Gotta say that this one looked real nice. It was a little cloudy, tan with tinges of orange, and had a real nice white head that just didn't want to go away. Five minutes after pouring it still has a real nice 1/4" dense white head.

I get a pretty nice blueberry smell from my glass, and this is the primary aroma. Everything else takes a backseat to the blueberries, and this follows into the taste. There's an ample malty backbone that doesn't overpower the fruitiness at all. Hops are light but there's enough bitterness to leave a nicely balanced beer.

The body is light and it's very drinkable. A moderately sweet, fruity aftertaste lingers.

Overall it's a nice summer beer, and one that goes well with the summer mixer 12 packs. I could personally do with a touch less blueberry, but I think that's more my tastes than anything flawed about this beer. Sam Adams probably nailed their intentions on this one perfectly. Anyone who like blueberries, blueberry beers, or even just fruity beers or lagers will probably enjoy this brew.

A-pours a yellow straw color with a white foamy head with nice retention
S-lots of blueberry, bit of malt and hop aroma lingering in the background
T-sweet malt coupled with more strong blueberry with hops proving bitterness but not lending much in the way of flavor.
M-medium-light bodied, easy drinking
O-Pretty much what I expected, a blueberry dominated easy drinking brew. I'm not a huge fan of fruit beers, but its your typical brew

Pours a cloudy golden, with a nice white head and lovely, ornate lace.

Aroma is, unsurprisingly, heavy on the blueberry. Refreshing, light, and enticing.

Taste is nicely blueberry, but it's a pleasant natural flavor, rather than a weird or artificial one. Indeed, this one's summery, light, and very enjoyable. Sure, it's not super complex or heavy-duty, and seasoned hop-heads and beer nerds will turn up their noses here, but I like this Blueberry Hill Lager just fine, thanks.

Got this out of the Summer pack from Costco, figure I'd try this one out. Served in a tulip.

A: Pours a clear orange, amber color with a half inch off white head that dissipates fast with good retention and ample amounts of lacing.

S: Smells of wheat, grains, blueberries, yeast, barley, malts

T: Meh, tastes alright, a bit sweet, hints of yeast, a bit of blueberry, wheat, grains

M: Kind of over carbonated, medium bodied, yeah, too much carbonation, not enough balance and flavor.

O: Meh, this was alright, not really a fruity beer kind of guy. This was not horrible, it was alright, it just was not exciting or enticing to me. I'll have no problem finishing the pack but I probably won't seek them out again.

3.49/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

LOOK: Golden colored brew with a chill haze. Solid frothy foam forms and leaves a good amount of lace.

SMELL: Blueberry, crusty bread, lager yeast.

TASTE: Lager like with bread and faint toffee, fades to blueberry cereal. There is a balancing citrusy, herbal bitterness. Wheat perhaps was used. Firmly malty. Finishes with a note of blueberry skin.

FEEL: Medium bodied, smooth, creamy and well carbonated.

OVERALL: For a lager, it's full enough. For a fruit beer, it's fruity and fresh enough. Wasn't amazing but I quite liked the bitterness from the Tettnang hop variety used here. Helped the flavor a bit.
