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.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

Good blueberry aroma Suprising flavor almost tasted like real fruit. Thought carbonation was pleasant. I think if it had real fruit, it would be an outstanding beer. Nice job.

Truly awful swill! Not at all a pleasant mixture of blueberries and ale. Tastes like someone tossed a few blueberry sweet-tarts in an inferior pale ale, shook it up, urinated in it, and then sold it to me. I'd rather drink Skyy Blue.

This is a gold clear beer. I could not taste the blueberry in this beer. I felt it had more of a peppery taste and you could tell it was from a bottle.

A nice refreshing summer type beer. Taste is dominated by blueberry but the finish is nice and the head is respectable for a fruit beer. Does not have the tart taste that I enjoy from the Belgium fruit beers but still a good beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a hazy yellow/gold with a thin white head. Aroma chock full of sweet blueberries. Blueberry dominated the flavor, with a light malt and faint hop aftertaste. Moderately carbonated (fizzy on the tongue) and moderate mouthfeel. Less blueberry and more of other flavors would make this more appealing to me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Blueberries up the wazoo! a dark golden body with poor clarity is not really exciting. the aroma is bluebarry pancakes, not bad if it is sunday morning but this was monday night and i wanted a beer! the flavor almost had some malt in it but then the blueberries came back to haunt me. they were everywhere, no balance here. at least the body was on the light side and the carbonation was moderate so this scooted out of range of the taste buds farely quickly.

Had from bottle on March 1, 2003
An interesting beer, I picked this one up out of sheer curiosity. How many blueberry ales are there (I'm sure I could search and find out, but this is one of two I know of). The beer poured a hazy yellow (a bit darker than the normal ale) with a normal sized, quickly gone head. The aroma has a strong blueberry scent which is a sweet smell that accentuates the positives in this beer. The beer has a pleasant blueberry flavoring with a slight hint of malt. I'm not a real fan of the fruity beers (other than <a href=ShowBeer.asp?BeerID=1195&FanOfID=5164>Rode Alexander - which to be exact isn't a "fruit beer"). But this one was a pleasant surprise and was easy to drink with a sweet aftertaste. Recommended.
