3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
GABF 2005. I’m a sucker for a fruit beer when it seems as though the fruit addition is non-artificial. And that is what I got here. Pale gold with a frothy, whipped egg-looking white head. BIG blueberry aroma, very fresh, you can almost picture the little blue berries with their slightly frosted skins. Fresh blueberries carry well into the flavor, with some sweet malted milk balls - it’s like drinking a blueberry pancake. I really fell in love with this.

Sampled from bottle, gift from Staleyiv. Pours a brilliant gold with a lasting white head. The aroma of this beer is by far its most unique and enticing feature. The blueberries and bready malts grab your attention immediately and invite you to take a taste. The flavor is balanced and the finish is clean and dry for a fruit beer. I appreciate the fact that the fruit is present, but it is not syrupy sweet. The very low carbonation might make one think that the body is lighter than it is. A very good fruit beer.

Smells like blueberries and flowers. Blueberry in flavor but not as much body as I had hoped. More flavor is apparent in the after taste though. Not my most favorite Sweetwater brew but it is still good. This is a good summertime beer.

No head, light color, not really much to look at, but is a good, refreshing beer, especially on hot summer days in Georgia. Tastes like blueberry pancakes, not overdone on the fruitiness. Some subtle flavoring, not just a fruit beer. Very nice little number.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Flowery blueberry aroma. Light golden yellow with little head. Light blueberry malt flavor - strong but not cloying - pleasant without becoming a sorority girl beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 7/20
The Blue is a very underappreciated brew. The blueberry flavor prompts many to call it a ’girlie’ beer. To the contrary, the flavor is not overpowering and compliments the overall quality of the Sweetwater style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale gold. Billowing, bubbly, white head. Nose is all blueberries. Blueberries are the dominant flavor with an underlying, crisp balance of malt and hops. Clean finish. This actually would be very good at breakfast. Light body. Very good.
