Sampled at Real Beer Expo (Rochester). Bright golden with a decent white head that doesn’t last. plenty of blueberry and a little malt on the nose. Blueberry up front with a peppery(?) finish. Med. low carbonation, med. body and some astringency. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [growler] Pours a pale golden color with a thin white head. Aroma of freshly baked blueberry muffins. Initial sweet blueberry taste with a very odd followup of dry hops mixed with stale barley. Very unpleasant and dry aftertaste. DYCSoccer17 (3708) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Sampled at Empire Brewfest. Blueberries in aroma, but not overpowering unlike most beers like this. Not shabby. Transparent blonde with white head. Hints of blueberry to start, then nice bitter hops backing it up. Sort of watery and bland after that. This has some potential. This isn’t too cloying, just needs a little more help on the backside. jb (3407) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Website description: A light-bodied, golden ale with a pleasant balance of hops and a hint of natural blueberry.
Tasted at Rohrbach’s summer beer festival. Mild blueberry aroma, Lots of blueberries in the palate. Fruity mild dry finish. The fruit beers stood out a bit to me as something different taste wise at the festival. GonZoBeeR (3061) - ste-catherine, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2005

Tasted at Buffalo Brewfest: A very faint hint of blueberry in the aroma and flavor. Other than that, it was a decent pale ale. The blueberry ale was very popular with the ladies at the brewfest. It was decent, but nothing spectacular. MacBoost (1936) - Victor, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Draft. Pours a clear amber with a generous head. Aromas of artificially flavored blueberry candy, malt. The blueberry is not as pronounced in the taste, and thank heaven for that. Finishes with a slight acidity. Decent. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2016
16oz can into a pint glass.
3.0 A: Clear straw color. Two fingers of frothy white head. Retention is a touch below average and just a few wisps of lacing are left.
3.5 S: Pleasant blueberry permeates the air. There’s not much to say about the base beer. It’s clean overall, perhaps a touch grainy with a light hay component. The blueberry covers up most of it.
2.5 T: Like 98% of fruit beers, this one doesn’t commit to the blueberry. There’s enough to give it a nice aroma, but not enough to hold its own in the taste. Thus, it comes across as too watered down. Again, this is clean overall with light grassy/hay.
3.25 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lawnmover beer drinkability.
2.75 D: Not terrible for a fruit beer, but needs either a lot more fruit or none to become a better beer.
