Press a brilliant golden straw with a foamy white head that dissipates somewhat quickly.

Real blueberries dominate the aroma, with lightly bready malt underlying.

Flavor is more cracker-malt dominant, refreshing, with blueberry sweetness appearing briefly, and finishing slightly tart/fruity. A beer with fruit, rather than vice versa.

Body is fairly light, with moderate to a touch high carbonation. It's crisp.

Better than most fruit beers, in that it still tastes like a decent brew. Good aroma.

Poured a clear and effervescent medium gold with a fizzy white head. The head has minimal retention but does leave a modicum of lacing. There is a pronounced blueberry aroma with a slight hint of the wheat beer base. The taste follows closely with distinct blueberry notes and mild wheat beer characteristics. On the plus side, the blueberries aren't overwhelming or cloying. There is a slight carbonation feel but it doesn't go too far towards fizzy. Not a bad beer and if you like fruit-based flavors in your beer this might be right up your alley. I was hoping for more wheat beer flavors than this provided.
