This is Ellicottville's lowest rated beer? Impossible! It is my personal favorite. If you don't like fruit beer then don't bother but if you want something different it is a must.

Get it on tap at one of their locations and they through in FRESH BLUEBERRIES into your drink! It makes for a nice addition.

Get this on tap at the bar...they put blueberries in it! Makes it look exceptional. The smell and taste are nearly perfect. Nice real genuine blueberry taste and aroma. Nice wheaty backbone. Not too malty. I wish this was distributed over a much larger area. I think it could soar.

Excellent version of a fruit beer. Good nose, good full mouth feel.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz. bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: It forms a thin white head that quickly fades leaving just a few small bubbles on top. The body has a light golden color with very good clarity. (Apparently this is a filtered wheat beer.)

Smell: The aroma has a big blueberry nose up front with mild leafy hops and then some light wheat notes in the background.

Taste/Mouth feel: The blueberry, which is up front in the aroma, is more mellow or complementary in the flavor. The sweet/tart blueberry flavor is balanced well with spicy, almost peppery hop flavor and some tangy wheat flavor notes as well. Its body has a very drinkable light to medium body with a nice active carbonation and a slow finishing tart to bitter fading aftertaste.

Notes: I really enjoyed balance on this beer. I loved that the blueberry that was big and bold in the aroma but didn't overpower the flavor of the beer or get lost altogether. Well done!!!

Pours a light golden color with a nice white head that is about one finger. The smell is a blueberries, it isn't over the top blueberry though. There is also some wheat in there. The taste is of blueberries over a nice malt taste. The mouthfeel is of moderate carbonation. Overall this is a very drinkable beer, crisp and refreshing, you could have a number of these.

Appearance- It is a nice straw yellow color. There are a lot of bubbles in the body and that forms a lot of head and lace.

Smell- You can smell the berries right away. It has little complex fruity smell past the initial berry blast as well.

Taste- There is more to this beer than the berries. You can still taste the malt and some very mild hops.

Mouthfeel- I a lot of fizz bite but for the most part light.

Drinkability- Very refreshing and easy to drink.

A refreshing crisp light wheat beer with a perfect hint of blueberry without the fake artificial blueberry taste. Pours a bit golden with a nice white head. Had at dinosaur BBQ served with a few fresh blueberries. Very refreshing wheat beer.
