The blueberries are apparent the moment the cap is removed and burst forth. Pours out a slightly hazed ruddy gold, quick splash of white head that disappears as soon as it appears.
The nose has a bit more complexity for a fruit beer, some grainy malt, grassy hops, a good dose of blueberries, plus some spicy warmth.
That spiciness transfers over into the flavour, some neautral malt up front, reserved blueberries, and some white pepper on the finish. Itís the white pepper that lingers on into the aftertaste as well, not the fruit.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bubbley finish.
I have ambivalent feelings about this one, itís put together pretty well, but for a fruit beer the fruit is quite muted when all is said and done. Not one-dimensional, however I feel a bit cheated in the fruit department. The dry spiciness provides a nice quenching finish though. Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2011
Pint on tap at Fergus & Bix restaurant in Calgary, AB on 05/12/2011. Colour: Redidsh orange with medium white head. Nose: Blueberries, melted caramel, roasted yeast, some leather notes. Taste: Medium sweet, light bitter, light sour. Certainly lives up to its names with blueberry a-plenty but comes off a bit too sweet. Some marshmellow as well as calm malt. Nothing offensive and I do enjoy blueberries. pintbypint (3575) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2010
341ml brown bottle. Golden coloured beer with a small tiny bubbled white cap. Decent sweet blueberry nose. Flavour has a grainy dry malt base with light blueberry notes, sweetness is kept to a minimum. Wheaty finish. Medium carbonation and body. Has a refreshing quality to it, ok for summer. reebtogi (6235) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
341mL bottle poured a slightly hazy golden color with a quick dissipating head and sporadic lacing. Aroma is of blueberries. Taste is light blueberry with light sweetness and mild hops in the finish. A very well balanced fruit beer, rather enjoyable. Some fruit beers just have way too much fruit and this one just right on the money.

Bottle, brought to me by Parksy. Pours a pink-tinted brassy gold with a short-lived white head. Pleasant subtle real blueberry aroma intermingled with clean grains. Lighter palate, balanced equally between clean pale malts and light blueberry juice, slightly perfumey. I think they really nailed this one: a light, easy drinking lager with a real blueberry accent, nothing candyish, nothing fake, and most importantly not overpowering. Iíve always said that blueberry is my favourite fruit married to a lager, and this one is really nice as a summer patio pleaser.

Draft to pint glass
All I get on the nose is blueberries and hay. The colour is pale amber with no head. Blueberries and tangerine off the top. The blueberry lasts but the end is a bit barny. Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
Smells of blueberry on the nose and pours an off copper color reflecting the actually blue berries used in the fermentation. One of the better blueberry beers Iíve had and a great summer beer. cmacklin (1124) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
341 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a small short-lived white head. Blueberry with mild malt aroma. Flavour is sweet with notes of blueberry, malt and wheat. Refreshing, pretty good for a fruit beer. bcBelgianbrew (115) - , British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 10, 2015
Very enjoyable from a growler. A touch of sour, plenty of blueberries on the nose. A summer bbq bevy. Fruit is not artificial tasting. I'd definitely drink this again.

Clear gold with some violet hues capped off with a tall slightly purple crown. Very mild malt aroma and surprisingly a very mild blueberry, I was expecting a punch to the face of sweet fake syrup but it never showed up. Taste like a watered down wheat beer with hints of sweet blueberry what is a good thing. Iím getting mild reminders of egoís but not too much. Beer is crisp and clean what makes this one of the few fruit beers you can drink in mass quantities. Good job Alley Kat this isnít my style but you did very well.
