Clear brass with a thin head. Smells like a blueberry muffin. Tastes like a grainy pale lager with blueberry muffin. Mouthfeel is medium body and a little sticky. Eh.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Must...resist...urge...to quote...Eiffel 65... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear brass topped by a finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises sweet blueberries covered in butter. The taste holds notes of cereal grains and biscuit covering a layer of vague and slightly vinyl-y blueberry syrup. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, this just did not do anything positive for me. The blueberry flavor, whether authentic or not, comes across as fake, and there seems to be a diacetyl thing going on.

Umm, no thank you. Generally like fruit beers but did not find this one enjoyable. Very light gold, almost no head, barely any lacing. There is just an off smell with some strong blueberries in there. Taste is similar, blueberries, but not much else other than something off. Very light, not much substance. Overall not a beer that I will revisit.

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.

Not a bad brew at all. It reminded me of Sam Adams Blackberry Witbier but not as sweet. It was was surprised a bit by the toasted notes and expected it to be a brighter more floral beer.

Popping the top to this brew it has a smoky type smell for reasons unknown as it is a wheat beer with blueberry. Pouring into my SAPP I get a brew with a bright golden color and a thin foamy white head. On the taste this brew has a spicy smoky flavor more than a sweet blueberry taste. Mouthfeel is good and the aftertaste is consistent with the upfront flavor. Nothing too spectacular here. Won't seek this one out but would drink it if offered one.

Rich blueberry aroma, though lacking flavor

Deep golden hue filtered blueberry ale, not a fan of synthetic fruit beer this is one of those generic golden ales with fake blueberry flavor in the finish. Light speckled head leaves a fine trail of lacing. Aroma has that fruity pebbles blueberry manufactured food additive nose. Flavor is slightly tart with blueberry/citrus notes and even earthy dry grains. Mouthfeel is light bodied meant to be consumed in the warm weather, this beer has probably found it's audience already, sorry I can't do this regularly.
