I cannot say enough about this beer. One would think when they hear it is blueberry flavor it has a strong fruity flavor. the blueberry flavor is so light you can just make it out. Not overpowering in anyway. Combined with the wheat it is a perfect blend of the 2.
After having a pint at the brewpub I purchased a growler with a Styrofoam cooler and ice to keep it cold. It was kept cold for the rest of my vacation, in a Coleman cooler with ice in the Mackinaw City area of Michigan, all the way to Grand Rapids, Michigan, where I tried another very good Michigan beer, Founders Cerise. I purchased a growler of the Cerise as well.
After Grand Rapids I took the growler’s of beer packed in a cooler full of ice all the way to the Laselle/Peru area of Illinois for a couple of days, then to Des Moines, Iowa for 2 days. Upon returning home to Sioux City, Iowa the unopened growlers were then opened and the beer enjoyed by myself and friends. It was as good as the day I first tried it at the brewpubs.
The address of Tahquamenon Falls Brewery and Pub is: M-123 Paradise, Michigan 49768. The phone number is: 906-492-3300. It is not in Newberry, MI.

First blueberry beer for me, EVER. Actually for a fizzy little drink ,this stuff was OK. Or possibly it was the fact I had my kids in tow (at this nice establishment) and I NEEDED multiple drinks to soothe my jangling nerves? Either way I consumed several of them without hurling all over this establishment. So that’s something, I guess....or not. But one supposes, you could have the BEST BLUEBERRY BEER EVER, by cracking a Blatz and shoving some blueberries in your can/bottle/40 ouncer, and lighting out for Blueberry Nirvana.

On tap at the brewery. Poured gold with a slight blue tint. Aroma was full of blueberries and a bit of tartness. Flavor was a bit overwhelming blueberries and it wasn’t aided by the low carbonation in the beer.

On tap...Gold lagerish looking beer with very little head. Blueberry flavor is OK, but the rest of the malt backbone has a fake Splenda-like fakeness. No balancing hops are detectable. While not as flat as their stout, this one was also undercarbed. Dissapointing.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma is a more authentic tart blueberry skin, with edges of vegetal and a core of jam sweetness. Blends well with the malt sugars. Spicy, as if with andouille sausage. Reminds me very much of Fitger’s Blitzen’s Blueberry Porter. It’s all downhill from here. Pour of heavily hazed peach, with gold fringes. Rim of extremely coarse bubbly white head. No carbonation. This beer is 100% flat. That’s horrible. The flavor is a weak soapy malt candy, with artificial blueberries creeping in from the corners. Again, a fake blueberry soap. Absolutely no carbonation. This beer is 100% flat, fresh from the tap. Palate, sans carbonation, is wickingly sweet. Shouldn’t beer be carbonated? At least the blueberry flavor was quasi-authentic.
