2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big bomber from 3 sons. Pour is somewhat hefe but there is very little haze, almost clear but not. Smell is perhaps a little fruity but moreso hefe like. Fairly mild hefe beer flavors make this easy to drink. But still very little if any blueberry in there. Probably would easily pass as a hefe. Some creamy CO2 in there. Now after the session is almost over I think I get a hint of blueberry in the background. Not bad overall. Hides the alky content rather well for a 5.5+%.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Blah. A bland and boring fruit beer. Aroma was pretty weak. A slight fruitiness, but that’s about it. Pour was a nice cloudy medium gold with lots of bubbles and a tiny white ring for a head. Taste was very bland. No wheat flavor, hardly any blueberry. Tastes like sweet, heavily carbonated sugar water with a slight beery aftertaste. It is light and refreshing, though, and would be a good lawnmower beer.

Bomber. I think it is old. Blueberry notes are very faded, especially in the aroma. Honestely, this was kinda like a blue moon, replace the orange peel with blueberries. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
THOUGHTS: A summer beer on a cold night. Not bad. At first I thought it might be getting slightly skunked, just from sitting for six month, but there was just a hint of it there, but I think it was just a bit of the blueberry I was smelling, because it went away as it warmed. It was a fairly simple wheat beer with light notes of blueberry. It would probably be much more enjoyable in the summer.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured an ever so slightly hazy, light orange with an average to large, off-white head that mostly diminished, but left excellent lacing. The aroma had wheat, light to moderate yeast and light blueberry. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and ever so slightly sour; while the finish was moderately sweet, light to moderately sour and lightly acidic with an average duration. There was wheat, light blueberry, that was sweet as opposed to tart, and then blue berries that were more tart in the finish. The light to medium body was slightly syrupy with very tingly carbonation that soften a bit as time goes by and a slightly astringent finish.

Most fruit beers are complete garbage. While not total garbage this beer still isn’t stellar. The good: not boozy, not syrupy, and it doesn’t stink. The bad: stewed fruit, weak malt, doesn’t taste fresh. Pours amber brown in color. Nose is slightly funky with tart fruit. Decent palate.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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 it’s kind of indistinct and not all that compelling. A touch of citrus on the finish but the basic story is that it’s an odd combination of bad and boring.
