Doesnít taste like beer so they probably shouldnít advertise it as such . My girl friend likes it and she hates beer. Reminded me of Mad Dog 20/20. Cool purple color though.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Huge jammy blueberry nose...had a red wine quality. almost no head, Deep purple with some amber undertones. Taste is sweet, syrupy, with some spicy hops lingering in background. Effervescent, with a bit of an alcohol burn on the finish. Almost like a extremely dumbed down fruit Lambic, without the sour notes or complexity. Would be particularly tasty with the right dessert. Blueberry cheesecake perhaps? Was quite surprised at how much I liked it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
4/23/08 From the bottle. Aroma is all spritzy sugary blueberry juice. Appearance is a clear red with a moderate retained pink head. Flavor is more a blend of carbonated fruit juice blended with malt. Itís faint but the beer character still shines through, albeit with no bittering. I like this flavor because of a unique winelike fruit character that I just donít find in other fruit beers. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, somewhat round, with low carb texture. I think some might dismiss this as fruit juice, but thereís some underlying complexity here if one pays attention.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a black cherry color into the glass, with a soda head, fizzy, diminishing to trace spot lace. Very blueberry-esque aromas, somewhat natural, somewhat soda like. The flavors are dominated by a blueberry overtone, not necessarily cloying, but a bit sweet for natural tones. Itís almost like the fruit is trying to cover up for the rest of the brew. From the rest I can gather, there is a processed hop back and some cheap red wine hints. The mouthfeel is of soda, syrupy thin. The body isnít really "anything" of notation... soda (again) maybe? Better than typical A-B offerings, but I knew it wasnít a "real" micro when I saw it on the shelf. Somehow I can always spot an A-B in sheepís clothing, and the big "8% ABV" just screamed macro-made, well before I ever got here to check out the reviews.

12 oz. bottle purchased at Central Market in Mill Creek, WA. Pours a violet color, with a purple head. Flavor: Blueberries (duh), but it has too much a Kool-Aid flavor to it. Itís not bad, but not great, either.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear cherry juice color with a cherry colored head. Big fruity aroma is apple juice and sweetened berries. Medium bodied and mildly carbonated. Big apple/berry juice flavor here on a non-deScript malt base. Pretty much a wine cooler minus the big fizz, which makes this more beer like, and more drinkable. Iíve had far worse fruit beers than this.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a red coloer with a small, pink/lavender head, actually some thin lacing. Aroma is of cough syrup, bluberry syrup, grainy lager aroma. Flavor is not good initially, but then it doensít get any better. Yucky syrupy, astringent blueberry, followed by a crappy vienna lager taste complete with husky tastes. The only strength is itís strength, itís 8% ABV is itís only redeeming quality.

This is definately a different taste, but is not too bad. It pours like grape juice and has a very sweet blueberry flavor. Donít let the sweetness full you because a six pack of this stuff will put you out.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
One-dimensional blueberry PopTart aroma - nice enough, but it was all downhill from there. Looks like a red wine spritzer - purple and fizzy. Bad label. The flavor wasnít horrid, it just wasnít beer. Tastes like fizzy, dilute, cheap red wine. Sugar attempts to cover the fotification, but it comes off unpleasantly boozy - like Wild Irish Rose, or other screw-cap wino wines. Clingy sweet, but medium light body. If you canít find Booneís Farm for your hippie friends, then I guess you could pick up a six of this. Actually, this was the same price and adjacent to Sweetwater Blue - do you really need a recommendation as to which blueberry brew to choose? Featured at the Bradfordville Petro.
