Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of sweet blueberries. Taste is crisp, malty, blueberries, not nearly as sweet as the smell would indicate. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

This beer is a pale yellow, pretty clear and bright overall with just a light haze. The head is a pillowy pure white one that manages about half a finger and sustains itself moderately well, leaving light patching in similar moderation through the session.
The aroma showcases sweet blueberries very strongly, showing some bread, wheat, and sweeter malts while allowing the blueberry to be the main feature. The smell remains strong all the way through, never fading.
The blueberry shows in the flavor, just not as well as the aroma, and comes out with a little more tartness. It gives off more wheat than is noticeable in the nose, and the crackery taste gives it a grainy sense in the middle.
The body is right, and it's light without needing to be heavier, but there's something a little slick in the middle, though it doesn't get carried away. It's nice and soft with a good carbonation and light bite of crispness.
