3.43/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a very hazy light orange-amber with a fluffy white head. Lacing is approved.

Nose offers blueberry skins, artificial lemon, and more citrus from the Tettnang. Some orange, some sweet cracker, and pale malts. White bread notes remind me of the smell of angel food cake and blueberry waffle.

The flavor is a little spicy, but a lot fruity. Some freshness to the blueberries was preserved, other nuances remind me of Bubble Yum. Bubble gum, lemony hops, sweet pale malts, and traces of peppery yeastiness. Finish is short and dead.

Sam manages to put a little girth in the body of their summer seasonals. This is no exception. Oily medium for a session fruit lager. Smooth. Carb offers some bite.

Merely okay. Average. How good can a blueberry lager be, anyways?

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

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.

Smooth mouthfeel.

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.
