The appearance is very light straw and appealing. The head was bright white and clung to the glass as it was finished. There was a definite sourness vaguely reminiscent of a Berliner Weiss. In fact, the beer's title confuses me a bit because it is much closer to a wit than a blonde.
The nose was all wheat and some real blueberry. I couldn't discern any hop character at all.
The berry is in the nose and the flavor but never overpowers and did not contribute any false sweetness. A very drinkable and refreshing fruit beer that I would only change by "upping" the carbonation a bit.

Bottle: Poured a medium amber color ale with a nice foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of sweet malt with some traces of honey. Taste is mostly dominated by some light caramel malt with traces of honey without being excessively sweet. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Not the most complex beer out there for sure but no major flaw either.

Light golden with a small white head. Malty and honey like in the aroma with a bit of fruitness as well (from the blueberries). The taste is malty up front with that fruitiness returning in the middle, and a tiny hop bite in the dry finish. This is really not very fruity or honey-like. But the subtle flavors that the blueberries and honey lend to this brew are very nice. The mouthfeel is light bodied and refreshing, and the drinkability is very, very good!
