Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a nice looking purple/amber color with a good transparency about it. A small rim of white semi-foamy head sat there and slid with the sips. The pour itself seemed more of a pink to amber color.
The aroma leaned towards the sweet side of the blueberries initially but only brings in a touch of tart character. The tart side never fully embraces any sort of balance. Subtle freshly cut grass slides in underneath.
The flavor copies the aroma quite well, definitely the sweet side again. Blueberry sweet aftertaste, some stickiness.
The mouthfeel was almost medium bodied but sat just a touch under with an enjoyable sessionability. Good carbonation, some stickiness but nothing cloying. Fairly smooth blueberry fleshy finish.
Overall, pretty easy drinking blueberry ale, no frills and doesn't seem like any wheat ever makes any sort of play in this one, though the can says there is some. No worries, I'd still have again. And if I had an extra one, I wouldn't mind making a black 'n tan out of this.

Pour is a reddish color. Nice, silky head. The fun of this wheat ale is watching the blue balls (actual blueberries) rising and falling in your glass, interacting with carbonation. The blueberries deliver subtle sweetness which is a plus in the fruit beer genre, but the taste overall is fairly bland. Still, if you've got to get blue balls, this beer is the much less painful route.
