12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 11/8/2011. Pours slightly cloudy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with nice retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of blueberry, blueberry skin, light bread, floral, and light herbal. Nice and pleasant aromas with good strength of authentic blueberry notes as expected. Taste of blueberry, blueberry skin, cracker, bready grain, floral, and herbal. Lingering notes of blueberry, blueberry skin, bread, cracker, floral, and herbal on the finish for a short bit. Good flavor balance with a nice amount of blueberry flavor; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish as expected of 4.6%. Overall this is a nice blueberry fruit ale. Nice amount of blueberry flavor with good balance; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable fruit beer offering.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. White head, low retention, clear lacing on a clear, straw body. Aroma is a musty blueberry, in a candy-like kinda way. Taste has some malt sweetness and again, sweet blueberry, the kind of tase you would get from a blueberry flavored cereal. Not terrible and I'm sure quite drinkable for most drinkers.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint glass.

Never heard of Blue Point Brewing Company. This was picked up as a single from a local grocery store. This seemed like a nice escape from dark winter beers and I love blueberry so I figured I'd give it a spin.

Appearance: Golden, has a nice white head that sticks around for a bit and then leaves a really light lacing.

Smell: This smells like blueberries. Luckily, it smells like actual blueberries and not like blueberry flavor. Not much else here, but no complaints.

Taste: Tastes like an old blueberry and oats cereal I love. A sweet beer, but luckily not too sweet. This is a surprisingly good fruit wheat. I'd probably love this beer in the middle of spring.

Mouthfeel: This is a really light beer, and that's not a bad thing. Kind of sticky too, maybe even like blueberries.

You know, I wasn't really expecting to love this beer, let alone like it. However, this is pretty good. I'd buy this again.
