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.

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.
