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.

Overall, pretty good. Blueberries all over taste and nose, but otherwise a very dry malty brew.

~Pours a pale yellow color with small white head. ~Strong blueberry scent with some wheat. ~Starts off a tart blueberry flavor and finishes with a mellow wheaty flavor. ~Light fizzy feel ~Not my cup of tea. I don’t care for the candy blueberry tatse. I guess it’s good for what it tries to be.

Draft at San Diego brewery. Nice fruity taste of blueberry. Very easy to drink. not to sweet. Decent.

On draft at San Diego Brewing Company. I question that I was given the correct beer. I did not detect any blueberry in the flavor. It was very mild and boring. A weak wheat, with or without the blueberry taste.

Pours hazy yellow with slight white head. Aroma like blueberry muffins. Subtle to just a little too sweet on the blueberry flavor, but not bad.

Very sweet and fruity aroma. A real spicy blueberry flavor...unfiltered. It was overall quite good. Not really my style.

Draught somewhere in San Diego. Aroma is all sweet blueberry. Flavor is equally sweet with some wheaty cream finish. Tasted great with lunch.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - APR 10, 2006
Came from draught a cloudy gold and frm hite head. Blueberry fragrance and taste very dominate. Slight wheat acidty to balance sweet blueberry flavors. Enjoyable but not one to drink a lot of.

Another great one from SDBC. I have had many bad fruit beers, but this is one of the best I have ever had. Nice clear straw color with some head. Blueberry aroma but not overwhelming. Perfectly balanced blueberry taste. Not syrupy but still precent.
