Light taste, no overpowering blueberry taste. Almost couldn't even notice it. Nice Summer beer - light and refreshing.

Notes 3/13. Bottle, 12 oz from tasting room, poured into pint glass. Pours a medium straw in color with just a touch of haze. A thin whitish cap doesn't linger for long but continues to drop some lace. Good but needs a bit more carbonation.

Aroma of light grain and a pleasant blueberry character and with a touch of lemony hop character with warming. Taste follows suit with a bit of graininess and some berry. Finish is drier than expected after a flash of berry. Decent balance as the fruit is present and accounted for but doesn't try to tackle you.

Feel is smooth and easy, not too sweet given the fruit, and showing a touch of wheat character. Overall an unobtrusive ale, simple yet refreshing when cold and still stands up to a bit of warming with a subtle and supporting fruitiness. An odd favorite from the three beers sampled.

Pours a hazy yellow with a white head that reduces to a thin layer.

Big blueberry aroma. The label says "blueberry flavor added," so I'm not sure if it's real blueberries or just artificial flavor.

The flavor, like the aroma, is big on blueberry. Though there is still a decent amount of malt flavor in there.

Nice body.

For blueberry beer fans.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass. Place yellow with almost no head, and what is there quickly disappears with no lacing and small streams of random bubbles.

Aroma is almost nothing but artificial blueberry. Smells like the blueberries used in muffins.

Flavor is bland ale with hint of blueberries in the back. Only real place they show up is in the burp.

Beer is thin and fizzy. Overall not that great. I don't typically like fruit beers, and now I still don't.
