12 Oz bottle given to me by my father-in-law. We've enjoyed a few of these over the years. Blueberry ales seem to be rather prolific in New England...so much so that I consider it to be a style of its own.
Pours a clear, light brass color with a thick white head. The two finger head dissipates over time, leaving wispy, white lacings. This is surprisingly light for a blueberry ale.
Sweet grain, dough and a touch of yeast are absolutely buried by the aroma of blueberry pancakes. If you are looking for a touch of blueberry flavor in your beer, then leave this one on the shelf.
Grain husks and a suggestion of hops are perceivable in the flavor until the sweet storm of blueberries take over. Finishes dry.
This brew is light bodied with ample, pleasing carbonation. This is a quaffable lawn mower beer that can certainly provide some summer cookout enjoyment. In terms of quality, it is just too one-dimensional to warrant higher scores.

One of my favorite blueberry beers. The smell is nice, and I love how this blueberry beer is not overly sweet, and you get a nice bitterness as it goes down the hatch. Just enough blueberry flavor to let me know it's there, but not overwhelming. Good for a hot day - out by the pool or mowing the yard.

From the 12 fl. oz. can. Sampled on July 18, 2014.
The pour is straw yellow with a foamy white head and the slightest fog. Looks like an adjunct light lager.
The aroma us subtle. The toasted grain and pale malts are enhanced by the subtle blueberry note. Nothing overwhelms the other.
The body is light and refreshing.
The taste is also on the barley grain, pale malt side with a hunt of blueberry and a crisp, clean finish.
