Light, straw golden yellow color. Looks fairly watery. One thumb of bone white foam dwindles to a smooth, diminutive layer. Hardly any lace.

The blueberry notes in the aroma are wont to change; I'm picking up alternating notions of blueberry skin, flesh, Jolly Ranchers, cotton candy and War Heads. Soft tufts of wheat are timid. Hints of over-ripe berry rot every now and then.

This tastes like garbage water. Horrid, fake "blueberry," doughy wheat and metallic hops. The after taste is wretched.

The body is incredibly thin and plagued by overbearing, fizzy carbonation. The carbonation / body / flavor ratio is such that is feel like a fresh soda that has had water dumped in it.

Wow, this is undrinkable. Really, really terrible.

Served on tap into a pint glass at the Mellow Mushroom, Marietta, GA

A: Standard gold color, clear body, one finger foamy head that lasted a while, lots of persistent lacing

S: mild blueberries

T: Tasted like blueberries but not overly so. Some hops but not strong. Aftertaste a bit bitter.

M: Really good feel; carbonation is mild and right for the beer.

O: good summer fruit beer

A - Poured out a clear, pale golden yellow color with a small, short-lived head of fizzy foam. It left little to no lacing.

S - It smelled of blueberry. Yup, blueberry. Maybe there was wheat there, too.

T - Tasted of blueberry. There were some beer-like flavors, too.

M - It was crisp, sharp and fairly smooth. A light bodied brew with a dry finish.

O - This is what I expected. A Blueberry ale that is mostly blueberry and not particularly interesting.
