3.43/5  rDev -6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle courtesy of Cuzco pours a slightly hazed, light yellow color with a small cap of white head. Not much for retention or lacing.

Nose is very sweet, and I am guessing here, artificial blueberry aroma. This has to have some sort of extract in it...I am not one to hate on artificial flavors, so in this case it smells good, though a little like Fruity Pebbles.

Taste is not as sweet as the nose would indicate, but tastes like what I imagine an "essence of blueberry" would be. The malts are light and barely even qualify as grainy...maybe a light wheat tang. Not bad, but is a fairly forgettable fruit wheat beer.

3.91/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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

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.

Serving type: on-tap
