I am not normally a fan of fruit beers. I've never had good ones until I had a pint of this and -- at the same dinner in Manhattan -- a pint of Magic Hat No. 9.

Our waiter said this beer was special because it smelled like blueberries but didn't taste like them. He was right. There is a nice blueberry note in the smell but the fruit flavors are very, very muted when you taste this beer.

This is a standout fruit beer. If you normally don't like 'em, give this beer a try.

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

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.

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

A: This poured a clear pale golden-yellow color with a medium head that hung around for just awhile before it left a thin sud layer at the top and a sparse lacing.

S: There is an obvious natural but conservative blueberry scent that prevails over anything else (particularly the lightest hop content) soon detected in the taste.

T/M: What impresses me most with this brew is that it gives the natural taste of blueberry without the sweet syrup-like flavoring that might attempt to forge a real fruit character. There is nothing amazing or complex to this brew's taste beyond the very impressive accomplishment of a good natural blueberry transition.

D: Light and smooth...

The blueberry flavor is light, but at least it feels somewhat natural. There was a definite worry here that the blueberry would feel artificial. It's very drinkable, but kind of boring and underflavored.

A-golden with a thick white head

S-smells like syrupy blue berries. It's an adjunct scent, medium strength

T-comes in with a clean taste of adjunct grains and blue berries. Not a terrible taste. It's not very flavorful, but it's also quite crisp and smooth.

M-low carbonation with a watery finish

O-it's actually not a terrible beer. It's pretty straight forward with out gross off flavors or qualities. Simple. The girls will like it.

Pours yellowy golden in color with thin, white head which dissipates quickly to a slight haze on the surface. Lots of streaming carbonation and a haze of small particles suspended in the beer.

Smells of bready malt mostly, a bit of light blueberry aroma but it is a bit underwhelming. Tastes bready and malty up front as well, which moves a decent but not intense bitterness. Finishes with a good blueberry flavor and leaves a nice fruity aftertaste.

Light body, crisp feel, but a bit on the watery side. This beer is easy drinking and the low ABV is kind of nice too.

This beer pours out as a clear yellowish golden color with a white fizzy head on it. There isn't much lacing here at all. The smell of this beer goes from blueberry to a bready yeast aroma. The taste has some light blueberry flavors in there. The taste also has a malt character that's not too bad. The mouthfeel is smooth and pretty light. OVerall it's a decent fruit beer but not the best.

A: Nice pour clear and golden with tan cap of foam about 1/2 inch which dissapated half way thru.

S: Blue berry and malts.

T: Much of the same with a good blueberry flavor but not overpowering and a good malty base.

M: Crisp and medium bodied with a light coating.

D: Good drinkable and could drink a few but probably not if I had a choice of something else.
