Standard pry off bottle poured into a pint glass, the Blueberry Hill pours a lightly hazed deep straw in color and with half an inch of soapy white foam. Offers fair retention and some sticky lace.
Aroma of pale malt with some light citrus accompanying the more pleasant than anticipated blueberry character. Flavor follows suite with a subtle berry grain flavor, a lightly chalky aftertaste followed by a brief cleansing sweetness. Blueberry notes don't come across as artificial and are present yet not overdone in my view. Decent feel with a light grain character and ample carbonation. Interesting brew and not overdone. Subtle and pleasant yet with enough fruit character to keep it interesting. For a while anyway.

At first I thought to myself "Ok, just another beer w/ fruit flavor added". Not a bad thing, as I like SA's Cherry Wheat and others, but I've never had one that's outstanding. This beer however, is pretty close.
Poured nicely and produced a good color. Typical lighter-Sam Adams smell with hints of blueberry, and even a cinnamon-ish smell.
Taste was excellent. Taste of the berries isn't overpowering like some batches of Cherry Wheat seem to be, nor is it barely there as is the case in with other "fruity" beers I've tried. A smooth, yet very flavorful and strong taste. Typical SA taste w/ a healthy hint of fresh-tasting blueberry flavor.
A darn good beer, wish I could find these in 6er's or 12er's. Don't think they do that, though. One of the few highlights of this year's Summer Variety Pack.

I just got done cutting the grass and Sammy A's blueberry hill lager is great! The beer pours a hazy orange copper with white head that is lacing. The scent has the typical Sam Adams base with hints of blueberry. The first swig brought memories of blueberry pie...a biscuit base with blueberry fruit adornments. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall I think it is a great fruit style beer with without being over the top!!

Creative attempt (and success IMO) at a fruit beer in a lager style. Works very well. The blueberry is present in the nose more so than on the palate - doesn't overpower but melds nicely with the lemony-citrus note from the hops and the cereal notes from the malts. Nothing jumps out but there's an overall understated flavor profile that offers a brew that is easy drinking while still being unique. My first in the Sam Adams Summer pack was a success!
