3.59/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden-yellow color with a two finger fluffy white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a blueberry nature mixed with some grainy wheat aromas. The blueberry is quite potent, but not overly sweet and has a nice almost drier smell as there are only lighter notes of a more caramel and sugary sweetness.

Taste – The taste begins with a flavor of a light wheat and blueberry flavor. The nose is heavier then the taste however, with the flavors being relatively subdued in comparison to the smell. The blueberry gives way with the wheat growing slightly stronger as the taste moved on from the beginning to the end. All the while a lighter sugary sweet taste that is upfront fades to the end with a slight bit of acidic and light bitter flavor comes to the tongue at the end of the taste leaving a dry blueberry wheat taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is very light and crisp with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are quite nice for the blueberry and wheat flavors of the brew and make for a refreshing style brew.

Overall – This would be a nice beer for a hot summer day as it is light, fruity and refreshing. Other then on a warm day in summer however this is one I would not go to on any great occasion as it is a little lacing in the flavor department.

3.46/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Light straw/golden in color with a slight haze, this beer produces a very slight head of foam that fizzes into nothing in minutes. The nose on this beer is fruit/berry- like with a sweet wheat malt backing.

This beer offers a mild flavor of wheat and blueberries. The blueberry flavor is moderate and it does taste natural, which is good. The wheat malt backbone isn’t very strong, but it’s sufficient and it keeps the blueberries in check. There is little in the way of hop character, but this is expected for a style such as this.

I have to admit this is a very refreshing beer and it makes a good summertime drinking option. I would prefer a little more body and a little nicer appearance, but this beer is still good for what it is. It’s the type of beer that will go over well with the shandy crowd and others who like their beer to taste a little sweeter and more approachable. Some added blueberries would actually improve this beer but it’s still pretty good on its own.
