Gold pour with quickly disappearing white head. Blueberry pie aromas. Sweet blueberry taste lite mouthfeel. Cloyingly sweet.

Smell is outstanding. Popped one open, left the room, came back the whole room smelled like blueberry muffins. Taste is good. The blueberries are out front and delicious. It's not the greatest crafted brew I've had and the taste devolves/diminishes shortly thereafter, but its stays alright. Not a great fruit beer, but definitely a good one.

Gulp, Gulp Gulp...ahhhhhhhh. Daddy likes. The perfect beer for the perfect day by the pool. Just not a winter beer. For blueberry beers, it's only avg.....which is still very very very good.

let me just say, there is a time and a place for this one, and when it is the time, and you find yourself in the place, this really can be pretty awesome beer. now i know its not the next great west coast ipa or barrel fermented sour ale, not even close, but we have to step back and appreciate this one for what it is. the fruit is genuine, not over the top, and has some tartness with its natural sugars. the wheat base beer is light, well enough crafted, if a big generic, and in combination with high carbonation levels, a clean finish for the style, and a real low abv, this is pretty cool beer in a warm weather context. its excellent with seafood, especially of the fried variety, and is honestly a pretty underrated beer. ive heard it goes off pretty quick with age, and that the bottles are better than the cans, but my first and only impression of this is resoundingly more positive than the other reviewers here on BA. honesty better than not bad, which i dont think its scores reflect very well. refreshing and worthy of taking up a few spaces in my refrigerator, not ashamed to say so.

Misc.: Best enjoyed by Feb. 2015

Poured a copper, pale, clear color with one finger of off-white head, that dissipated quickly. Few streams of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Minimal lacing. Minimal retention. (Sight - 2.88)

Smelled blueberry, raspberry, blueberry muffins, artificial sugary notes, boysenberry and blackberry. (Smell - 3.75)

Tasted pretty close to the nose. Blueberry, blueberry muffin, blueberry pancakes, light sugary caramel, bready malts and Blue Raspberry Blow Pop. (Taste - 3.63)

Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Soft carbonation. Abrupt, fruity finish. (Feel - 3.00)

A pretty decent fruit beer overall, although I’m a sucker for them. Would be nice in the summer. (Overall - 3.63)

Sampled this evening on 12/29/14. Had this once before about 2 years ago but had to retry it and do a good review on it. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a flute glass.

Pours a golden-amber in color with a white foamy cap that doesn't last a real long time. Some sheets of spotty lacing is seen when sipped that slides back down the glass. The aroma is very pleasant and is like a fresh blueberry tart. The taste is pretty much the same with the blueberries and wheat right up front. Not as sweet as you might think though. Very smooth with no bitter or harsh aftertaste at all. A very refreshing brew with a great flavor for most anytime of the year, though the warmer months might be a tad better. I liked this one.
