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.

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

DSG (5782) - 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.

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.

bluemeow76 (693) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2008
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 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 donít care for the candy blueberry tatse. I guess itís good for what it tries to be.

JorisPPattyn (7907) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
Draught. Arbitrary score 4/5 for Appearance, as nighttime conditions prevented correct assessment. Fruity nose, if anything reminding of pineapple; blueberry remaining a possibility. Very dull. Perfumed, utterly artificial flavour and very watery, if slightly wheaty background. Watery, empty, even the typical wheatslickness missing. Poor. And thatís putting it mildly.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2010
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.
