On tap. Pours a clear pale amber color with a finger of white head. Aroma of faint blueberry and wheat. Taste is pretty much similar to the nose. Malty, wheat, and light notes of blueberry.

Pours amber, with nose of dirty socks and vomit, followed by a hint of blueberries. Taste is much better than the nose. Lots of honey and wheat with a t ad of blueberries on the finish.

Sample at brewfest. Nice beer, good blueberry flavor on this. Very sweet berries, refreshing, much better than I expected.

From tasting notes. Bottle. Pours light orange with a medium, white head. Bready aroma with light blueberry notes. Light, slightly tart blueberry flavors with bread notes and a hint of citric hops.

Bottle, enjoy by Jun 27 2011, enjoyed here in mid-February 2013, another Monster Beverage Special! Take this one with a grain of salt, then, or an aging experiment, with the promise of a re-rate. Nose isn’t stale, berries are quite faint (earning the ’kinda’ title?). Fizzy amber-golden gradient body with a short off-white head. Watery light body with a minimum of malt present, dash of blueberry in seeming syrup form, some sort of spice seeping in from the normal wheat? No bitterness, sweetness is definitely under control, hint of process but no metal or anything like that. Plain and uninspired, but the idea is a good one and end product is fine even eighteen months overdue.

Offputting aroma with a dirty golden color. Active head lead to carbonated feel. Initial flavor is pleasant with a sweet finish. Minimal blueberry flavor is disappointing although fitting of "kinda".

Very average. Not much blueberry aroma or flavor. Not a bad beer, just not much that’s noteworthy.

1/7/13. 12oz bottle. JBVatkeens is a douche. Clear orange pour with a small khaki head. Very light fruity aroma and flavor with bread and blueberry. Ehhhh.

Had this from bottle, no real smell and a vaguely blueberry taste. Decent head and alright lacing.

ExpendableHero (745) - Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Golden beer with a thin, white head. Aromas of funky blueberries, and not much else. Tastes of some wheat, tart blueberries, and some skunky flavors. Slightly mouth puckering sour berry finish. The blueberry flavor is a bit too tart and artificial. Refreshing, but a bit bland and watery.
