ExpendableHero (773) - 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.

chinchill (2767) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2015
12 oz bottle dated 27 July 2012, so a little past date but no signs of spoilage. [from Sept. 2012 notes] A: Pours a clear, amber-copper color with a small, dingy white head. Plenty of visible carbonation, both fine and coarse. The head settles quickly to a ring and partial top coat that endure and leave patches of lacing on the glass. S & T: vague fruity aroma I probably would not have identified as blueberry in a blind test. This fruitiness is mixed with some wheat, caramel and what smells like winter squash. The flavor is clearly blueberry and toasted grains. Overall, bitter and sweet are more or less in balance. M: A little over-carbonated and too sharp; light bodied; slightly dry finish. O: A rather mediocre blueberry wheat, with limited blueberry flavor and rather aggressive carbonation. In comparison to others, however, this one avoids an overdose of blueberry flavor and the more common problem of being overly sweet.

kramer (5347) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body under a one finger fizzy off-white head. The nose is kinda husky and grainy with just a bit of wheat and pretty minimal blueberry fruitiness. The flavor is really pretty weird. I was expecting a heavy blueberry extract/candy like flavor, but there’s very little blueberry in here. Very bland and boring stuff. lighter bodied but slightly clingy with minimal carbonation. This stuff is pretty awful.

Salmoniform (1199) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Honey hue with creamy off white head that settled. Aroma is wheat, berries, medicinal, straw. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium light body and soft carbonation. Taste is dry with a bitter following and medicinal finish. Overall this is a so-so brew.

slowrunner77 (6707) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 30, 2014
"copper in color with a thin white head. lively carbonation, but a little too thin and light for my taste. subtle blueberry in the aroma. really, not much going on when cold. pretty boring. opens up nicely as it warms, but it’s a summer beer that you wouldn’t think you’d have to let air out before drinking. get’s softer with some of the wheat, subtle hops and fruit coming out a little. probably a one timer for me."

Bottle. Orange pour with not much head. Smells of malt and slight blueberry. Tastes of the same. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Danyel (1332) - Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours orange with white head. Aroma is caramelly, grainy. Taste is a touch of berry, floral, dirty, earthy, medium carbonation. Not the best.

BrewBoxer (2400) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2014

Herbicles69 (57) - Parker, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Poured from bottle into pint glass. It really just taste like a wheat beer. I can't really pick up on any blueberry. Or very minimal at that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Weird, aroma and flavors seem artificial. Smell musty blueberries with wheat. Get blueberry in the flavor too, but not enjoyable.

blklab2007 (2080) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle poured a brown amber color with a thin cap of off white head. Aroma has blueberry, some malts, and some damp berry skins. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has a lightly malted core, mild blueberry, and a light tang on the finish. This is not a syrupy extract tasting beer so that is a big plus.
