This refreshing example from the oft maligned "fruit and vegetable" category turned out to be just the ticket for a warm late-summer evening out on the porch. Kinda Blue pours a perfect golden color shining from within like a cursed ancient Egyptian death mask. Hyperbole? Perhaps ... and considering that this brew is built around an American wheat, I normally would like to see less clarity--since I like my wheat beers unfiltered--but damn, it is pretty.

The best part of this brew is the bouquet it throws. Blueberries are present, but not overwhelming or cloying. The hop profile makes itself known up front--yet upon tasting, it strikes a perfect balance with the grain bill.

All-in-all, Kinda Blue is a nice mellow American wheat with natural blueberry goodness. Points off for being filtered, though.

3.04/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Tawny in color. Great clarity. The head seems to contain just the slightest purple hue. It settles into a thin cap rather quickly, but leaves a thin coating of lacing behind.

S: Bready wheat notes, maybe a little chalky, faint whiffs of tart blueberry. Clean. Actually very little on the nose, you really have to strain to pick everything out.

T: Juicy blueberries up front. Very slight blueberry tartness after a few seconds. Yeast is very clean and neutral. Flashes of wheat. Finish is basically nonexistent.

M: Light bodied. Thin, creamy, wheaty. Some fruit skin astringency builds to a mild annoyance after a while. Lightly seltzery carbonation.

O: The brewers may have been going for subtlety here, but they stayed too safe. There's nothing offensive about it, but there just isn't a whole lot going on.

12 oz bottle dated Enjoy by 7.9.14

A - Deep golden with no head and no sticky lace and slight clarity

S - Light fruit/blueberry and wheat.

T - Light blueberries and fruit and wheat, like the nose. It doesn't really come together however. Nothing great going on here.

M - Light bodied, low carbonation.

O - This one would be enjoyable outside on a hot summer afternoon really cold. But other than that I will pass.
