3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Pours deep amber into a Sam glass. White head with good retention recedes leaving trailing sheets. Bread and cereal aromas. Sour blueberry muffin upfront turning to bitter seeds in the lasting finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
big frothy head over an amber, translucent apple juice body. Aroma of honey and flowers. Flavor is round, malty, and slightly sweet, slightly caramel. Palate is full at first, then just waters away and leaves a little sweetness on the tongue. Bottle form Woody’s Smokes and Brews, Nashville.
