This is a great summer beer for me. It smells just like the cereal Fruity Pebbles to me; and it tastes very similar. The fruity aroma carries through to the taste and is a very easy beer to drink.

From a 12oz bottle marked Nov 13 2017. Pours a light cloudy orange with a finger of white head. Strong blueberry smell, as soon as I opened the bottle. Slick feel. Taste is wheat and blueberries. A bit artificial somehow. I could see this being decent outdoors on a hot day, but it's not really a sipping beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours a murky orange gold color with a large white head. The aroma is full of fruit, spice and some caramel. The taste is wheat with some fruit nicely blended in.

Good beer, if you're into blueberries. Refreshing especially in summer.
