Theydon_Bois (8395) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2014
Keg at the brewpub in SLO, 30/04/14. Clear golden amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is blueberries, light spice, wheaten bread, sugary notes, berry fruit medley. Taste comprises much the same, pretty 1D stuff, blueberries, pale malt, straw, sweet notes. Medium bodied, light spritzy carbonation, crisp clean execution. Ok as fruit beers go, the carbonation level keeps it drinkableand stops it from getting sticky sweet, ideal beer on a tasting flight as I wouldn’t be looking for a whole lot more!

Bottle 8/02 (Old Notes)-Pours a darker golden with a white head. Aroma of blueberries. Taste of the same with some caramel and malt coming in. This light bodied brew is not bad and rather tasty. Was not expecting much.

Light golden pour with a white head. Really strong blueberry aroma, somewhat fake and sugary, but good. A hint of butter and pancake batter, too. Some syrup, perhaps. The flavor has a strong blueberry syrup note to it. Some pale malt, bread, and dough flavors. A bit of butter and sweet sugar. Pretty decent, actually.

Tried at the brewpub in downtown Paso Robles after a day of visiting wineries. Man, the wineries ROCK here. What an awesome day. What a better way to finish off the day than to sit down with a sampler platter of ice cold uber-crappy beer. Well, I gotta admit. This beer looks fantastic, and smells great too. Fresh blueberries bobbing up and down in a sea of yellow-amber water, with a smooth creamy white head. My wife thought the beer was great. Taste is yucky corn-syrup vegetal blechiness, but whatever, I’m happy.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Draught at the Santa Barbara location; listed as only 3.3%abv. Dark gold-amber color with a slight haze. Blast of blueberry in the aroma with some wet straw and grain. Flavors of husky grains and very subtle blueberry. Pretty sweet and full flavored for the strength, and I like that the blueberry is almost undetectable in the flavor, but there is something odd about how prevalent it is in the aroma.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2008
One of my favorite brews to have on draught. Pours a lovely clear amber colour, medium sized white head, and blueberry, floral and wheat aromas and nuances bursting out of the glass

Tap @ the YardHouse. Dark with little head... crisp taste of beer followed by a refreshing aftertaste of blueberries. Great blueberry aroma but does not over power the overall smell and taste of the brew.

Aroma – Great Blueberry aroma in this awesome fruit beer.
Appearance – Deep yellow in color, light head and clear.
Flavor – This had a great light blueberry flavor that added to this beer. It was enough for you to enjoy the beer and the flavor. The blueberry was near perfect in my opinion.
Palate – Had a easy drink feel and a great finish with a slight lingering blueberry flavor.
Overall – One of the best fruit beers I have ever had and I like fruit beers. This was good subtle and not over powering in huge fruit flavor. A great beer. Good Job SLO Brewing.
