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.

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
A: A rather uninspiring pale golden color with no head and not much in the way of visible carbonation either. S: A huge aroma of sweet blueberry pancakes. That’s really all there is to it, and I’m liking it. T: Like the nose would indicate, we’ve got sweet, sugary, blueberries and a doughy pancake like flavor. Perhaps a bit "spritzy" on the finish. M: Although the beer is really sweet, I was surprised that it isn’t syrupy. Quite light with a fairly low carbonation. D: I’m not normally one for these sweet, sugary beers, but this just tasted so much like one of the breakfast foods I really like: blueberry pancakes. As "bad" as it is to say, one of the better beers I had that day.

Cloudy pale yellow with a tiny white short lasting head. Sweet and fruity aroma with berries, wheat, yeast and wheat. Sweet lollypop flavor with berries, wheat and yeasty notes. Like a soda really.

hopdog (8796) - 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 (8314) - 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.
