This one is a clear dark yellow-gold. It forms an off-white head that initially rises to a strong two fingers in height and leaves a thick foam when it recedes. The head that remains drops a good amount of sticky lacing in patches all the way down.
Blueberry is strong off the nose, pouring out of the bottle before I empty it into my glass. That said, for as strong as the blueberry is I have no problem picking out the crackery dry malts that lay down a firm backbone. The blueberry is fresh and there's just enough of a light herbal hops note to this beer to add an element without distracting.
This is one of the better fruit beers out there as far as how flavorful it is, how natural it is, and how all of the different notes integrate together. The blueberry, dry malts and light hops work very nicely. Malts are very wheat-like. I have to give an edge to the aroma only because I get just a hint of graininess coming underneath into the finish.
This is a light ale, and the body is appropriate for the style. It's also pretty smooth. There's something about how the play between the crispness and the herbal dryness, both fine in themselves, seems a little funny to me. I think it may be that they both linger into the finish and, while either by itself is good, there's an interesting sort of clash happening ever so slightly.
