got this from Clarkvv back in Nov. 04 so as I was clean out the refrig. I thought I would open this to see how it held up. poured a nice rich honey with a small off white head. aroma just a hint of blueberries, with honey and the smell of pancakes, orange and a small amount of hops. flavor honey with blueberries the hops are a little more prevalent. would have like to compare this to a fresh one

i approached this beer with some trepidation because the only other blueberry beer ive had got poured down the sink it was so bad. the pour was pretty encouraging though. clear, orangey red beer with some carbonation and no head. nice looking beer. very nice understated blueberry odor along with the malt smell. taste has some bitter maltiness, some fresh hoppiness and then mild blueberries on the finish. so nice to have just the hint of blueberries and not an all out assault. thin mouthfeel. a good drink, would be really great in the late summer or early fall. im impressed with my first beer from back road.

A large psfft of escaping CO2 burst out when I cracked this one open. Loads of carbonation with a large, sturdy, lasting head and walls of cascading bubbles. Very hazy brown body takes on a pretty, deep red hue in the light. Blueberry pie filling and something sharp (lemon zest?) top the nose, reminding me of the blueberry cake with cream cheese icing my mom makes. A bit of lingering bitterness in the finish, slightly metallic. Flavor is a bit weak after the aroma.
