12 oz. bottle of Kennebunkport Brewing Co. Blueberry Wheat Ale, from Trader Joeís.

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, itís 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 isnít 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

12oz bottle into a Corsendonk badged tulip on 23rd May 2016, while on holiday in California. Golden pour with a full white head. Blueberry aroma and taste on a wheat base, different and refreshing in the afternoon sun.

This blueberry-infused Wheat Ale has a nice yellow pour. Aroma has a lot of blueberry and crackery wheat malt. Flavor has, you guessed it, blueberry. Thereís also a weird graininess and creaminess from the wheat. Lots of carbonation. Nope. Not my thing.

It sure is a beautiful pour. Aroma leads you to believe the taste will come close to popping a fresh blueberry between your teeth. The flavor is actually there but almost as an after thought...subtle. the foam dies nearly immediately after pour and it seems all carbonation disappears along with it...the result makes a nice glass of beer appear to be the allusion of a glass of wine...no lacing nor any other trace of a foamy head ever existing...trying to figure out if I really taste the berries or if itís just the scent fooling me.

Pours a golden with a beige head. Blueberry cobbler wafts out of the cup (yes, cup--at a beachy bar). Faint flavor of wheat ale and blueberry cobbler. The nice thing is the way it finishes--real blueberry and blueberry skin.

Clear , amber color . Thick , off-white head . Aroma of blueberries and wheat malt . Rather sweet, fruity taste . Light bitterness in the end. Tastes a little bit artificial.

KBC Blueberry Ale has a very thick, off-white head, that dies away sort of quickly, a clear, golden, bubbly appearance, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of an initial strong whiff of blueberry, but that subsides and is replaced by bread with background blueberry. Taste is where this goes downhill- bread, some blueberry flavor, and a bit of a nasty sour-bitterness, backing it all up. Mouthfeel is rather light and watery, and KBC Blueberry Ale finishes mostly dry. RJT

From 12oz bottle, labeled Kennebunkport Blueberry Ale, poured into tulip glass, bought at Trader Joeís as single for around $1.07

Aroma: loads of blueberry, reminds me of blueberry pancakes

Appearance: orange, clear, minimal white head

Taste: medium sweet

Palate: light body, thin texture, sweet finish

Overall: Great aroma, but the taste doesnít match up with the aroma. Definitely a lot of blueberries in there, just something in the taste thatís a tad off for me. Very thin, almost watery. Very clear and Iím not sure thereís any wheat in this ale.

Got a rush of blueberries at first opening. Purple amber color. Flavor has some blueberry, but hop bitterness prevailed.
