i try and taste any sam adams beer i see...their brewery in boston was the first brewery tour i ever went on, so i hold a soft spot in my heart for their beers. also the first beers i really liked, before getting into some really hoppy beers out there were fruit beers. when i saw this blueberry hill i was pretty interested in trying it. i like sweetwater blue and leinenkugel's sunset wheat- so i was keen on seeing what this one was all about. it pours a cloudy golden yellow. the smell was more hops and less blueberry. the taste is way more packed with blueberry flavor than the smell would let on. also, this beer isnt as sweet to me as the sweetwater and sunset wheat, which is fine. those 2 in comparison tend to get the old head throbbing when i drink a ton of them- which i attribute to the sweetness. i think there is enough tang from the hops to make this a really good fruit beer. i think this one could appeal to hoppy beer fans as well as fruit beer fans.

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.
