This is a great summer beer. As other reviewers have said, the blueberry smell in very strong. Taste is excellent, and I highly recommend (even though my wife makes fun of me for it) that one puts it in a glass with real blueberries (it's sometimes served at bars this way).

Only possible downside: if you're looking to get blitzed it will take many of them becuase of the low alcohol content. Overall this is an excellent beer and certainly the best blueberry beer I've ever had.

Single bottle from Martignetti's.

Appearance = Pretty sub-par looking. Not much different from a weak looking macro lager. Clear straw colored. Not much head at all, weak lacing. nothing going for it.

Smell = Nice, crisp, natural blueberry flavor. With a neat bit of toasted grain and malt coming through also. Can't complain about this at all.

Taste = This is a really good tasting fruit beer. The blueberry is not overwhelming in the least but it's there, noticable, and natural tasting. It's complimented very well by spices that make a definite presence: Yum..This is almost like a great pumpkin ale. There's cinnamon and nutmeg that goes really well with the blueberry. This is like a spicy, blueberry pie that's not overly sweet in the least. Great job, Wachusett.

Overall = An awesome blueberry ale. Extremely drinkable and tasty. Not overwhelming in any way.

Pours a light yellow color with a slight head and no lacing. The smell is of blueberries up front there is a little grain smell in the back. The overall taste is of sweet malt and mostly blueberries, however, the blueberry taste is not overpowering or artificial in flavor. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated and crisp. Overall the drinkability on this one is very high, it is an easy drink beer with some complexity, very refreshing on a hot day.

Tried at the AOBF.. The golden look was appealing and the smell was slightly hoppy with a heavy hint of blueberry which was really appealing. The head lasted a short time ( in the 4 oz cup) and the taste was clean with a sweet taste. The aftertaste was nice as well. This is a really good beer froma really good company.Kudos!
