Tap at Pony. Amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is distinctly dirty with a soft fruity nose. A touch of blueberry but itís kind of indistinct and not all that compelling. A touch of citrus on the finish but the basic story is that itís an odd combination of bad and boring.

22oz bottle 10/16/10 (Binnyís Downers Grove)-48į in Flute-Pours a slightly hazy light copperish orange with a small white ring for a head. Aroma of blueberry, sweetness, and wheat. Taste of the same with a bit of tartness, This light bodied brew is nothing to write home about but a decent wheat brew.

On Tap at the Boulder Beer Bar, Denver International Airport 13/09/2010 Fruit and some hop aroma. Amber coloured a little sweet on the palate and fruity blueberry with a hint of dryness in a lasting malt finish.

Golden orange body. White head. Like a poor, metallic tasting pale with hints of blueberry skin. Weird zesty finish. Not ideal or appetizing.

Beaver (1344) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours a hazy light copper orange with a smallish white head that quickly diminishes to a thin collar that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is wheaty malts and astringent blueberries.

The flavor is sweet blueberries with some tart notes with some wheaty malt. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and very watery.

Overall, everything about this is very subdued. Itís not really offensive, but not very good either.

[Tap] Pours an amber color with an odd blue tint to it. Small white head. Aroma of light malts and dust. A little bit of blueberry in the aroma as well. The taste is mild blueberry, other light fruits, bread and grains. Not as sweet as expected. Average carbonation and mouthfeel. Mild, restrained and drinkable.

I bought this at the same time I bought a DFH Bitches Brew, so it was a Miles Davis themed trip I suppose...Anyway, I liked this more than I thought I would. Good use of fruit - not overbearing, but well balanced and tasty. I would actually buy this again.

Bomber from VBS. Had this last night, so Iím doing it from memory. Pours a translucent golden with a very foamy white head. Faint notes of blueberry, but pretty standard wheat beer aroma. If I concentrated really hard, I could notice some sweetness that could possibly be attributed to the blueberries. Reminds me a little too much of Leinenkugel. Iím disappointed at the lack of blueberries in this beer. "Kinda Blue" is right.

17thfloor (2434) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bomber. Pours a glowing robust orange amber with a smaller sudsy white sticky head. Aroma of cereal, fruity pebbles, touch of hops, playdough. Flavor is a bit cleaner than the aroma lets on, smoother cereal, faintly sharp tartness, drinkable, almost blue moon-like, but not nearly as cloying, a bit more crisp. The blueberry taste is the artificial hard candy kind which isnít terrible, just doesnít seem real. Well attenuated, crisp lively fizzy carbonation that really helps the flavor out in a much needed way.
