KBC Blueberry Ale has a very thick, off-white head, that dies away sort of quickly, a clear, golden, bubbly appearance, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of an initial strong whiff of blueberry, but that subsides and is replaced by bread with background blueberry. Taste is where this goes downhill- bread, some blueberry flavor, and a bit of a nasty sour-bitterness, backing it all up. Mouthfeel is rather light and watery, and KBC Blueberry Ale finishes mostly dry. RJT

From 12oz bottle, labeled Kennebunkport Blueberry Ale, poured into tulip glass, bought at Trader Joes as single for around $1.07

Aroma: loads of blueberry, reminds me of blueberry pancakes

Appearance: orange, clear, minimal white head

Taste: medium sweet

Palate: light body, thin texture, sweet finish

Overall: Great aroma, but the taste doesnt match up with the aroma. Definitely a lot of blueberries in there, just something in the taste thats a tad off for me. Very thin, almost watery. Very clear and Im not sure theres any wheat in this ale.

Got a rush of blueberries at first opening. Purple amber color. Flavor has some blueberry, but hop bitterness prevailed.

Really quite bad. Too sweet and the flavours arent really in harmony. Light wheat malt is a bit crisp and the blueberry is fake tasting. Light and easy going body. Very easy to drink

August 30, 2015 - on tap at Orlando brewpub. Clear golden pour with some head and a blueberry floating at the top. Aroma was like a blueberry muffin. Taste was grainy with some blueberry.

Blueberry was very noticeable without being over powering like other blueberry beer. Didnt taste like blueberry AND beer, it tasted like a blueberry beer

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours a golden color with a big white head. There is very little lacing, which dissipates quickly. The aroma is very strong blueberry with some wheat. The taste is very sweet blueberry with hints of bread and grain. It tastes kind of like a blueberry muffin. Its pretty thin and crisp. I was disappointed. Its just too sweet for me.

Apparently quite a discrepancy between bottle and tap ratings. On tap for me. Pours a cloudy amber with a slight hue of purple, and an off white head. Aroma of wheat and blueberries, suprise! Taste of wheat, sweet ripe blueberries, suprise! Light bodied, medium carbonation, nice subtle blueberry finish. This is a simple but actually pretty good refreshing fruit beer. Try on tap if possible, sounds way better than the bottle.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of blueberry, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of blueberries, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of blueberry, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of blueberry, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good robustness and balance of blueberries, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Not too dry after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a nice fruit wheat. All around good balance and robustness of blueberries, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. I would have preferred to see some wheat yeast influence in the flavors for a bit more complexity; but it was still a nicely enjoyable offering.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2015 Pours a gold color. Not a lot of head. Some lacing. Eh, I?m not sure how too rate it. Average, I guess. Aroma immediately from opening is wildly amazingly blueberry. It?s almost nothing beyond the blueberry. It?s hard to tell. It?s very blueberry. Taste is pretty good. It doesn?t really taste like blueberry so much. I think the blueberry flavor actually comes from the aroma. It reminds you of blueberry as you drink it. I think of a blueberry muffin as I drink it. Blueberry from the aroma, and grains in the muffin. I?m not so convinced that it?s a wheat beer. It has many aliases, so I can?t be sure. Mouthfeel is medium. It?s not real heavy. It?s a little wet on the finish. It?s quite refreshing. It does leave a little blueberry aftertaste. It?s sweet all the way around. If you like fruity beers, this is your thing. It?s somewhere between beer and wine cooler. It?s good. It?s different. I?ve never had a blueberry beer before, so this was different. I like this pretty well. I would do this again, but more importantly I would try something else from this brewer. It?s worth a try!
