Appearance - It a cloudy orangish amber color, with a thick head.

Smell - A fruity smell, with malts.

Taste - Malty with the tart blueberry flavor in the background, not much of the hops coming through.

Mouthfeel - Good carbonation and body.

Overall - Not bad, but I don't think the hops and the blueberries work together well in this lager.

On tap at the Common Table.

The beer pours a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma has a touch of biscuit malt, but what really comes through is a ton of sweet blueberries. The flavor is more of the same. The blueberry notes add some nice flavor, as well as a good bit of sugary sweetness. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a fairly hazy golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big four finger white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of creamy lacing around the glass.

Smell: A sweet and fairly tart aroma of blueberry fruit and bready malt. Upfront hints of fruity blueberry juice along with light hints of citrus orange. Sweet hints of honey. Bready malt hints of biscuit, grains, lager yeast, and cracker. Hops are very light. Very blueberry forward giving a sweet fruit cake like scent. Solid smell.

Taste: Like the smell, a sweet fruit forward taste of blueberries along with some citrus and bready malts. Lots of blueberry taste upfront followed by a decent citrus presence with notes of orange and lemon. Soft bready malts with notes of biscuit, lager yeast, wheat, grains, and cracker. Sweet notes of honey and sugar. A pretty decent fruit forward taste.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp, creamy, and very smooth.

Overall: A pretty decent fruit beer. Nice blueberry flavor and honey notes that avoid becoming too sweet.

Summer sampler complete with token fruit wheat fizzy beer to complement the Boston Lager, and the Summer Ale. This one pours bright golden with a slight haziness large slight off white head flowing nicely, leaves behind fine speckled lacing. Aroma gives off some tart notes of citrus and berry jam, pretty one noted sharp wheat accents. Flavor brings tart berry jam with sharp wheat ale acidity, biscuit dough yeast cake action complements with a hint of citrus in each sip. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with full on flowing carbonation not too spritzed up or overdone in anyway linger natural blueberry flavors between sips. Overall not my cup of tea part of a sampler refreshing summery it fills the quota and there's really nothing too off.
