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.

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).
