UPDATED: JUL 18, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a murky orange color with a large foamy white head that lingered and left excellent lacing. The aroma was very strong blueberry and a hint of bread. The flavor was tart with moderately strong blueberry, sugar, cracker and yeast. Really reminded me of a blueberry muffin. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Interesting.

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.

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

my favorite of their brews without a doubt. Unique and somewhat interesting. Blueberries and vanilla fill the nose nicely. Sweet honey hints in there too. Cloudy hefe. color with average head. First taste causes the cheeks to pucker a bit, but after that the mouth becomes quite used to it and it is easy to drink. I can definitely taste blueberry muffins, but it isn’t overpowering. Aside from the blueberry flavor and vanilla aroma - it is kinda bland. Bubbly on the palate - nothing over the top. Pretty decent overall.

I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh. Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

Hazed yellow pour with white head. Aroma of blueberries and medium vanilla. Blueberries, vanilla flavor with a flat blueberry finish. Medium body and a tad fizzy.

If there's anyone that can make me like a beer named "Blueberry Vanilla Wheat," it's CBC. I'm not even a wheat fan, but I found this one to be surprisingly enjoyable. Obvious notes of blueberry on the nose and palate, along with a very smooth mouthfeel. Cloudy-orangish color. A little too sweet for my tastes but still liked it more than I thought I would.

1st beer I had at this place, and in my opinion their best. Pours an attractive cloudy orange. Smell is as expected of blueberries, vanilla and some wheat. Taste is similar, and actually not too thin like most of their other beers. Creamy blueberry flavor with strong clove flavor and a hefeweizen yeastiness. Still a bit thin overall, but compared to their others, it’s good.

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.

Draft at the source. Cloudy pale yellow color. Aroma of blueberry. Taste is light vanilla, berries. Easy drinking.
