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.

3.91/5 rDev +7.1%

Appearance - Very light colored beer. Somewhat hazy with a very full white 1/2 inch head. Nice lacing.
Smell - First thing that strikes you is the strong fruity smell of blueberry. Then the malt and the hops aroma blends in well.
Taste - Very balanced with nice malt, citrusy hops and a very refreshing blueberry flavor - not artificial at all.
Mouthfeel - Light and refreshing to the pallet.
Overall this is a great summer sippin on the deck beer. At EBC, they serve with fresh blueberries in the beer, so we have taken to doing this at our home as well. This is really, the only fruit beer that I enjoy.
Serving type: Fresh on tap at EBC and bottle
Serving type: on-tap
