look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Poured into a tulip glass from a growler purchased at Total Wine in Columbia.
A: Clear golden yellow with a very thin white head and minimal lacing.
S: Bluberries! This batch(I'll explain later) mainly smells like blueberry pancake mix. Kind of a wierd flour/egg/milk mix of smells that are dominated by the bluberries.
T&M: Crisp with blueberries that slowly fade through a mainly oily lager type beer taste. Mostly malty sweet. Hop bitterness is there and balanced nicely.
Back to the "this batch" comment; All of these fruit beers that are mass produced come with a considerable 'inconsistency' factor. Usually, this is the best blueberry ale that I have had in recent years. Atlantic Brewing used to have the best 'Blueberry Ale' when it was actually brewed in Bar Harbour, Maine, but now that it has reappeared in recent years, I believe it has lost it's quality through the contract brewing process. Sea Dog still gets my vote for best blueberry available today, especially since they brew it in Maine and get those blueberries fresh.

08/25/11 I am liking this one a lot. Spot on summertime taste. Not to much of anything, just a good balance of the wheat ale with some very upfront blueberries.
The folks at Sea Dog say: "delightful aromatics and subtle flavor contributed by Maine wild blueberries." I found the blueberries to be right out front, not that I minded that one iota. Not to sweeten but to balance the tang of the wheat. Great for a hot summer's day.

Could have sworn this was called Blue Paw, but nothing came up under the search. Maybe the bar had it mislabeled on their menu.
Hazy color, no head when brought to my table. Very intense blueberry smell bursts off the top. Tastes about as sweet as it smells, a little on the sweet side, but not what I'd call overwhelming. Doesn't have that syrupy taste of some other fruit brews I've had. I have to say, the blueberry tastes like it's well blended in the malt, doesn't taste artificial or like it was added after the brewing process. If you're looking for hops, though, look elsewhere. I personally enjoy this one, I'm a bit partial to blueberries. Great choice of a dessert beer, or paired with fruit.

Slightly hazy golden color with a thick white head with medium retention.
Unique aroma with notes of guaraná soda and definitely blueberries.
Likewise flavor of rose petals, clearly blueberries, core of pineapple, ginger and wheat.
Light body with good carbonation. Elegant tartness.
Decent fruit beer, extremely easy to drink. Subtle as the blueberry itself, it sure feels real.
