Tap. Amber pour, white head. Blueberry and wheat on the nose. More blueberry on taste, but not over the top. I really enjoyed this.

A pleasant surprise. Amber colored body with faint white head. Faint aroma of cooked blueberries. Where the aroma was lacking, the flavor more than pickes up. As the beer warmed, an increasingly rich blueberry flavor cuts through the wheat. Solid.

Brown Amber Coloring with White Head. Nice Blueberry Aroma..Like Smelling Blueberry Muffins or Pancakes Right out of the Oven. Medium Mouthfeel. The Flavor is Quite Nice. Bit of a bitter/sweet Zip on the End but Overall a Nice Sweet and Malty Blueberry Flavor. The Blueberry Never Gets Over the Top and Balances Quite Well. Very Enjoyable.

Not sure what happened to "Liberty". I’ve had the Life and now the Pursuit of Happiness. Give me Liberty or give me death! Very nice, faint blueberry pancake aroma. Sweet. Dark reddish brown in color. No blue in the color. Off-white head that his somewhat lasting. Not much lace, but the coloring is nice. Sweet, malty palate with a nice hop zing. The commercial description says that they inserted blueberries in the recipe where hops would normally reside, but I detected a very well balanced palate with a decent hop profile. Really tasty. The blueberries are not overdone at all, but clearly there. This brew truly put me in my "happy" place and therefore, lives up to its name.

Dark amber color with a medium head. The aroma is an outstanding mix of malt and blueberries. Very much a dark and earthy fruit. The same is true in the taste, but the blueberries really fade out and are barely noticeable. It becomes a good session beer with a little malt and a great aroma.

I am sad to say the only way this beer delivers is on aroma. The blueberry is very prominet here. The rest of the beer has little to offer. It looks like a plain, dark gold lager. The flavor has a hint of blueberry, with the standard Town Hall flavor. The after taste is of malt. I wish they went with a sour beer for this one. Blueberries are sour; I like sour beer and so do lots of other people, as evidenced by their decision to retain a lambic on tap for several years. Meh.

An American amber ale, with blueberry essence added, filling in for hops, they say... Clear, coppery amber color, good, thick, creamy-toned head, disappears nearly instantly. Big aroma, projecting the fruit far and wide, from the moment the cap is removed. Blueberries, blueberries, blueberries, yum, yum, yum...nothin’ but. TAste: smooth, and sweet, malt-dominated, with the fruit mingled in every swallow. Medium-bodied, with a light, dry finish. Very easy to drink, and a friend to all who favor fruit beers. Finishes the revolutionary troika of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, "Red", "White" and "Blue" beers, celebrating American Beer Month in July. An interesting idea, well executed. ...although, as I finished my second pint, I eyed my neighbor’s Masala Mama with envy...
