Okay, I really like proper, quality made fruit beer. And I love blueberries. So it's not like I'm dumping on this for being a fruit beer. But I tasted it next to Marin Bluebeery (which rocked), so sorry Boulder Brewing...
A - looks a little copper and light for being a blueberry ale
S - smells artificial and a little medicinal
T - Tastes metallic and medicinal, reminds me of taking cold medicine as a kid, not a lot of blueberry flavor, just a hint of some unidentifiable fruit flavor.
M - Medium bodied with not much going on as far as tannin or balance.
D - I poured mine out pretty quickly and went for the Marin instead (which tasted like fresh blueberry muffins!)
Serving type: on-tap

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Tawny in color. Great clarity. The head seems to contain just the slightest purple hue. It settles into a thin cap rather quickly, but leaves a thin coating of lacing behind.
S: Bready wheat notes, maybe a little chalky, faint whiffs of tart blueberry. Clean. Actually very little on the nose, you really have to strain to pick everything out.
T: Juicy blueberries up front. Very slight blueberry tartness after a few seconds. Yeast is very clean and neutral. Flashes of wheat. Finish is basically nonexistent.
M: Light bodied. Thin, creamy, wheaty. Some fruit skin astringency builds to a mild annoyance after a while. Lightly seltzery carbonation.
O: The brewers may have been going for subtlety here, but they stayed too safe. There's nothing offensive about it, but there just isn't a whole lot going on.

12 oz bottle dated Enjoy by 7.9.14
A - Deep golden with no head and no sticky lace and slight clarity
S - Light fruit/blueberry and wheat.
T - Light blueberries and fruit and wheat, like the nose. It doesn't really come together however. Nothing great going on here.
M - Light bodied, low carbonation.
O - This one would be enjoyable outside on a hot summer afternoon really cold. But other than that I will pass.
