6 pack of 12 oz bottles purchased from the brewery. No age statement on the bottles or the packaging as far as I could tell.

L: Pours light gold with a quarter-inch of white head.

S: Blueberries...duh. Nothing else really going on but it's a pleasant smell nonetheless.

T: Malt sweetness with blueberry in the finish. Again pretty simple, not getting the complexities typical of a wheat beer which is a bit of a bummer. However the blueberry taste is very nice, it's not overpowering and it doesn't taste artificial.

F: Light body with a good amount of carbonation. Crisp, dry finish that offsets the blueberry sweetness.

O: Not really what I look for in a wheat beer but this is a well made, light and refreshing blueberry beer. I could see someone who is typically not a beer fan enjoying this. Try it on tap at the brewery where it's served with fresh blueberries.

Thin bodied, lacks the cloudiness I expected from a wheat beer. Not over powered by the blueberry flavor. Served with blueberries in the glass at the brewery, so that's cool. I usually hate fruit beers, but this one isn't bad.

ELLICOTTVILLE BLUEBERRY WHEAT 10/18/15

Purchased a bottle in a mixed six while on vacation in NY state, because it's not available in my state and my wife likes blueberry flavored anything. I split it with her and ended up drinking almost all of it when she passed after the first sip.

Bottled August 5th 2015. Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a plastic cup (on travel and forgot glass).

a: Clear dark gold/amber with a finger and a half thick white head which receded to thick surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Virtually none, maybe slight light fruit.

t: Thick bready malt with a mild hop bite and a light blueberry aftertaste.

m: Medium great body and carbonation tingle.

o: A "meaty" wheat beer in which the tasty malt dominates the blueberry notes. May not satisfy those looking for a lot of fruit flavor (wife disliked it), but a quality and satisfying harvest grain brew.
