Bottle. I can see why it was called "Kinda Blue". It was golden with a gentle violet hue. The aroma was a gentle whiff of blueberry and the taste was a gentle barely noticeable berry taste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Full bodied and malty. Not as light as many other blueberry beers. Slight blueberry finish that is enjoyable to an otherwise full flavored malty beer. Some odd fake flavors but overall enjoyable. The more I drink the more fake the flavors seem. Ok, but nothing special---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A decent enough beer for a hot day, but pretty bland all the way around. Better fruit beers out there.

On tap at Twisted. Light fruity notes with hint of blueberry and strawberry. Medium copper amber clear with no head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Sweet with caramel and fruit. Berry juice and sugar. Mild sweet finish with mild hop flavor and not much bitterness. Middle-of-the-road fruit beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a blue tinted- golden amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer big of a sweet blueberry smell mixed with a little bit of a wheat aroma. Overall, simple, but rather authentic in nature.
Taste – The taste begins with a blend of light malt and moderate blueberry flavor. It is moderately sweet upfront, but not in an obnoxious way, with it gaining a little bit more sweetness as the flavor moves on to the end. Some wheat and honey work their way into the tongue as well, and when mixed with the rest of the flavors ends up leaving a crisp, moderately sweet, but authentic blueberry wheat flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite thin with a carbonation level that is on the average to slightly higher side. The thinner body is fantastic for the refreshing character and blueberry flavors of the brew all while the slightly higher carbonation only accentuates this even more.
Overall - One of the beer blueberry beers out there. Not overly sweet, with a nice blueberry taste and a rather refreshing feel. A good summer brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
