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.

Had at the new Santa Barbara Downtown brewing co.,which took over Slo brewing.This beer had an unnoticeable aroma.Color typical amber beer color.The taste was quite surprising at first.It had a subtle blueberry taste,which didn’t overpower the beer.I think what ruined this beer for me is they used a too heavy of a bodied beer.The beer taste was too strong for the blueberry taste.I think a good pale ale would be a better match for this blueberry beer.Not bad though,just could have been much better.Nice concept.Will probably drink again.

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.

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.

Decent head, pours in hazy amber in color. Didn't like the aroma of Blueberry, didn't like the disturbing taste of blueberries. But thats just me

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.

Incredibly surprised. Didn't realize it was bottle conditioned prior to opening it, so there are remnants on the carpet. Party foul boys and girls. Nice sweet blueberry nose. BLueberry flavor is prevalent in the front. Fades in the middle and is just an unassuming standard at the end. Very Nice.

One of the tastiest beers I have had yet. Just a hint of blueberry does the trick for this scrumptious ale!

Tap @ the YardHouse. Dark with little head... crisp taste of beer followed by a refreshing aftertaste of blueberries. Great blueberry aroma but does not over power the overall smell and taste of the brew.
