canned 2/27/22.

A: copper/amber like coloring.

S: wheaty with a slight hint of blueberry, but not a "fruity" blueberry. think more of like a toaster strudel or a blueberry pie.

T: tastes like wheat/blueberry. the aftertaste of this beer is mainly what caught my attention, as the aftertaste truly does feel like a blueberry pie. it catches up real fast after drinking, and it makes this beer quite enjoyable to drink mainly to experience that nice, crusty/blueberry aftertaste. the taste is not overbearing or overwhelmingly sweet, either.

M: smooth/creamy, but changes to more of a crisp feeling after drinking.

overall: i like this beer, and i see both sides to this. i can get why someone wouldn't like it but i can also see why someone, like myself would enjoy this. 4/5.

I see the poor ratings, but I also see the GABF Gold medal - no small thing - so I’m wondering if this beer is misunderstood.
And so it goes: a nose that’s too intense to just be fruit - think blueberry pancakes or jam - followed by fresh, bouncy, genuine blueberry on the palate.
Pacific Gem, with its black currant, is a clever hop choice - I can’t even parse it from the fruit addition - and low carb keeps it from tasting like soda.
Not as candy-sweet Lucky Charms as Leinenkugel Summer Wheat, but nearly as fun.

Does exactly what it sets out to do, superbly.

I thought it might be a blue color, would have increased my rating if it were. Taste was not what I was expecting, but I appreciate they tried to do something fun like this. Oh well, will keep trying their other beers.

Presentation: 12 oz. can with no dates. Served in a Samuel Adams pint glass.

Appearance: The one finger head stays around for a while and leaves behind some small, patchy lacing. It's a crystal clear gold color with a slight pink tint.

Smell: It has a faint, fruity blueberry aroma, with sweet, earthy wheat and grain notes in the background.

Taste: It's sweet, fruity and mostly blueberry with a hint of cream and vanilla. There's also a soft, grainy wheat flavor in the finish with a hint of hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: It's smooth and creamy at the beginning but ends with a crisp and refreshing high carbonation bite. It's a bit cloying because of the sweetness, but it's light bodied so that doesn't take away that much from the experience.

Overall: Even though the blueberry is very present in the nose and palate, it's not a one-dimensional beer in any way. There's interesting notes everywhere and even the texture is not boring at all; which is a surprising for a fairly light beer.

Brew Bus Brewing "You're My Boy, Blue!"
12 fl. oz. can without production codes or freshness dating.
$2.19 @ ABC Fine Wine & Spirits #139, Wildwood, FL

Look: Hazy amber body topped by a short lived head of white. Limited head retention and lacing.

Smell: Berry-like and sweetish, including blueberry but not limited to it.

Taste: Berry-like and sweetish backed by a firm golden malt base. It's sweet but not too sweet and a moderate bitterness balances it and brings it to a mainly dry finish. Brewed with both real blueberries and natural flavors it still somehow fails to truly display blueberry in its character.

Feel: Medium bodied and crisp.

Overall: An enjoyable and refreshing beer for summer.

Not what I expected when I bought this beer. This beer does not look the part of a blueberry ale. It looks like a pale ale or a hefeweizen. The taste is okay but that is not blowing me away either. I see what they are going for but this is not really my thing. Well hey at least they put real blueberries into this beer & not artificial blueberry flavor. As far as local brews go I prefer Two Henry's Blueberry Vanilla Wheat over this concoction. C'mon local breweries you can do better than this. Cheers! C

I somehow veered onto a Fruit(ed) Beer kick on The CANQuest (tm) in the past couple/few days & I want to CANtinue the trend while I CAN.

From the CAN: "Hop on for the ultimate craft beer experience!"; "Hop on for the Ultimate Craft Beer Experience on The Brew Bus! From brewery tours and tasting to corporate events and bachelor(ette) parties, the Brew Bus offers a once in a lifetime experience for everyone. Our tour guides are experienced and knowledgable, and our staff is friendly and accommodating. Hop On the Brew Bus Today!"; "You're My Boy, Blue! is our Blueberry Wheat Ale brewed with Pacific Gem hops and real blueberries. Once it hits your lips it's so good."

I was unsure about clarity and/or color with this one, but since it a Wheat Ale at base, cloudiness was not out of the question. Upon Crack!ing it opened, it revealed another brimful craft CAN & I celebrated with an inverted Glug. This resulted in just over a finger of dense, foamy, pinkish-white head with decent retention that slowly fell to wisps, leaving nice lacing behind. Color was a deeply-hazy/lightly-cloudy reddish-Amber (SRM = N/A). If the previous beer reminded me of buckwheat pancakes with blueberry syrup, this was straight up blueberry pancakes! Mmm. Blueberries, doughy wheat malt, mmm. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was likewise liquefied blueberry pancakes. This was no artificial nonsense, but instead, the taste of real fruit fermented into beer. It was lightly tart, not overly sweet, which made it all the more refreshing. Finish was semi-dry & left me with a pleasant blueberry flavor to CANtemplate.

A thanks to the champion of canned beers, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is sweet, blueberries. Taste is blueberries, but little of the sweetness in the aroma. Some wheat is present, dry at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

Well this isn't very good. It pours a dark peach / plum color. Aroma is a blue raspberry slush puppy. Flavor is artificial blueberry with a very light carbonated wheat flavor. Overall this tastes like someone dumped a blue raspberry slushy in an a blue moon.

Poured at 42°F from a 12oz can (canned on 17Jun15) into a nonic pint glass. Consumed on 30Jan16.
LOOK: Pours with a fingers worth of white foam that dissipates into a quarter fingers worth after 1 minute and 20 seconds. Peach amber in color with a high amount of cloudiness. Rising bubbles are both small and medium in size and moderate in quantity. Lacing is thin and subtle.
SMELL: Mild aromas of blueberries are evident up front. They are both tart and sweet, with the latter being slihtly stronger. Subtle wheat aromas and hints of wooden notes and lemony zest are also present.
TASTE: Mild blueberry flavors enter initially. Unlike the aroma, the flavors of the blueberries are an equal amount of sweet, bitter, and tart. Subtle wheat and lemony zest flavors immediately follow the blueberry flavors. Subtle wooden notes finish off the taste profile as wheat and lemony zest flavors persist, but blueberry flavors fade to subtle.
FEEL: Light-bodied and moderately carbonated. Goes down somewhat smooth. Finishes extremely crisp.
NOTE: Not a bad beer, but the flavors were too weak. This was sessionable and refreshing. Something I definitely wouldn't mind trying again.

Poured from a can into a Tervis cup. I'm going to rate this through my wife's eyes. I tasted it and didn't like it but it is a fruit and wheat beer, both styles which I don't like. My wife is a blueberry fan and she seemed to enjoy this offering. She's had better from Boston Beer Works and Portsmouth Brewery but she's had far more worse. If you like that style I'd say its worth a try.
