look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz. longneck bottle in my mug glass.

Appearance: Simple golden colour that leaves very little lacing behind.

Smell: Wow can you say blueberries and sugar! kind of like a sunset wheat rip off but not as good.

Taste and Mouthfeel: It's good with the notes of blueberry and sugars with almost no traceable hops a little hint of wheat and malts barely keep this brew going ok but not a great beer, I'm kind of dissapointed with the Supples.

Macho dudes might not much care for the handful of blueberries dancing and bobbing in the streams of carbonation, but otherwise it presents as "beer" with a glossy gold and fading white head.
But honestly, the fact that a significant addition of "live" fruit is added to the glass might skew some of it properties....better and worse.
The nose is brightly blueberried. With a fleshly sweetness, high on sugar. Saltine and hay notes provide the backing.
Begins with a crispy dry crackery maltiness with notions of haybales. Blueberries add their telltale influence, but only in a supporting role. Well, not really...they are certainly the feature here, but they are moderated well. Fleshy fruit is deemphasized, as this stays dry, and grows lightly bready. Hops hit with stalks and buds, and are effective if not noteworthy.
Pale and crisp in the mouth. A fruit beer guzzler that is wholly inoffensive (except for possibly the marooned fruit within the glass). This is an olive branch to the macro crowd (or at least those acceptive towards fruit floating in their glass of yellow beer). But being a sucker for blueberries, I can't say that I didn't enjoy drinking/slamming this.
It's also a near dead-ringer for Sweetwater Blue, if perhaps a lighter on the spun-sugar.

Poured with a large off white head which lasted almost the whole beer. Golden brown to carmal color in glass.

Fruity aroma, I thought it had a slight smokey smell.

very sweet taste,can really taste the blueberries.very easy to drink. Very slight bitter after taste but dosn't hang around.

good beer if you are into fruit beers. easy to drink. Could drink two or three of these with no problem.
