12 Oz Bottle poured into glass
Look - mostly clear.. very pale, straw color. Little head of foam fades quickly no lacing
Smell - wheat and blueberries. Doesn't smell too fake or anything.
Taste - strong blueberry flavor with back notes of wheat and some malt. Some sweetness but not overdone. Medium-high carbonation..extremely drinkable.

Overall a good blueberry beer for sure. I would choose this over Seadog Blueberry.
Grade is B

DATE: October 7, 2017... OCCASION: Big Blue day (Independence soccer, PSU wins) deserves a blue(berry) beer... GLASSWARE: Lindemans flute... explodes into the glass with a massive array of bubbles, speeding upward to a sizzling white foamy head... the body is watery yellow and mostly transparent... the aroma is blueberry, of course, light wine tannins, cracker malts and lemon zest make for a mixed bag... mouthfeel is soft, fizzy, dry at its finish, with a light body that begs to be drained... the finish also burns with some residual that leaves the experience lacking... the blueberry is soft, melded with malts to create a slightly "dirty," earthy texture... the herbal, vegetable influence detracts from the experience... not really an enjoyable beer, but it is a bit refreshing... could see where the Smirnoff drinkers might fancy this one...
