12 oz bottle into tulip

A: Golden wheat color, nice 2 finger head.

S: At first it smelled great, like blueberry pancakes, but once I got my nose into it, the blueberries started to smell off and more synthesized than at first. Once that wore off then there was some light wheat smell.

T: much more mild than the nose, this was a nice wheat beer, with a hint of blueberry. The blueberry lingered as a nice aftertaste

M: thin and fizzy, but over all not bad

O: Not terrible, was worried by the nose but taste was fine. I am not a huge blueberry fan (a friend bought this) so I probably wont drink it again, but was worth drinking.

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.

A: Pours a light copper with a small white head.

S: Nose is loaded with blueberries, and a touch of wheat.

T: Strong wheat backbone, with solid blueberry overtones and a decent malty finish. A bit tart.

M: Medium bodied and on the smooth side.

O: Pretty good. Not as dry as their raspberry beer, but I think that's more apt for the blueberry admixture. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes fruit infused wheat beers.
