Pours a cloudy golden color. Smell is bursting with blueberries. Taste is subdued compared to the smell. Some blueberry, a bit of bitterness at the finish. Overall a refreshing summertime beer.
Bottle from Total Wine, South Richmond. Pours clear gold with a small soft white head. Aroma is blueberry, lager. Flavor is blueberry - not overly sweet but not bitter, grass, grain. Pretty straightforward. Drinkable. fordest (2469) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - SEP 8, 2015
Bottle at our monthly bottle share. I had not expected much from this beer when I picked it up so cheaply for the size of the bottle, but it surprised me. Blueberry was very prominent on both the aroma and the flavor. It had a bit of chemical flavor on the finish. bluejacket74 (1995) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2015
32 ounce jug. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about a half inch white head that stuck around for a while. There’s a small amount of lacing. The brew smells like sweet malt, blueberries, and a bit of citrus. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like sweet/grainy malt, artificial blueberry flavoring, and some lemon. There’s also a lightly bitter finish. Also, the blueberry was stronger in the aroma than it was in the taste. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it has a good amount of carbonation and it’s easy enough to drink. This one really didn’t do anything for me, I think I would have liked it more if the blueberry flavor was stronger. With that being said, it’s worth a try at least once but it’s not something I’d drink very often. 60minuteman (1765) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2015
A hazy gold color from sample on tap at Square Bar. Aroma is already intimidating. Blueberry, lemon, spiced malts and grass. Not really able to stomach this one. Too sweet. Too malty. Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Reviewed from notes. Consumed July 2, 2012.
The appearance has a hazy golden colored body that gave a white, frothy, foamy head that appeared for a good thirty seconds. It left barely any lacing and some fast rising bubbles were seen.
The smell had blueberries in front with some wheat in the back.
The taste has blueberries up front; and in the back there are some bready malts that came out a bit with some light lemon.
On the palate, it sits about a medium, shows no watery quality but leaves a good refreshingness all around. It has a nice sessionable quality to it.
Overall, the blueberry comes out pretty strong, but hey I believe thats what Saranac wanted. Its still a pretty good beer that I would have it again.

Tastes like candy blueberry, sulfur, and pale malt. Not really something I'm into. Cybercat (6336) - Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Malty aroma has a definite overtone of blueberry - and I love blueberries. Pours a typical clear yellow with a decent whitish head. Blueberry dominates, but does not overwhelm, the malty and refreshing flavor. It is a bit sweet, but fruity sweet and not overly so. Smooth, mildly fizzy texture leaves a nice blueberry finish. Good for a summer day - or an early autumn one. Or anytime of year. williamstome (2038) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Hazy gold pour
Sweet blueberry aroma
Light blueberry flavor. Sweet, a bit simple. Holdwine (1240) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Not as bad as I expected. Still a bit gassy. Blueberries abound, in a good way.Hazy pour, slight wheatgrass notes. Okay effort. jrodooo5 (1749) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - AUG 24, 2013
While there’s nothing great going in here, there’s nothing a can really rip this beer for. It’s a nice hit of blueberry in both aroma & taste up front. It has a decent hazy pour w/ a white head that leaves some lacing. It’s got alright flavoring & pretty good balance. Not even close to as terrible as I was expecting!
