Pours a golden caramel in color with reddish hues. Fizzy tan head that disappears to nothing. Malty nose with hints of blueberry. Somewhat perfumey with a touch of hops. The mouthfeel is thinnish and carbonated. The taste is uninspiring and bland. Very quiet front. Everything arrives in the finish. There's toasted malt with a blend of caramel. Hop dryness wraps things up.
It's amazing the odd lack of flavor this beer exhibits. I didn't expect to be overwhelmed by a blueberry flavor, but being a blueberry ale, it's only apparent in the nose. Nothing carries into the taste. I can't even suggest something to pair this with... perhaps best by itself or left on the store shelf.

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.
