DuffMan (6752) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 5, 2007
Cloudy pale yellow, dense foamy white head. Blueberry cupcake aroma. A nice blend of soft blueberry and vanilla flavours on a wheaty palate, but a little too sweet and somewhat artificial to me. I’m glad I only got a taser mug.

cloudy yellow, fine white head, nice clove and banana aroma, light malt flavor with a touch of banana, a very light hint of blueberry and no sign of vanilla, good combination of flavors
-------- /> Date: 06/30/2005

light sweet blueberry aroma blended with a nice creamy vanilla character, smooth body that takes on a creamy essence probably influanced by the creamy aspect of the aroma and flavor, up front vanilla cream flavor with a bit of sweet blueberry under the surface, no banana or clove or any real hefe character, a nice drinking summer beer that might be a bit too sweet

presario (4631) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2007
Sampler mug. Cloudy dark yellow. Blueberry aroma. Tastes like a solid wheat beer with a nice blueberry undercurrent rather than blueberry flavour overpowering a weak American Wheat.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 16, 2006
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that was mostly lasting and left behind a hazy dark yellow brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma contained mild blueberry and vanilla notes. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The weak flavor contained notes of blueberry and vanilla. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

Ratman197 (9828) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 20, 2006
On tap @ Chicago poured a cloudy gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of vanilla and some bluebeery. Palate was light bodied and very dry. Flavors of wheat, light vanilla and blueberry with a dry lingering tart finish. If this tasted as good as it smells I think they would be on to something.

dwyerpg (4567) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 4, 2006
Smells wonderful, the blueberries are in full effect. Not sure how this is retired, since I had it last night on tap at the brewery. First blueberry beer I’ve had. Starts off/w blueberries in the flavor, quickly disintegrates into crappy wheatiness and a lot of it. Couldn’t finish the sample. See how aroma boosts up this rating?

fiulijn (14599) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2006
Draught at the brewpub
Cloudy blond color with orange shades. Aroma of vanilla and light raspberry. A decent Wheat in the background, with light sweet fruit.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Pours a hazy reddish/orange color. Light fruity aroma. Some graininess and yeast. Creamy vanilla flavor. Reminds me of cream soda in some ways.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - APR 1, 2005
Cloudy yellow, thin white head. Perfumey blueberry aroma, not bad. The flavor was sweet and fruity and not all that pleasant. It lacks subtlety with the berries and vanilla and it’s just too much. Lighter bodied. I’d skip it, but it does come with their sampler at the Four Queens so you might not get that option.

Suttree (5144) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Cloudy yellow, with a slight blue tint. Blueberry aroma, as one might imagine. There is blueberry and vanilla ine flavor, but it seems kind of artificial. Too much sweet, nothing to balance it out.
