A great blueberry beer especially for the summer and early fall months. Flavor isn't heavy on the blueberry, which is perfectly fine. The taste combined with the aroma is an excellent balance and blend with the stronger-than-usual blueberry scent calling to mind blueberry pancakes or blueberry waffles, and the lighter than blueberry taste making one appreciate the distinct isoamly acetate and guaiacol profiles.

Had at mellow mushroom in Gatlinburg TN. Was really craving one after a few days of hard hiking. First thing you notice is the strong blueberry aroma. The taste is pretty good, I could have gone for more intense blueberry flavor but it was still refreshing. I would have again.

Clear deep gold color with small white cap.

Aroma of clean blueberries resting on a mild grain base.

Taste is primarily blueberry but it's a natural sort of flavor that doesn't come across as strong or artificial. There is a bit of sweetness on entry that quickly blends into a mild fruit flavor that from mid palate on tastes dry and finishes dry as well. No real hop presence that I can detect but with these mild fruit beers a hop presence doesn't really add much.

Mild to medium texture with balancing carbonation.

Overall it's a pleasant fruity beer of the milder sort with a definite but clean blueberry taste that comes across as dry.

Great aroma and appearance. Mouthfeel is solid with a great blueberry flavor at first, then subtle hops to finish out the taste. will buy it again.

Bought during the holidays in far-away Kenosha Wisconsin Woodman's, the picture does not fit for this summer ale designed for a tourist restaurant chain with 7 in Maine and 2 in Florida. Plus, I have the problem of not being sure my beer is the one with 999 ratings. (My label says only "Wild Blueberry.")

And by its lager Looks (clear), there is no wheat particulates and foam. (This is a flat remainder from Woodman's build-your-own-six-pack section.) I'm not for detailing a brew not worth having again, but I concur with reviewers who say the Smells of blueberry are marginally delivered in the Taste and the carbonation gives a refreshing finish... but not wheat-like... One and done.

12 Oz Bottle poured into a glass
Look - fairly clear golden appearance with not much head and no lacing on the glass. hmmm
Smell - Gee whiz. I knew it would be rich with blueberry but this is a very strong unnatural blueberry aroma and it smells exactly like a Welch's blueberry fruit gummy. It's not terrible but i was under the impression this was a fresh Maine blueberry beer
Taste - Okay much better than the smell. Blueberry dominates the taste but you get the bready wheat and the sugar which makes it taste similar to a blueberry muffin or scone. It's solid, medium body and medium-high carbonation. I can't detect much bitterness, there is some malt on the back.

Overall, the beer doesn't try to do too much, it's basically just blueberry flavored beer which is certainly refreshing in the summer to take a break from the normal beers. Not my preferred flavor and not the best fruit beer but it is tasty
I will give this beer a B-
