I was told this was Beer Works' best beer. I beg to differ, but it was definitely interesting.

A - dark golden color, dark cream foam with hint of that blueish/purplish color you see when you squish a blueberry, but that might have come from the blueberry garnish in the beer. The blueberries in the beer seemed frozen, but definitely a fun and interesting take on a beer.

S - Not a very strong smell, had a sort of crisp melon/banana smell.

T - Not very complex, but the flavor matched well with the blueberry aspect

M - short linger, with a bit of an acid feel

Pours a one finger white head that vanishes quickly leaving no lace. Nearly clear light straw color. Good carbonation and light bodied. Faint blueberry nose and flavor is a watery, tart blueberry, good lawnmower beer and not much else. $1.99 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Marlboro, MA.
