This one is a clear dark yellow-gold. It forms an off-white head that initially rises to a strong two fingers in height and leaves a thick foam when it recedes. The head that remains drops a good amount of sticky lacing in patches all the way down.
Blueberry is strong off the nose, pouring out of the bottle before I empty it into my glass. That said, for as strong as the blueberry is I have no problem picking out the crackery dry malts that lay down a firm backbone. The blueberry is fresh and there's just enough of a light herbal hops note to this beer to add an element without distracting.
This is one of the better fruit beers out there as far as how flavorful it is, how natural it is, and how all of the different notes integrate together. The blueberry, dry malts and light hops work very nicely. Malts are very wheat-like. I have to give an edge to the aroma only because I get just a hint of graininess coming underneath into the finish.
This is a light ale, and the body is appropriate for the style. It's also pretty smooth. There's something about how the play between the crispness and the herbal dryness, both fine in themselves, seems a little funny to me. I think it may be that they both linger into the finish and, while either by itself is good, there's an interesting sort of clash happening ever so slightly.

Pours into glass with a foamy head. Clear and light straw color. Taste is light and fruity, with hint of honey and blueberry. Not overwhelmingly sweet. Mouthfeel is not terribly bubbly.
One of my favorite beers.

First time trying this beer, although it's been around the area for a while in NE Ohio.

Tastes more like an ale to me, good body to the beer and very tasty. The blueberry stays with during the entire glass.

The only other "fruity" beers I've had were infused with lemonade, I definitely prefer this beer over those.

I loved it and will purchase again for sure.

12 oz bottle, with some sort of dating on the neck of the bottle (smudged, and couldn't read it)

Pours lightly hazed, lighter amber, minor tiny bubble head, film left behind and leaves some.
decent looking low sheeting

Sweet and fruity nose

Same thing happening on the taste buds, sweet and fruity, with blueberries and honey coming to mind...not my kind of thing, but I did not this to be over the top too sweet. Good beginner beer perhaps on or a very hot day

Pours clear, gold in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is blueberries, cereal and toasted malt. Light bodied, medium carbonation and sweet. Makes for a fairly standard blueberry ale. Tasty and sessionable, but also a beer I feel I have had several times from several breweries.

So . . . Tasty ! Why did I wait this long to try this beer. Smells fantastic and is incredibly refreshing. Blueberries work so well here . . . You just have to try it. Well done Fat Heads.
