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.

Wachusett Blueberry is an acceptable beer overall, it has a very light feel, comparable to bud light with a just a hint of blueberry flavor but a huge hit of blueberry aroma. A good summer beer that is easy drinking but not anything fantastic, a would recommend beer.

Pours straw like light head. Noticeable blueberry wheat smell with a light blueberry taste with wheat aftertaste. Best ice cold not bad not great
