Not a bad fruit beer. Much better than I anticipated. Tastes like blueberry mini-muffins.

15th beer of the 2004 Montreal Mondiale. Tons of blueberry syrup in the aroma, yuck! Pale yellow, almost no head. Flavour is not much better than any old lager+blueberries. This lacks the subtlety of fine fruit beers.

uff da! very fresh, pungent blueberry aroma. looks like an american standard... maybe a tad bit darker. poor head retention. incredible blueberry flavor. thereís nothing subtle about it, as the description would lead you to believe. thin palate. not very well balanced... just the taste of fresh blueberries. there arenít really any detectable wheat beer flavors. but all in all, refreshing and enjoyable. a blueberry champagne.

smells like a stack of blueberry pancakes, start to finish tastes like blueberry, a beer my g/f could actually drink!! needs more beer flavor.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 11, 2004
A transparent golden yellow color, with a small fizzy head. Aroma is blueberries, taste is blueberries, however, for a refreshing change, the finish tastes of blueberries. Some wheat characteristics and roastiness are notable in the finish, but this one is blueberry start to finish. Pretty one dimensional, but I canít help but find myself liking this. I am a big fan of blueberries, I just didnít think Iíd like them so much in my beer. It's almost like drinking juice (at least that's what I tell myself when I am drinking this with my bowl of Rice Krispies in the morning.)

Bright blueberry syrup nose and flavor. Sweet and candy-like. Too one dimensional, and the "beer" doesnít really play the role it could. Needs some meat to balance things out.

YogiBeera (2472) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2004
Light yellow colour - nearly no head. Huge Blueberry nose - also bananas - kind of sweet. A bit artifical in taste - like a Blueberry woodruff. Suprisingly weak - refreshing with its fizzyness - good summerbeer.

If I wanted a muffin I would have bought a muffin. I expected something with a little blueberry, this was just overpoweringly blueberry. Some toasted malt in the finish but too sweet for me.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2004 What a great blueberry ale. It wasnít as sweet as other blueberry ales Iíve had, and it still has a little beer taste too. If you drink alot of them one night and burp the next morning, it will taste like blueberry pancakes!! Itís great!
