Pint can picked up at Angelis. Extremely light in color, almost watery with bite of white foam. Not a ton of aroma, most notably is the coriander with hints of citrus. Taste is quite light and refreshing. Wheat is nice and the flavors meld nicely. Very smooth with moderate carbonation. Light in the bitterness. An easy drinker with some nice flavors. Good summer beer

I picked up a can of Griffin Claw's Mr. Blue Sky last week for $2.09 at The Lager Mill. I had this a sample of this at Griffin Claw and I thought I would give it another try, so lets see how it goes. 2015 Vintage. Poured from a tall 16oz can into a imperial pint glass.

A- The can looks nice, it's got a nice design to it and it's just a little eye catching. It pouted a hazy yellow color that took on more of golden color when held to the light with a fingers and half worth of white head that died down to a thin ring that didn't leave any lacing behind. This was a nice looking beer, but I wish it had some lacing.

S- The aroma starts off with a lower amount of medium sweetness with the malts being the first to show up and it imparts a wheat, white bread and slightly grainy aroma with some doughy yeast showing up in the background. Towards the end I get a slight grapefruit rind aroma with just a slight bit of spices. This beer had a nice aroma, but it was a little bland.

T- The taste seems to be pretty similar to the aroma and it starts off with a lower amount of medium sweetness with the malts still being the first to show up and they impart the same aspects with the white bread flavors seeming to stick out the most and there's still some doughy yeast showing up in the background. Up next comes a very light amount of spices with some citrus rind flavors showing up in the background. On the finish there's a no bitterness with a very bready aftertaste. This was a nice tasting beer, but I thought the flavor was a little bland.

M- Smooth, pretty clean, crisp, on the thicker side of being light bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. This beer had a nice mouthfeel that worked well with it.

Overall I thought this was a nice beer and a nice example of the style, I was expecting more flavors and aromas from this beer, but it's pretty clear that Griffin Claw decided to take a light approach when it came to this beer and once I understood that it wasn't that bad at all. This beer had nice drinkability, it was smooth, pretty clean, crisp, not too filling and the taste did a decent job of holding my attention, I could drink a couple of these, but after that I would start to get bored with it. What I like the most about this beer was the drinkability, it was an easy drinking beer. What I liked the least about this beer was that the coriander and grapefruit peels didn't stick out more. I might buy this beer again if it's still around in the summer. I can't say I would recommend it, but if you like light wheat beers it might be worth a try. All in all I like this beer, but I don't love it, it took me a little bit to get used to the lightness, but once I did I liked it a little more. It's not a favorite Griffin Claw beer and it's a pretty average for the style. this was a solid beer, keep it up.

My original review. Short Review. This was a nice easy drinking beer, it was very light and clean tasting, but I wish more wheat flavors came through and in the end that made it a little bland. I don't feel like this one needs to be canned.

Was in the middle of a review. When I realized this beer simply wasn't worth one. Oh well.
