[Suggested Glassware: Lager Glass]

The pour was a medium golden amber with a large (2-3 finger) white pillowy head that receded slowly, lasting throughout and had excellent spotty lacing.

The aroma was very big on blueberry with a sweet biscuit malt, light citrus hops and a mildly sweet yeast with a hint of candi sugar.

The taste was lightly malty sweet with a decent blueberry presence that lasted throughout with the finish having a touch of citrus and a mild bitterness at the end. The flavor lasted a very short time after the swallow with the taste of blueberry out lasting all other flavors.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery texture and a prickly carbonation.

Overall this brew is OK, but nothing really special. Although, I think it would be fine on a hot summer’s day with some grilled Shish-Kabobs...

A nice crisp lager where the blueberries shine on the finish. Not the most complex beer, but clean and it delivers plenty of blueberry taste. I would pick this up again. (171 characters)

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. (340 characters)

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. (1,150 characters)

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. (750 characters)
