look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Crystal light yellow coloring with a wispy light and loose head.

The scent is primarily blueberry but a blueberry muffin aroma seems more dominant. A combination of the blueberry and grain must create this illusion.

The taste is a light blueberry flavor with an even lighter barley malt. The taste is incredibly soft and needs some amperage.

The feel is bubbly, airy and light, with mildly refreshing effervescence.

I'm one to score fruit beers relatively high as I tend to enjoy them but this simply fell short in most categories.

Pours a cloudy amber with a white head which disappears in seconds.

The smell is musty, blueberries, sweet.

The taste is grainy and slight blueberry.

The mouthfeel is light with quite high carbonation.

This isn't terrible but it's pretty average. Tastes like a lager with some blueberry thrown in.
