Reviewed from notes from 3/13/12. 12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance-light yellow/golden with white head

Smell-Juicy, fresh blueberries. Also, pick up on sugar

Taste-Right on par with the nose, I get a lot of fresh-blueberry taste through and through in this beer. The profile reminds me of fresh/organic blueberries. This is definitely sessionable and I will pick up throughout the summer and possibly spring too.

Mouthfeel-Well carbonated, light.

Overall-I have been searching for a blueberry beer and have found my match. Got really lucky with this one-since BluePoint is well represented here in upstate NY. Can't wait for warmer days so I can buy again.

This beer does some things adequately, but nothing really well. It's very fruity with this amazing blueberry aroma hitting you hard from the opening. My issue here is that there is little bitter to balance off of the sweet. It's as if they tried to bury the ale in blueberry and citrus. Mouthfeel was watery as well. As I type, I'm sitting here trying to finish it. Very one-note, not sweet enough to be a dessert beer, too sweet for regular beer drinking. Boring blueberry beer.

Got this one from a great east coast BA'er.

Poured a very beautiful medium amber gold that was nearly non-translucent but appeared to be totally filtered. Produced a stark white head that reduced to a mere inconsistent lace ring around the glass. Smalls are overwhelmingly blueberry! The tastes are not very carbonated as some have posted. Perhaps it's a less than fresh bottle at this point. Has the backend taste and mouthfeel of a Blue Moon. For only a 4.6% abv brew, it's more than a mouthfool. Seems heavier. Decent brew. Come summer time, I'll take a Leine's Berryweiss over this one anytime. Glad I tried it.

Cheers!

A-pours a transparent gold color with a white head with very good retention that leaves a nice lace.
S-low malt and hop aroma, mainly blueberry comes through
T-again low malt flavor, hop provide bitterness but do not provide any flavor, and blueberry is subtle. Finishes clean.
M-light bodied
O-very easy drinking beer. Not a ton of flavor, but what is to be expected of the style
