Pours a slightly hazy golden with a frothy well-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh sweet blueberries and a touch of caramel malt. Starts with decent body and sugary sweetness along with some floral blueberry character. A pretty decent blueberry wheat but could use some more body and complexity.

Growler - Dark hazy purple brown, off white fizzy head. Soft blueberry and lemon wheat aromas ride a touch of earthiness througout. Sweet blueberry flavors receive a light wheaty-earthed undertone. Light bodied, medium carbonation, fruity finish. Refreshing, but could use a bit more balance...
Earlier Rating: 6/24/2008 Total Score: 2.3
Growler - Hazed dark amber, thin fizzy white head. Faint blueberry lemon aromas with hints of earthy wheat. Weak flavors of nutty wheat and hints of blueberry from start to finish. How about some flavor!? Light bodied and thin, light carbonation, bland wheat-like finish. This was just not good. Fruit was practically undetectable. At least his IPA’s are strong....

Aroma: Nice light fruit nose, with a little spice

I thought this was actually a pretty solid wheat ale, the berries were subtle enough that the wheat flavor really shows though.
