JamesCory (54) - Wheeling, Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2011
12 oz. bottle of Kennebunkport Brewing Co. Blueberry Wheat Ale, from Trader Joe’s.

Aroma: 3/10: Smells like straight-up Blueberry Pie Filling. And not the good kind, with the real blueberries mixed in to the gelatinous goo, but just the plain gelatinous goo.

Appearance: 2/5: With this being labeled as a wheat ale, I expected some of the typical cloudiness associated with wheat ales. I saw none of it.

Taste: 6/10: It actually tastes pretty darn good. Not great, but better than expected. Better than some of the similar-type beers.

Palate: For what it is, pretty refreshing. Medium-high carbo, relatively light, with a slight oilyness.

Overall: I expected to really hate this beer - on the order of total score <1. But, surprisingly, it’s not bad. Better than "Wild Blue" that you see all over, by AB. I anticipate that this beer would be great after a long yard mowing session... a unique summer beer - something different than all of the citrusy summer beer clones that have exploded on the market. The aroma is cheap-smelling, and the appearance isn’t great; taste is just so-so... but, put them all together and the total is more than a sum of its parts. However - buyer beware - you must LOVE blueberry to love this beer. 8/20

beautiful, smells great, tastes amazing..but if you don’t like blueberries then obviously don’t drink this one. Have it on draft in a glass that emphasizes the smells. Hard to describe, but i love it. has almost a buttery smooth finish that makes me think of a fresh blueberry muffin.....just like grandma used to make. try it. you’ll like it,

On draft at Westover Market. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Aroma of blueberry. Flavors of berries and cream. Somewhat sweet but decent.

(Tap) clear, bright golden colour with a small white head; aroma of blueberries, then hint of roast; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish

Tranquillity (2328) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
Draft. Pale clear yellow body, small white head. The aroma is very artificial and sweet, but it has a hint of tartness. The taste is like bubblegum. Overall not bad, but way too artificial.

On tap at Yard House. This is a very tasty beer, the blueberry is present but subtle, I could drink a whole lot of these very refreshing babies.

3.6
tekstr1der (490) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 1, 2016
Assuming this is no longer a wheat beer, it pours a clear yellow/copper. Aroma is all blueberry. Flavor is a bit soda-like and blueberry flavored. This is drinkable but not great.
