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!

Picked up a sixer on the way home from work Friday. Standard bottles as shown in the photo in a matching cardboard carrier. Nothing special really.
Same with the beers appearance as I poured it into a pint glass. Looks basically like any old light beer...has the color of miller, bud, etc. but perhaps with a more substantial head, but that didn't last too long.
S-smells malty with ever so slight a hint of blueberries. The fruit scent is very light and hard to pick up on...not very strong if you ask me.
Taste-light, balanced...very much carbonation. For me, blueberry flavor was not noticeable except as an aftertaste, giving this a nice little sweet finish. Not overly sweet though, in my opinion. Just a nice aftertaste.
Mouthfeel-good. Nothing special, but nice, clean, very carbonated, but I like it. Nothing too complex, just beer.
Drinkability-A+. These, for me, go down like water. Very tasty, the blueberry flavor, for now, keeps me interested. Not too sweet, in my opinion. I like it and will definitely go back for more. Also would be interested to try it from the tap. I definitely recommend this stuff if you are partial to lighter beers and not very into dark stuff as I am.
