Clear golden color whihc surprised me, great smell just like blueberry muffins. The taste got to me though too fruity and sweet for me.

Dorwart (2451) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Large white head of fine bubles. Little creamy on top. Light carbonation. BIG, distinctive blueberry aroma. Very sweet blueberry aroma mixed in with some stinky dog poop. Light hops in there also. Color is a dark gold. Only a light blueberry flavor with some wheat and light malts. Slightly doughyflavor. Pretty crisp and clean. Lingering blueberry aftertaste that is more prominent than the flavor. Pretty light and refreshing.

Best before 11-2005 bottle consumed 8/13/2005. Pours very bubbly. Big bubbles, no head whatsoever. Golden-cider/apple-juice colored. Smells like blueberry puree, with some hints of wheat sourness/dryness. Tastes like blueberry essence. Dry wheatiness, no yeast or hops. Barely any malt. Sharp, forced, overcarbonation. Touch of honeyish malt on the end, with some light fruit acids. Decent blueberry flavor, with little to no beer aspects. Fizzy, no complexity. Gets more bland as it warms. Filtered, which is a sad thing, to see a filtered wheat beer. Won’t have to drink this again.

KUEric (889) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Bottle: Pours a dark golden color. Not much head, lacing or carbonation. Has a smooth mouthfeel, but the flavor is a touch more syrupy than some of the other blueberry beers out there.

Bottle from EDA. Pours a medium yellow color with a smaller white head that fades to a film rather quickly. Big blueberry aroma that pretty much dominates everything else. Lighter bodied. Blueberry everywhere in flavor with a touch of grain. Fairly pleasant, not for more than one though.

This was like drinking Boo Berry cereal. No, not the Boo Berry flavored milk - that would be just gross; more like the wheaty blueberry nuggets. If you haven’t guessed by now, there’s no mistaking that there’s blueberry in the brew, which I guess is ok if you’re into blueberries. If it wasn’t so gimmicky, I might try it again.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 2, 2005
Golden yellow with a thin white head. Starchy aroma. The flavor is mostly reminiscent of a blueberry muffin than anything, with a grainy, almost bran-like undertone. But somehow I like it OK.

Quite pale yellow body, with a quickly fading head. The aroma of blueberries can be detected while the beer just sits on the table, but it is less attractive up close. The blueberry flavor is somewhat artificial, and not very full-bodied. The finish is also thin and not unpleasant, but not strking either. Overall, an average beer.

notalush (5390) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Clear golden color with minimal head, large bubbles, though - full blueberry aroma, but it seems a tiny bit artificial - thin-flavored but quenching - a tiny bit grainy with a large blueberry presence - nothing very "wheat ale" about it - just the slightest bit of bready malt gives a "blueberry muffin" sort of taste to it - Blue Point’s blue berry ale is nearly identical stylistically, but superior in every respect.

My brother loves this, and he swears it is really great if you have it at the brewery in Maine when it is really fresh. Ithought it looked great — wonderful golden color, good white head, surprisingly clear even for a filtered wheat beer. Nose slightly berried, mouth slightly fruity from berries as well, but not strongly so. Taste was dry and astringent for a wheat. No strong wheat / bread or wheat / spice or wheat / banana flavors. Nice enough.
