I tried it at JL Beers in Moorhead, after my girlfriend's love for blueberries caused her to order one.

Appearance
This "beer" looks almost opaque, but has a distinct dark red color when seen held up in the light. The head is almost pink, and more red than cream-colored.

Smell
Strong wild berry smell, with a bit of bubble gum, it seems.

Taste
It's blueberry, alright! Doesn't taste much like beer at all, it only has a few hints of malt towards the end.

Mouthfeel
Extremely bubbly. Surprisingly not very sticky, almost more like a super-fruity, heavier white wine than a sweet beer.

Overall
It's not really a beer. With that in mind, it's actually pretty alright. It's definitely an alternative for people who don't like "beery" flavors. For what it's worth, I was quite surprised that it's fairly enjoyable - As long as you realize that it has nothing to do with beer other than the name. Personally, I wouldn't buy it. But I can see how others might enjoy it.
