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.

Draft at the brewpub. Clear dark gold pour, white head. Lots of blueberries, flavor is better then the aroma, which was a little musty. Pretty sweet... bread, lightly malty. Pretty decent for a blueberry wheat.

tap at San Diego Brewing Co. - It says "Callahan’s", but the bartender told me SDBC makes it. About all I can say about this one is that it’s a blueberry bomb. It smells like blueberries. It tastes like blueberries. They’re dumped into a light wheat beer. The fruit isn’t completely overwhelming and the beer is indeed refreshing. It could certainly be better though.

Faint berry nose. Light berry taste that quickly turns to vinegar. An old keg? Or just a poorly made beer?

On tap at Callahans; had it previously at SDBC, but didn’t 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.

Draft @ SDBC. Pours a clear golden color. Nice blueberry on the nose as well as in the flavor. Finish holds cereal grain and blueberry.
Earlier Rating: 1/30/2008 Total Score: 3.1
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.

mjg74 (2483) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 9, 2006
Tap, San Diego Brewing. Medium golden pour. Strong creamy blueberry aroma. The flavor is a bit grainy with quite a bit of blueberry. Not too bad of a fruit beer.

Lots of blueberry, not much wheat. Decent overall, but a little too sugarry.

Artificial blueberry aroma and flavor. Pale, pale yellow. Just fake to me.

fordest (1963) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Draft at San Diego Brewing Co. Hazy Yellow. No head and consequently no lacing either. Aromas were some blueberry and some yeast. Flavors were sweet blueberry first, then some sour vinious flavors, finished off by Captain Cruch Berries. Not a bad beer to try once in a while.

Pretty standard blueberry beer. Pours hazy, golden yellow with a thin white head, specks of lace. Smells like blueberry soda. Tastes like blueberry soda. Lots of blueberries. Kind of fake though. Light, syrupy body, vibrant carbonation.
