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.

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.

Appears a ruby amber tone with a large bubbled thick pink tinted cream head leaves sporadic strands of lacing all around my pint.

Aroma light tart blueberry tones with a touch of metallic character and light toasted malt sweetness with minimal earthy, herbal hops going on it doesn't seem overly sweet just a natural air of fruitiness going on.

Flavor, a biscuit maltiness with light herbal hop bitterness and a coat of blueberry tartness really affecting the sides of the palate finishes pretty clean with some lasting blueberry aftermath but nothing too cloying or sugary here pretty well made.

Mouthfeel light creamy carbonation body is a bit airy almost like a nitro draft sensation going on, the only negative is the trace of the blueberry flavor that really coats the palate after each sip.

Drinkability flows pretty well definitely a step above most other attempts at fruit beers but I don't think this blueberry has as many antioxidants as the fruit does, but a solid summer sipper definitely refreshing and not too one dimensional.

12 oz bottle served in a snifter.

Pours lightly hazy, amber colored, with a thin white head.
Aroma: blueberry pancakes with blueberry syrup and biscuits on the side.

Flavor: While the aroma suggests a sweet brew with a heavy handed contribution of blueberry flavoring, such is not the case: very balanced in terms of fruit/malt and sweet/tart.

Feel: medium-light body; rather crisp carbonation with a semi-dry finish.

O: well done and better than expected.
