Poured an amber color with a thick white head. Good lacing. Strong berry aroma. Wheat and blue berry flavor. Creamy smooth body. Easy drinking.

a good beer to drink on a hot day, or at a family BBQ. Light and crisp with a taste of blueberries, not much else Decent

This beer smells more like blueberries than it tastes like them. I think this is pretty bad. The blueberries dominate, and the wheat is sort of weak- Iím not into it.

Bottle. Gold bodied with a small white head. Nose is definitely blueberry but seems almost artificial. Smells like Blueberries & Cream Oatmeal before itís heated. Thatís really all the aroma is except minimal maltiness and grains. Itís pretty much as advertised. Wonder if it tastes the same as it smells? In a nutshell, yes. Blueberries, wheat, light malt sweetness and is very creamy and smooth on the palate. Also light bodied and very refreshing. Finish is following the same plot - blueberries, wheat and sweetened malts. Is this good? Itís not bad. Very drinkable and refreshing but more than one would be overkill.

(12 oz bottle) Nice white head which flattens pretty quickly. Clear yellow body. Nice blueberry aroma. Refeshing. Slight tartness balances mild sweetness of blueberries. I like this although Iím not big on wheat beers. Great summer brew.

Not a bad beer. My father-in-law bought this beer while on vacation in Maine, I probably would not have picked this up. Not a fan of flavored beers, but the blueberry was not overpowering, or too fake tasting. Itís got a decent wheat undertone, which complements the blueberry. I donít know if I would seek this out for myself, but I also wouldnít turn it away if offered to me. (Would be delicious in a Black & Blue).

This stuff was like blueberry nut bread squeezed into a bottle. The taste is there, and very well balanced. Sweet, but not overbearing. Met the brewer at a local fest. Suggested a serving at 50 degrees. Excellent indeed.

Medium gold color. My first thought is that of blueberry pancakes. A strong aroma. There is also a hint of honey. The taste is more subtle. It is has blueberries, honey and some bread. The taste of the blueberries is strong, but not overwhelming.

Ernest (6580) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2005
UPDATED: APR 14, 2007 Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly yeasty (dough), with a strong note of blueberry and other berries, light note of manure. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, husky, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Itís kinda like soda pop with some feces in it. Second try after a couple years and still nasty.

Pretty average fruit beer. More berry aroma than flavor. Very quick, dry finish. More maltiness upfront than I would have figured. Okay to drink, not to buy.
