Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

A nice brass to very light bronze colored body, super crystal clear and nice thin rising carbonation. Head is only about a finger and a fluffy consistency, off white in color and looks ok otherwise.

A real nice fruit character, very noticeable blueberry but also some off putting aromas. A bit of bile, acrid grain senses, but for the most part passable it seems.

A very surprising light palate and much more tolerable and enjoyable than the nose would indicate. Hints of light crisp malt, and a quick carbonation feeling on the finish with tight bubbles on the tip of the tongue. Nice fruit blueberry, doesn't come off cloying, sickly sweet, syrupy, or horrifically tart either. Good clean finish with some almost pils like crisp dry character, but not much chewy wheat backbone.

Overall though pretty tasty for a fruit brew.
