2.88/5  rDev -15.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Poured into a pint glass. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a slightly hazy straw color with a 3/4 inch fizzy white head that immediately dissipates to a paper-thin ring around the edge of the glass and minimal surface foam. Little to no lacing.

S- Sugary sweet blueberry is detected as soon as the can was popped. In fact, all you can smell is blueberry. There's hardly any trace of wheat malt or alcohol and zero hop aroma.

T- Blueberry syrup and a touch of wheat but there's so much sugary blueberry sweetness, the wheat might as well not bother. Barely any alcohol detected and no bitterness.

M- Medium-low carbonation leaves the beer lame and boring. Body isn't incredibly light but light enough to add to the lack of excitement. The blueberry leaves a light syrupy coating on the tongue.

O- I used to like this beer when I was first getting into "craft" but now I find it way too heavy on the blueberry to the point that it just tastes like blueberry flavored seltzer water. Obviously one that's mainly for the ladies.
