3.08/5 rDev -7.2%
Pale orange with small white head steadily shrinking to ring.
Aroma is light grain, hints of apple cider, grass, plus a firm, clear but not strong element of blueberry.
Taste is first sweetish light blueberry with grain, then vague grassy bitterness and lightly bitter, almost chemically-peppery blueberry skin. Faint grain aftertaste with faint blueberry, overall a bit thin of character and the almost chemically bite of the blueberry is a negative. Body and feel are pretty good, a bit lively, not really watery. Blueberry if clearly present but not overpowering, yet it is not a very good character. It's not a terrible beer by any means but it's not very good, either.

Pours light hazed yellow with a thin fluffy head. Some lacing sticks.
The smell is of light blueberry.
The taste is of blueberry with a hint of wheat tang.
The feel is rather fizzy and light.
A typical, average American fruit beer. The blueberry is on the soft side, especially in the nose and there's not much else to it.
