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.

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.
