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!

Best by Sept. notched on label:
Pours golden with a thin, lasting white head that leaves lacing.
The smell is of blueberry bubblegum.
The taste is of blueberry juice and bubblegum. There is a cracker-like quality and a mild hoppy citric character in the back to give it a "beer" quality. Sweet, but has a tart touch and a mild dryness in the finish.
It is light-bodied with snappy, but not too fizzy, carbonation.
It has more character than just blueberry flavoring. Not a bad fruit beer.
