12 FL OZ bottle
Served in an imperial nonic glass

A - It is a light shade of amber in the middle and pale yellow around the sides. It has a haze. A mountain of white head sits atop it.

S - Blueberries.

T - It has a soapy taste that gives way to some blueberry flavor. The blueberry flavor is less intense than the smell.

M - It is highly carbonated and has a champagne-like feel to it.

O - It smelled good, and then I tasted it. There is nothing good about a blueberry soap taste.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear gold color with a half inch white head that fizzled away quickly. Pretty much no lacing at all. Aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like blueberries (mostly artificial) and some sweet malt/grain. I think the taste is the same as the aroma, it's all blueberries and grain. I do like blueberries, so I'm a little biased. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's easy to drink, it's refreshing, and has low/medium carbonation. I think this is a good summer beer, it would be pretty good on a hot day. Worth a try. Got this as a single at Kroger.

"Lager with artificial flavor added" reads the bottle.

There are some very negative reviews on this beer, and while I didn't love this, I didn't think it was terrible by any means. Perhaps they have changed the recipe over the last couple years. The main problem is that the blueberry doesn't taste natural (and it's not). Another problem is that there are some strange flavors, like corn and grain, which just don't work so well with the blueberry. The blueberry, which is not overpowering and not too sweet, tastes alright. There's nothing about it that tastes fresh, but there's nothing really offensive either. It's not hard to find a better blueberry beer, and I recommend Sea Dog.
