With fresh macerated blueberries and a lemon, you'll have to drag my body out of this bar at the end of the nite. Simply amazing. Fruity but not overpowering or overwhelming, it goes down so smooth with the fresh blueberry juices really adding such a bright and vibrant color and taste. I'm in love/limits. Darn these local beers that I can't get back home!

Pours clear yellow gold color with very active carbonation racing up the brew to a creamy white colored head that faded average time and left excellent lacing coating the sides and a layer on top. They added blueberries and the blueberries dropped up and down like frogs dipping to the bottom and then popping slowly back up. A great looking fruit beer.

Smells of blueberry, corn, light citrus hops, biscuit, mixed berries, light caramel and grains. Perhaps the real blueberries floating in it give it the great aroma, but this smells like a handful of real blueberries - very nice either way.

Tastes like it smells with fresh blueberries, light citrus hops, biscuit, mixed berries like raspberry or strawberry, light caramel, bread crust and grains. Smells better than it tastes, but it's still better than most fruit beers.

Mouthfeel is thin and watery, with a very light body, very minimal carbonation which fades off like a lager with a nice fruity finish. Overall it was very tasty, easy to drink and enjoyable.

An acceptable, reasonably good fruit ale but nothing to write home about. Mild smell with a hint of blueberry. The beer lacks a bit of taste, straddling the line a bit between wheat beer and tasteless light beer, perhaps leaning a little bit towards the latter. Leaves an enjoyable but not overpowering blueberry aftertaste. A perfectly acceptable selection when a mellow summer beer is desired.

I have taken notice that most beeradvocates don't take kindly to sweet beers. You can taste the blueberry after every sip.
