A bit of a shame to review this after having enjoyed it in a pint with fresh blueberries so many times previously, but those occasions never lend themselves to reviews, so here we are
A - a clear light golden of bubbles rising from the depths, solid white head held famously
S - big blueberry aroma, but it is quicly tempered by grains and some mild florals
T - big wheat grainy flavours quiclkly followed by blueberries that bring sweet and tart flavours .... take it or leave it, and i'll take it all day
M - light with big carbonation, dry and tart to finish
O - a small audience can appreciate this unfortunately, the best i can say is don't be so snobby that you shun fruit beers because there are gems all around (get this on tap if you can, even better!)

I had this a few years back as a summer seasonal, but now has made it into the regular Brewster's lineup.
Served in a nonic type glass with a handful of real blueberries floating on top. Yellow / light gold color, no real foam or head to speak of. Nice blueberry aroma to go with the slight wheat smell. There is a full blueberry flavor, but without being too sweet or syrupy. The mouthfeel average, but as expected for a light fruit beer. Crisp finish with no sticky aftertaste that I have found in some fruit beers.
A well balanced fruit beer.

Light pale gold colour in appearance, slight lacing, thin white head. Served with small frozen blueberries suspended in the glass. Crisp grain and sweet blueberries on the nose. Detergent smell from the glass somewhat detracted from the overall experience. The flavour was fairly one-dimensional, mild tartness from the wheat, subtle berry flavour from the fruit, but not overwhelming with the blueberries. The mouthfeel is decent for the style, medium body, crisp finish that rounds out through the aftertaste. Would make an okay selection for a hot summer day on the patio.
