Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served a blue tinted- golden amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer big of a sweet blueberry smell mixed with a little bit of a wheat aroma. Overall, simple, but rather authentic in nature.

Taste – The taste begins with a blend of light malt and moderate blueberry flavor. It is moderately sweet upfront, but not in an obnoxious way, with it gaining a little bit more sweetness as the flavor moves on to the end. Some wheat and honey work their way into the tongue as well, and when mixed with the rest of the flavors ends up leaving a crisp, moderately sweet, but authentic blueberry wheat flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite thin with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly higher side. The thinner body is fantastic for the refreshing character and blueberry flavors of the brew all while the slightly higher carbonation only accentuates this even more.

Overall - One of the beer blueberry beers out there. Not overly sweet, with a nice blueberry taste and a rather refreshing feel. A good summer brew.

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Enjoy By: JUL092014.

Appearance: Pours a clear, light amber-toned body with a small, near white head.

Smell: Mild, oddly joined notes smelling of blueberry, toasted grain with a thin edge of caramel.

Taste: Vaguely bready, mealy maltiness, not really characteristic of wheat. Light, 'off' honeyish sweetness. Low blueberry flavor. Faint hops, very light bitterness. Drying, lightly fruitiness. This one just doesn't come together AT ALL.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Kinda Bleh.

Poured into a shaker glass.

Look: Dark copper body. Light cream colored head that recedes to a white ring around the glass. Minimal lacing.

Aroma: Sweet malts, and a very subtle blueberry note that almost goes unnoticed.

Taste: A sweet malty backbone thats just barely coated in a blueberry fruitiness. Some faint tart in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Somewhat creamy, pretty solid in weight.

Overall: Most fruity wheat beers are cloying or too over the top. This one takes the opposite approach. If anything, I think it needs a little more blueberry kick.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy straw with a slight blue tint to it, and a white head, opaque.

S: Wheat and blueberry are noticeable, but the nose is a bit faint.

T: Taste also includes wheat and blueberry, but it's a nice strong flavor.

M: Medium bodied and smooth. Refreshing.

O: Recommended for those who like the fruit infused hefeweizen variety of beer. I liked it a lot, though I don't feel like this beer could do justice to the album to which it's name references.
