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.

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?

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!

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.

12-oz. Got this as something of a gag gift from a GF who brought it back from a road trip. She says "this is disgusting. Try it."
Pours clear lmedium amber with a tall, dense, moussy tan head that falls away quickly to film. Not much lace. Smells like some sort of frozen blueberry syrup concentrate. Hits you as soon as you crack it, much less pour it. Big synthetic vibes off this one. Get your nose in it, and it smells like white sugar and dust, maybe some bubble gum.
Attack is watery and sticky (how did they do that?). Almost flat. Cloying artificial sweetener flavor on top of some caramel and a thick blast of blueberry. Tastes like breakfast cereal. Not much finish. I’m already burping up booberries and I’ve only had one sip. I think it’s time this beer got to know my septic tank a little better.

BBB63 (6154) - 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.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2007
Slight artificial blueberry aroma. Like a blueberry puree or some blueberry Now and Laters. Pours amber with a small head. Flavor is a mild blueberry against a regular amber ale. The hops and caramel malt definitley over power the blueberry flavor. It does peak through in the beginning on the front of the tongue, and again on the after taste, but it is still relatively weak. Body is medium. It was ok. Will not seek out, but would maybe have again as a desert beer or something.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 28, 2006
Bottle: Amber color, average head. Nose of light malt and some faint dry blueberry notes, almost like boysenberry. The flavor is like those little dehidrated blueberries in the instant pancake mixes. Thin, dry, so-so. I could use a bit more intensity (dry berrying?) and body. Fun though.

beerguy101 (5287) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 4, 2002
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.
