A very solid and easy drinking fruit ale. A little too sweet after a couple...best as a "in the nightly rotation" beer. I am a fan of fruit beers and like that the smell of blueberries is evident right before every drink. It's just a little too sweet to kill a sixer in a sitting!

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.

I'm not too big on berry beers but I actually enjoyed this one quite a bit. Lots of bread notes with a njce berry hint. It's like a drinking a blueberry muffin I approve

Worth a try even if fruit beers aren't your thing because the blueberry flavor is subtle, and comes out more towards the end, making this a nice, crisp, warm weather session option.

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

The Blue Point Blueberry Ale pours from the 12oz bottle into my tulip glass a deep amber color with red and purple highlights. A small bubbly white head quickly falls to a ring around the top. Aroma hits you immediately (even right after pouring) with a distinct blueberry puree. A pale toasted grain maltiness lies underneath, slightly biscuity. The blueberry is integrated nicely.

First sip brings a crisp, toasted pale malt that's instantly met by a slightly sweet blueberry fruitiness. Reminds me of freshly made blueberry pancakes. Flows down with a toasted blueberry aftertaste. An enjoyable fruit beer that manages to never become too sweet.

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side with plenty of fast moving bubbles. I'm finding this really easy to drink and imagine it would be nice to have in hand outside on a hot summer day. A quencing brew with a low abv. If I had access to this, I'd definetly reach for it again. Thanks to plaid75 for sending this my way.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The bottle has the abv listed at 4.6% and it describes the beer as being "A delicious golden ale with natural flavors added". That's about it for info and well I don't like the look of "natural flavors added".

Appearance: A finger of creamy white foam forms on top of a clear golden brew with some visible carbonation flowing up to though the body. The head quickly settles to a thin film and makes some lace at the top of the glass.

Smell: In the nose I get the aroma of blueberries/blueberry like candy right after the pop of the glass. In the glass it opens up to include some light hints of sweet white bready malt.

Taste/Palate: The flavor is right on with the nose. Light blonde or golden ale, check, blueberry flavor, check. It's not complex at all and the fruit flavor is leaning more towards some real blueberry extract with a lot of artificial sweetener mixed in. Its light bodied, slides down easy, and finishes with the slightest hop bitterness and a little left over fruity blueberry sweetness.

Notes: It is drinkable but not really all that memorable.

on tap, poured a clear soft golden color, minimal head, and left some lacing. Lovely blueberry nose. Obvious and fairly bold notes of sweet blueberries. Soft mouthfeel. Crisp and dry with some hops coming onto the tongue late. Nicely balanced and crafted fruit ale. Not for everybody, but probably would be a winner with folks new to beer and/or interested in learning. Nice summer beer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Golden with a thick white head.

Smell: Heavy blueberry, alcohol and grassy notes.

Mouthfeel/ Taste: Smooth light bodied. Taste of bitter hops and grassy notes up front with a good blueberry aftertaste.

Overall: Good take on a blueberry beer. I would have it again.
