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.

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.

BMan1113VR (7853) - 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 isn’t cloying or annoyingly artificial. Lively to fizzy bubbles lead to a lively mouthfeel.

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, 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.

Dogbrick (7870) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a clear gold color with a medium thin and fizzy white head that diminishes rapidly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of blueberry with touches of wheat and malt. Light-bodied and fruity with flavors of sweet blueberries and malt, with mild wheat and spice undertones. The finish is fruity and short. Just average overall.

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.

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.
