Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, golden-copper coloring with a frothy, foamy, white head. Great looking beer. Nose of toasted grains and a tart/sweet blueberry character. Very balanced nose. Flavors are light and smooth, with a subtle grain backbone and blended blueberry overtone. Light and balanced. Smooth bodied, with a grainy aftertaste. Slightly sharp, clean finish. This beer is very easy to drink. Also, it makes a mean Black and Blue.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz bottle into a Duvel tulip.
A: Clear orange body; thin head of frothy off-white foam. Mediocre retention and lacing. Ok.
S: It's fruity, but more in an overripe stone fruit kind of way than a fresh blueberry one. Some sweet caramel malt, too. Not exactly pleasant.
T: Malty up front, with caramel and toasted bread leading in to some blueberry flavor midway through. Dull, bittersweet finish. A bit of fruit on the aftertaste, but not much. Pretty boring.
M: Highly carbonated medium body; starts out a little prickly but ends with some nice creaminess.
O: I had this back-to-back with Atlantic's Bar Harbor Blueberry Ale, and was surprised how strikingly different they were. That beer, while far from spectacular, did a nice job highlighting the blueberries. Fruit is more of an afterthought here, but sadly the base beer isn't too interesting.
