Can, as Blueberry Blonde Ale. Pours orange with a white head. Plain malty base, a little bit of generic fruity sweetness, faint floral hops, some herbal notes, and a little blueberry in the finish. Fine. austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 19, 2002
The aroma is choked with blueberries. The flavor, less so. Altogether a nice fruity beer, though I'm not eager for another. But I must admit this was well done. Seems to be a pale ale underneath, as I detect some bitterness. Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2006
Pour is clear ruddy amber with a thin white head...smell is blueberry, with an unpleasant warm soggy malt (like when you go to a brewery while they are brewing) smell...taste is bright, with some strange malty flavors, but the blueberry being acidic and metallic...blech...

Draught at the Santa Barbara location; listed as only 3.3%abv. Dark gold-amber color with a slight haze. Blast of blueberry in the aroma with some wet straw and grain. Flavors of husky grains and very subtle blueberry. Pretty sweet and full flavored for the strength, and I like that the blueberry is almost undetectable in the flavor, but there is something odd about how prevalent it is in the aroma. akinm (282) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 6, 2003
Blueberries up the wazoo! a dark golden body with poor clarity is not really exciting. the aroma is bluebarry pancakes, not bad if it is sunday morning but this was monday night and i wanted a beer! the flavor almost had some malt in it but then the blueberries came back to haunt me. they were everywhere, no balance here. at least the body was on the light side and the carbonation was moderate so this scooted out of range of the taste buds farely quickly.

Amber gold color. Smells of blueberries and yeast. Not much head, but delicate lacing (plastic pint glass). The start is grassy, passing through confusion, but the end, which persists, is blueberry. The hops tend to get lost in the fruit. Not so bad. Interesting. But buy another six pack? riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2007
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. BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 24, 2003
This is a gold clear beer. I could not taste the blueberry in this beer. I felt it had more of a peppery taste and you could tell it was from a bottle. dwyerpg (6496) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Well, it smells strongly of blueberries and it tastes like blueberries too, but in the end this is not so tasty. On tap at the Yard House in Anaheim. BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2003
Straw hue with quickly disappearing head, no lace. Aroma is blueberry of course, but also detected some aromatic hops and toasted malts. Flavor is bland with the blueberry tasting coy and the characteristics of the ale too subdued. Minor bitter and acidic finish. Thin-bodied with a watery and fizzy mouthfeel. I've had better blueberry beers (Dark Horse and Back Road), this one is on my pass list.
