3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Bottle conditioned. Copper with coarse head. Way over carbonated. I can’t stop burping its so bad. But for a fruit beer the flavor is subtle and the base beer is very simple and clean. Crisp with a hint of bitterness. Tone down the carbonation and I actually might try this one again during the summer.

Light golden color, large head, and intense blueberry nose. Mildly hopped and mildly malted, slightly sweet. Blueberry flavor is mild and subdued. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly sweet and fruity some bitterness.

I’m a sucker for a good fruit beer and I think blueberry blends particularly well. Recommended.

The aroma is choked with blueberries. The flavor, less so. Altogether a nice fruity beer, though I’m not eager for another. But I must admit this was well done. Seems to be a pale ale underneath, as I detect some bitterness.

This is the best fruity beer I have had next to the lambics. Very true blueberry flavor paired up with a light ale. Reccommended for female friends, or if you want to try something a little different.

UPDATED: APR 22, 2003 Pours to a bright golden color, well carbonated with moderate head formation. There’s a sweet flowery aroma with a touch of candy and blueberry in moderation. The palate is very light for an ale with blueberry flavors appearing immediately but not overwhelmingly. The blue flavor runs throughout, bringing with it a touch of prickly spice and just fading towards the finish, while there’s a touch of sugary sweetness in the middle and balancing crisp dryness in the finish.
This is a pretty straightforward blonde ale but the blueberry flavor works really well.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Solid foaming head on top of a clean orange, tan liquid. Bizarre berry/melon aroma not altogether blueberry. An ordinary, slightly wet American pale ale underneath with bits of berry in the mildly hoppy finish.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2003 It’s been almost three years since I’ve sampled this beer, and have never been a real fan of fruit beers, of course I do like the occasional lambic to break the monotony of all those over the top ales.
Translucent golden amber color on the pour with the head modest in size, white in color and frothy in structure, the lace a nice sealing sheet upon the glass. Nose is sweet as one would expect, crisp and clean, start also sweetly malt, and top is middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is moderately acidic, hops pleasant and the sweet blueberry, continues to the very dry finish, drinkable and pleasant enough.
