3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transfer from BA review on 4-13-14-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a golden amber color with a two finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades quite fast leaving only a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – As may be expected, the beer’s aroma is big of a nice blueberry smell. The blueberry, while strong is not artificial, but actually smells rather authentic of blueberries. This blueberry aroma is mixed with some aromas of a light wheaty nature as well as a bit of a floral smell, with the overall aroma being very sweet and fruity.
Taste – The taste begins much drier then the nose would have suggested. It begins with a semi-sweet blueberry flavor mixed with a decent sum of a wheaty flavor. These two flavors create a base for the brew, both remaining relatively constant throughout the flavor profile. As the flavor advances some light earthy and floral notes come to the tongue along with some more grainy like tastes. At the end of the taste, a grassy flavor comes to the tongue, leaving a rather interesting blueberry in a field (wheat/grass/hay like) flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin and light with a carbonation level that is rather high. Both are quite nice for the style and make for a more crisp and refreshing brew, which match well the wheat and fruit flavors of the brew.
Overall – A rather easy drinking fruit beer. It is nothing outstanding, but in terms of making for a not overly sweet, but moderately blueberry fruited flavored brew, this one has it right. Not too bad.

Smells like a delicious field of blue berries. Very bland taste, weird combination. Overall decent beer, worth a try.

This is your basic extract laden fruit beer only whoever brewed this seems to have added something a bit of something w/ lactic acid which makes this taste exactly like blueberry yogurt. I like blueberry yogurt OK, I guess, so I can’t say this is all bad but it’s not exactly what I look for in a beer. It is clear golden orange w/ a small head of white, fine bubbles. It is one dimensionally blueberry with just a hit of sweetness and that slight tartness I mentioned. This is light to medium bodied w/ very vigorous carbonation. I am willing to concede this is better than most of its ilk as it really doesn’t cloy but it is still not a stellar example of a natural tasting fruit beer.

A little too strong on the blueberry flavor, for me, but if you love the taste, you will love the beer.

Sea Dog is a fine brewery, excellent brew pub, and a great place to be. Expensive as hell, but well worth the price, even if it is a Fruit Beer.

$3.16 for the bottle purchased in town at a respectable joint. The bar maiden, popped the lid off and threw it into the trash. To pint, pours a mauve-tinted golden brown, with which a whitish head 1 and half fingers in length stood. Immediately remember the cloves, frozen blueberry concentrate, sweat, and bread yeast on the nose, and in my mouth. A slight leathery character experienced by swallow. Quaffable. Flavors were unquestionably a tad on the muted side, however.

Ordered this on accident thinking I was getting the fin stout. Oops. It isn't bad for me hating wheat and fruit beers. Refreshing on a hot summer patio day. Draft at beer market. Blueberry and fruity wheat taste - not much more to say

Nice blueberry ale. Good session beer for a hot day and you want a fruit beer.
