Pours a mild golden color with a one-finger head into my glass. Good presentation. Good color, etc.

Lots of blueberry essence mixed with clove and wheat. Not a surprise here. What I expected.

Ditto on flavor. Blueberry essence is subdued in favor of toasty, sweet malt. Very crisp. I like that the focus is back on the base beer and not just the flavoring.

Lingering blueberry essence and sweet, toasty malt. Very tasty.

I like this! hard to figure out the "best of" but it's not cloying or too artificial.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

It pours out a golden color with a white head. Aroma? Blueberries. Taste? Blueberries. Mouthfeel? Not blueberries. It's lighter and briskly carbonated. Drink this if you want your beer to taste like blueberries. Avoid it if you don't want your beer to taste like blueberries. It is what it claims to be on the label, nothing more, nothing less.

Reviewed from notes from 3/13/12. 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance-light yellow/golden with white head

Smell-Juicy, fresh blueberries. Also, pick up on sugar

Taste-Right on par with the nose, I get a lot of fresh-blueberry taste through and through in this beer. The profile reminds me of fresh/organic blueberries. This is definitely sessionable and I will pick up throughout the summer and possibly spring too.

Mouthfeel-Well carbonated, light.

Overall-I have been searching for a blueberry beer and have found my match. Got really lucky with this one-since BluePoint is well represented here in upstate NY. Can't wait for warmer days so I can buy again.

This beer does some things adequately, but nothing really well. It's very fruity with this amazing blueberry aroma hitting you hard from the opening. My issue here is that there is little bitter to balance off of the sweet. It's as if they tried to bury the ale in blueberry and citrus. Mouthfeel was watery as well. As I type, I'm sitting here trying to finish it. Very one-note, not sweet enough to be a dessert beer, too sweet for regular beer drinking. Boring blueberry beer.

Got this one from a great east coast BA'er.

Poured a very beautiful medium amber gold that was nearly non-translucent but appeared to be totally filtered. Produced a stark white head that reduced to a mere inconsistent lace ring around the glass. Smalls are overwhelmingly blueberry! The tastes are not very carbonated as some have posted. Perhaps it's a less than fresh bottle at this point. Has the backend taste and mouthfeel of a Blue Moon. For only a 4.6% abv brew, it's more than a mouthfool. Seems heavier. Decent brew. Come summer time, I'll take a Leine's Berryweiss over this one anytime. Glad I tried it.

Cheers!
