What is this, a want to be Blakes or a want to be weird version of Angry Orchard. I have tried to figure this one out and it still is a strange flavor profile. I think it reminds of weirdly skunked cider than it does beer.

Bought a 6-pack $8.29 Don Quijote
Smell of blueberries
Clear golden color
Light mouthfeel
Medium-light carbonation
Blueberry flavors reminds me of blueberry flavored gum, slight tartness, not overly sweet like the malt liquor fruit flavor types
Overall it delivers on what it says it is. Not for me, but I am not it's target audience.

Pours a clear golden color, lots of carbonation, no head at all.
Smells yeasty, of blueberries, and corn syrup, think IHOP blueberry pancakes syrup.
The blueberry flavor isn't as overly sweet as I thought, and dies fast in the mouth leaving nothing else, kindof good.
Mouthfeel is light, yet juicy, best part about this beverage so far.
Overall, not as terrible as I expected but not great either, mildly acceptable is party circumstances.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear light gold color with a small white head. The aroma is a very heavy fake sweet blyeberry smell. The taste matches the nose.

I will try to make this short an to the point. To me this was like one of those flavored ciders. Not a bad thing at all when yo want one. Just does not seem like a beer.
Color is gold with no head and light carbonation.
Smells very sweet and fruity with a rush of blueberry up front.
Taste is of tart apples with a touch of blueberry in the back of the taste.
Mouth is light with a dry finish.
Overall this was a winner with me. Seriously I picked this up for $6 a 12 pack at my grocer because the expiration date stamped on the bottle was 10-30. I picked up two twelve packs and me and the wife will gladly enjoy these cider/ale beer things.

This is packaged to look like a craft beer but Google Redds and it is inside a building owned by MillerCoors. It has ale on the label but it bears as much resemblance to an ale as an egg McMuffin has to an omelet. Barley Malt is listed 3rd on the ingredient list after corn syrup so it is mostly fermented corn syrup. The malt is added so it is classified as a malt beverage instead of a wine for tax purposes. It tastes and smells like an artificially flavored soda pop and not a very good one. This is what you get when a chemist, an accountant and an advertising executive sit down and design a product for teenage girls.

Incredible! I have been working diligently to eradicate The Bottle Backlog here at Chez Woody as well as getting The CANQuest (tm) back on track. This has enabled me to CANduct a number of brewery horizontals, but even I was incredulous when I realized that I have a slew of Redd's Ales of various stripes with which to not only perform a horizontal, but also a number of bottle/CAN side-by-sides.

SeCANdly, but since The CANQuest (tm) trumps all, the CAN.

From the CAN: "Limited Pick"; "Special Release"; "An Exceptionally Crisp Blueberry Ale".

I love getting back into The CANQuest, especially since everything begins with the Crack!, followed by a Glug, whether inverted or otherwise. The drawback to these pounder CANs is that if I CANduct an inverted Glug, the sheer volume CAN be tough to CANtrol, but I attempted it anyway. Once more, I got a fizzy, foamy finger of bone-white head with limited retention. Head retention does not seem to be a priority in this series. Color was solid Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9). In this case, I had to lean in for a sniff as the odor was not as pronounced as when I unscrewed the bottle's cap. The blueberry scent was softer here, commingled with a biscuity maltiness to make me think of blueberry muffins or blueberry pancakes or blueberry bread, all of which are favorites of mine. Likewise, the apple scent was not as pronounced, either. Hmm. Mouthfeel was medium, a bit bigger than from the bottle. The taste was full-on blueberry with a light, underlying tartness that I may or may not have been able to identify as apple. This was MUCH more like it! The blueberry flavor simply Pop!ped throughout, but I guess that it requires that you like blueberries. I do, so it was really a pleasant experience for me. Finish was semi-dry, which may seem counterintuitive to some, but fruit in alcohol usually does not impart a lot of sweetness. I had wondered about this one, which is why I originally had it after Raspberry, but that one does not have an approved pic. Peach & Strawberry may be sweet, but only time & tasting will tell. Edge to the CAN in this case.

First, the bottle. From the Bottle: "An Exceptionally Crisp Blueberry Ale".

I was again denied the Pop! of the cap, thanks to a screwed-up screw-off twist top. Once I got it off, the smell of blueberry was evident, even before my aggro pour. I got just better than a finger of fizzy, foamy, bone-white head that lasted about as long as a cool breeze on a summer day. Color was solid Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9) with NE-quality clarity. As I leaned in for a sniff, I realized that the blueberry was not as pronounced on the nose as when I initially opened the bottle. The apple could also be easily perceived. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, not watery, but not much beyond it, either. The taste was an odd, jangly amalgam of tart and sweet with the apple having a tartness that hit initially with the sweetness of the blueberry underlying it. Finish, on the other hand, was just the opposite with the tart of the apple becoming an afterthought, leaving me with a blueberry sweetness that was unabating. I have to hand it to them in that they managed to strike a good balance of flavors so that each one was perceptible. I am especially curious to see how Raspberry & Ginger taste alongside Apple. In the interim, I have a CAN of this one to drink next!

Appearance: Pours a very filtered golden color. No head and no lacing at all.

Smell: Blueberry, apple

Taste: Apple and blueberry. Nothing else comes through.

Feel: Carbonation is light. It is crisp and if it's cold then it is refreshing.

Overall: I used to love redds apple ale. This spin off doesn't make it any better. Don't expect any complexities and you can enjoy one once in a while.

This is not my style of ale at all. My wife likes it so I tried one. It was sweet and did taste like blueberry, but an apple cider with blueberry not an ale with blueberry. It was a hot day outside and the drink was cold so it worked okay for me. Not something I would personally buy but hey, it's better than a regular Miller for sure.

We love Redds Blueberry Ale. Anyone know where we can buy the 12 pack in the upper part of SC? We're located between Columbia SC and Rock Hill SC.

From bottle. Light golden color, aroma of apples, very fruity. Very crisp with tastes of apple and a hint of blueberry with some carbonation. Not impressed with this cider.
