I was hesitant to try this beer out. I'm not much for blueberry but this turned out to be pretty good. The smell of blueberries was much more potent than the flavor. I wouldn't mind having a few more of these.

A really refreshing, nice beer. The taste brings notes of blueberry, finished with wheat and malt. It's got a great smell to it too, and while there's little to no lacing the body is very full. The look isn't as great as expected but this is still highly recommended.

The slightly hazy pale yellow beer is served in a Shaker Pint glass with a 1/4" white head that visibly recedes to leava a small ring around the glass with no lacing. At first sipping creates small spots of lacing that slide backdown to the liquid but by the middle of the glass there's almost nothing.

The aromas include some noticeable blueberry with a bit of the wheat and malt in the background.

The flavors are much as expected from the nose with the blueberry up front, backed up by the grains. There's a just noticeable bit of sweetness from the malt and no sign of hops.

The mouthfeel is light bodied and slightly creamy with the moderate, persistent carbonation. The finish begins as all the flavors fade pretty much together, leaving just a final hint of blueberry to close the show.

A nicely drinkable beer that seems well designed for summer drinking. It's light, slightly fruity and goes down easily. Seems well suited for a party on the porch on a pleasant summer evening.

Decent beer. Good deep color, but not as cloudy as I'm used to with a wheat beer. Slight hint of blueberry on the taste, but not overpowering; a slight bit of citrus in there as well.

The appearance was a slightly clear golden colored body with a half finger white foamy head that quickly dissipates and leaves a slight lacing around the sides of the glass. The smell has strong notes of blueberry up front, slight wheaty/bready background. The taste is pretty much the same, a combined blueberrywheat aftertaste, sticky sweet finish. The palate is light, sessionable, carbonation is good for a blueberry beer and is good for me. Overall, this is a good session blueberry beer.

A slight taste of blueberry, but not overpowering. It was very refreshing and had a good feel. I could see drinking this poolside on a hot day.
