Poured out as a murky brownish amber color, the head was minimal and left no lacing. The aroma of blueberry and wheat were strong on the nose. The taste is the beer has some good blueberry flavors upfront then it faded into a wheat aftertaste. The mouthfeel was on the lighter side with some subtle carbonation. Overall is was an average fruit beer. Decent for summer drinking.

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.

Funky hazed purple with the thinnist ring I've ever seen on a freshly poured draft beer. Retention, lacing...no way.

Aroma is nice, fresh blueberry pulp and light wheat. Light tartness, the berries definately are real, no artificial junk detected.

Flavor similar. Very fresh blueberry and wheaty tang with soft crackery malt and a hint of pepper. Again you can tell this is real fruit.

Body light and slick, looses carbonation quickly. Tastes nice but the body and presentation need tweaking.

A somewhat cloudy golden amber colored brew topped with a small comvering of white foam. The nose is made up of a mild berry aroma as well as pale malts.

There is only a very faint fruity aroma of blueberries. It really does not make up the flavor, but it does provide sweetness. There is a big array of pale grains and bready flavor. It is light, crisp, and a bit refreshing. It is definitely a good summer brew, but it needs a bit more flavor and body.

A very interesting if not unspectacular brew, but unique, nevertheless. This deep brown/amber Bier presented with about a one-finger head on it. Not too shabby for this style, in my opinion. The aroma was, in my mind's eye, virtually nonexistent. The flavor was of bluberry, pure and simple. No additional sweetness, no real malt back bone to it. This is essentially like drinking a gladd of blueberries. Which is not necessarily a bad thing.

Prosit!

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.
