I really enjoyed this. It had a real blueberry scent - not just generically fruity or artificial. Taste was more subtle and quite sweet, but still good. Color was pale yellow... straw-ish, maybe? Hardly hoppy at all; would be good for someone who is new to beer drinking. Good summer beer.

The Blue Point Blueberry Ale pours from the 12oz bottle into my tulip glass a deep amber color with red and purple highlights. A small bubbly white head quickly falls to a ring around the top. Aroma hits you immediately (even right after pouring) with a distinct blueberry puree. A pale toasted grain maltiness lies underneath, slightly biscuity. The blueberry is integrated nicely.
First sip brings a crisp, toasted pale malt that's instantly met by a slightly sweet blueberry fruitiness. Reminds me of freshly made blueberry pancakes. Flows down with a toasted blueberry aftertaste. An enjoyable fruit beer that manages to never become too sweet.
Mouthfeel is on the lighter side with plenty of fast moving bubbles. I'm finding this really easy to drink and imagine it would be nice to have in hand outside on a hot summer day. A quencing brew with a low abv. If I had access to this, I'd definetly reach for it again. Thanks to plaid75 for sending this my way.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The bottle has the abv listed at 4.6% and it describes the beer as being "A delicious golden ale with natural flavors added". That's about it for info and well I don't like the look of "natural flavors added".
Appearance: A finger of creamy white foam forms on top of a clear golden brew with some visible carbonation flowing up to though the body. The head quickly settles to a thin film and makes some lace at the top of the glass.
Smell: In the nose I get the aroma of blueberries/blueberry like candy right after the pop of the glass. In the glass it opens up to include some light hints of sweet white bready malt.
Taste/Palate: The flavor is right on with the nose. Light blonde or golden ale, check, blueberry flavor, check. It's not complex at all and the fruit flavor is leaning more towards some real blueberry extract with a lot of artificial sweetener mixed in. Its light bodied, slides down easy, and finishes with the slightest hop bitterness and a little left over fruity blueberry sweetness.
Notes: It is drinkable but not really all that memorable.

on tap, poured a clear soft golden color, minimal head, and left some lacing. Lovely blueberry nose. Obvious and fairly bold notes of sweet blueberries. Soft mouthfeel. Crisp and dry with some hops coming onto the tongue late. Nicely balanced and crafted fruit ale. Not for everybody, but probably would be a winner with folks new to beer and/or interested in learning. Nice summer beer.

Appears a ruby amber tone with a large bubbled thick pink tinted cream head leaves sporadic strands of lacing all around my pint.
Aroma light tart blueberry tones with a touch of metallic character and light toasted malt sweetness with minimal earthy, herbal hops going on it doesn't seem overly sweet just a natural air of fruitiness going on.
Flavor, a biscuit maltiness with light herbal hop bitterness and a coat of blueberry tartness really affecting the sides of the palate finishes pretty clean with some lasting blueberry aftermath but nothing too cloying or sugary here pretty well made.
Mouthfeel light creamy carbonation body is a bit airy almost like a nitro draft sensation going on, the only negative is the trace of the blueberry flavor that really coats the palate after each sip.
Drinkability flows pretty well definitely a step above most other attempts at fruit beers but I don't think this blueberry has as many antioxidants as the fruit does, but a solid summer sipper definitely refreshing and not too one dimensional.

12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Pours lightly hazy, amber colored, with a thin white head.
Aroma: blueberry pancakes with blueberry syrup and biscuits on the side.
Flavor: While the aroma suggests a sweet brew with a heavy handed contribution of blueberry flavoring, such is not the case: very balanced in terms of fruit/malt and sweet/tart.
Feel: medium-light body; rather crisp carbonation with a semi-dry finish.
O: well done and better than expected.

S: 12 oz bottle poured into a Blanche de Chambly glass
A: Clear, brilliant, and orange-yellow gold. Very slow carbonation, a bubble or two rises slowly to the top. The head is thin.
S: Wow, not complex, but, powerful. Blueberries waft from the glass. In fact, when first poured my girlfriend smelled it sitting far away from the glass.
T: Clear and crisp, it has a bit of malt, nice hop, without to much bitter, and in the finish fresh blueberry.
M: Not heavy, crisp rather than creamy.
D: Light, low in alcohol, with a fresh crisp refreshing taste.
Overall: I'm not sure what to think of beer made with fruit, but, this is one of the better ones. It has a slight fresh blueberry taste that comes in the finish and matches the slight crisp bitter from the hops. The smell is impressive and the taste isn't too sweet because the hops do help to bitter it out a bit. It is a nice spring seasonal.

(Served in an American pint glass)
A- This beer has a crystal clear golden auburn colored body with a very slight blueish tone to a sticky thin white head. There is a strong carbonation of big bubbles that try to keep the head going.
S- This beer has the strong smell of a sugary blueberry cereal followed by a soft lightly toasted malt sweetness.
T- The blueberry flavor is present but softer than the smell but it does increase as the beer warms. There is a dry club soda note to follow and then a soft lightly toasted malt and dry field corn finish.
M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a tight little fizz finish.
D- The odd little beer that made me go to the grocery and by a bag of cheap blueberry cereal. None of the flavor were offensive but I think one of these is enough for a while.

Notes are from 5/24
A pale yellow color, mostly clear with just a touch of haze off the tap, this beer grows a not exactly spritzy, maybe somewhat fizzy white head that gathers some density as it eases down. It's not too long before it's a thick foam on the top, managing mostly spotting as it goes.
The aroma showcases the blueberry, pretty pure and clean, with a pale malts base offering the dusty and dry earthy notes similar to wheat. A hint of grass speaks to the hops.
The taste is light, the blueberry still coming through but not as strongly over the musty, dry, earthy malts and grainy notes. Yeast is pretty strong but not overly heavy.
It's light-bodied, but I wouldn't call it thin. It works to bring out the softer flavors and brings a crisp bite while offering some smoothness as well.
