Had this on the Staten Island ferry, assuming it would be a toasted lager. Lo and behold, this is what they handed me when I asked for a blue point. A decent fruit beer that is not overly sweet. Great blueberry essence dominates, but still a good malt backbone to keep it balanced. Tastes like a blueberry pie. Not really my thing, but a decent fruit beer nonetheless.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

This beer pours a golden hue and is clear. It is topped with an inch of off white head that leaves a little lacing.

I smell some blueberry along with the base ale smell.

It tastes like your average ale flavored with blueberries. Nothing to see here.

Thin mouthfeel

This is an average blueberry ale. The blueberry is not overpowering but complimentary to the the ale.

Smells strongly of blueberries from the second you open the bottle. When you take a sip the berry flavor is mild. Nothing is really overpowering. It tastes light and crisp with a blueberry aftertaste and it goes well with food.

Poured into a pint glass. Clear amber with thin white head. Prominent blueberry tart on the nose. The taste was nicely subtle, with bread balancing the fruit.Clean finish.

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.

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

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of blueberries, grassy hops and bready malt. Body is medium and crisp. Grassy hops, bready malt and blueberries fill the mouth. Finish is long and dry. Drinkable brew.
