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.

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.

rodolito (163) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 6, 2003
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.

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.

Draft at SLO. Nose of tons of blueberries. Clear amber with a medium white head. Flavor is blueberries and grainy wheat.

I’ve been on a fruit beer kick lately so I picked this up. If it didn’t say blueberry in the name, I would have thought this was an okay amber. Zero blueberry in aroma or flavor for me, but it was still a smooth, drinkable beer. Lots of malt, semi sweet.

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.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - APR 29, 2002
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.

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.

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.
