As a BLUEBERRY beer this rocks. As a beer it has some shortcomings. Remembering that it is a solid fruit beer. No doubt is meant for blueberries. Flavor is mark on blueberries. Not much else. The wife has been drinking this for the last 8 years and decided to try finally. Light on the taste buds but the blueberries will crack it the same as the bitterest hops. Good for its intended purpose though.

From the 12 oz. bottle with a May 16 expiration date notched out of the label. Sampled on January 15, 2016.

The color is a deep golden yellow with a quickly dissipating white fizzy head.

I can pick up the blueberry sensations a yard from my nose with a toasted bread aroma.

Light yet smooth body.

The taste highlights the bittersweet flavors of blueberry hovering over the toasted malt and a clean hop finish. I am not a blueberry ale fan but this one is alright.

*I didn't know this was retired. My 6 pack appears to be fresh*

A- Hazy amber color, but it looks golden in some lighting. Hazy amber is the real color. Head was just like a macro lager. It died fast. Not gonna win over anyone in it's appearance.

S- Big blueberries and malty, grainy notes. It's kind of like a blueberry pancake. That seems to be the typical note in blueberry beers I've had. There is also a syrupy, almost artificial, kind of sweetness in there. Faint butterscotch as well.

T- Butterscotch and sweet blueberry. Maybe some pale malt to go with that, I guess. Some grains. Some bitter and lightly sour notes before it finishes fairly dry. Nothing is off-putting. But not a whole lot to write about.

M- On the light side of medium. Very crisp! It is refreshing and clean tasting. Less carbonation would have been better. Carbonation is almost like soda water.

Overall this isn't too bad for a blueberry ale. Beers with blueberries seem to taste better than other beers brewed with fruits. I can see having a beer like this with brunch or a light lunch. It's not bad at all. It's just a simple beer is all.
