4.08/5  rDev +21.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into a tasting glass. pours a crystal clear, light amber color with minimal white head adnd poor retention.

aroma is of fresh, ripened blueberries with a touch of bready yeast. little else, though quite pleasant.

taste is well composed. the blueberries are more restrained on the palate with notes of pale malts in the background. nicely done without much sweetness, allowing the blueberries to be presented in an authentic fashion.

mouthfeel is light bodied with a very crisp finish and light overall character. the beer is composed very intelligently withuot overdoing the fruit. the blueberries are restrained on the palate.

drinkability is good. what a good fruit beer should be; very aromatic and not too sweet with a fresh character. not overdone, but just right. cheers!

Have tried this both in bottle and on tap

Nice clear golden color, pours a nice two finger head that lasts.

The blueberry aroma is very sweet and pronounced, but i was pleasantly surprised with the background banana bread aromas

likewise i went into this one skeptical, and came out with a smile. Beats adjunct competition hands down, noticeable blueberry almost overwhelms the wheat taste, I would scale it back some, but it has it's following.

Mouthfeel is a great change-up from typical craft beers….very drinkable.

Overall I would not hesitate to get this one again, I think there are a lot of closet Blue drinkers in the ATL

Serving type: on-tap

Pretty tasty, not six pack beer. Prolly one or two glasses, and you'll wanna switch to something else, but a lot less thick and consuming then blueberry beers out there. The blueberry flavor is just right . I really enjoyed this coming from a brew company that does more IPA then anything else
