a - poured a one finger thick eggshell colored head into an english pub glass that settled to a thin ring. i didn't stick around for the whole beer to see if it lasted though. the body was a bubbly, bright gold color.
s - blueberry pie if it wasn't made with blueberries. hint of breadiness.
t - same as the aroma.
m - very thin and clean.
o - gross, i poured it down the drain.

You know what it's time for...yes, boys and girls...yet another piece of the puzzle entitled "Free Beers From Work"!

Pours a very pale orange with a bit of haze. Small spritzy white head becomes a ring quite quickly eventually dissipating to just about nothing.

A decent, authentic blueberry scent - not particularly strong or complex but pleasant enough.

Taste is similar, it's all about the blueberries but it's not overly sweet, decent flavor and doesn't come off as artificial. Not much else to it other than some bready malts, graininess, maybe a touch of sweeter caramel malts. Not bad, kinda boring.

Decent mouthfeel, a bit thin with some spritzy carbonation.

Really not bad, doesn't stimulate the senses much, but wouldn't mind having it again.

Poured from 12oz bottle into tulip. Pours a golden straw color, no head, just a bit of lacing. Smell is actually pretty nice. Its a crisp blueberry malt. Not overly artificial, but somewhat mellow. The taste is very very mellow...I taste blueberry and malts. Very light and very mild. Overall, its average at best, but its an ok Blueberry Ale. Meh..

Pours nearly a clear yellow with a one-finger, quickly dissipating bright white head. Aroma of blueberry, bread, some could even say blueberry bread, or muffin, or pancake. Really tasty bready brew. Nice blueberry notes to go with the great bread character and a bit of wheat as well. No overwhelming fake blueberry taste. Crisp and refreshing. This is a very good fruit beer, especially for blueberry fans. It accomplishes its goals.
