COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You'll love it or hate it; no in-betweens. An excellent wheat beer for drinking on a hot day. The typical phenolic banana flavor of wheat ales is not evident. The blueberry flavor is slightly sweet without being cloying, with an interesting light overtone of black pepper. The finish is a lingering sensation, best done repeatedly.

BMan1113VR (7789) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 11, 2010
On tap at Blue Palms. Pours with a deep golden body and an off-white head. Nose is straight blueberry-buckwheat pancakes. Very strong and distinct aroma. Taste is also very easy to sum up: Clearly Canadian Blueberry Soda. Sweet, strong blueberry presence that somehow isnít cloying or annoyingly artificial. Lively to fizzy bubbles lead to a lively mouthfeel.

On tap @ San Diego Brew Co. Pours clear golden with a medium, fizzy head, some lacing. Nose was big on blueberries and not much else, pale malt perhaps. Clean and refreshing.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is sweet and acidic to light orange/vitamin C blueberry aroma. Flavour is the same with a light sweetness prior. Ends with a lasting citrusy fruity finish.

On tap at Callahans; had it previously at SDBC, but didnít know who made it at the time. ARoma of perfume and blueberry. Color was clear gold. Flavor was sweet, blueberry and wheat, with something akin to vanilla. Solid for style.

DSG (5036) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 24, 2009
(11/5/08) Draught sample at the San Diego Brewing Co. in San Diego. Clear pale golden color with no head. Nice aroma of ripe blueberrie, slightly acidic. Sweetish artificial flavor of blueberries, saccharine, gummy bears notes, a bit of wheaty notes and hints of acidity. Light-bodied. Smells quite good but thatís it.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2008
On tap at the San Diego Brew Pub. Their selection of house beers sucked sooo bad, they had to fill in the sampler with an outside beer. Poured a medium yellow color with a small sized white head. Aromas of blueberry muffins, and some wheatiness. Tastes of lighter blueberries with stronger wheat - opposite of the aroma. Sad as it was, this was the best they gave me - better than any of their house beers.

JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2008
Tap at San Diego Brewing Co. Hazy pale straw coloured beer with a thin white head. Aroma is herbal with a light blueberry aroma over a very light spicy wheaty maltiness. A little bit of grassy straw-like flavour. Dusty and a little bit sweet. Soft and fruity and not bad really.
