A - Pours a very clear lighter amber that has a slight purplish hue with a half finger white head with better than average head retention. Very nice looking beer

S - Sweet malts with a light blueberry aroma. Very nice and what you would expect fom a blueberry beer. Its not an overpowering blueberry but it is present.

T- Pleasant blueberry taste upfront quickly fading to the malts of the beer. The malts have a nice roasted and caramel taste to them as well. The blueberry is well done. Not overpowering and not too sweet.

M - A medium bodied beer that is slick feeling in the mouth. Carbonation felt a little on the low side

O - Great fruit beer for the summer. I'll be keeping this one around. Most of the time I can only handle one fruit beer due to their extreme sweetness, but this isn't the case with the Blueberry Blonde. I could have multiples and not grow tired of it. Nicely done.

Free sample courtesy of Aaron, served in a tulip shaped taster glass.

Pale and bright straw color, super clear. Thin layer of foam on the surface that isn't substantial. Flecks of random spotty lace in the glass.

Aroma is weak, wet grains and artificial blueberry.

Taste is similar, an insipid melange of artificial blueberry flavoring and a lifeless "wheat beer" underneath. Dull and watery feel with little redeeming value, and little in the way of authentic fruit flavor or aroma. This is an unfortunate beer, not very well put together, and weak in terms of flavor. Even if this is tailored to non-beer drinkers, it doesn't make much of an impression. Skip it.
