2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured out crystal clear pale yellow similar to a pilsner. Faint aroma of blueberries. Tastes crisp and refreshing, but with a funky blueberry perfumy quality that is annoying. Also can taste grainy maltyness. Unfortunately they forgot to put much hops in here to create any semblance of balance. This is definitely the worst from Sweetwater I've had.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale, golden color, full foamy head...for about 30 seconds and then it dissolves readily. Smells like rich, sweet blueberries-but more like a candy flavoring than the real fruit. Aroma dissipates somewhat as it warms. Taste is different from the smell, however. I found the flavor almost devoid of the blueberries so easily detected in the aroma. As a fruit beer lover, I would not recommend this one...I am sure that an ale lover would find it refreshing, but I just found it slightly disappointing after such a lovely aroma.

Excellent aroma of blurberries with some hints of honey and other sweet things. Hazy pale yellow pour. Strong fruity taste inintially leading into a slightly stronger flavor of alchol. Aftertaste is light, carbonated, bluberry juice, sweet. Taste is consistant throughout. Drink this beer very cold, and all your thirsts will be qunched, but if your looking for something hearty and full...this isn't your beer. Decent fruit beer though.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma was predictably dominated by a tart blueberry scent, to the extent that not much else was apparent. The beer poured a hazy golden shade with suspended solids, a large amount of carbonation, and a huge coarse head. At first impression, it tasted like a pale ale with a good amount of blueberry flavor, but within a few swallows, the berry flavor became overpowering. I wasn't sure I was drinking beer after a while. The flavor was very tart, cloyingly sweet, and more like sparkling juice than a beer. This is my first fruit beer, so I don't know if this experience is common to the style or particular to this brew, but I'm unimpressed. It was certainly an interesting experience, but I can't say I'm a fan.

The first few sips felt like biting into ice cold blueberries! Thirst quenching. Its blue the whole way through. I'm new to this fruit beer area.

This was exceptional even for astyle that i don't much care for. I had it towards the end of the evening and it went quite well. It was definitely blueberry from start to finish. I loved it

Pale yellow with a thin, flimsy head. This beer is sort of like a cross between an American Standard, Light Wit and Berry Muffin. It's strange and very chugable. Would actually be very tasty really cold on a hot day.

This one was not too bad and I really do not care for fruit beers at all. This was was very fizzy and golden in color, sour and kind of bitter. Blueberry is very much in the back and quite mellow. I would definitely enjoy this more in the summertime I think, so I will have to come back to it later.
