Poured into a Capital Brewery Tulip.

The head is very abundant and tapers off to an even thin layer with a nice lacing ready for drinking. It's a good looking golden color with bits of sediment and good carbonation. It smells of the obvious blueberry but not obnoxiously. The reason I like this beer is the fact that this beer does not taste like chemical blueberry like 90% of the other attempts at it. There is a hint of white wildflower honey that makes the finish nice and drinkable. Overall a solid beer but I am a sucker for blueberry.

A-Clear orange, some carbonation, not much head.

S-Nice blueberries, tad bit of honey and wheat, not much though. The blueberry is not artificial at all.

T-Balance of blueberries, slight honey and no bitterness. The blueberry flavor is spot on.

M-Light, not much carbonation.

O-A perfect lawnmower beer. Easily one of the better blueberry beers I've had (Blue Point I'm looking at you)

Looks like a fruit beer should. Nothing out of the ordinary or outstanding. A light copper color, a rating of 3 out of 10 on the hazy factor, and fairly clear. The head is a bright contrasting white, maybe a finger thick, with the slightest hint of purple on some bubbles. Decent retention and almost no lace.

The smell is fleeting, it's there for a second and then gone. While it's there, it's clearly blueberry with a carbonated soda mixed in.

Tastes much better than I expected after the sight and smell. Instead of fake blueberry syrup, it's got an authentic, real berry taste to it. It's not overpowering like articificial flavoring, instead more of a subtle flavor. The honey is there as well, playing a supporting role for balance.

Some different feelings happening. It's tart and carbonated from the beginning, but never overly so. There's a crispness that develops as the beer works it way toward the back of the tongue. All the while, the fruit and honey display a gentle sweetness to counter the tart a bit. The finish is crisp and dry. Light bodied, the alcohol and any hops never factor in.

Could be worse. It's about 35 degrees out and I'm sure this would taste better if it was 50 degrees warmer out. It's not bad, it actually has some good qualities to it. Fairly easy to drink, particularly if you like fruit beers. The low alcohol and gentle feel make it very sessionable.

Pours a clean yellow-amber, with a massive head of fine off-white bubbles. I got no lace here!

Nose is an appealing, refreshing rush of sweet berries and a little toastiness. Not bad.

Taste is sweet and tart, but not overbearingly so. I also get more biscuity malts in the mix. Finishes with more tart blueberry goodness and a trace of hops. Very enjoyable and I will try this one again.

The beer pours a clear honey yellow with a white head that fades quickly. The nose wreaks of artificial pop tart blueberries followed by a touch of honey with a zing. The taste comes on strong with a pronounced honey sweetness followed by blueberry fruitiness that lingers. The mouthfeel is light, drinkable, slightly fruity (not over the top when drinking), but not nearly as dry finishing as I'd hoped/expected. This beer is definitely a summer beer...enjoyed during a Buffalo snow storm... but is not too bad, albeit smells and tastes relatively artificial.
