I really enjoyed this beer. Me and spkldhenlvr24 had this one together and it was defiantly one of the most unique and complexed beers i’ve ever had. It was full bodied with a large white head with streaks of purple in it. The purple coloring came from the blueberry adadive in it as well as 3-4 fresh blueberries that were in the beer. It was very smooth with no bitter taste and was definatly refreshing. I don’t understand why it is called a pale lager because it is filled with fruit flavors and has no real qualities that would make it a pale lager. I had this beer in Augest 2004 and i can’t wait for summer 2005! To my knowledge this beer is only sold at the Gilded Otter in New Paltz NY but their beers and food are well worth the trip if you have the chance. tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Fresh blueberry beer. Along with a few others, we tapped this keg. Finished the whole thing. Over 600 ozs of beer. Well worth it. The only really truly original they had. Not an amazing beer, but a pretty damn good one. Good for summertimes. beastiefan2k (4191) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Pit sop on the way back from BCTC. So a weird thing happened with this beer. First of all it was listed all the way at the bottom of the beer list, weird for a summer lager. I did not even think about it twice. But my girlfriend found it interested when she read about the blueberries. Heck, I didn’t even get that far in reading the description. So when it comes to the table, it’s a big surprise, well it’s dark, not just dark but black. Now a few things are starting to fall into place. More surprises, it comes with actual blueberries in the glass. Not that you could see them through this dark black with navy tints colored beer. A small white head but I could swear it has a blue hue to it. Aroma is of course full of blueberries and it’s hard to distinguish what’s coming from the berries and what’s coming from the beer. A slight earthy feel to it and fortunately nothing artifical or corny (usual suspects in fruit summer lagers). Taste is surprisingly (another one) not sweet and very, well, beer-y. Good clean lager maltiness, refreshing and crisp. A light bitterness with light fruit acidity. Leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste. SuzyGreenberg (1604) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 30, 2008
sampler @ brewery - left this strange looking one for last; dark brown with long lasting thin white head; decorated by a swirl of purple frosting that i’d have to assume now to be blueberry syrup; aromas are very fruit, some dry malts and cloves; drinks very smooth and yummy with unique fruity flavors and strong cloves; i thought cloves were in the bottom, but they were in fact blueberries; overall, a little on the strong side, but a A for effort CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2009
Sampled @ Otter: Not a fan of fruit beers, but this one nailed it. The aroma is a great blend of blueberries and wheat. The color looks pretty authentic to me, giant berries floating at the bottom. Taste is delicious, not offensive like I thought it would be, although this was a sample size... could see it being a bit much in a pint.

Tap at the source. Pours light golden, clear, white head. It has blueberries in it. One of them keeps going up and down within the glass. Interesting. Aroma is blueberry muffin. Yep. Flavor is crisp lager, blueberry. Actually a good blueberry beer. Way better than like blue point blueberry ale. And the blueberries in it are sweet. I kinda dig it. It’s honest about what it is, that’s for sure. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Oddly this is one of my favorite GO beers. Clear blue color with a blueish tinted white head. Blueberries floating and sinking in the glass. Aroma is light with some fruit and grain. Taste is smooth and sweet and noticeable blueberries. Crisp and clean. Not bad and fun. zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2010
unique color. looks like dirty water - dark but translucent. Strong, delicious blueberry flavor and arouma. Lager yeast is subdued and actually balances the sweet blueberry and malts well. pretty tasty blipp (9929) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Draft. This shit is purple. Light purple, but definitely purple. I guess that’s what happens when you use real blueberries. The flavor has natural blueberry flavor, low sweetness, a clean grainy base, and some very light hops in the finish. Good stuff. spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Kinda confused I tried the summer beer but, the only rating on this has no description?? Good summer beer. I think when more people rate this it will be considered a fruit beer. Great blueberry aroma. Appearance was a grey, hazy mix with slight blue hue. Flavor was full of blueberry. Solid beer from New Paltz. More raters should try!
