look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I grabbed one of these when I made my own six pack at World Market.

A: A nice, extemely light amber, almost golden, a small frothy head that doesn't stick around long at all. No lacing to speak of.

S: Like fresh baked blueberry muffins, pleasant and surprising, but not much else to speak of.

T: Blueberry with a side of blueberry, and me being a fan of the flavor I was pleased, although if you're looking for complexity beyond the obvious, slight grain and blueberry, there really isn't too much to be found.

M: Smooth, with a nice amount of carbonation, that isn't overwhelming to the pallet.

D: I would definitely recommend this as a dessert beer or for a hot summer day. Although, the flavoring of fruit beers tends to wear thin for me after a few bottles.

3.61/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a bright yellow. Lots and lots of bubbles. small 1/2 finger head that is pretty bubbly. Less than average retention

S - Smells very sweet. The blueberry is present and rules the beer. Smells like a blueberry pie

T - Not nearly as sweet as the smell would indicate. The blueberry is present but balanced nicely by the malts. Another good note is the blueberry tastes like real blueberries and not a fake addititive

M - very light and bubbly in the mouth. Easy to drink and smooth as can be

O - This would be a good summertime poolside beer. I wouldnt want to drink it all the time but its a nice change every once in a while

3.2/5  rDev -5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Nice and crisp. Blueberry isn't wicked overwhelming and has just the right bit of tartness to be intriguing outside of the blueberry taste. Smell is somewhat missing, as there's just a hint of aroma of blueberry on the nose in front of a nearly nonexistent, faint, no - strike that; there is no other smell. Appearance is. Pretty pedestrian as well, with virtually no lacing or head sitting on a mundane gold liquid with a few overachieving bubbles trying to escape. But, for what it is from a style standpoint, it is pretty good and could serve well as a BMC alternative at summer parties.

3.59/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Press a brilliant golden straw with a foamy white head that dissipates somewhat quickly.

Real blueberries dominate the aroma, with lightly bready malt underlying.

Flavor is more cracker-malt dominant, refreshing, with blueberry sweetness appearing briefly, and finishing slightly tart/fruity. A beer with fruit, rather than vice versa.

Body is fairly light, with moderate to a touch high carbonation. It's crisp.

Better than most fruit beers, in that it still tastes like a decent brew. Good aroma.

Serving type: on-tap
