This is a great brew. It smells and tastes very similar to Fruity Pebbles, which may sound strange but it is very good. This is one of only two wheat ales I've had (the other being Blue Moon) and I vastly prefer this one.

One of my secret beers I have always loved! They got the blueberry smell and tase just right. Like fruity Pebbles cereal.
