Had this at the Reno Beer Invitational last week. They brought three cans, tried this one first. Pours a blue and purple kind of color. Small off white pink streaked head in the 1/4" range. Aroma does impart some berriness, you really gotta pack a lot of blueberry into a beer to get it to impact it enough in this way. Nice job.

Taste is full on blueberry juiciness. The sourness is appropriate, the base wheat body seems decent enough to follow tradition and merely give you a lively carbonated light bodied beer as a delivery mechanism for blueberries in this beer. Can't say there was anything I thought it did bad, everything was appropriate. They did a light traditional berliner base, b but dropped a heavy concentration of fruit, especially on this one. One a 1-10 sour scale, they went appropriate and kept this one around a 3.5 - 4. I dig it, if it was affordable and available around during hot weather I'd be sure to pack a 4 pack on down to the river.

A: The beer is very dark purple in color and is nearly opaque (and appears black when viewed from afar). It poured with a half finger high dark pink colored head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a thick coating of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of grape juice are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has lots of flavors that resemble Welch's grape juice, although some notes of blueberries creep in along with bits of sourness.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied and tart on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and is very fruity but hardly has any sourness.

Serving type: can

Strong tart aroma, with a hint of blueberry. Pours an opaque red with a full pink head. Strong acid notes to begin with, very crisp and refreshing. The blueberries come through a bit in the finish, but don't add much in the way of flavor. A nice clean, dry berliner.

Pint can, pours with a decent head that settles down, color is a dark cranberry. Smell is a sour blue-cranberry. Taste is of soda water and blueberry with a trace of sour. Feel is great, a mixture of carbonated water and fizzy sour blueberries. Overall, this is a great light Blueberry brew.

Overall enjoyable

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours with a massive mauve head, with the blueberry juice colored liquid building underneath; the head sticks on top like a scoop of sherbet, splattering lacing against the glass

Smell: Blueberry jam and wheat tang

Taste: Blueberry and grape jam forward with a wheat tang building; increasingly tart, through the middle, with a dry finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation; feels a little weighty for the style

Overall: A pleasant diversion but the blueberry flavors don't seem quite what they should be

A: Poured into a tulip to a deep purple with a finger and a half of dense pink head which fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass with decent lacing
S: Smells of tartness, creamy wheat and juicy blueberries
T: Taste is nice tartness up front with a shot of lemon zest. Creamy wheat body in the middle along with some nice blueberry notes. Blueberries come in hard on the swallow along with some more creamy wheat and lemony tartness
M: This beer is light in body but is not watery. Carbonation is effervescent and adequate for the style while the beer has a slightly drying finish.
O: Overall this is another really nice fruited berliner from Mikkeller. Not totally outstanding but not a dud either. Very enjoyable for the price and easy to find.

Light and airy and oh so scary! But nah, Raul got this. Pours a hella dark bluish/purple - think Grover blood. Aroma is of delicate blueberry juice n stuff. Taste is much the same. And that’s where it’s a bit of a let down. I’m lookin’ for a lil pop, just a lil spanky... i don’t need Stormy Daniels on Mr President with a Forbes mag, kind of spank, but just something light enough to let you know that she’s there.

this is good beer, but i think i am duped a little by the fruit, like i think without it, we might not have the best base berliner, and if they spent as much time on the berliner as they obviously did stuffing fruit into it, it might be a whole lot better. im not convinced i ever really liked the base beer all that much, but the intensity of the fruits in each of them have made them quite unique, and i think it makes up for the lackluster, or what i perceive to be lackluster, base berliner. this pours the color of an exploded purple sharpie with a rising pink head over an inch high, closer to two, and extremely dense and saturated looking, nothing delicate about this. the aroma is light vinegar, red wine, cheesy lacto, and acetic tang, and the flavor is the same. blueberry jam or preserves sure, some confectioners type sweetness to it, and a lot of acidity with the sugar here. the sourness isnt as clean as it should be, and i taste no wheat. on top of that, its a little metallic, tasting a bit like the can. all that said, the fruit is awesome, natural or not, and the pucker cuts it in a cool way. i was maybe a little glad to be sharing the can, but mikkeller continues to hold my attention, even if its more from befuddlement in this case than awe. not a great beer, but hard not to enjoy it, if that makes sense in this context...
