22oz bottle. Pale golden color with a small white head. Pungent blueberry concetrate smell. Muted malt flavors, with a large sweet blueberry component. Some graininess and residual tart and chemical taste in the finish. Mouthfeel is light medium with a cloying stickiness. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Bottle. Pale golden straw colored with white head. Fruity/malty aroma. Malty flavor backed by some fruitiness. Wouldn’t be able to tell it was blueberry, but there is some tartness. Medium bodies and thirst quenching. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2005
This was a great blueberry beer. I have for years tried to make one and can not get the flavor. They did it. The blueberry was there it had a great flavor I loved it. The beer had a great fresh flavor the overall brewing was flawless. Great Job Guys!!!! mustangjoe (183) - redondo beach, California, USA - AUG 20, 2005
Bottle. A very dull yellow color with a nice white head that did not last very long and left absolutely no lacing. The aroma had a faint blueberry smell to it, but a peppery spice smell dominated the aroma. In the flavor, the spicyness dominated once again, with a slightly sour blueberry taste coming through at the very end. Not exactly what I was expecting or hoping for. 0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Bottled. Straw colored, hazy, 1" tall white head of large bubbles that you might expect on a sparkling cider, quickly dissipating and leaving no lace that it ever existed. Aroma. Well. If ever they made a blueberry sweet-tart, it would smell like this beer. Other comments include "morning dew on a field of wildflowers." What I’m thinking here is that it reminds me of a creek in Coos Bay, Oregon, where humidity is tremendous, the air is cool and there are a lot of grasses, flowers and berries about--it smells somewhat like this place. As it warms, there is some toasted caramel. Blueberry smells artificial syrup--like the stuff at I-Hop. Body is medium to light. Carbonation is effervescent and foamy, leaving behind a dry finish. Flavor is dominated by yeast--very clean yeast, no exciting funk--which entales a moist leather pouch buried in wet soil with grass growing in it. Finish is sour, or in the case of blueberries, assertively tart and pleasing. Blueberry flavor is light and throughout the experience: it could be called the backdrop, or the canvas of this painting. Flavor is reminiscent of champaigne. Overall, very refreshing, simple, enjoyable--something you could drink a LOT of--and fairly boring. I expected more blueberry character. Note on the bottle says "all natural flavor with artificial coloring added." Adding color to make it straw colored seems most pointless to me. Worth a try on a hot day.

humoungous blueberry aroma, but unfortunately, not much transferred into the taste, which was a little malty and watery, with an unpleasant metallic aftertaste, despite being poured from a bomber. the pour was a cloudy gold color with very little white head. this was an ok beer, but after the nose, the flavor was a major let down, add the strange aftertaste, and i was not thrilled. mjg74 (3106) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Pours a hazy white color, loooks kind of like a wit. Strong blueberry aroma, smells really sweet. Very light beer. Tastes like an American wheat. Only a slight hint of blueberries in the flavor. No finish at all.

Very big on the blueberries in the aroma. Fades into a slight wheaty aroma. Pours a very hazy yellow, almost like a skinky Bud Light. Maybe not. Flavor is not what I expected, and it’s not a pleasant surprise. Very spritzer-like mouthfeel, kinda like an egg cream. Is this Calistoga? I’m angry, and you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry. kungus (15) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 23, 2005
I was expecting it to be a little wackier...It’s too bland. The blueberry flavor is noticeable, it lingers a bit, but it seems a bit thin and almost sour. I think I prefered San Luis Obispo’s blueberry, but it’s been a while. NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2005 You’ll never believe this, but this beer tasted like a decent pale ale with blueberries mixed into it! Not bad if ya like blueberries. My wife sure does which is why I have had WAAAAAY too many blueberry beers for my liking.
