Has the appearance of a standard wheat beer, was hoping for some kind of blue hue, but no. Alas, same thing in the aroma, lacked blueberry, even acknowledging it takes a lot of blueberry to give off the mild aroma, but nonetheless, some have it, most don't, this one falls into the most don't category.

Finally came across ever so slight in the taste and mouthfeel. Even in summer, there's just better options when you want your blueberry kick.

Had this on tap a lonnnnng time ago, now I finally found it in bottles.

A : Pours a hazy honey colored hue with 80% opacity. The head is two fingers tall and sticks around for awhile, eventually receding to 1/2 finger. Lacing is left in a polite ring.

S : The aroma is pretty difficult to nose - it's faint, but some blueberries, yeast, and wheat mixture can be smelled. A special emphasis on wheat cracker and spice.

T : A rich wheat presence with a slight pop of sweet blueberry. Faint bitterness from the berry fades out the profile.

F : A nice, tight creaminess and a speckled carbonation, ending off on a slightly semi-dry metallic note.

O : This is a solid blueberry/general fruit wheat beer. I'd have it again, and I do buy it in sixers now that I can find it. Pretty solid, especially when poured.

Pour a deep clear golden with minimal head. Nose features faint candied blueberries, a hint of lemon, and a prominent wheat note that comes off a little musty akin to a adjunct light lager. Taste is somewhat sweet with notes of green apple, faint blueberry, and more of that musty wheat note. Mouthfeel is light, not much body on this. Overall, this quenches the thirst and isn't bad for a hot summer day. Unfortunately, the blueberry doesn't come through much and the base beer seems to be darn near a light lager.

L: Pours brilliant amber with a very slight purple tint under a thin white foam collar. S: Faint wheat, light blueberry, some vegetal. T: Bready blueberry with the intensity of the blueberry growing towards the finish. F: Light and refreshing with above slightly average carbonation. O: They use enough blueberry to let you know it is there but not so much as to over power the base beer. The flavors are well balanced.

Just a "meh" beer. Very light blueberry smell, none in the taste. Some metallic generic ale taste. Not awful, but I'm not a fan.
