2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at Fire Station 1. Pours clear amber with a small, purple tinged head. Okay retention. Good lacing. Nose is heavy diacetyl and sugar. Taste is mega diacetyl, sticky old candies, melted toffee. Just a butter bomb. Hints of blueberry go unnoticed. Chemical finish.

Even though there were blueberries floating in it.. It wasn’t overwhelming. It almost tasted like watered down blueberry-flavored moonshine. Nice red color, thin.. not that bad.

Not much aroma. Dirty golden in color. Didn’t really care for this take on the blueberry beer.

Cask at Pizzeria Paradiso, courtesy of RJ - thank you sir! Bright golden, thick beige head. Aroma of very faint and subtle fruit, dirt, dust. Taste is like a dilute lager with bitter fruit. Not very interesting.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Location: On tap at the Brew Pub, 8/16/09, and they put the Blueberries into my glass without asking me
Aroma: Even with the blueberries in the glass I hardly smelled anything at all, light blueberry nose and not much else
Appearance: Clear reddish color, with the fruit on the bottom of the glass
Flavor: Again, faint blueberry and little else
Palate: Thin and light
This beer was really dull, I got almost no flavor, no nose, nothing. I’m not sure if the 2009 was just a bad batch, but it seems others enjoyed it in past years much more then I did this summer.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2009 Draft at the 2009 MD Spring Fest. One of the better blueberry beers I’ve had. Deep orange-brown-purple color. Looks filtered. Dry and fruity, with no syrup taste. Excellently smooth. Garnished with real blueberries at the brewery.

Reddish copper color with a spoonful of blueberries added during the pour. Tart and tangy blueberry flavor, obviously. Very drinkable and surprisingly good, although I drank this after a hoppy beer, and I think that bitterness was still lingering on my palate.

At tap at the Red Station Brew Pub. Poured a medium orange color with a smaller sized head. Aromas of light blueberries. The blueberries were a lot stronger in the tastes. The aromas were on the tart side whereas the tastes where on the sweeter side. Started of sweet and ended lightly tart.

Purplish color with a light purplish/white head. Aroma of blueberry. Tasted of blueberry, lightly sweet, refreshing, but not something i particularly want to drink every day. Plus the blueberries floating around in the beer looked like deer turds.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a reddish amber color (ask for this without blueberries and nasty syrup!) with a small, white head, that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of nuts, caramel, and light blueberries. Taste of wheat, grains, subtle blueberries, toffee, and light bitterness in the finish. Pretty refreshing and tasty.
