This is a fun "freaky" ale to enjoy on occasion. There's nothing special about the look. Very little head, some lacing. Dark brown in color. The nose is pleasant, though the blueberry smells a bit artificial. Can't be helped, I suppose. It *is* supposed to taste like the pie, I guess.

Flavor is similar to the nose. Pleasant - actually kind of nice at first. As I drink, I become less enamored of the taste. I would prefer a bit more carbonation. The feel is a bit watery. I was surprised by the high ABV. In a good way. Most "fruit/vegetable" beers tend to have low ABV.

The flavor actually is a bit cloying - not awful, though. It forces me to sip slowly. Not something I can quaff down - not so much because of the ABV but because of the flavor.

I am enjoying the novelty of this one. It isn't bad. It's just not for me.

On tap in Atlanta.
Generous blueberry, dark malt and vanilla. Lightly sweet. Very smooth, medium-full body.

Overall: somewhat like is namesake, but less fruity and less sweet.

Poured from the tap into a tulip glass at Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a brown color with blue highlights with a small white head. The aroma is full of artificial blueberry. The taste is mild tart blueberries with some wheat in the background.

A twelve ounce bottle that appears dated JUN 30 16 poured in a twelve ounce snifter.

Look- Pours a rather flat and boring looking root beer brown with a trace of carbonation and foam.

Smell- Like a local supermarket budget blueberry pie. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it's not grandma's county fair award winning recipe.

Taste- Semi sweet blueberry and maybe a hint of pie crust. The finish is rather medicinal tasting like cough syrup.

Feel- A little on the oily/syrupy side, but rather flat and uninteresting.

Overall- It is drinkable, but rather poor in quality and wreaking of heavy adjuncts. Buy one if you're curious and thank me for the money you saved from buying six.

With a dark amber color, the taste of rich, flavorful, juicy blueberries emerge on the palate, along with the sweet, roasted malt character that backs up the nice clove, warm spices, some prunes and a little lemon that structures the flavor. There is fantastic, rich mouthfeel overall as we get that Nutrigrain bar aroma along the way. You are tasting this beer as though you are having liquid blueberry spice cake and fruit compote with root beer, and it’s delicious! This is in a different class of blueberry beer compared to the Sea Dog Blueberry Ale.
