Tried the Stella Blue whilst visitng the Shoreline brewery. This Golden beer was quite nice. Clear in color, ok carbonation but not much head. The smell had a very nice blueberry aroma. The taste was very light and crisp. Great blueberry flavor that was not over powering...very nice. It was a very easy drinking beer. This beer is definitely worth a try in my opinion.

Being from main I've had my share of blueberry beers...I had this at the brewery as part of a taster.

This beer is a pale yellow with an initial head that all but dissipates.

The aroma is mainly blueberry. The pale malt shows through with a slight sweetness. The blueberry smell is overwhelming to much for me but not out of the norm.

The body of this beer is of a light pale ale, the initial taste is blueberry sweet, like candy, not like malt, a pale malt taste comes through but is subdued by the blueberry.

This is an average blueberry beer all around.

Had on tap at the brewery.

A- Pours a pale golden yellow color. Half finger white head that dies down pretty much right away. No lacing at all when I was drinking.

S- Light pale malts under a big blueberry overtone. A honey sweetness to this as well. The blueberry is not really artifical smelling but at the same time not real smelling.

T- Tons of blueberry in the front of this. This tastes changes throughout the beer almost making it a sweet ceral artifical taste (think Booberry). There is a light pale malt in the middle of the beer with a dose of light sweetness before being taken over once again by the blueberry.

M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation was good for the beer. Blueberry mess left everywhere from the palate and long into the aftertaste. One sided flavor through the entire beer. No real palate drying with this beer.

D- I really liked this beer. It was a perfect beer that I could drink during the summertime. If you don't like the taste of blueberries then this beer just really isn't for you. Lower ABV means you can put a pitcher back with little problem.

I had this at the brewery. It is a pale yellow with a bit of head.

The aroma is where the blueberries really come through. The blueberries were much more subtle in the flavor. More like drinking a crisp summer white beer.

Pleasant but nothing really special.

(On tap at Tomlinson Tap Room.)
Pours a nice golden-yellow-orange color with a bit of decent initial head and some very nice lacing throughout. Very nice crisp and clean scent, nice sweet wheat malts with a nice hit of blueberry in the nose. Great taste, a wonderfully sweet and malty wheat base with a great hit of blueberries throughout; tastes merge, and do not compete with each other. This was an exceptionally mellow and easy to drink beer that went down wonderfully.
