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.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a medium golden-amber color with a one finger white head that has a decent level of retention. The head holds strong for quite some time, but eventually fades to give a moderate level of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is huge of a blueberry smell. Mixed with this is a very light bready aroma. The blueberry smell is a little artificial in nature as it is a little to potent and sweet, but none the less, it is quite pleasant and nice.

Taste – A light bready and sweet blueberry flavor greet the tongue. These flavors are present throughout, but change slightly in intensity throughout the taste profile. The bready taste start out heaviest upfront (although not too heavy) but fade more and more as the taste advances. The blueberry on the other had starts out lighter and gets stronger as the taste advances. In the end a sweet and very blueberry flavor is left to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the rather thin side in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. The thinner body and higher carbonation create a rather crisp brew which is great for the sweet blueberry favors of the beer.

Overall – A fairly tasty blueberry ale, although it may be a little cloying. Overall one of the better blueberry beers I have tasted. While not a beer I would drink on session it is rather refreshing and worth a try.

The smell of blueberries hit me as soon as I popped the cap. The beer had a decent blueberry taste, but overall it was a bit weak. The flavor disappears mid-sip and leaves a rather bland taste in the mouth. Overall its an average beer. Nice on the front end, but leaves a little lacking on the back end.

I was very excited to try this beer. I LOVE fruity beers! It pours a yellowish/orangeish/gold. A pinky finger worth of white head that looks like freshly fallen powdery snow sits at the top and only lasts for a few minutes. What's left is a snowy white ring around the top. It smells delicious. The most prominent smell is of fruity pebbles. The blueberry smells natural, not artificial. My first sip revealed more carbonation than I was expecting, but not overpowering. I'm getting a strong club soda/tonic taste, in fact I can taste that more than the blueberry. It smells more strongly of blueberry than it actually tastes. The mouthfeel is dry and crisp. This would be a good choice for someone who only wants a hint of fruit, but I wish there were more. Definitely a good session beer and relatively low in alcohol. I wouldn't buy this again but would certainly have one if offered to me.
