Sampled at the Ogunquit Lobster pound in preparation for my first slice of Maine (supposedly) wild blueberry pie. Poured very clear boden with light bodied head that died rather quickly. Regardless, the ring left nice lacing.

Amazing smelling brew of fresh baked blueberry. The malts and the blueberries would be the exact smell one would enjoy while baking blueberry muffins.

Comes off as dessert ina bottle. The fresh blueberry flavor (not some canned crap) is the main flavor. Light creaminess and biscuity tones on the finish. Just enough carbonation is here to keep it from becoming syrupy and unenjoyable. Still medium bodied with a lingering sweetness.

Overall this is a solid fruit brew that is worth a few.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a golden amber color with a two finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades quite fast leaving only a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – As may be expected, the beer’s aroma is big of a nice blueberry smell. The blueberry, while strong is not artificial, but actually smells rather authentic of blueberries. This blueberry aroma is mixed with some aromas of a light wheaty nature as well as a bit of a floral smell, with the overall aroma being very sweet and fruity.

Taste – The taste begins much drier then the nose would have suggested. It begins with a semi-sweet blueberry flavor mixed with a decent sum of a wheaty flavor. These two flavors create a base for the brew, both remaining relatively constant throughout the flavor profile. As the flavor advances some light earthy and floral notes come to the tongue along with some more grainy like tastes. At the end of the taste, a grassy flavor comes to the tongue, leaving a rather interesting blueberry in a field (wheat/grass/hay like) flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin and light with a carbonation level that is rather high. Both are quite nice for the style and make for a more crisp and refreshing brew, which match well the wheat and fruit flavors of the brew.

Overall – A rather easy drinking fruit beer. It is nothing outstanding, but in terms of making for a not overly sweet, but moderately blueberry fruited flavored brew, this one has it right. Not too bad.

Straw colored pour,minimal white head,minimal lacing.

Blueberries are the most prominent aroma here with typical wheat beer properties.

While on the sweet side, there is a time and a place to enjoy this blueberry bomb of a wheat beer. SDBWA is a nice Summer beverage when you want something light and refreshing.

Mouthfeel relatively thin, lots of carbonation.

Guilty of enjoying this one every once in a while: nothing stellar, but a nice change of pace. Some find the blueberry flavor artificial, but I think it is pleasant and worth trying once or twice.
