12 Oz Bottle poured into a glass
Look - fairly clear golden appearance with not much head and no lacing on the glass. hmmm
Smell - Gee whiz. I knew it would be rich with blueberry but this is a very strong unnatural blueberry aroma and it smells exactly like a Welch's blueberry fruit gummy. It's not terrible but i was under the impression this was a fresh Maine blueberry beer
Taste - Okay much better than the smell. Blueberry dominates the taste but you get the bready wheat and the sugar which makes it taste similar to a blueberry muffin or scone. It's solid, medium body and medium-high carbonation. I can't detect much bitterness, there is some malt on the back.

Overall, the beer doesn't try to do too much, it's basically just blueberry flavored beer which is certainly refreshing in the summer to take a break from the normal beers. Not my preferred flavor and not the best fruit beer but it is tasty
I will give this beer a B-

Very thin for a wheat beer. Also very carbonated. The combination makes it tastes like a soda. Blueberry favor is strong and overall a bit sweet. It's not bad, but it tastes kind of like something you'd drink in junior high.

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.
