A: crystal clear straw to gold color. Nice r finger white head with medium bubbles. Very pillowy head. Nice carbonation.

S: piney, earthy, slight sweetness, spicy, herbal, slight bread. Not much if any blueberry.

T: hint of blueberry with a bready fullness. A little tart. Crisp and refreshing but lacking a ton of flavor. Definitely extract blueberry flavor.

M: Finish is sweet and very smooth.

O: I wouldn't call this a blueberry beer. I wouldn't know it except I poured the bottle. More pine in the nose. Blueberry in the taste but only a hint.

Pours pale yellow with a fizzy white head. No lace, but I'm impressed that this retains a ring of slight foam for so long. The troubling part is why the beer was in the pint for so long.

This is blueberry beer, but it is very hard to get a malt profile on this one. Big berry aroma, like the dried ones you get in cereal. If you get some light malt, it is just a whiff.

Blueberry up front, which works. The rest of this beer is a mess. Some malt, soda water, a peppery hint, lightly sour grain, and light bitter and blueberry to finish.

Very light bodied. A little fizzy.

Part of a 12 pack mix. Not worth having again.

A- Golden, light penetrates easily. Less then a finger of head, practically no lacing.

S- Very strong smell of blueberries. Smells exactly like a blueberry muffin.

T- Blueberry Taste very apparent and overpowering.

M- Lots of carbonation, tastes kind of like a blueberry flavored soda. Not too hard to drink.

O- If you are a fan of blueberries and like sweet, fruity beers then I would recommend this beer to you. I wasnt that big of a fan, but it wasn't terrible. Probably won't purchase this beer again.
