Slightly gold (could've been the light), no head. Nothing showing for any kind of lacing.
Smelled trace amounts of wheat and blueberry. Some faint malt.
Taste was average blueberry ale with hints of malt and a slightly sweet finish.
Very light finish. Crisp clean with no residue. If this was given to me I'd drink it but as far as ordering it again, nah. Nice try though.

Since I hadn't had any "berry" beers since the Thirsty Dog , I figured I'd give this one a shot even though you gotta really be something special to make me like a fruit beer.

It appeared a cloudy, almost pink, and kind of looked like a malternative. I saw them pouring a lot of these and a few pitchers, but most of the beers RRBC had on were light/summer beers. So, it's not bad, with no head, filled to the top. It smelled of a faint raspberry but not much else. Mouth was , better than average. The alchohol was noticeable but not a distraction and was a bit thicker and not syrupy. As for the flavor, a faint berry note is all you get, then a sub-par wheat takes control with an a faint taste like Falls City in the background. It was hard to finish. It was as if someone put a bit of raspberry pop in a common wheat beer.

Drinkability: Nope. Gals may dig this, but it it was as advertised, a "berry" wheat, just not a whole one with everything standing on it's own rather that combining to make a good beer.
