A little too sweet for me on this one. The look is pale golden, smell is very sweet and tart, taste is better than I had imagined. A decent beer but nothing I'd drink again unless it was free.

The beer comes in a pale gold color.

The aroma offers sweet blueberry, grains, sugary sweetness, a biscuity malt.

The flavor hits of blueberry candy up front, but flies away quite quickly. Hints of honey, biscuity malt, onto a light hop bitterness. The beer is generally quite watery with light blueberry flavors up front.

Gold in color with a light haze from tiny suspended sediment. There's a fingernail of dull white around part of the top and half of the middle. The aroma is faint blueberries and nothing else. The flavor is actually fairly restrained in terms of blueberry intensity. I can actually pick out pale wheat in the mix and I find that appealing. The mouth is moderately carbonated and dry.

I had this beer once in the summer and can't remember if it was any good, so I'm trying it again.

SweetWater Blue Wheat Ale

This beer has a great appearance to it. Slightly hazy with a golden tint. Noticeable carbonation. Great head, reduces while drinking. Very little lacing left behind.

The smell is a great quality this beer has. Smells like tart blueberries. Almost too much because the taste isn't very apparent.

Almost not able to classify as a fruit beer as the taste of blueberries is very subtle in this brew. Very drinkable wheat beer with a touch of the smell you get.

I really enjoy the feel of this beer. Very drinkable, perfect amount of carbonation.

Overall, the taste could be improved to be a great beer. For me, it's good. Definitely something I'll buy next summer instead of macrobrews I had this year.
