Not usually a "fruity beer" kinda guy but my brother offered and you never want to turn down a free beer, right?
I should've known by the aroma that this wasn't going to knock my socks off but I tasted it anyway. If I'm going to interrupt my regular beer drinking with a fruit beer I expect something that really tastes like fruit; fresh, fragrant, almost healthy. This wasn't it. The minimum amount of blueberry noted was quickly forgotten once the liquid left the palate. I knew there was a reason I didn't drink fruity beers often...

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.
