Light tart flavors, somewhat metallic, light drinkable body, creamy head.

Enjoy by 10/21/14.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, grain, and blueberry aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and blueberry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but fairly forgettable for a fruit beer in my opinion.

Serving type: bottle.

Sampled last night on 8/14/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a flute glass.

Pours a a pretty amber in color with a purple hue that has a small white fizzy head that ends up with just being a thin layering on top. Some very light spotty lacing is seen but not much. Lots of fresh blueberry and wheat aroma when opened. Very nice and smells like a blueberry pie even. The taste is close but not as sweet as you might think. Just a slight tart aftertaste. It is NOT from the hops but from the berries. Overall, really like this summer brew!

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.
