Notes/Commercial Description:
Blonde coloured ale with the wonderful essence of fresh blueberries. Sweet flavours of peppery blueberries, malts and spicy hops make this one a winner all the way. A one-of-a-kind refresher.

Purchased the can from local LCBO solely to rate and with low expectations - there's a reason one does not typically taste "blueberries" in beer!

Pours a golden straw colour with very little white head - looks like many a macro lager. Aroma of blueberry essence, not fresh fruit, with a hint of cereal graininess in the background. Flavour is likewise very blueberry-forward, with an "extract" juiciness that overwhelms all other tastes. Some grains still present in the finish after the berries have subsided.

A bit of a disappointment, but may be a good gateway beer for an otherwise "cooler" or cocktail drinker. More of a shame in that Pump House produces one of the best APA's I've ever enjoyed in Canada and I can't fathom how this blueberry ale is available at the LCBO while the magnificent IPA is not...

Had this several times out west but no formal review.

A - Pours a nice golden colour, finger of was with little retention or lacing.

S - Blueberries donate with a bready wheat finish.

T - Much like the nose with the blueberries coming through off the top and a bready wheat flavour that lingers on the palette. the blueberries aren't artificial in nature, which is nice, and they offer up a tart finish.

M - Medium, smooth and wet.

O - This delivers a solid fruit flavour without overwhelming the palette. Easy drinking and refreshing. One of my favorite blueberry ales.
