Strong Blueberry Nose, as expected.Light yellow.Crisp, though with an unexpected alcohol aftertaste. Good Light summer beer, but nothing special. Poured from Bottle to pint glass. From Beer of the month Club.

Pours a mostly transparent straw-to-honey gold with a thin fingernail of cotton white head.

Aromas of blueberry cereal and blueberry muffin tops. Gorgeous.

The flavor is mostly malty, with hints of straw, tart blueberries, citric acid, and a finish of lingering notes of blueberry cereal and wheat.

Feel is crisp and carbonated, slightly creamy.

Overall, a very enjoyable blueberry ale that doesn't overdo it on sweetness and is crisp and enjoyable. The blueberry flavor is natural and not fake. A simple, great, enjoyable beer.

This beer has been around for about 20 years. Pours a yellow in the standard SRM realm for such a thing. For being a wheat beer there doesn't seem to be much in the way of hazy particulate floating around. Aroma is a feint blueberry and some grainish-ness.

Taste, a little sweet, lacking the 'beerness' of a beer, just hits with sweet, smooth, nothing much in terms of hops or malt to speak of flavor wise. Not super terrible, but I would have to say probably below average in terms of beer, fruit or otherwise, just not impressive under any standard or genre. Too much sweet, not enough fruit, malt, hops, yeast etc. . .

Taste: refreshing wild blueberry, slight sweet, wheat, smooth finish. Same with the nose. Gold, clear, with a smaller head and lace in taster glass. Medium body. Not that artificial Blueberry extract some use.
