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.

12 oz bottle. Aroma is very fruity--pineapple especially. Hazy gold color, little head, moderate lacing. Taste is almost as fruity as the aroma--pineapple, lemon, wheaty taste. Medium-bodied. Pretty decent wheat beer.

This beer is exceptional. This is hands down the best beer I have ever had. It provides a delicious, malty sweetness and a powerful citrusy aftertaste. This beer is not bitter at all so if you're looking for that this isn't the beer for you but if you want something sweet and delicious, this is the beer for you.

You'll hear the term "Fruity Pebbles" a lot with this beer. If the thought of a beer having a Fruity Pebbles-like aftertaste is appealing to you, try this beer! You'll probably like it! If that same thought appalls you, steer clear of this one. Maybe there is a vegan beer that might be better suited for you! :)
