This is a popular beer style around where I'm from, although I don't really understand it. Blueberry ale. Maybe it's popular everywhere and I just don't know, but around here, there's some restaurants and bars that will dump a spoonfull of the berries into the beer and you can watch them rise and fall, and rise and fall, and rise and fall... I've never been too interested in this kind of entertainment so I have normally stayed away from this beer-style. However, a friend left a few in the fridge and I figured; free beer is good beer, right? Why not review it?
Pours like everything you've ever seen. It's the color of Coors Light and has the head of Rolling Rock. What's lacing? The flavor is refreshing and admittedly pleasant. It's very sweet and very well carbonated. It might be related to a sparkling fruit wine, distant cousins or something. After half a bottle, the sweetness starts to get sticky and the buzz barely there. Perfect beer for sweet-beer loving, session drinkers.
Interestingly, this just might be the best fruit-beer on the planet. It is smooth. It is tasty. It is pretty to look at. It goes down easily. But most importantly, it is not bad. The few fruit beers I've personally tasted have been bad at best. This is drinkable stuff, as drinkable as any adjunct lager, especially if you like sweet-tasting things.

Had this beer on tap in a 22 oz. glass. Golden straw in color with thin white head. The smell of the beer was blueberries all the way. The taste on the other hand only had a hint of blueberry which was a little disappointing. Over all though it was a good beer and i enjoyed it.

I thought this beer was cool and crisp overall, with strong aromas reminiscent of blueberries, a fair amount of carbonation, and light blueberry flavor. The blueberry smell was a great deal stronger than the flavor. The flavors of the malted grain overpowered the blueberry in my opinion, but they positively added to the scent. A good go-to beer.
