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...

This beer was an okay choice, it poured a goldish color and had a strong blueberry smell as expected with a little bit of malt. The taste is a bit heavy in my opinion and the blueberry flavor feels almost forced and too strong. It goes down smooth enough with a decently carbonated mouthfeel and a blueberry aftertaste.
