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.

4.05/5  rDev +23.5%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden color with a nice white head. The carbonation is really impressive. Although the head receeds too quickly, the incredible carbonation keeps things in play and there is lacing all the way down.

Smell: Only sweet blueberries.

Taste: A fruity/citrusy blueberry blend.

Mouthfeel: Watery and light, awesome and perfect carbonation.

I love this beer. It's different, delicious, and satisfying. I could drink this beer all day and be happy. I love the carbonation feel in my mouth. This beer is good for any occasion whether it be mowing or partying.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle. Best before August 2014. Served in a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a golden orange color with 2 fingers of a white soapy head. Body is somewhat hazy with a general unfiltered look and some moderate visible carbonation. Decent head retention and great lacing.

Smell: Sweet blueberry, grape candy, lager yeast and maybe a hint of wheat. Not a whole lot going on outside of the blueberry aroma.

Taste: Pretty much more of the same. Blueberry (which comes off a bit more artificial than in the aroma), cereal grain, slight citrus.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, soft mouthfeel with medium levels of gentle carbonation. Refreshing and finishes relatively clean.

Overall: Pretty straightforward stuff. Not complex and nothing spectacular by any means, but it's refreshing and tasty enough for what it is.

"A fresh take on a fruit beer. This crisp, unfiltered lager is aged on blueberries for a pleasant blueberry aroma and taste. To take this fruity character in a new direction, we brewed with Tettnang Noble hops for an added subtle citrus note. A delicious blend of flavors with a smooth lager finish." Brewed in the style of a Fruit Lager with blueberries added. This is the limited release add-in

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Samuel Adams perfect pint glass. Served above 58º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a crisp foamy off-white head over a medium-amber body with mild haziness and plentiful carbonation. Retention is average at best, lacing is light and spotty. 3.5

(Smell) Aroma of profound tart and lightly sweet blueberry up front, with a slightly lesser wheat and pale malt body behind. A milder blend of aromas brings a noticeable sweet citrus to diversify the aroma somewhat. This certainly has a significant blueberry emphasis going for it, it may have been more universally enjoyable if the blueberry was more of an accent. Either way, for blueberry lovers, this may be one of the most aromatically blueberry-forward beers I've ever smelled. I place the potency on high, well above the aromatic ferocity of Sunset Wheat and SweetWater Blue. 3.25

(Taste) Unlike wheat beers with blueberry and citrus accent, Blueberry Hill Lager plays little to no wheat malt profile, relying on a simple bare-bones malt profile to call out the fruit. Grain, citrus peel and blueberry are noticeable up front- a bit gruff and edgy with a touch of inevitable fruit saccharinity. Finishes with a touch of grain alcohol and a loud blueberry sweetness. Blueberry would still have been preferable as an accent and not the central focus of this beer. Overall the flavor was certainly Blueberry-heavy but lacking in malt complexity, thus the imperfections glared brighter than they should have. 3.25

(Mouthfeel) Texture is chewy, grainy, mildly tart. Carbonation adds some light crispness to the texture. Body is medium/heavy for the style, medium overall. Alcohol presence is above moderate, a bit easily called out against the simplicity of the very bold, but one-dimensional fruit flavor additives. The drink should be much easier to consume due to the style. 3

(Overall) This is an experiment I do not regret trying, but a beer I wouldn't dream of green lighting to the public. The blueberry is unapologetically overbearing for a lager beer's drinkability and a lack of malt diversity makes it stand fairly unchallenged. The presence of citrus adds some favorable variety to the the flavor but stands equally out-of-place. Altogether the flavor is predictable but guaranteed not to be to everybody's liking. An inviting comparison to the Berry-Weisse and Sunset Wheat crowd, of course Samuel Adams can do outrageously fruity beers too! 3.25

I was going to just pick up this single just to try but I got a six-pack because some friends were coming over. I don't think I'm a fan of fruit beers but here goes...

Poured from a 12 oz. brown bottle with the date code marked on the label (notched Sept) into a pint glass and I get 1/2 fingers of head.

A: Pours a straw color with 1/2 fingers of head that dissipates quickly to leave a covering on the top of my glass. Fairly good lacing for a lager.

S: I smell blueberries mostly. As the beer warms up there is smell the of dried grass and corn. It is not really unpleasant but the corn is a smell I have to question.

T: Taste follows smell. I taste blueberry big time and dry grass. It finishes bitter until the very end which is blueberries once again. It is not juicy like I would have maybe guessed it to be but more dry and refreshing.

M: Medium bodied and carbonated. Goes down good enough but this is not a beer that I could drink after a long hot AZ day in the sun.

O: This beer is ok. I have to say that the women who don't really like the smell of beer in general seem to enjoy the smell of this beer. For that I have to give it a little higher rating. Overall, it is not a beer that I would gravitate toward but it is drinkable.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Bottle: Poured a light yellow color lager with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of fake blueberry syrup with overly sweet malt base. Taste is also dominated by this fake blueberry syrup with overly sweet aftertaste. Body is light with good carbonation. This one is a bit disappointing coming from Sam Adams.

A-Hazy orange, nice carbonation, two finger head.

S-Just blueberries, not thing else. But it is not artificial and it smells great.

T-Starts with blueberries, which is now borderline artificial. Then nothing in the finish. Absolutely nothing.

M-Lighter, nice carbonation, was expecting it to be crisper.

O-If there was something in the finish the beer would be greatly improved. But right now it is just some semi-artificial blueberries.

Lighter yellow than I thought it would be, and lighter head than I thought I'd see. Not impressed.

I get the scent of blueberry, but this is very much a lager--I like the smell and am looking forward to trying this.

This is a miss on taste. It is too bitter and the blueberry strains to meld with the rest of the flavors. It tastes disjointed and never comes together.

The body is good, but there is an unpleasant bitter aftertaste. This is one of the few Sam selections I have no interest in finishing.

I do not care for this beer at all. It reminds me of orange juice after brushing your teeth--that awful taste. Not enjoyable.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A - Golden straw, clear. One and a half fingers of white head which sticks around for a short while.

S - Really delicious smell of blueberries. Reminds me of a sort of blueberry syrup. Would be a great waffle pairing.

T - Really strong blueberry taste up front, with corn on the back edge. A pretty standard lager with a blueberry twist. Easy drinking, no alcohol to speak of.

M - A bit thin, moderate carbonation. Nothing good, nothing bad.

O - Well it's just like the name suggests. A decent lager with huge blueberry aroma and taste, with the standard corn finish. I could kick a few of these back, and I suspect it would go well with breakfast (waffles, pancakes, pastries, etc).

12oz Bottle from the Potsdam NY IGA for $2

Appearance - Slightly hazy yellow colour with an average size fizzy off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes.

Smell - Corn, apples, blueberries, grains

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste corn, apples, and grains. There is also some blueberries and something along the lines of a grape Popsicle.

Overall – I am by no means a big fan of fruit beers, but this one isn't too bad. It's refreshing in a way and has a nice appearance in the glass. Worth it to try once I guess.

Picked up a part of the summer variety case at the end of June from Costco for $22.99. Best by October 2013.

Beer poured a cloudy golden orange with a decent white head that dissipated quickly.

Nose is...blueberries.

Taste is heavy on the blueberries and light on the hops. It is pretty sweet but so far not cloying.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with some moderate carbonation to make it somewhat refreshing.

Overall this is better than what i expected. It is sweet but not so much that a 2nd maybe in order. Would make a better dessert beer than lawnmower brew.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into one of my pint glasses, this beer pours quite a cloudy/hazy medium golden color with a nice orange hue. White head is 1/2 inch thick when first poured before settling very quickly to a nice thick/medium sized ring lining the inside of my glass. Also has some pretty big clouds of yeast floating in the beer slowly making their way down to the bottom of teh glass. Never seen that before in any beer I've had from these guys. iIteresting Pretty decent lacing too, but this has the worst head retention I've encountered with a Sam Adams beers, save for the all but totally uncarbonated Triple Bock. Aromas of biscuity, bready, toasted malt and blueberry are certainly present along with a hint of honey and a bit of citrus. Good mix of flavors with a nice toasted, bready, biscuity malt sweetness upfront along with the blueberries and a bit of honey that give way to a nice citrus hop presence that sit on the back of the tongue. Has a crisp, smooth, light to medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate to heavy carbonation. Easy to drink in the way good beer ought to be. Really enjoyed this on a cool summer night here in Cleveland, OH. Quite refreshing.

Poured from the 12oz bottle into a standard pint glass.

I just wasn't really into this beer from the get go. Seemed like they just squeezed some blueberry syrup into another beer, so it didn't mix quite right. The blueberry taste was not super in-your-face, as I had imagined it did from the smell, but still felt kind of disjointed, as if it was blueberries AND beer, rather than having that smooth blueberry pie or muffin flavor that these types of beers can sometimes accomplish.

Honestly, I wouldn't have looked for this beer in the first place, but since it came in the summer sampler I gave it a go. Overall not undrinkable and not terrible. Still wouldn't look for this beer outside of the sampler, and probably won't want another one. Mediocre.

Pours a hazy golden straw color very much like a wheat brew. The white head is short and sudsy, leaving some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is faint. It is sweet and bready and has a blueberry muffin batter smell to it.

The taste has a slightly bigger blueberry muffin presence than the nose. Not as sweet and more muffin like. There is a light grainy note as well as some grassy hops. Okay, needs more blueberry and less grain.

The feel is light to moderate with moderate carbonation. Sweet on the palate but it is quite dry in the finish, almost astringent. Since it is a lager I would think it would be more crisp.

Another ho-hum fruit beer. The blueberry flavor isn't bad.

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.

O - I was pleasantly surprised with this beer. Overall a good summer fruit beer with hints of tartness and bitterness and not overly sweet. Great drinkability.

A: Orange hue with a 1/2 finger of fizzy off white head. The head fades and leaves no real lacing on the glass.

S: Smells like a blueberry tart. Very sweet blueberry aroma with a hint of pastry, bready aroma as well.

T: Very smooth blueberry flavor that finishes clean. Hints of bread, or blueberry pie like crust with a hint of citrus in the finish. Not to sweet, and pretty well balanced finish.

M: Very thin fizzy mouthfeel.

O: Another good entry beer for people who do not drink beer often. I feel this beer has a strong fruit base that would help transition people into the craft beer movement. Very good blueberry aroma and taste that the beer blends well with, highlighting the blueberry flavor above all other flavors.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a hazy gold with a big, creamy white head that leaves a modest amount of lacing once it settles.

S: Ripe blueberries hit the nose first, and are eventually followed by subtler scents of lemon, lime, grass, straw, herbs, cream, and biscuit.

T: Notes of minerals, ripe blueberries, lemon, lime, fresh herbs, grass, straw, grain, light butter, cream, crackers, and biscuit flit across the palate. The finish is short and straight-forward with notes of blueberry highlighted by biscuit, minerals, and very mild lemony hops.

M: Light in body and relatively dry. Carbonation is nice and crisp. A treat to drink on a hot day.

O: Not a bad fruit beer at all and I tend to be a bit wary of the fruit beers Samuel Adams produces. It isn't deep, complex, or terribly exciting, but Blueberry Hill Lager definitely hits the spot on a hot day. I definitely would not turn this down and would probably seek it out again.

Poured into a Sam Adams glass.

Color is a pale hazy yellow with lots of bubbles. Initial head was about an inch, that dissolved quickly to a thin layer of bubbles with moderate lacing.

Smell is blueberries. Period. My wife smelled "beer", but she says that about all beers. To me, all I could really discern was the berries, almost as if I was smelling a bowl of them.

Taste is like the smell. Blueberries, with a slight bitterness in the back. Not overpowering, but takes a few sips to get used to it.

Mouthfeel is good enough, not to thin, not too thick. Pleasant enough to dink.

Overall an ok brew, not sure if I would buy it in a six pack. I'm not against fruit beers ( I love the Cherry Wheat, and I'm a HUGE fan of pumpkin ales) but I don't think ALL fruit should be used in beer.

A- great shade of hazy orange amber with a big sticky dense white head with a tint of yellow. Retention and lacing are outstanding for the style. Thick sheets blanket the glass. Creamy foam isn't moving. The head retains itself until the beer is gone. No etchings on this old school beer glass either. You know, the kind with hops printed around the rim and a horse drawn carriage by the rim. Yeah.

S- fresh ripe blueberry aroma fills my square as soon as the bottle is cracked and more so after it's been poured. Some citric floral hops behind that with nutty grainy aromas. This is like blueberry cracked out alpine spring honestly. Exceptional.

T- taste is somewhat lacking compared to all the other great aspects of this beer. The blueberry part is fine- not overpowering, not candyish, but the flavor of the beer itself doesn't match up. Honey sweetish malts combined with cracker and lightly bitter noble hops that do little to combat the sweetness. What a shame. Blueberry fades leaving only a lingering of the skin in the finish with more sweetness and earthy hops.

MF- this is like almost nitro creamy. Being unfiltered amps up the body on this one out to the space station. Powdery yeast, slight tannins.

D- too bad for the subpar flavor, this beer had a lot going for it. Everything else hit the spot though.

12 oz bottle marked best before November. Beer pours very cloudy and yellow in color, with a thin white head. Serious aroma -- smells like opening a box of blueberry muffins -- would be great if it was time for breakfast, but as a beer it's kind of a turnoff. Fortunately the berries are mostly in the nose, not the flavor. Flavor is mild and mostly of a citrusy kind of lager, with a gentler hint of blueberry. Not terribly sweet for a fruit beer, though this is obviously no lambic.

As far as the Sam Adams Beers of Summer variety pack goes, this is, surprisingly, a stand out hit. Not a great beer, but at least it delivers what it promises.

Pours a very slightly hazy golden yellow color, about half a finger of white head which fades quickly and leaves no lacing.

Smell has a subtle blueberry aroma mixed in the sweet malt.

Taste starts out with a sweet malt backing, a very artificial blueberry flavor melds in, finishes with a hopper finish than I would have thought but the bitterness seems a bit off when combined with the blueberry flavoring, carbonation is medium high.

Not much to write about, fairly bland for a fruit beer or other blueberry beers on the market.

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.
