12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Cloudy peach-mango. One inch head with good retention. Nice lacing throughout.

S - Fresh ripe blueberries. Outstanding!

T - Sweet malts, tettnang noble hops, and citrus dominate with a delicious blueberry finish.

M -Medium

O - Funny thing is that I'm not a huge blueberry fan. The berry taste does not dominate and is light & refreshing. I much prefer it over Sam's Cheery Wheat. Cheers!

This is rather a limpid pale gold beer that developed almost no head at all. The nose is what I expect from such things: frankenberry cereal, basically. The flavor as well: sickeningly sweet berryish beer with no other flavors. This is very badly made berry beer ever, way too sweet to finish.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a Samuel Adams perfect pint glass

A - It is golden in color with some straw highlights. It is topped with three inches of off-white head that readily clings to the sides of the glass.

S - Blueberry is the first aroma. Then I notice some lemon and citrus.

T - The taste starts out with blueberry. Then lemon zest and citrus come into play. The finish is fairly clean.

M - Thin to moderate

O - I like how the hops add lemon and citrus so this beer isn't overdone with blueberry. It is more enjoyable than I thought while celebrating the U.S. of A. declaring its independence.

3.63/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle, part of the summer mixed 12 pack, recently (and finally) made available in Alberta.

This beer pours a hazy, medium golden amber colour, with a fistful of puffy, densely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves some splattered, yet somewhat layered strips of sudsy lace around the glass as things duly recede.

It smells of sugary blueberries - almost ice-cream like - semi-sweet pale malt, a hint of equally saccharine citrus juice, further indistinct red fruity notes, and a cartoonish rock candy essence. Yeah. The taste is thankfully not quite as sweet from every damned direction, the blueberry and its friends taking a few steps back, allowing for a gritty, almost astringent graininess to emerge, both pale malt and wheat in origin, with the proclaimed citrus character sidling in there as well.

The bubbles are fairly tight, and not overly fun to play with, the body medium-light in weight, quite generically smooth, and strangely creamy (not just from the airy vector, either). It finishes still on the sweet side, the blueberries, to their credit, hanging on with vigor, alongside the lingering citrusy hops.

Nothing particularly complex, but hey, nothing off or pandering about this offering, for that matter. If you like blueberries, and a swinging to and fro sweetness, then this one might be for you. Me, I can appreciate the fruitiness, and attempt at balance here, so I will certainly pop the other one of this from the mixed pack on my sunny deck in the coming weeks.
