Pours golden without much noticeable carbonation. The white head doesn't last very long. Minimal lacing sticks.

The smell is of a field of fresh blueberries.

The taste of blueberries is not as strong as in the nose. This works well, because the balancing malt gives it a blueberry muffin character. The blueberry taste leans much more towards "real" than "artificial", which is certainly a plus, resulting in a higher bump in the score. Finish is long - much longer than usual for the style. I was tasting blueberry a long while after finishing the one beer.

Another bubble or two wouldn't hurt, but I'm far from complaining and wouldn't want them to tinker with a very good brew, and it is certainly "refreshing" enough, and the flavor sure does linger in a pleasant way!

Overall, this is a very well-made brew. Nice to see a fruit beer that tastes like the fruit, and has a bready malt balance giving it added character. Very good for the style. If you are in the mood for blueberries and beer, I certainly recommend it!

Now that I am 1.5 hours north of the brewery, I am regretting not picking this up in bottles...especially at $16/4pk of 25oz bottles. Will definitely be stopping on the way home to pick some up....I love blueberries and on this side of a wild ale, this beer showcases them quite nicely.

Also known as Blueberry Train Wheat Ale. Clean taste, not cloying. Definite blueberry taste but not overpowering at all with fruit. Cloudy appearance.
