A-Clear orange, some carbonation and a one finger head that leaves some lacing.

S-Sweet, too sweet blueberries, not much else.

T-Overly sweet blueberries and there is little else. Some wheat but the overly sweet, borderline artificial blueberries dominate it.

M-Lighters, not much carbonation and slightly watery.

O-The poor blueberry flavor hurts the beer and makes it so it isn't very tasty.

The beer pours a beautiful gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a really fresh blueberry nose. The brewer used canned, fresh, and frozen blueberries. The taste is good as well. It's not your most complex beer, but it delivers as advertised. It's a fruit beer with good fruit character. The malt bill's simplistic and easy drinking while focusing on good fruit taste. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a low bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a great summertime brew. It's light and flavorful; an easy drinker.

I love me some horseheads brews! Kicking off summer 2011 with some blueberry ale.

A- a perfect amber look with a frothy of white head of foam. Decent lacing but really hearty looking

S- that is the most blueberry scent on the market! Good malty theme to back it up

T- literally tastes like a blueberry smoothie. Good fruit flavors mesh with the maltiness. Great brew focused on fruit and flavor

M- good carbonation meshes well with the syrupy flavor

D- delicious desert brew that is truly enjoyable in this warm weather. Horseheads continues to impress
