Had this one a few times before and last sampled last night on 1/23/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F and poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a good 1+-finger of white head that doesn't last long. Some spotty lacing was seen when sipped. The explosion of blueberries comes through when first opened! Smells fantastic! Average carbonation. Lots of blueberry taste with a 'wheat' finish. Very pleasing overall.

They don't sell you short on the "blueberry-ness" of the beer. From the time you crack the top, to the first sip and swish in your mouth, expect a full palate of blueberry. This is truly a fruit beer geared for those willing to sacrifice complexity in the name of a refreshing, easy summer drink. Great for parties, the beer pairs well with a variety of grilled meets and easily fit into summer-themed parties. Don't expect much in the way of hops or non-blueberry tasting qualities. It is what it's advertised to be, a truly blueberry-centric beer.

One of the best fruit beer I've ever tasted. It's not overpowering and has a nice balance. Light, tangy, crisp.

When you open a bottle you get a distinct blueberry smell, followed by some nice hops. The flavor is certainly blueberry but again, not overpowering. Some citrus notes, a bit of spice, followed by a nice bitter hops finish but smooth throughout. Appearance-wise, the beer has a coppery color, light foam head.

I've tried a great many fruit beers and most do not get the right balance: either being too sweet or losing taste of the fruit all together. Sea Dog tends to get it right with all their beers.
