Purplish haze with a small head. Taste malty, bready with a somewhat artificial blueberry flavor. I would say this tastes pretty close to a blueberry muffin. Easy drinking beer but definitely not world class as far as fruit beers go.

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.

Served on-tap at Cork City Pub in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a mostly clear medium amber in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some definite purple/red wine highlights. The beer has a finger tall sudsy biege head that reduces to a medium sized medium thick patch, a very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer, and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of sweet blueberry with some natural and some artificial hints. There are some lighter notes of sweet grainy malts underneath.

T: Upfront there was a moderate flavor of sweet blueberry that eventual shows some hints of tartness. Underneath the blueberry flavor there is a lighter amount of sweet grainy malts.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Not a bad blueberry beer - not the greatest that I have tried and certainly not the worst. The flavors and aromas are mostly of natural blueberry though it is a touch sweeter than I would have expected. Definitely a brew for a hot summer day.
