This beer pours an odd pinkish yellow with no hea or lace. The aroma is blueberry with hints of wheat and hops. The flavor is tart blueberry with a mild hop bitterness with a wheat malt finish. It's mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Fegley's Blueberry Belch is a decent beer, recommended.

My wife had one of these on tap today at BBW. I stole enough of hers to be able to pass judgment on it.
Small white head that faded fairly quickly; don't remember much lacing.
This year's batch had a vaguely reddish-purplish tone to it that prior reviewers did not mention; perhaps the recipe has been tweaked. At any rate, it was a cloudy amber with a definite dark reddish cast to it.
I didn't get much smell from it; mainly malts. Flavor was mainly straightforward malts as well, with some gentle berry flavor (not overwhelming) at the end, esp. as the beer warmed up a bit.
I've tried a few fruit beers now, and am beginning to think I'm just not a fan of the genre.
I *do* think this was the best fruit beer I've tried, though. Berry taste was subtle, not cloying, and beer was very drinkable and refreshing.
I suspect real fruit-beer aficionados will be able to think of something else they like better ... but still, I would recommend trying a Blueberry Belch.
It's pleasant, and that ain't entirely a bad thing to be.

Served on-tap at Cork City Pub in Hoboken, NJ
A: Pours a mostly clear medium amber in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some definite purple/red wine highlights. The beer has a finger tall sudsy biege head that reduces to a medium sized medium thick patch, a very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of sweet blueberry with some natural and some artificial hints. There are some lighter notes of sweet grainy malts underneath.
T: Upfront there was a moderate flavor of sweet blueberry that eventual shows some hints of tartness. Underneath the blueberry flavor there is a lighter amount of sweet grainy malts.
M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: Not a bad blueberry beer - not the greatest that I have tried and certainly not the worst. The flavors and aromas are mostly of natural blueberry though it is a touch sweeter than I would have expected. Definitely a brew for a hot summer day.

On tap at the Bethelehem Brew Pub.
Poured a deeper and cloudy amberish color with an averaged sized purple tinted white head. Aromas of fresh blueberries. I like the blueberry aroma. Tastes of blueberries with some graininess.
Notes from 09/08/07.

Well, I am a sucker for blueberry so what the hell, decided to pick up a sixer of this.
A - Pours pretty spritizy with a slight garnet/ruby tinge. Lots of bubbles with a small white head that flattens out pretty quickly.
S/T - Delivers a refreshing blueberry profile, crsip and refreshing. I get the sense that this would be an enjoyable summer brew in that it is very light. I can see downing a couple of these watching the waves roll in at the house in Longport.
M - Thin as a model with an eating disorder. After having some stouts, this seems like water with some blueberry concentrate added.
O - Nobody will like this but I think I'll remember this one for the summer. It's enjoyable if you want a crisp, light, refreshing beer and you like blueberry. I'll be back.
