I agree.  They look a lot like blueberries, and they have similar 
sweetness, and both are mild-flavored fruits.  But other than that they 
taste different.

I find serviceberries softer and drier and a little less acid than 
blueberries.  They're nice, but I prefer blueberries.  I've only eaten wild 
service berries, never cultivated ones.
