The first time I had this was 2 years ago back in college, with no real recollection of it. This time, I am properly tasting and drinking it, poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A - pours a unique color similar to ginger ale or a white wine. It's kind of light colored with carbonation always floating back up. I think this is a bit weird because there was maybe a millimeter of head.

S - there's a strong scent of blueberry, as should be obvious. The smell is similar to a blueberry yogurt: that artificial blueberry scent with sugars. You won't find real blueberries smelling like this.

T - the flavor in my first sip was underwhelming and it stayed consistently underwhelming throughout. There is the tiniest blueberry taste that is hard to point out, and not much else in there. The beer tastes a bit like seltzer water.

M - mouth feel is very light with lots of carbonation. The carbonation feeling lends itself to drinking a soda or that seltzer mentioned above, with a slight tingle on the tongue.

O - not an enjoyable beer at all. It smells good and that really got my hopes up, but the taste did not deliver. Lacking in flavor with a less than impressive mouth feel, I would not drink this again.

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.
