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.

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.
