Someone left this in the fridge after our wedding. Tick!
This beer pours a very light bodied pale gold in color with a one finger white head. The nose is light and features light blueberry muffin and has a light cereal, wheat aspect. It's subtle. The flavors too are light and approachable. There is a moderate amount of blueberry muffin followed by pale malt and a yeastiness that leads into the aftertaste. It's ok. It's somewhat artificial. I can see this as being extremely female friendly. It is very light and overly drinkable. If you're looking for an outside or pool beer with a light fruity punch this could be your beer.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.
A nice brass to very light bronze colored body, super crystal clear and nice thin rising carbonation. Head is only about a finger and a fluffy consistency, off white in color and looks ok otherwise.
A real nice fruit character, very noticeable blueberry but also some off putting aromas. A bit of bile, acrid grain senses, but for the most part passable it seems.
A very surprising light palate and much more tolerable and enjoyable than the nose would indicate. Hints of light crisp malt, and a quick carbonation feeling on the finish with tight bubbles on the tip of the tongue. Nice fruit blueberry, doesn't come off cloying, sickly sweet, syrupy, or horrifically tart either. Good clean finish with some almost pils like crisp dry character, but not much chewy wheat backbone.
Overall though pretty tasty for a fruit brew.
