12oz bottle - I presume that this brew is made by Shipyard, since it arrived in our liquor jurisdiction at the very same time as the Shipyard products?

This beer pours a clear, bright medium golden amber hue, with two chubby fingers of tightly foamy, and somewhat creamy off-white head, which leaves pretty much nil in terms of persistent lace as it quickly blows off.

It smells of sugary blueberry, a bit of strawberry candy, a hint of sharper cherry juice, an equally saccharine bready caramel malt, and faint earthy, weedy hops. The taste is thankfully much less sweet overall, though the flavours remain the same - blueberries, underripe strawberries, a doughy caramel malt, suggestions of neutered grainy wheat, a bit of earthy yeast, and still quite tame weedy, leafy hops.

The carbonation is fairly understated, barely seeming to fulfill its base support duties, the body medium-light in weight, and generally smooth, in a plain juicy sort of way. It finishes off-dry, and not as sweet as I was initially led to believe - the fruit is more or less balanced, and some edgy old-school hops round things out.

An enjoyable enough fruit beer, the blueberry guest allowed to run rampant in many of its forms - confectionery to start, all the way to a decent intersection of fruitiness/acid by the finish. Easy to drink, I could see having a few of these in the sun of a seaside summer patio.

a travesty of blueberry-flavored beer and an uncalled for fiasco in my mouth, this blueberry wheat ale is lacking in taste when compared to many others--and the taste that is present is... kind of bad.
