3.68/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Hazy medium yellow brown with a large, dense, quite persistent white head, lots of scattered, patchy lacing, and slight carbonation.

Aroma: The blueberry aroma is very prominent upfront, and has a very natural aroma, not artificial at all. The malt presence is quite understated, with understated herbal hops. Note that the aroma is in no way like that of a "malternative".

Taste: Opens with a punch of fermented blueberry, followed by lightly toasted malt, and bready yeast. As the taste progresses, The blueberry and the malt dance gracefully together, suggesting unsweetened blueberry jam on lightly toasted rustic bread. Blueberry and mild herbal hops dominate the finish.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and full, with delicate carbonation, a bit dry.

Drinkability/notes: Very nicely done, would be a very pleasant choice for a warm summer evening.

Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce long neck bottle with raised lettering and a pop-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden color with a nice white head. The carbonation is really impressive. Although the head receeds too quickly, the incredible carbonation keeps things in play and there is lacing all the way down.

Smell: Only sweet blueberries.

Taste: A fruity/citrusy blueberry blend.

Mouthfeel: Watery and light, awesome and perfect carbonation.

I love this beer. It's different, delicious, and satisfying. I could drink this beer all day and be happy. I love the carbonation feel in my mouth. This beer is good for any occasion whether it be mowing or partying.
