color with thin off-white head. Strong blueberry aroma. A little citrus in the flavor, but very much overpowered by the blueberries. Enough hops that you remember your drinking a beer.
