KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Bottle. Poured a sparkling clear light amber with a small white head that was fully diminishing and had no lacing. The aroma was heavy of blueberry’s and had a mild sweet yeast and a light bread malt scent. It tasted sweet with an abundance of blueberry’s at first and finished lightly sweet of blueberrys and not much else with the flavor only lasting a very short time. Mouthfeel was extremely light in body and watery in texture and had a lively carbonation. Overall nothing more than a blueberry soft drink and not a good one at that.

Apparently quite a discrepancy between bottle and tap ratings. On tap for me. Pours a cloudy amber with a slight hue of purple, and an off white head. Aroma of wheat and blueberries, suprise! Taste of wheat, sweet ripe blueberries, suprise! Light bodied, medium carbonation, nice subtle blueberry finish. This is a simple but actually pretty good refreshing fruit beer. Try on tap if possible, sounds way better than the bottle.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of blueberry, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of blueberries, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of blueberry, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of blueberry, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good robustness and balance of blueberries, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Not too dry after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a nice fruit wheat. All around good balance and robustness of blueberries, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. I would have preferred to see some wheat yeast influence in the flavors for a bit more complexity; but it was still a nicely enjoyable offering.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2015 Pours a gold color. Not a lot of head. Some lacing. Eh, I?m not sure how too rate it. Average, I guess. Aroma immediately from opening is wildly amazingly blueberry. It?s almost nothing beyond the blueberry. It?s hard to tell. It?s very blueberry. Taste is pretty good. It doesn?t really taste like blueberry so much. I think the blueberry flavor actually comes from the aroma. It reminds you of blueberry as you drink it. I think of a blueberry muffin as I drink it. Blueberry from the aroma, and grains in the muffin. I?m not so convinced that it?s a wheat beer. It has many aliases, so I can?t be sure. Mouthfeel is medium. It?s not real heavy. It?s a little wet on the finish. It?s quite refreshing. It does leave a little blueberry aftertaste. It?s sweet all the way around. If you like fruity beers, this is your thing. It?s somewhere between beer and wine cooler. It?s good. It?s different. I?ve never had a blueberry beer before, so this was different. I like this pretty well. I would do this again, but more importantly I would try something else from this brewer. It?s worth a try!

BrewMaster0912 (49) - Marysville, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Pours a clear yellow with very little foam and medium carbonation. The scent is very sweet but you can smell the hops just a little bit, it smells like blueberry. Taste is sweet but not overpowering but you can also taste the hops in it. The aftertaste is also sweet and a bit dry.

Bottle to shaker glass, pours hazy golden, one finger white head. No lacing, little retention. Aroma of blueberry. Taste is sweet, slightly sour. Light bodied, lightly carbonated, mouth feel is thin. Finishes slightly sour with lingering blueberries. Not a fan of this type of brew.

yngwie (15380) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle. As Kennebunkport Blueberry Wheat Ale. A lot of blueberry escapes the bottle immediately after popping the cork. It’s an almost clear one, golden in color and with a small, off-white head. The aroma is rather bad I think, it almost feels like puke someone tried to hide by spraying it with perfume. It’s much the same in the flavor, but slightly better and more blueberryish. Medium body, quite dry and with a soft carbonation. Puke-like, perfumed blueberry finish. Sure a beer I couldn’t finish. 150610

Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, cloudy darker orange color with white head. Aroma notes of blueberry and pale malt sweetness. Taste adds blueberry syrup and cracker malt sweetness. Light body, moderate carbonation, sticky with fruity finish. Another refreshing Sea Dog fruit beer.
