Part of the Samuel Adams Beers of Summer Variety 12-pack - $13.99 at Publix in Woodstock, Georgia.
Appearance: Lightly hazy, light pale gold body with a smallish, short-lived, white head. Minimal lacing.
Smell: Not much in the way of yeast or malt or hop hints beyond the blueberry additive which takes up the bulk of the aroma.
Taste: Well, I guess they had to do something with all that extra Alpine Spring laying around. Soft pale malts with a cereal sweetness. A little bit of citrusy hop trying to peek around the blueberry flavoring. Just a little bit, though. Very low bitterness. A bit crackery on finish with varying degrees of blueberry depending on the size of your sip.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-soft carbonation.
Overall: Like so many soldiers in so many battles in so many wars, we are going to TAKE that hill. Blueberry Hill. As it seems like exactly the Alpine Spring with blueberry flavoring I would have the same main qualm, which is it needs a bit more crispness.

Hazy dull orange body, topped by three fingers of white foam. Drippy lace bits.
Assertive, pleasant, not overly aggressive blueberry aroma.
Tastes like a soft helles or export lager, with a pleasant dash of blueberries.
Do not come to this expecting Boston Lager in a fifty/fifty mix with blueberry juice. There is a lot less malt, a whole lot less hops, and the blueberries are well balanced. It's a nice summer quaffer, but not something I'd load up on.
