3-way blueberry beer taste test. 1-Sam Adams Blueberry Hill Lager. 2-Fegleys Blueberry Belch, 3-DuClaw Blueberry Citrus Wheat.

So this was the best of a dubious group.

It pours a light golden brown color with a huge foamy white head. It has a malty aroma with a definite scent of blueberry as well. The taste is bready with a strong blueberry, syrupy flavor as well and that’s about it. The body is too light to the point of being watery and there really isn’t any hop character at all either. It is also far too sweet and the blueberry flavor is somewhat overwhelming. The only other blueberry beer that I’ve had is Wild Blue, which is a truly terrible beer. This is certainly better than that, but it still leaves a lot to be desired. It’s too bad because you would think that a good blueberry beer would be possible, but I have still yet to find one.
