Picked up a bottle randomly at Pin's.

Pale yellow-gold color, with a bubbly white that sank to a thin ringlet, leaving some light lacing on the glass. Light citrus and toasted wheat in the aroma, not as much blueberry as I would have expected. Largely the same in the taste, toasted grains, light hints of lemon, and the blueberry was candy-like but quite faded. This was a lighter bodied brew, drinkable, lacking the harshness that I get from the grainy quality in many wheat beers. Decent, but not something I'd drink regularly.

Found this mixed and marched at the House of 1,000 beers. Very cheap just $1.85 for the single.

A - Quite cloudy orange yellow color slightly dark with a 1/4 inch of head that settles quickly to a light lace ring. Sticky lacing.
S - Very fruity waves of citrus and intense blueberry, but not sour like a iambic more like pie filling. Hope it's at least tart.
T - Well it does have a distinct blueberry taste not tart or intense. The wheat is done well rounding out the flavors of both the citrus and blueberry. Sweet, fruity, light.
M - Light to medium easy to chug but better to sip. Very tasty.

Overall this is good stuff only available for a limited time. Will try and get another 6 pack I am liking it as much as O'fallon Wheach which I now have a case of!

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.
