GABF ’07. Pours clear amber with an average, fizzy, off-white head, lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (hay, straw), light hops (grass), light yeast (earth) with notes of blueberry. Light bodied, thin texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. AirForceHops (7793) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Tod gave us a nice tour yesterday. This one is brewed with real blueberries, no artificial flavors or additives. No over- powering berry smell, like some other blueberry ales I’ve had. This is what I would call high end for it’s style. Very good summer drinker! swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Berry colored pour. Fruity/ berry aroma. Decent blueberry flavor, seems genuine. A nice summer fruit beer

Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 7/12/13

Aroma: A nice mix of bready and caramel malts, grassy hops, and, of course, blueberry
Appearance: It pours a ruby-orange color, with a small head and some light lacing
Flavor: The taste is much the same, the blueberry is present, not fake, and doesn’t overpower
Palate: It has a light but not watery feel to it, it is clean and easy drinking
Overall, this is a tasty blueberry beer. Anytime you are in Maine/NH in the summer you see a lot of blueberry beers. Some of them have all the fake blueberry flavor and nothing else, some of them have a nice, fresh blueberry feel that doesn’t overpower everything else. I prefer the later category. This one is one of those.
Poured my portion into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a ruddy semi-dark brown color with some sly blue hues to the edge of the glass. Finger’s worth of white foamy head dissipated at a nice pace. Sly lacing.
The aroma centers around the blueberry with a sly sweet crust like a pie sliding in underneath.
The flavor yields the same sort of fruity blueberry sweetness, subtle tartness from it. Sly sweet to tart blueberry aftertaste with finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Gentle smoothness coming from a low carbonation.
Overall, nice refreshing blueberry ale, good for the Summer months, probably only have again then.

Pours murky blue tinged brown into a snifter. White head quickly recedes to mottle surface. Mild blueberry aromas. Dry with sweet blueberry upfront turning to a hint of cobbler and earthy skin and seeds in the medium length finish. markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2012
On draft at Portsmouth Brewery. Pours a clear amber with red highlights. Nose is blueberry extract, lots of sweetness, and a bit of caramel. Flavor is similar- blueberry extract, some malts. Light to medium in body and not really my style. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2007
2nd of my 10 tasting flight @ Portsmouth. Wouldn’t call this retired as it is available in both bottles and on tap at the brewery as of mid august. Pours slightly red with a lil’ ring of bright white head. Nose has a little bit of fruit. Taste is sweet and muddy, overall not so great. keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Decent but not great. Not much blueberry in the aroma. mostly malt and caramel. Same with the flavor. Just a faint blueberry essence. oteyj (2138) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 5, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Reddish purple brown pour with a small white head. Bready malt and juicy blueberry nectar is pretty much all one will find in this summer quencher. Not overly complex of mind blowing, but great for what it is. Light body with a juicy finish.
