Slightly darker than straw color. Quickly disapating head. Deep but distant blueberry aroma. Not sweet like flavor extract beers. Slight blueberry flavor upfront quickly subsides to tasteless, wheaty middle, drawn out wheat on palate. blueberries reappear in finish and mix with some bitter to balance

One of my favorite blueberry beers. The smell is nice, and I love how this blueberry beer is not overly sweet, and you get a nice bitterness as it goes down the hatch. Just enough blueberry flavor to let me know it's there, but not overwhelming. Good for a hot day - out by the pool or mowing the yard.

From the 12 fl. oz. can. Sampled on July 18, 2014.

The pour is straw yellow with a foamy white head and the slightest fog. Looks like an adjunct light lager.

The aroma us subtle. The toasted grain and pale malts are enhanced by the subtle blueberry note. Nothing overwhelms the other.

The body is light and refreshing.

The taste is also on the barley grain, pale malt side with a hunt of blueberry and a crisp, clean finish.

For what it is a light beer meant for a hot summer day it is perfect. A pleasant aroma of blueberry. Followed by a delicious proportion of blueberry. I understand that a dark beer connoisseurs die hard would not enjoy the light fruit flavored beverage. If its a nice summer day and I don't want a heavy beer this would be excellent.

Serving type: on-tap

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving wispy bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Faint aromas of blueberries and pale malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has strong flavors of blueberries with hints of of sugar and pale malts. It almost tastes like a blueberry muffin, except that there is a little bitterness towards the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seems one dimensional as it has really nice flavors of blueberries but is lacking in the smell and mouthfeel. At yeast it doesn't use artificial coloring to make the beer appear blue.
