COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like our award winning wheat beer, only with a refreshing hint of blueberry. Made with domestic barley, wheat malts and of course blueberries! It fast becomes a favorite for anyone who gets a taste.

Not at all the purple-syrup-fest I always fear with this sort of beer. Solid wheat beer with just the right amount of blueberry.

Bottle @ home. I picked this up for the gf a while back and it’s been chilling (pardon the pun) in the back of the fridge for quite a while. Clear, golden yellow appearance with a white head. Slightly tart, fresh blueberry, citrusy wheat aroma. Soft mouth feel. Tasty, fresh blueberry, slightly bready, wheat malty flavor. Surprisingly a tasty enough blueberry wheat that it reminds me of New England versions.

Pours clear orange with thin to no white head from 12 oz bottle. Got this in a make your own 6 pack and didn’t expect much. Aroma was really nice however, sweet blueberry and crisp fruity wheat mix with some nice cake-y and biscuit bread, make for a blueberry muffin of sorts. Taste is not quite as good, the sweetness of blueberry overtakes a bit and the finish leaves some to be desired. However, there are notes of blueberry muffin up front, with the blueberry, wheat and sweet cake, finishes a bit watery and carbed a bit much, but overall this is pretty tasty.

On tap during 2011 Craft Lager Fest. Hazy straw color with a fluffy white head. Smells like blueberry yogurt. Tasted pretty crisp and light, with some assertive blueberry tones, but refrains from being too sweet. But not too flavorful either. Too crisp and wheaty and ’meh’.

natejgood (390) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Pours a hazy light golden color with a minimal white head. Strong aroma of sweet blueberries, almost a bit syrupy. Flavor is a bit more sweet than blueberry but is crisp enough to be enjoyable. I think the flavor of this beer is a bit overdone for what it is, but it isn’t altogether a bad beer.

pours a light murky gold with a light white head, not much to look at... the nose is actually really nice, its really true and rich blueberries, blueberries muffins, a light wheat finish, blueberries dominate in a good way... as good as the nose is the taste is as bad, light blueberries, sweet cake, then a flat skunky sparkling water finish... not worth having but one of the better fruit wheat beers going

Not a big fruit or wheat beer fan, but this is well done. Blueberry is subtle so works great with the wheat. Nice spring/summer ’novelty’ brew. I think a lot of people would really love this and even those dismissive of fruit beers would be pleasantly surprised.

Sampled at CBF 2010. Hazy golden pour. Aromas of Rasberry and bread. Aw heat/ tart taste that has a crisp bite finish. Pretty good for the style.
