COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saranac Blueberry Blonde Ale is a traditional blonde with a kick of juicy blueberry. You’ll notice a light golden haze from wheat malt and oats and a low hop bitterness, which really shows off the fruit. With a medium-light body and fresh blueberry flavor, we’re sure we’ve captured refreshment in a bottle! Cheers!

Reviewed from notes. Consumed July 2, 2012. The appearance has a hazy golden colored body that gave a white, frothy, foamy head that appeared for a good thirty seconds. It left barely any lacing and some fast rising bubbles were seen. The smell had blueberries in front with some wheat in the back. The taste has blueberries up front; and in the back there are some bready malts that came out a bit with some light lemon. On the palate, it sits about a medium, shows no watery quality but leaves a good refreshingness all around. It has a nice sessionable quality to it. Overall, the blueberry comes out pretty strong, but hey I believe thats what Saranac wanted. Its still a pretty good beer that I would have it again.

Tastes like candy blueberry, sulfur, and pale malt. Not really something I'm into.

Malty aroma has a definite overtone of blueberry - and I love blueberries. Pours a typical clear yellow with a decent whitish head. Blueberry dominates, but does not overwhelm, the malty and refreshing flavor. It is a bit sweet, but fruity sweet and not overly so. Smooth, mildly fizzy texture leaves a nice blueberry finish. Good for a summer day - or an early autumn one. Or anytime of year.

Not as bad as I expected. Still a bit gassy. Blueberries abound, in a good way.Hazy pour, slight wheatgrass notes. Okay effort.

While there’s nothing great going in here, there’s nothing a can really rip this beer for. It’s a nice hit of blueberry in both aroma & taste up front. It has a decent hazy pour w/ a white head that leaves some lacing. It’s got alright flavoring & pretty good balance. Not even close to as terrible as I was expecting!

Bottle shared with my wife. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Big blueberries on the nose even as pouring, a bit artificial, but not terrible initially. Soft grain and blueberries. Medium-bodied, grain and more fake blueberry. Tastes like a grainy lager poured over a mediocre blueberry muffin. The kind that look like they have blueberries in them, but then you actually get into the thing and you find out that they’re just blue colored chunks with blueberry flavoring added and not actually blueberries. It tastes like that. It’s not a good thing. Too sweet and grainy on the finish with more fake blueberries. Meh.

Smells of blueberry. Taste comes through with a nice light blueberry flavor. Full flavored and not watered down. Refreshing summer beer with a fair amount of flavor. Would have again for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
