I will probably rate this higher than some others, even though I don't really like FV beers unless they are aged/soured.
Appearance: dark golden copper (ish).
Aroma: Berry, and malt
Taste: Blueberry, and malt again.
Feel: Crisp, not cloying sweet
They nailed the style, which is hard to find.

This wasn't a great beer but for what it was trying to accomplish it pulled it off. This worked much better than some others I've tried and the blueberry was obvious without being sweet or artificial tasting. There was a background of some grain and malt which was in decent proportion with the blueberry. Actually had this with a homemade blueberry dessert and for that it seemed to work fairly well. To just have on its on May not be as enjoyable

this is a little better than its ratings here if you like the fruit flavored stuff. it reminds me of this cereal that was around when i was a kid called blueberry morning, it has those tiny little "wild" blueberries in it, dehydrated or freeze dried or something, and it has such a strong aroma and flavor of blueberry, more blueberry even than a real blueberry if that makes sense, and this beer really casts the same fruit impression, even the grain is similar to the flakes in the cereal. is that stuff still being made?! it never gets too too sweet either, and even though there is some residual sugar to this, its not way out of natural balance with how forward the berries are. the blonde base is light but not flavorless, and this still tastes like beer to me. i like it far better when its ice cold, it doent warm up super well, but with a minimal body and a lot of bubbles, it has refreshment capacity when its freeing. decent overall beer from these guys, a little cheap and a little over the top tasting to me, but not bad, especially compared to similar beers. the art is pretty and its stronger than a lot of these. not trying to be anything but what it is either which is cool. appealing in small doses and the right context.

Copper color with a small white head. Blueberry smell hit me when I opened the can. Solid beer with good body and not overwhelming or fake tasting with the blueberry. Very well done.

Loose, pure white head, the pour yields over a finger but the retention is poor and there’s not much lacing as well. Light haze to the yellow-orange liquid, good amount of fat, lazy bubbles visible. The blueberry presence is dominant in the nose, followed on by molasses and orange blossom notes, tea leaf and perhaps some scone accents, dissolves nicely without excess pungency. In the mouth it’s medium-bodied with light carbonation and a great deal more sweetness to the blueberry fruit, close to preserves. More of that honey to molasses aspect and even the orange citrus feels more concentrated and juice like. As it finishes gets close to milk chocolate with a mild doughiness and could pass for a slice of pie. Nothing added to the mix for contrast or balance, can’t mistake it for anything but an homage to the flavor of blueberries. So, err, make sure you like blueberries before making a purchase.
