2.25/5  rDev -22.9%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Appearance- Crystal clear, amber with a small white head that quickly dissipates. No lacing at all. Just like the apricot, I have to ask "This is a wheat? ".

Aroma- Wow. This smells...no....reaks of blueberry. No other beer aroma.

Taste- Taste better than it smells. Still has an over-powering blueberry taste, but there is hints of malt in there. No hops whatsoever.

Mouthfeel- Fairly light body. Carbontion level is quite good. Not as dry and puckering as I'd expect from a wheat, but quite pleasant all the same.

Drinkability- This might be a good beer for people who don't loike beer, but other than that, it's pretty dismal. (633 characters)

This seems to be the blueberry version of the Kennebunkport Apricot Wheat; same abv, same brewer, same spot on the shelf at TJ's in Cary. Also shares a thin yellow body with absolutely no head. Nose is artificial blueberry with a hint of weak malt.

This tastes almost the same as its apricot brethren. Flat and flavorless except for some weak malting. Sweet overtone and dry, grainy finish.

This seems to be produced by the same people that make the ubiquitous, uniformly lousy Sea Dog and Shipyard products. That's the last they're getting of my dineros. (563 characters)

a: Much like the pumpkin ale, white head over a golden body gives a macro-esque appearance. Retains for a minute and then goes flat.

smell and taste: Smells like one of those blueberry pies you'd buy at a gas station, and tastes about the same...not bad, but blatantly "flavoured". Clean wheat malts and even a spicy note on the nose. More clean wheats on the tongue...this would be a much better beer without the flavor. Very dry. Lightly hopped. Aftertaste of Fruity Pebbles.

m: medium-high carbonation and a light body

d: actually pretty good drinkability, but the flavor wears me down after awhile

best by June 2008, quite the shelf life, single bottle from Trader Joe's Cary (684 characters)

Bottle says "Kennebunkport Brewing Company" however a quick search of the brewers site shows that it is brewed by Federal Jack's for trader joe's.

A- Dark yellow in color, almost apple cideresque. Small 1.5 finger head that fades quickly with no lacing. Looks very carbonated.

S- Smells deeply of blueberries. Underneath is a hefeweizen wheat smell.

T- Tastes of wheat and grain. Semi sweet malts with a hint of blueberry, but not nearly as much as I expected from the nose.

M- Mouthfeel is very carbonated with about medium viscosity.

D- This beer goes down really easy but I think I would get tired of the blueberry sweetness pretty fast, none the less its worth a try if your looking for a fruit beer. (709 characters)
