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

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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. It’s 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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bomber from VBS. Had this last night, so I’m 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. I’m disappointed at the lack of blueberries in this beer. "Kinda Blue" is right.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 isn’t terrible, just doesn’t seem real. Well attenuated, crisp lively fizzy carbonation that really helps the flavor out in a much needed way.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear copper with a nice sudsy off-white head. The aroma has musty marshmallow and light wheat - not a bit aroma at all. Medium / light body that’s crisp and grainy with underscored carbonation. The flavor starts with clean american wheat malt, spice, light hoppiness and only a hint of blueberries. The finish has a bit more blueberry taste and spiciness that seems much more phenolic than hoppy.
