JamesCory (54) - Wheeling, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2011
12 oz. bottle of Kennebunkport Brewing Co. Blueberry Wheat Ale, from Trader Joe’s.

Aroma: 3/10: Smells like straight-up Blueberry Pie Filling. And not the good kind, with the real blueberries mixed in to the gelatinous goo, but just the plain gelatinous goo.

Appearance: 2/5: With this being labeled as a wheat ale, I expected some of the typical cloudiness associated with wheat ales. I saw none of it.

Taste: 6/10: It actually tastes pretty darn good. Not great, but better than expected. Better than some of the similar-type beers.

Palate: For what it is, pretty refreshing. Medium-high carbo, relatively light, with a slight oilyness.

Overall: I expected to really hate this beer - on the order of total score <1. But, surprisingly, it’s not bad. Better than "Wild Blue" that you see all over, by AB. I anticipate that this beer would be great after a long yard mowing session... a unique summer beer - something different than all of the citrusy summer beer clones that have exploded on the market. The aroma is cheap-smelling, and the appearance isn’t great; taste is just so-so... but, put them all together and the total is more than a sum of its parts. However - buyer beware - you must LOVE blueberry to love this beer. 8/20

12 ounce bottle from Trader Joes. Pours a clear orange color with almost no head. A big sweet berry nose, sugary. The flavor is sweet, dry earthy berries, sugary, wheat. OK, not very good. Seems to be overly sugary.

Would not have even thought of it, but put in fresh blueberries with this beer in a pint glass and it takes the rating up a notch!

Tasty and refreshing, but becomes bland the more you drink. Fine if you plan on tasting multiple beers in one sitting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong blueberry aroma. Sweet but not overpowering. A bit tart. Silky wheat mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Great warm weather wheat.

after4ever (6055) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2014
12-oz. Thanks, E! Pours a crystal clear medium amber with a loose white head. Not much lace. Mild, fairly synthetic blueberry syrup notes (kind of like IHOP, but lower sugar) with some lightly toasted caramel notes. Watery light body with lively carb. Synthetic blueberry and lightly toasted caramel mid palate, with a long dry finish kind of like diet cola.

Il cane di mare naviga in acque piatte e senza effervescenze gustative degne di nota. Predominano le note dolci e intense dei mirtilli, quelle sì percebili in modo apprezzabile. Niente stona, ma anche niente sottolinea un carattere peculiare.

GTAEgeek (1141) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2014
12 oz. bottle, thanks to Ian. Pours gold, with a medium, bubbly, beige head. The aroma is a lot of blueberries, walnuts, and some light chocolate. Syrupy sweetness, and a faint bitterness. Medium body, sticky, and thick. Overall, this is a strong fruit beer, with a pretty good blueberry aroma, but little balance.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2014 Update 5/15/14 At Gingerman NYC with Eric. Pours crystal clear cider bronze. Aroma is nice sugary blueberry pie, vanilla, wheat bread. Taste is light barley bread notes, creamy vanilla. Finish is stale breast blueberry. 3.5
