Amber gold color. Smells of blueberries and yeast. Not much head, but delicate lacing (plastic pint glass). The start is grassy, passing through confusion, but the end, which persists, is blueberry. The hops tend to get lost in the fruit. Not so bad. Interesting. But buy another six pack?

Bottle: Pours a faded copper color with a small fizzy head. A strong aroma of blueberry and background of hay and hop. Flavor has gone flat from extensive shelf life but maintains a grain and hay flavor with artifical blueberry. I couldnt imagine this being that good even if it was from a fresh bottle or keg.

Pour is clear ruddy amber with a thin white head...smell is blueberry, with an unpleasant warm soggy malt (like when you go to a brewery while they are brewing) smell...taste is bright, with some strange malty flavors, but the blueberry being acidic and metallic...blech...

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 4, 2006
Draught. Clear copper color with thin white head. Pleasant blueberry aroma and flavor. Slightly sweet. Not cloying as some fruit beers are. Crisp, effervescent, and very refreshing.

Reid (1804) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Nice looking dark amber beer ,with reddish tones , small off white frothy head. The aroma is quite nice , nice strong blueberry aromas that seem natural and fresh, some toasty malt aromas too underneath. In the taste the blueberry is not quite as pronounced as in the artoma , but there is a strong malty sweetness then the blueberry comes through at the end of the mouthful. Quite nice on the palte , long lingering fruity aftertaste. A good attempt at a refreshing, summer fruit beer. Not bad at all.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2004
Dark straw colored, with medium head. Slight hops and blueberry aroma. Tastes a little like blueberries. Slightly hoppy, acidic, and thin at the end. Not bad.

papajohn (1248) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Golden amber color with a medium off white head. Nose is sweet with a wiff of blueberry. Flavor is light and sweet again with a hint of blueberry. Finish is lightly acidic with a moderate spicy hop bite. I was suprised, but I rather like this one.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 23, 2003
Bottle. Pours cloudy, amber and slightly blue, (could it be?) with a large off-white head that lasted well. Aroma is heavily blueberries, with caramel malts and some floral hops. Flavor is highly fruity, sweet malts and a tart finish. Medium body and nicely carbonated. A little unbalanced overall but not bad.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2003
Straw hue with quickly disappearing head, no lace. Aroma is blueberry of course, but also detected some aromatic hops and toasted malts. Flavor is bland with the blueberry tasting coy and the characteristics of the ale too subdued. Minor bitter and acidic finish. Thin-bodied with a watery and fizzy mouthfeel. I've had better blueberry beers (Dark Horse and Back Road), this one is on my pass list.
