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.

Good refreshing beer.

Looks like a clear brown ale

Smells like blueberry pancakes or muffins

Tastes nothing like blueberry especially for having such a strong smell. Semi sweet bread taste so they go together well.

Feel is really carbonated. Very overpowering.

Overall a good beer but only something to enjoy sparatically.

Wheat beer infused with blueberries. Aroma reminds me of blueberry pancakes. Don’t get any flavor of it, though, which is weird. You think if you smell it you’d taste it as well. Structured like normal wheat beer.

Loved this! Waited all summer to try and it finally got to! I think it is gone now! Darn it! Smooth lite not too fruity! VERY GOOD!

This was an OK wheat beer. The blueberries did come through, but were not particularly magical for me.

A golden color. Lots of suspended particles. Little to no head.
Nice blueberry smell followed by wheat funk reminiscent of a a fresh hair perm.
Not as much blueberry in the taste, but some pleasant wheat funk and maltiness.
Fairly light body with some residual sweetness.
