Quick review - medium to foamy in the mouth (as it warms), mildly bitter hoppy tasting and smelling, blueberry seems to be largely in the smell.
I poured it in a standard American pint glass. The color was an orangey/dark brown that made me think of carrots for some reason with a thick head that dissipated leaving no lacing.
It smelled slightly hoppy and definitely bluberry. No surprise.
The taste was slightly hoppy, slightly bitter, and very slightly blueberry. As the beer warmed, the bitter-ness almost turned artificial or chemical.
The mouthfeel was medium thick, foaming as it warmed.
I had this beer once. That was enough.

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.
