3.69/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance 3.5: Poured out a hazy, grayish yellow with a small head that quickly dissipated. This beer looks like a wheat: hazy and a strange yellowish color. Still, looks appetizing and reminds me of a saison with its appearance.

Smell 3.5: Nice bouquet. Slight hint of citrus rinds, blueberries (!) and treacly light grains. Nice hint of a low-level hop...I am thinking Saaz?

Taste 3.75: Front is spicy, with a somewhat flat malt taste. Middle brings out more of the spicy yeast taste and a big hint of perfumy citrus (it tastes better than it sounds). Finish is also somewhat flat, but is very dry and refreshing. Aftertaste features more of the blueberry, citrus and spicy yeast and fades very quickly... .

Mouthfeel 3.75: Crisp, refreshing and complementary level of carbonation.

Overall 3.75: Very good, borderline excellent beer. The blueberry taste grows on you and reminds me of a boysenberry ale that I loved that is no longer being produced. This beer is light, refreshing and entirely sessionable. Recommended...if you can find it!

3.36/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A: A very light yellow color with a finger of head. A little hazy as most belgian wits and not much lacing.
S: I could smell the orange peel and the wheat, but something was a little off. Whenever I put my nose to this it seemed a little off putting.
T: I taste the wheat and the orange. A little bit of spice. Tastes a little watery to me. Nothing special but nothing bad.
MF: Nice and crisp. Great carb on this beer. This is a great beer in warm weather. And its in the 80s today. This is going down nicely.
O: Nothing special. This is a great summer beer. Has a little more going on than a Blue Moon or Shock Top.

Serving type: can

3.51/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served from tap in to a shaker. Poured a hazy pale golden yellow with a one finger pure white head that subsided to a half finger amount slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, grain, earth, and subtle spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, wheat, grain, and very subtle fruit. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. For the style this one wasn't too bad with all of the usual aspects o e would expect, but sadly it didn't really do much more than that for me. It could have used a little more of a sweet profile to help balance out the earthy notes going one. Still not too bad for a nice sunny day out.

Serving type: on-tap
