can. Poured with a slight haze, amber-orange with a thin white head. Aroma is a mix of sour and sweet blueberries. Light body, creamy carbonation with a soft mouthfeel. Bready malt flavour with wheat and blueberries. Finishes with just enough dryness.
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub, and I suspect that freshness was responsible for this ale being among the very best fruit beers I’ve tried. We were told that the small handful of blueberries tossed into the glass were local grown and frozen (because frozen floats and fresh don’t). Real malty body in the blond ale base balanced out the mild blueberry tartness. A true rarity: both MsJaxson and I enjoyed it. A must-have when visiting the brewpub. mathieuc (4000) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2017
New SKU at the SAQ... Pours a very clear golden with a small white rim that leaves low lacing. Nose is of blueberry muffin mix but you know, with fake blueberries. Taste is not quite sweet but offers some floury cereals and more candy blueberries. Body is light to medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is only very lightly sticky. Overall it has some redeeming qualities but I don’t think I would come back to it. Maybe if it was offered ice cold with frozen blueberries under some blistering sun but even then I’m not sure... deyholla (11745) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Can. Pours a clear yellow gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a blueberry pie note with some straw underlying. Flavor has sweet blueberries and sweet grains with a hint of straw underlying. ryanfolty (2574) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2016
September 12, 2016 - on tap at Maxwells Plum. Clear golden pour with some head and lacing. Aroma and taste of grain, sweetness, blueberry and some hops. TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Can shared by Deyholla. Thanks. Pours a clear medium yellow with minimal head. Aroma is sweet blueberry muffin from a vending machine. Taste is sweet, subdued blueberry. Certainly not great. Kind of odd.

Can thanks to DeyHolla! Gold pour with no head whatsoever. Nose smells like artificial blueberry cake mix. Little else. Very sweet flavor. More blueberry. A bit syrupy. Very strong carb. Not my thing. Holdwine (1232) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 24, 2016
Good enough fruit beer. Blueberry is there on the nose and upfront on the tongue, but not overpowering. Fun summer drink, especially in the heat. Not as complex as their other offerings. KansaiBeerLvrs (5191) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2016
Pumphouse Blueberry Ale 5%
From New Brunswick and a lovely gold with a fluffy white head plus an aroma of fresh blueberry pie an cracked malt. The beer is light bodied with a tangy blueberry flavor but also mild hints of diacetyl.

Bottle from NB Liquor. Pours a hazy straw colour with a small white head. Aroma is bread and not too pronounced blueberry. Taste is similar, sweet. Ok beer. Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2016
Slightly hazy straw color with moderate activity moving in slow motion from a thick body. Weak white 2 finger sparkly head, lasting around 5 minutes, with average legs.
Aroma of blueberry muffins. Flavors of grains, fresh blueberries, caramel, lemon, herbal spices. Bready and malty with minimal hops. More sugary than sharp with a nice syrupy feel.
Thick syrupy medium body with crispy carbonation. Faint and short finish, ending with a faint fruity blueberry feel, some roasted malt, and a little noble spices.
Overall average in quality offering decent flavors and good freshness. While the flavors are good they are a little faint and the feel is missing some personality. Nice summer beer almost like drinking a blueberry version of a lemonade. Although I find Gahan’s blueberry ale to be much better.
