A- Pale straw color. One finger head.

S- Grainy, grassy, and (yes) blueberries. Sweet as well. Fruit smell is the difference maker from this just smelling like an American lager.

T- Sweet, tart blueberries, with a grainy, malty backbone. Just like a blueberry pancake! Not bitter. Very clean tasting.

M- Light to Medium mouthfeel; not too dry. Initial sip is watery. It's easy to drink for sure, but just a little too much carbination is my only complaint.

*Overall this is a nice beer that is easy on the drinking and pleasant in taste. This is good with a few fresh or frozen blueberries to enhance the flavor. They also look cool and they move up and down in the glass.
