(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with IMtheOptimator, thanks Andrew!) Best before July, 2005. Oh well, Im a few months late on this one. Im noticing that blueberry beers tend to taste less artificial than some other styles of fruit beer, but that doesnt mean they taste like fresh fruit either. This blueberry wheat ale isnt great, but while the fruit does taste somewhat like sweet blueberries, it has a modest artificial quality hanging over it. The wheat background is barely noticeable, and bitterness is kept to a minimum, so this is really all about the moderately sweet blueberry flavor. The initial nose is more artificial smelling, and it reminds me of a room deodorizer spray, but it seems to get better after a few minutes and becomes acceptable. Body is light, and the aftertaste leaves a bad feeling in the mouth that makes me want to go brush my teeth. Dark straw and fully clear, so the carbonation bubbles can easily be seen rising through the beer. The whitish head pours small and quickly fades away into oblivion, not even leaving a hint of lace of the glass as a sign that it ever existed. Not a bad beer, maybe even slightly above average for American fruit beers, but its still not a beer Id obtain again.

It certainly smells great, of course - As soon as you open it the aroma of bluberries flls the room. . Pours a cloudy yellow. Decent sour blueberry flavor at first tht seems a bit artificial as I drink longer. Hint of bitterness in the finish.

Smells like blue-berry muffins. Very light in color. No head. Tastes way too strong for me the blueberry flavor is and was way too sweet. Give me a Sweetwater Blue any day!

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.

Dorwart (2578) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2005
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.
