4oz. sample at the brewpub. I liked this one better than the apricot ale. The flavor wasn’t so potently artificial, plus it tasted like blueberry pie, and I love blueberry pie. I don’t usually go for these fruit beers, but this one was OK. My only complaint is that it could have used a little more complexity with the flavors mentioned in the beers description. The only thing I smelled and tasted was blueberry.

Draught at the brewpub. Hazy gold with a lacy head. The aroma is pure mixed-berry candy. The flavor is also intense berry with some light malt and is pretty dry, somewhat surprisingly. Light bodied. Nice aroma, and somewhat interesting in that it is full of berries without being too sweet.

ON tap at the brewpub. Color was a little darker than average yellow or gold. Aroma of blueberry and flowery perfume. Flavor was also very perfumy and floral, with a good dose of berries. Just ok.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Pale yelllow, lightly hazy. Aroma is blueberries and corn sweetness. Flavor is the same, but the same bad fruit beer perfume that showed up in several beers this day.

DSG (5829) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 5, 2009
(10/29/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Stockton. Hazy pale yellow color. Aroma of artificial berries and some gummy bears. Sweetish flavor with berry candies, fruits, wheat notes and some unpleasant bitterness. Light-bodied.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Draft @ Valley Brew. Pours a bright, medium-golden color; off-white head with good retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Smells like blueberry pie: sugars, blueberry skins, and crust; surprisingly pleasant. Average carbonation. Medium mouthfeel: sweet fruit, sugars, mixed berries, and a very minimally developed malt core; not overly syrupy, or crisp; a touch flabby overall. Medium finish, showing solidly dry toastiness and a lingering mixed berry note.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2008
Hazy yellow. Aroma of Crunchberry Cereal. A little berry essence and a little wheat in the flavor. Finishes with a little zesty citrus.

AgentSteve (1614) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - MAR 21, 2008
At the brewery, pours hazy dark straw with a sweet berry nose. The flavor is simple and sweet, but a synthetic syrup sweetness.

Soapy and sweet nose with soft berry notes. Very light on the palate again with mild soap.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Smells exactly like the tutti-frutti flavored fluoride treatment from the dentist’s office. That’s it. This might be ok in moderation, but this is overwhelming. Flavor improves somewhat, combining a light tartness with subdued bready notes, florality and a wan bitterness. Still not my cup of tea, or berries, but better than some others I’ve had of this ilk.
