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.

Well, it smells strongly of blueberries and it tastes like blueberries too, but in the end this is not so tasty. On tap at the Yard House in Anaheim.

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.

Light pink amber with a nice frothy, silky head. Easy aroma of light hops and blueberry. Easy blueberry flavor makes this quite an enjoyable fruit beer. Lightly sour finish. A tasty session fruit beer.

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.

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.

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.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 3, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2007 Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a brownish/amber color. Aroma is of canned blueberries with a little cinnamon. Moderate blueberry flavor along with a little graininess and a hint of hops. Not bad.

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.
