I have taken notice that most beeradvocates don't take kindly to sweet beers. You can taste the blueberry after every sip.

Filtered wheat....not much to look at.
Huge real berry nose
Touch of light cereal grains, and real blueberry jam flavor
Lighter mouthfeel....pretty standard session feel
Very surprised by this beer. Not sickeningly sweet. No fake candy flavor. Great rendition of a fruit beer

Hello BeerAdvocates... Welcome to my review of Wachusett Blueberry Ale. My first impression of this beer was obviously the bottle design. Very simple with a picture of blueberries seemingly still on the branch. And a slogan "The aroma is balanced by a subtle blueberry flavor." I have to say.. The description fits. The aroma is very intense but doesn't come off as artificial, which I love. The look of the beer is extremely light , identical to bud light , with virtually no head , if one does poke up it is thin and bright white . The beer goes down smooth, too smoth. I feel like I'm drinking water . Despite the lack of flavor in the start, Wachusett successfully accomplishes their subtle finish which I have to admit is very nice. Overall a "meh" beer.

Tried a bottle of it on a hot day, very light and very subtle blueberry flavor, I thought it was good.
