This beer pours an odd pinkish yellow with no hea or lace. The aroma is blueberry with hints of wheat and hops. The flavor is tart blueberry with a mild hop bitterness with a wheat malt finish. It's mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Fegley's Blueberry Belch is a decent beer, recommended.

Appearance, clear purple, no head.
Aroma, yep,it?s blueberry.
Taste, I have to say not bad. Can use a bit less blueberry, and a bit more beer. There are hints of cherry, lemon, lime. Feel, a touch flat.
Overall, a good summer drink but lacking in beer qualities.

Poured out as a murky brownish amber color, the head was minimal and left no lacing. The aroma of blueberry and wheat were strong on the nose. The taste is the beer has some good blueberry flavors upfront then it faded into a wheat aftertaste. The mouthfeel was on the lighter side with some subtle carbonation. Overall is was an average fruit beer. Decent for summer drinking.

A very interesting if not unspectacular brew, but unique, nevertheless. This deep brown/amber Bier presented with about a one-finger head on it. Not too shabby for this style, in my opinion. The aroma was, in my mind's eye, virtually nonexistent. The flavor was of bluberry, pure and simple. No additional sweetness, no real malt back bone to it. This is essentially like drinking a gladd of blueberries. Which is not necessarily a bad thing.

Prosit!

A somewhat cloudy golden amber colored brew topped with a small comvering of white foam. The nose is made up of a mild berry aroma as well as pale malts.

There is only a very faint fruity aroma of blueberries. It really does not make up the flavor, but it does provide sweetness. There is a big array of pale grains and bready flavor. It is light, crisp, and a bit refreshing. It is definitely a good summer brew, but it needs a bit more flavor and body.
