I had this on tap at the Yodler bar at Holliday Valley ski resort yesterday, served with fresh blueberries on top. The experience is similar to the local Fat Heads Bumble Berry, but I think it may be better. It sure hit the spot.

It's a little dark from the fruit, and the aroma is fresh and fruity. The taste is a nice balanced ale (brown?) with fruit on top. Very refreshing and satisfying.

Highly recommended.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Almost clear golden color with a white lacing around the edges of the glass. The blueberry scent is strong and the flavor is very present. The blueberry is light in the taste and this is and easy drinking beer with a very minor amount of blueberry lingering on the tongue. Not bad at all for a fruit beer from a very small brewery in my backyard. This is also my wife's go to beer when on draft.

Pours a clean pale yellow color with a small white head. In the aroma, fresh blueberries all day. In the taste, fresh dry blueberries, almost like a blueberry muffin. A small bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a note of dry blueberry skin in the aftertaste. Fresh blueberries and not sugary at all. Quite nice.

A - Hazy yellow with a white one finger head that disappears as fast as it comes, no lacing at all.

S - Blueberries that have been soaking in water for a few hours, not saying the smell is bad its just not too good.

T - Really balanced sweet blueberries and a slight bitterness of hops. The blueberries are not real tasting at all, which really disappoints me it could be such a good beer.

Cuzco sent me two of these a while back... I drank one and couldn't bring myself to crack the other one... Here's why:

This looks and pours like a BMC adjunt lager. Clear gold and fizzy. There is a little yeast at the end that turns the glass slightly cloudy, but it is just barely so. Weak retention. No lacing.
Smells weak. Very bland. Some light notes of blueberries remind me of frozen blueberries. Just barely a hint of wheat...

Taste is extremely watery. The body is thin. Not really wheaty or blueberry, so it is a total failure in terms of living up to its name.

Overall, this is not much better than a BMC lager, and as a result, the only people I see being impressed by this are those people that are just crossing over to craft.

got this from a friend who brought a growler back from there brewery in ellicotville. poured into a pint glass. the color is maybe that of a macro, maybe a little bit cloudier. nice head though. somewhat creamy white head with some good retention and some decent lacing.

in the aroma ur hit with blueberrys and biscuity wheat. smells similar to a blueberry muffin. not much else goin on.

nice blueberry taste, not too little and not too much like most fruit beers seem to be. also a nice balance of wheat biscuity taste. finishs light and refreshing with a slight bitter, tart finish.

light body, similar to a macro, tingly carbonation. not much going on here.

definately a nice sessionable beer, really goes down easy. i like this beer on a hot summer day, it really goes down easy. also i seem too enjoy it and back it more just cause its a local place thats definately not this most popular.

Pours out nice. Nice lacing and color, aroma is pleasant. I personally think they overdid the blueberry thing tough. If blueberry was reduced about 50% this might actually be a good brew...instead it's one of those brews that taste ok...for one bottle. Half way through the second bottle your on overload of "that" flavor.

Probably a great choice if your gonna have just ONE. I lump this into my "novelty" beer class.

this was a free gift from a friend at my beer store, so what the hell.Pours out a hazy light straw color, no wheat beer sediments,very faint carbonation.
Smells like Eggo Blueberry Waffles..I kid you not, I love blueberry waffles but not sure if I want to drink one. Light biscuity undertone, blueberry overtones...blueberry waffles.
Taste is...blueberry waffles. Light breads again, lots of blueberries...blueberry waffles, or now that I think of it Boo Berry cereal,take what you will from that.
Mouthfeel is light, too fruity and kinda-not-so-good. I don't believe I will ever purchase this one or take free samples ever again. Leineinkugel's wheat tastes like Fruity Pebbles, this tastes like Eggo's,whats going on here? maybe someone will come out with a Cinnamon Toast Crunch brown Ale, or a Cocoa Pebble Milk stout, that could be good. As for now, Im not diggin' this theme.

Poored a golden amber much like the average macro's lager what little head there was dissipated to just a film on top no lacing... says its a blueberry wheat beer but under that says malt beverage brewed with blue berries... lacks the wheat beer cloudiness
Smelled overwhelmingly of blueberry not much else there
tastes like blueberries were steeped in ___ light ( your fav. macro)
not much going on in the mouth
drinks fairly easy due to the fruitiness and very commercial beer look

Served on tap at the Ellicotville Brewing Co.

Appearance: Very misty orange color...completely transparent. It has an almost non existant white head which leaves no lacing. There are even blueberries floating around in here.

Smell: Blueberries, grains, wheat.

Taste: Once again, blueberries but with an odd smoky character. There is some light bitterness in there too. Eventually the sweetness from the blueberries gets a little overpowering. Definitely too sweet for me.

Mouthfeel: Slightly watery, could use a little but more carbonation.

Drinkability: Due to the overwhelming sweetness of this, it is hard to stomach it all. Truth be told, it would probably would have done better with a meal to have gone with it. Its not the worst thats out there...but certainly not the best.
