Crystal-clear amber with virtually no head, the sour blueberry aroma that came off this beer was like opening a can of pie filling. Additional aromas of cereal/grain gave the impression of blueberry muffins. Herbal hop aromas conflicted. Flavor was very blueberry covering a taste that I couldnt place but didnt like. Had a sugary sweet ending but left a sourness in the stomach. Was fine for conversation at a party but I wont be buying again.

It has a great aroma and taste that overdoes any of the others in its class. I dont really understand all the low scores for this ale. I mean, it serves its purpose. If a Special Olympics gold medalist tried to race an actual Olympian, would you seriously hold him to the same standards? No, youd say "How sweet! Hes doing that cute little walking/run thing he does." He was just doing his special thing, just like this ale is doing its blueberry thing.

Clear golden color whihc surprised me, great smell just like blueberry muffins. The taste got to me though too fruity and sweet for me.

Large white head of fine bubles. Little creamy on top. Light carbonation. BIG, distinctive blueberry aroma. Very sweet blueberry aroma mixed in with some stinky dog poop. Light hops in there also. Color is a dark gold. Only a light blueberry flavor with some wheat and light malts. Slightly doughyflavor. Pretty crisp and clean. Lingering blueberry aftertaste that is more prominent than the flavor. Pretty light and refreshing.

Best before 11-2005 bottle consumed 8/13/2005. Pours very bubbly. Big bubbles, no head whatsoever. Golden-cider/apple-juice colored. Smells like blueberry puree, with some hints of wheat sourness/dryness. Tastes like blueberry essence. Dry wheatiness, no yeast or hops. Barely any malt. Sharp, forced, overcarbonation. Touch of honeyish malt on the end, with some light fruit acids. Decent blueberry flavor, with little to no beer aspects. Fizzy, no complexity. Gets more bland as it warms. Filtered, which is a sad thing, to see a filtered wheat beer. Wont have to drink this again.

KUEric (949) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Bottle: Pours a dark golden color. Not much head, lacing or carbonation. Has a smooth mouthfeel, but the flavor is a touch more syrupy than some of the other blueberry beers out there.

Bottle from EDA. Pours a medium yellow color with a smaller white head that fades to a film rather quickly. Big blueberry aroma that pretty much dominates everything else. Lighter bodied. Blueberry everywhere in flavor with a touch of grain. Fairly pleasant, not for more than one though.

This was like drinking Boo Berry cereal. No, not the Boo Berry flavored milk - that would be just gross; more like the wheaty blueberry nuggets. If you havent guessed by now, theres no mistaking that theres blueberry in the brew, which I guess is ok if youre into blueberries. If it wasnt so gimmicky, I might try it again.

Braudog (6494) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2005
Golden yellow with a thin white head. Starchy aroma. The flavor is mostly reminiscent of a blueberry muffin than anything, with a grainy, almost bran-like undertone. But somehow I like it OK.
