A very pleasant surprise. Figured I hate it, as it isn't big and dark and malty-caramelly-roasty. The blueberries I was pretty sure I'd dislike in there.

I poured it into a regular ol' pint and it produced a two finger head, which settled down quickly and went away. Noticeable but not overpowering smell of blueberries, which also fades as beer warms. When at its coldest, blueberries are subtly but definitely tasted first, and then a rather light but refreshing beer makes itself known. By the end of the glass, the beer taste is coming first and the blueberries are finishing.

I thought the beer managed to strike a nice balance of fruit and beer taste. I can see grabbing a couple more of these in the heat of next summer.
