3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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. It’s got a decent wheat undertone, which complements the blueberry. I don’t know if I would seek this out for myself, but I also wouldn’t 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.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.
It’s 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.

Blueberry seemed artificial... very strong nose but little berry flavor. Slight spiciness to an otherwise average light ale

Dark straw color with a tall, fluffy white head. Blueberry cheesecake aromas, with candied berries, cream and a hint of wheat. Lots of blueberry flavor in this one. There’s an interesting backdrop of a cream ale/kolsh/american wheat. Dryness in the finish seems to come from the fermented fruit. Not a great brew, but it works for what it is.

Thanks to Matta for another interesting beer from his storehouse down in Tampa!
Sea Dog pours out a large creamy off white head over a clear medium yellow body. Great looking beer.
The aroma delivers what the label has me wanting, blueberries! Nice floral aroma with fresh blueberries. The palate is bit weak, light with some astringent dryness towards the finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
aroma of funky, fruity cheese, mustiness, and gym socks. flavor of light blueberry creme cheese, wheat. the palate is easy, but it seems to want to turn a bit sticky. eventually, the aroma is just blueberries, which is nice--so, let the air work its magic. anyway, lively appearance, but the bubbles are big, and look like caviar. not bad.

on tap at MacGrady’s, pour is a clear gold color, not cloudy as i expected from wheat beer. the aroma is sweet and strong with blueberries. the flavor was more understated, as the blueberries were more of a background taste to the crisp sweetness of the wheat. the body was thin and light, and was very crisp and refreshing. not a bad wheat beer, but i wanted more blueberries.
