12 oz. bottle poured into a Flying Dog goblet

A: Straw/Blonde that is hazy but has lots of carbonation bubbling up.

S: It smells like old blueberry muffins from a box mix. Not much of a funk but a bit of lemon bars in there as well.

T: Standard bland wheat beer with a hint of what seems like artificial blueberry. This one will be put to better use in the form of blueberry pancakes. Sorry DuClaw, again with the miss.

M: Bubbly and effervescent.

O: Not to my palate. Tastes like standard "beer" or what I associate it as, to me. I've been meaning to make pancakes anyway, so this will do great.

A- Pale golden body with crystal clear transparency. Thin white head that hangs around for a while and leaves lacing.

S- Blueberries, orange, lemon, wheat. Very fragrant and sugary.

T- Fizzy blueberry and citrus up front, with some wheat mixed in. Really as advertised, but the fruit tastes somewhat artificial. Almost like you would expect from a Capri-Sun.

M- Fizzy and thin. Would be drinkable except for the artIficial aftertaste.

O- The fruit flavor is just not good unfortunately. I did not get the artificial chocolate peanut butter in sweet baby Jesus, but this one does taste artificial unfortunately.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clearish golden color. The head is a finger high and white in shade. While it has a nice creaminess, it doesn't have good retention. A minute ring of lacing is left on the glass.

S: The first thing I smell is pure Fruity Pebbles. Additional notes of candied sugar and wheat are prevalent. If I really concentrate, I can even pick up a touch of lemon. It's fairly simplistic in its aroma. On the plus side, it knows it's a simple fruited wheat beer instead of posing as a witbier or hefeweizen. It does what it purports to do admirably.

T: The fruitiness is quite prevalent at first, bringing both blueberry and lemon. It seems a bit artificial, unfortunately, but it doesn't screw it up completely. A simple wheat flavor finishes it off. It's just another fruited wheat beer at the end of the day, but it's pulled off decently.

M: Body-wise, it's a bit viscous, and not exactly bone dry on the finish. Sweetness lingers, but not annoyingly. The texture could be creamier, though. High carbonation wills it down quite easily - indeed, this one is fairly refreshing.

O: Back in the day, right before I got into craft beer, I mainly drank Leinie's Sunset Wheat. Drinking this reminds me of those days, so I've grown a bit of a soft spot toward it. This won't win any awards, or even be my first choice for a warm weather refresher, but I'll probably drink it again at some point.
