Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a cloudy, golden color with a tinge of blue. There is a small off white head that lingers a bit and leaves some lacing. It has a lighter aroma. Hint of blueberry and some faint earthy hops. Malts, but no real sweetness. The taste is pretty good. Malts with some wheat, earthy notes and very subtle blueberry. A nice summer brew.

I generally am not a fan of fruity beers, but Moat Blueberry Ale has a kiss of blueberry and is extremely declious. Perfect summer brew after hiking in the white mountains.

Best way to enjoy (and cost effective) is on tap or via grogs directly from the brewery.

Pours a hazy light golden color with a decent sized white head that slowly dissipates to a cap on top. Light bready malt base with faint blueberry and light earthy hops. The flavor is like a light lager with a faint blueberry twang to it. Light bready pilsner malt with a hint of spice and some blueberry syrup buried deep underneath. Light to medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet watery mouthfeel. Bland, unexciting but technically nothing flawed here. The blueberry is too faint and the beer too uninspiring. Why on earth this 22oz bottle of 4.5% abv beer retails for north of 9 dollars boggles my mind.

Sampled on tap at the brewpub on October 9, 2012.

I have to admit that blueberry brews are difficult for me to review because although I love blueberries by themselves, I am not fond of them in beer. In this case it poured a hazy looking straw-yellow tone.

The aroma tends to be more on the buttery side than bringing out a blueberry character.

The body was thin to medium.

Where the blueberry nose fell down it rebooted itself in the taste as the blueberries were much more notable there. But there was still a kind of slick, buttery flavor which ultimately ended with a slight hop note and a lingering astringency. As far as the style goes there are others I prefer.
