Golden color, faint cloudiness under light. Light mouthfeel. Prominent artificial blueberry aroma. Smells a bit like a blueberry instant oatmeal packet. Low bitterness, fairly sweet. A bit tart. Unoffensive, easy to drink.

I don’t like fruit beers and frankly, it was an accident i tried it. Tbh, i hated this and has justified my personal fruit vendetta. If you, like me, hate fruit beer but, unlike me, were thinking of drinking this on purpose hoping this might be some sort of exception, you are sorely mistaken.
Good quality if you like that sort of thing, tho

i dont dislike this at all, maybe a bit sweeter than it needs to be, preventing me from making a day of it, but despite this sort of tasting cheap and artificial, its still pretty palatable. to me its a bit of a red flag when you make a beer with blueberries and its golden in color. visually there is no trace of fruit here at all. golden and clear, minimal head. it smells sweet and jammy like baked blueberry pie rather than fresh fruit, perhaps a little syrupy or extracty, but its appealing nevertheless, more fall than summer to me for some reason. simple light yellow beer underneath, not much happening there at all. the blueberries are about the same in the flavor, sweet and not totally natural, but really robust and sort of cooked tasting, like they should go over vanilla ice cream. there is some residual sugar here, almost corny in the grain, but its smooth to drink on, i dont miss higher carbonation, and when its really cold, its pretty good. not at all my favorite beer from these guys, but also nowhere near the worst blueberry beer out there in this style right now, not even close!

Plear pale golden color with a light head that dissipates quickly; A very definite aroma of blueberries; Sparkly carbonated feel; Very mild taste with just a hint of blueberry. I received an assortment of Blue Point beers as a gift. Blueberry beer is not something I would choose but it isn't unpleasant - I'll drink all six.

BA has this listed as Blue Point Blueberry. The label on the bottle says Blueberry Ale

Was hesitant going into this one, but it actually wasn't half bad. Didn't taste overly artificial, tasted pretty natural. The blueberries definitely come through in the smell, but showed skilled restraint in the way it comes through in the flavor. It is definitely there, but leads more of a supporting role to the ales flavor profile. It still tastes like a beer with some blueberries bursting through. Not half bad in flavor or execution; however, I still wonder if blueberry is something I want in my beer.

Wouldn't kick it to the curb, but not so sure I would go search out a six pack of it.
