Tap @ the YardHouse. Dark with little head... crisp taste of beer followed by a refreshing aftertaste of blueberries. Great blueberry aroma but does not over power the overall smell and taste of the brew.

Aroma – Great Blueberry aroma in this awesome fruit beer.
Appearance – Deep yellow in color, light head and clear.
Flavor – This had a great light blueberry flavor that added to this beer. It was enough for you to enjoy the beer and the flavor. The blueberry was near perfect in my opinion.
Palate – Had a easy drink feel and a great finish with a slight lingering blueberry flavor.
Overall – One of the best fruit beers I have ever had and I like fruit beers. This was good subtle and not over powering in huge fruit flavor. A great beer. Good Job SLO Brewing.

Had this beer on 2/11/1998. Color is a golden yellow with a haze to it, carbonation and head are low. The aroma is a sweet blueberry scent that reminds me of a blueberry cereal. Taste is the worst part about this beer, it starts with a crisp body and goes down a little sharp. The finish is the worst, leaving you with what I can best describe as a pepper taste, there is no sign of blueberry at all.

Light pink amber with a nice frothy, silky head. Easy aroma of light hops and blueberry. Easy blueberry flavor makes this quite an enjoyable fruit beer. Lightly sour finish. A tasty session fruit beer.

12-oz. Got this as something of a gag gift from a GF who brought it back from a road trip. She says "this is disgusting. Try it."
Pours clear lmedium amber with a tall, dense, moussy tan head that falls away quickly to film. Not much lace. Smells like some sort of frozen blueberry syrup concentrate. Hits you as soon as you crack it, much less pour it. Big synthetic vibes off this one. Get your nose in it, and it smells like white sugar and dust, maybe some bubble gum.
Attack is watery and sticky (how did they do that?). Almost flat. Cloying artificial sweetener flavor on top of some caramel and a thick blast of blueberry. Tastes like breakfast cereal. Not much finish. I’m already burping up booberries and I’ve only had one sip. I think it’s time this beer got to know my septic tank a little better.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2007 Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a brownish/amber color. Aroma is of canned blueberries with a little cinnamon. Moderate blueberry flavor along with a little graininess and a hint of hops. Not bad.

Slight artificial blueberry aroma. Like a blueberry puree or some blueberry Now and Laters. Pours amber with a small head. Flavor is a mild blueberry against a regular amber ale. The hops and caramel malt definitley over power the blueberry flavor. It does peak through in the beginning on the front of the tongue, and again on the after taste, but it is still relatively weak. Body is medium. It was ok. Will not seek out, but would maybe have again as a desert beer or something.

Had at the new Santa Barbara Downtown brewing co.,which took over Slo brewing.This beer had an unnoticeable aroma.Color typical amber beer color.The taste was quite surprising at first.It had a subtle blueberry taste,which didn’t overpower the beer.I think what ruined this beer for me is they used a too heavy of a bodied beer.The beer taste was too strong for the blueberry taste.I think a good pale ale would be a better match for this blueberry beer.Not bad though,just could have been much better.Nice concept.Will probably drink again.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 28, 2006
Bottle: Amber color, average head. Nose of light malt and some faint dry blueberry notes, almost like boysenberry. The flavor is like those little dehidrated blueberries in the instant pancake mixes. Thin, dry, so-so. I could use a bit more intensity (dry berrying?) and body. Fun though.
