This ale defines the style. A slight aroma of blueberry, balanced by a subtle flavor that gets fermented into this delicious wheat ale.

Poured on tap into a wheat ale glass in Seekonk MA. From notes consumed on 10-8-2012.

A fourteen carat gold body, quite clear, with lively carbonation. Head is presented about a finger deep with a very bright white and also a real creamy appearance. Beer is also served with floating blueberries in the glass though.

Nose brings some light blueberries sort of canned smelling, even a little bit of a powdery yeast bent also. Not too bad.

Palate hits with very light malts, but not much beer like backbone. Creamy blueberry fruit character hits in the finish just barely, but with some toasty grain qualities. Mouthfeel actually has a bit of pleasant creamy character as well, but a little thin.

Overall not too bad, a fairly enjoyable fruit beer, although I wish they would stop serving these things in places with blueberries in them.

a - poured a one finger thick eggshell colored head into an english pub glass that settled to a thin ring. i didn't stick around for the whole beer to see if it lasted though. the body was a bubbly, bright gold color.
s - blueberry pie if it wasn't made with blueberries. hint of breadiness.
t - same as the aroma.
m - very thin and clean.
o - gross, i poured it down the drain.

You know what it's time for...yes, boys and girls...yet another piece of the puzzle entitled "Free Beers From Work"!

Pours a very pale orange with a bit of haze. Small spritzy white head becomes a ring quite quickly eventually dissipating to just about nothing.

A decent, authentic blueberry scent - not particularly strong or complex but pleasant enough.

Taste is similar, it's all about the blueberries but it's not overly sweet, decent flavor and doesn't come off as artificial. Not much else to it other than some bready malts, graininess, maybe a touch of sweeter caramel malts. Not bad, kinda boring.

Decent mouthfeel, a bit thin with some spritzy carbonation.

Really not bad, doesn't stimulate the senses much, but wouldn't mind having it again.
