Golden orange in color. Fairly hazy in appearance. Blueberry and wheat. It just tastes kind of artificial. It's light, crisp and easy to drink though.

Disappointing for a Sam Adams beer. For a great Blueberry beer, try Bar Harbor Blueberry ale, this is a beer that even my friends who do not drink any fruit beers like. The Sam Adams blueberry just had an off putting taste, with no real body.

Your enjoyment of this beer will depend on your enjoyment of blueberry lagers in general. Sam Adams, as always, manages to balance the fruity sweetness with bitterness. Not their best beer, but not bad.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of Nov 2015. Sampled on June 28, 2015.

The pour is a near headless yellow color.

Aroma of blueberry and roasted pale malts. Grainy too.

The body is light and refreshing.

The taste is toasted pale malts and a wheelbarrow of blueberry. Not overpower but decently balanced as far as the style goes. I love blueberries. I use eat them and cook with them. I just can't fathom the excitement of a blueberry lager though. But breweries keep making them. As far as that goes, it is what you expect.

Good beer. It smells very fruity(delicious), and it taste almost the same as the smell, but not quite.

Bottle from a lazy dog.
Deep golden color with a good sized long lasting bubbly white head. Big blueberry on the aroma, almost too much. The flavor is quite sweet, again big blueberry. Somewhat cloying, more like a wine cooler than a beer. Glad I only bought one.

Very syrupy. One of Sam Adams worst brew, in my opinion.
