On tap at Canoe at Sweetwater sponsored CRK event.
Slightly hazy deep golden with very little head.
Fine aroma features blueberry: think fine fresh preserves. These is some wheat and barley malt base evident too.
The flavor has good balance, with prominent blueberry but a solid malt base. Only lightly sweet due to a good bit of tartness.
Medium-light body with near medium carbonation.
O: recommended

Crystal light yellow coloring with a wispy light and loose head.

The scent is primarily blueberry but a blueberry muffin aroma seems more dominant. A combination of the blueberry and grain must create this illusion.

The taste is a light blueberry flavor with an even lighter barley malt. The taste is incredibly soft and needs some amperage.

The feel is bubbly, airy and light, with mildly refreshing effervescence.

I'm one to score fruit beers relatively high as I tend to enjoy them but this simply fell short in most categories.
