Draft to taster at Arcadia in Kalamazoo. Looks solid; a hazy amberish orange with white lacing. Smells of yeast and blueberries. Tastes like it smells,but more balanced, and with a bit of rye as well. Pleasant on the palate. A solid fruit ale. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2014 Tap: Murky red-copper body with a burnt, gray tinted lazy layer of foam that muddles around on top. Aroma of vague mixed berry sweetness, a touch of dry rye notes & a faint medicinal, vitamin-like finish. Tastes of more light berry, grain, & rye with a heavy hand of super-toasted malt. Cereal grain finish with a light hint of moderate berries. Not getting the medicinal flavors, thankfully, but the berry just doesn’t "pop" or seem very authentic. This is what happens with blueberries.. .Very hard for them to hold their vibrant flavor, meaning it often produces a beer that’s "just okay" in the end. Such is life. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 12, 2013
On tap at HopCat Lansing. Hazy amber with a thin tan head. Aroma of mild blueberries, light rye and toasted malt. Taste is grainy with blueberries, fruit and malt. Okay. wmubronco1992 (709) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Draft at Arcadia tap room. Pours dark pink grapefruit color with a white head. Mild fruit aroma. Flavor is of tart berries. Mild tart mouthfeel. Reasonably drinkable. Not bad, just not something that excites the senses. mikem409 (2026) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - NOV 28, 2011

draft... murky light golden brown, not much of a head at all... the nose is very juicey, almost a bit generic but the blueberries show enough true character to shine through... what I liked about the taste is gone as all the blueberries are replaced with rye, interesting how different the aroma and taste are but a bit off on this attempt dnstone (3404) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Raspberry-like aroma. Deep wine-like red color. Winey-juicy, framboise-esqu flavor. A bit like juicy-juice.
