Popping the top to this brew it has a smoky type smell for reasons unknown as it is a wheat beer with blueberry. Pouring into my SAPP I get a brew with a bright golden color and a thin foamy white head. On the taste this brew has a spicy smoky flavor more than a sweet blueberry taste. Mouthfeel is good and the aftertaste is consistent with the upfront flavor. Nothing too spectacular here. Won't seek this one out but would drink it if offered one.

Rich blueberry aroma, though lacking flavor

Deep golden hue filtered blueberry ale, not a fan of synthetic fruit beer this is one of those generic golden ales with fake blueberry flavor in the finish. Light speckled head leaves a fine trail of lacing. Aroma has that fruity pebbles blueberry manufactured food additive nose. Flavor is slightly tart with blueberry/citrus notes and even earthy dry grains. Mouthfeel is light bodied meant to be consumed in the warm weather, this beer has probably found it's audience already, sorry I can't do this regularly.

My guilty pleasure beer... Blueberries are my favorite fruit so this is my go-to beer when I'm hungover, drinking early in the morning for some reason, or need to switch from high ABV beers to something more sessionable.
