2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the Creve Coeur location. This was mostly clear and looked like raspberry juice. The aroma was blueberries and little more. It tasted like blueberries with wheat, although I don’t think wheat was included.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
[On-tap at Cedar Rapids] Notes have been misplaced, so in need of a re-rate. Poured extremely reddish-purple with a small, slightly pinkish white head. Aroma is weak, with just vague sweet fruitiness. Taste is very fruity up front, more fruit punch than anything, with a sharp transition into the malt towards the end. The malt and fruit did not mesh well. Long finish. Overall, I was able to finish it, but it really wasn’t that enjoyable.

Tap. Red color, white head. Looks like a Raspberry brew. Tastes like blueberry candy. Sweet malt, fake fruit. Candy. that’s all. I’d never order it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Roseville, MN location. Red color with a small head. Light blueberry aroma and a distinct cough syrup note. Blueberry steps up a bit in the flavor. Very vinous and oddly tanic. A fair amount of dusty wheat in the background. Not too shabby.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught during Winterfest 2009 in St Paul, MN. Pours a clear reddish amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a clean top. Aroma of blueberries, golden grain malt, some citrus and grassy hops. Taste is light bodied, with flavors of golden grain malt, grassy hops and a touch of blueberries. Finish is slightly watery, crisp with very little aftertaste. Overall, a very light berry fruit beer.
