omhper (19194) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Cloudy golden, small head. Fruity nose where vanilla and blueberry are extremely prominent. Sweet and fruity, medium bodied. An odd beer, bordering to the bizarre - like drinking blueberry pie. In theory this sounds awful, but when all comes around I can’t really resist being a bit secretely fond of this crazy stuff.

Cloudy blond color with orange shades. Aroma of vanilla and light raspberry. A decent Wheat in the background, with light sweet fruit.

on tap-pours a thin retaining white head and cloudy yellow/gold color. Aroma is key lime, pine, some wheat. Taste is tart lime, vanilla/blueberry, some wheat, perfumy. Interesting and enjoyed, but not something I’d get again.

Mode: Draft

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

Tmoney99 (10412) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Draft sample. Poured hazy amber color and an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate vanilla blueberry aroma. Medium body with a thick smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium tart sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Refreshing sweet fruit beer.

Lubiere (9752) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
A lightly hazed golden weizen with a thin white head. In aroma, loads of blueberry pulp, not bad. in mouth, a sweet blueberry jam with strange lemon Pledge, a hint of mint, strange. On tap at 4 Queens location, August 8, 2012.

Ratman197 (9454) - 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.

Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a hazy yellow color with a thin white head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing. Mild honey and fruit in the nose. Light-bodied with a flavor similar to blueberry cough syrup. Some sweetness as well, but all around not very tasty. The finish is tart fruit and leaves some berry aftertaste. Overall I would not try this again.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2009
Sampler @ 4 Queens, Vegas. Pours golden cloudy, white head. Aroma wheat, blueberry, and wasn’t getting much vanilla. Taste, tart blueberry,wheat, light note of vanilla, overall mouthfeel was just too artificial.
