Got to try this at the Mammoth brew fest.

A- Pretty basic. Yellow, transparent, no head. Appears to look like an average pale ale.

S- Smell is overwhelming of blueberries. Almost too much blueberry smell like they had dumped in blueberry concentrate.

T- Taste is good but all I get is carbonated blueberry drink. This is practically a sparkling blueberry with a slight hint of malt and hardly any alcohol.

M- Crisp and refreshing. Easy to drink outdoors in the sun but it doesn't feel like i'm drinking a beer.

D- Too easy to drink. This was the first beer i've had from San Diego brewing so I can't knock them on a fruit beer but it was decent. I would still try some of their other beers.

I had this beer on tap at Blue Palms (Hollywood). It was gold-colored and slightly hazy, but more transparent than most wheat beers I've seen. The head was light and white, and it dissipated quickly without a trace.

It smelled mostly of blueberries with a subdued bready malt note in the background.

The taste, like the nose, was mostly of blueberries followed by cereal malt. It almost tasted like fruity pebbles. The aftertaste was of grain. The taste was not very complex, but I was not necessarily turned off by this.

The mouthfeel was light and refreshing with moderate carbonation and a smooth finish.

I could drink many of these one after the other. I was thirsty, and this beer hit the spot. I could imagine the blueberries becoming overwhelming if you're not in the mood for them, but tonight, this beer was just what I was looking for.

I've not had too many blueberry beers so I admittedly don't have a lot of others to compare against. Tasted as part of a sample at the brewery near Qualcom stadium.

Appearance was very light colored, somewhat clear with CO2 bubbles forming on the side of the glass. Nothing amazing about it, the head didn't seem to last long but that may have been different in a full sized glass.

Smell was all blueberries. Fresh picked smell. Really amazing. Really it was probably a little overwhelming but this is really only my second time trying this style so like I said I don't know.

Taste was blueberry, more of the blueberry skin than anything. Tasted slightly sweet but that may be due to the lack of bitterness. Not a whole lot of hop quality. Once again probably too much blueberries but I appreciated how different it was.

Mouthfeel was thin, with carbonation on the tongue. Kind of the same feel you'd get from a soda. Probably within style though.

Very drinkable, allthough since the beer is really one-dimensional it probably won't keep you interested for long. But not bad.
