Served in a Duvel Tulip glass, poured from a 12 oz. bottle. I scaveneged this one from my 'cellar' with freshness dated to Feb. of last year. Still good, though.
A - standard orange-brown ale with a shade of violet. Almost looks like a mature red wine.
S - Lots of vibrant, fresh blueberry over the yeasty, hoppy aroma. Excellent.
T - At first I thought "Where did the blueberries go?" as I tasted almost nothing of them on my first sip. Continued sips yielded a subtle, pleasant blueberry flavor to an otherwise standard ale.
M - Leaves a slight tingle on the tongue with its high carbonation. Otherwise, appropriately smooth and medium-bodied.
D - Very drinkable. It leaves little bitterness on the palate, and isn't very heavy at all. If I had more, I'd definitely drink another one.
Overall - The blueberry isn't exactly perfectly melded with the ale, but it is an enjoyable brew. Give it a try if you like some fruitiness in your beer.

Overall the best fruit-beer I've ever had. Enjoyed this at the Bangor Brew Fest and have savored a six pack at least once a month since. Very robust blueberry taste and freshness, but i don't think this flavor would mix well with a stout as it is just too powerful. Great for beginners starting on craft/micro-brew beer looking for a delightful mix of seasonal flavors and costal brews. I have really enjoyed it, I'm sure you will!

Served in a pint glass without mentionable head. Appears to be coppery-brown in color in the darkened room. Location is a restaurant I've never visited before.
Fragrance is lightly fruity & beer - without being overwhelming at all.
Taste is complex & ever changing. Light fruit flavor up front transitions to a much stronger, not-quite-skunked bite with both malt & hop flavors present, but a bit odd. Swallow, and the flavors mellow, becoming rounder, more of a light-brown ale. The finish is crisper, hops & bubbles are more present and a hint of the fruit returns.
Mouthfeel is pleasant - a light brown ale with a lively finish.
Overall, interesting. I'd like to try it again in a different location to be certain.
