Light gold color, medium head, with a slight berry nose. A light bodied ale, nicely malty and medium hopped. Blueberry flavoring subtle, not very sweet. Mild smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is slightly fruity, yet slightly bitter.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Look – pale golden color, like a pale Hefeweizen. Hazy, with about five fingers’ worth of frothy off-white colored foam that dissipates somewhat slowly.

Smell – much like it claims, it has a fruity/berry type of smell, but more on the artificial side. It doesn’t feel like it has real blueberries added to the mix, but that would explain the name wouldn’t it?

Taste – much like the smell, the taste is full of a berry-like flavor, but that’s all it is, a flavor. As a beer, it’s on the malty side, and a bit pungiant or musky. There’s a bitterness in the finish that goes away very quickly.

Mouthfeel – pretty well balanced, but does lean a little more on the watery side.

Overall – not a very thought-provoking beer. Decent taste though.

Tasted from tap next to Boulder Kinda Blue. This won.

A - rather uninspiring copper hue with lackluster carbonation and not much head so to speak of.

S - Smells like wheat with a little blueberry going on, sweet cereal malts too.

T - It actually tastes good, like blueberry pancakes or muffins, rather nice.

M - medium to light bodied but with good textural balance.

D - ehhh... it's good but only in moderation

Brought this one back from San Diego for my wife. Pours a hazy yellow color, with quite a few floaties and a decent finger of white head. Very nice blueberry aroma is immediately evident, along with a little bit of yeast. On the palate, this is mostly blueberries, with just a hint of sweet malt. Not a great fruit beer, but decent.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

poured into a pint glass...

A: pours a hazy yellow-orangeish body with a tiny head that dessipates very quickly.

S: light hints of blueberry and a mild malt scent come out.

T: the first thing i notice is that its got alot of carbonation. not so familiar with this style, so im not sure if this is common in fruit ales. Its go a bit of a chemical/artificial taste to it.

M: mouthfeel is light-medium bodied.

D: might be ok on a hot day for my girl, but definitely cannot replace a good weizenbier for me.

A: Yellow haze w/no head.

S: Can't smell much on this one maybe just a little fruit.

T: Good, totally light and fruity. Great alternative to a hefe on a summer day me thinks. Also, I bet chicks will dig this beer!

M: Like a soft drink. Leaves a fizzy/fruity flavor.

D: Very high. I'd have never ordered it but the bartender poured it by accident and offered it to me free, so I figured what the heck...I was pleased. I'm going to pick some up for the gf.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A - A hazy golden color with a faint lavender tint. Medium sized head that faded quickly. Some scattered flecks of lacing linger.

S - Predominantly light malt on the nose, there is also some clean smelling noble hops and some subtle blueberry. Not bad.

T - First, there is the light malt, then comes a slightly sweet, tart flavor - blueberries I presume, although it doesn't taste much like real blueberries. Aftertaste has some crisp, clean tasting noble hops, but it is dominated by a lingering tartness and some malt.

M - High carbonation, almost soda-esque, numbing, thin, a little refreshing.

D - Meh. Okay. I am generally not pleased by fruit beers. This one is not too artificial tasting. It is more mediocre than bad.

Beers pours a golden straw color with an upfront smell of blueberries. Not a very complex beer, cant taste much hops, can only taste water, pepper, and blueberry finish. I've never been impressed with many of Marin Brewings beer. This one feels like it's been sprayed with pepper mace. If you like spicy beers with a hint of blueberry, this one's for you.

The blueberry pours a hazy straw color. The head is foamy and then takes off pretty quickly.

I enjoyed the smell of this beer. You really could smell a great citrus with blueberries. Deep in is a little hint of a maltiness.

The taste was good. It is definitely a refreshing type of a beer. Not a lot of complexity to it.

Since the beer was so light to me it didn't leave much for mouthfeel.

I would drink this beer once or twice a year during the summer months of July, August or September.
