Medium amber pour with a 1 finger, wispy off white head. Aroma is cereal, blueberry, citrus, and under ripe berry tartness. Flavor is citrus, toast and pie spice up front, then some cereal, some blueberry, and a little spicy, floral and citrus hops. Light body with a light to medium, blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation. Decent overall, pretty well balance between malt, yeast, fruit and hop components, there just isn’t enough depth or heft to it. I do like the way the flavor presents itself in the first couple of seconds, but it falls pretty flat after that.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount into a wine glass. Amber and clear appearance with a beige head. Very mild aroma of toasted grains, wheat malts and light fruity blueberry notes. Similar flavor, fruity, bready and lightly tart, somewhat quenching at first. Light, thin body with average carbonation. Pretty dull for a fresher bottle (EB 7-22-14). Kind of hard to drink, pretty bad, border line drain pour towards the end, for someone who rarely ever does that. I could barely finish it, gross.

ChainGangGuy (4368) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 26, 2014
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Enjoy By: JUL092014.

Appearance: Pours a clear, light amber-toned body with a small, near white head.

Smell: Mild, oddly joined notes smelling of blueberry, toasted grain with a thin edge of caramel.

Taste: Vaguely bready, mealy maltiness, not really characteristic of wheat. Light, ’off’ honeyish sweetness. Low blueberry flavor. Faint hops, very light bitterness. Drying, lightly fruitiness. This one just doesn’t come together AT ALL.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Kinda Bleh.

gnoff (7782) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2014
Draught at Boulder Beer Tap House - DIA, on April 3, 2014.
Clear golden to amber color, off-white to yellow head. Fresh, berry, light malty taste. Blueberry, some malt aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, low to very low bitterness. Sweet, berry scent.
Stated to be 5.2% ABV and 12 IBU, seasonal MArch-July.

jbuskirk (436) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Didn’t do it for me. The sweetness of wheat malt and the sweetness of the blueberries clashed rather than working together. Not absolutely awful but far from being enjoyable.

deyholla (6613) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 28, 2013
On tap at the Denver airport. Pours a near clear deep amber gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice combination of slightly tart blueberries and wheat. Flavor has sweeter blueberries throughout with wheat and a bit of biscuit.
