Poured from tap in Tallahassee, FL. Decent pale colored pour with a thin foam. May have had this beer a long time ago, but can't remember anything about if if I did.

I wish I had some long elegant review for you, but the reality is i couldn't stomach this beer long enough to be able to do that. Quite simply, this is the worst beer I've ever had. Barely any carbonation, and incredibly light mouthfeel with an awful, sour/spoiled and bitter blueberry aftertaste... it was all I could do to finish this beer

a travesty of blueberry-flavored beer and an uncalled for fiasco in my mouth, this blueberry wheat ale is lacking in taste when compared to many others--and the taste that is present is... kind of bad.

Clear apricot body with a small head that yields very little lacing.

Blueberry is first, followed by a sour mustiness and proceeded by some thin American wheat malt. The mustiness is reminiscent of the dog on the label of the bottle. Meh.

Yeah, it tastes like blueberry, but in a children's Robitussin kind of way. Like candy flavor blueberry. And that's about it. A little wheat in there, a little hop bitterness in the finish, but mostly cloying, sticky blueberry.

Mouthfeel is thin and the clearity means filtering. If this had been unfiltered I would have enjoyed it much more as I bet some more wheat would have gotten through, as well as yeast and hops as well.

Not good. Its a beer, but it tastes unbalanced and feels watery. I might want an MGD before I have this one again. Blueberry flavor is so sticky that it isn't even that refreshing.

Poor "artificial" smell and taste. Similar to blueberry candy flavor.

Low to no wheat notes.

Lingering unpleasant metallic taste.

Stock on shelf well past expiration date.

Not overly sweet but needs more sourness to round flavor.

Swing and a miss! Try again.

Pours crystal clear and straw yellow with a fizzy white head with less retention than Coke.

Artificially sweet blueberry aromas dominate the nose.

Cloying artificial sweetener sweet blueberry. Tastes like diet pop. Not good.

Mouthfeel is reminiscent of soda water. Way too effervescent. This beer was way too fakely sweet. Could barely share a bottle with a friend. Blecch.

Nice clear straw with white head, a little R&L. Smells of fake or strong extracted blueberries. Certainly not subtle. Flavor is sweet and bubbly graininess. A hint of tartness. Finishes dry and bitter in a very unpleasant way. Bland and one-dimensional. Feel is fizzly and very dry finish. An annoying beer. Could have worked if it was more subtle and had a lasting sweetness that blueberries usually have. The dry graininess does not work with the over-the-top blueberry. I will not have this again.

A: Carbonated like soda, with a nonexistent head. Pretty watery appearance.

S: Blueberry syrup.

T: Blueberry syrup, maybe a bit of really light wheat beer in there somewhere.

M: It has the mouthfeel of club soda. That is, fizzy and thin.

D: I'll take water instead, thanks.
