Had this beer on tap in a 22 oz. glass. Golden straw in color with thin white head. The smell of the beer was blueberries all the way. The taste on the other hand only had a hint of blueberry which was a little disappointing. Over all though it was a good beer and i enjoyed it.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a sam adams glass and a nice dense white head developed which had great retention and lacing for a lighter beer. Appearance was a golden / straw color with a slight haze. Aroma was very fruity and definitely of blueberry. Almost a cake like aroma. Tasted of blueberry with hints of wheat and grain. Very light mouthfeel with a light, almost sweet aftertaste.

Serving type: can

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.
