A crisp, refreshing blueberry wheat ale, brewed with malted barley, white wheat and all-natural blueberry puree. This delicious, unfiltered ale pours a light shade of pink, and offers a mild fruit aroma. A great choice for summer!

Bottle, shared with guests. Medium purple, short lived head. Soapy berries, sweet and mildly estery. Normally blueberries are my favourite fruit to match with beer, but this didn’t work for me. At all.

reebtogi (4891) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours a pale amber color with 2 fingers of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild blueberry and cereal grains. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a dry finish. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Nicely done, well balanced, and not too fruity.

Draft - Berry jam and grains. Hazy copper with an off white head. Grains and Berry jam, not sure about blueberry. Ok.

Very strong blueberry flavor with a sweet aroma and flavor. Clean finish and a slightly bluish amber colour.

Pours an attractive deep wisteria with a hint of pink in the creamy, off-white head. Blueberries lead the aroma without overpowering the yeasty, doughy wheat ale underpinning. Palate is stronger, with nice balance of blueberries, a touch of lemon and bread. Very smooth, pert and refreshing. This is a fruit beer that will appeal to those who dislike the usual categories of sweet or sour. It’s an ale that happens to highlight blueberries, without being sugary or bitter.

mcberko (9752) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 30, 2014
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a murky opaque burgundy with a small beige head. Aroma is very dirty and earthy, with dulled blueberries. Flavour brings out potent blueberries, with a little wheat, and some earthiness. Quite fruity and well-balanced - tastes better than it smells. Decent beer.

pictoman (803) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
Poured from the tap. Medium purple red with pinkish white head. Bready wheat with mild blueberry in the background. Medium body.

dslam (94) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
Bluish pink color, the room is dark so it’s hard to determine the proper color. Puree based sugar aroma. I don’t taste a lot of fruits. A little flavor of ’fruit’ but nothing specific. Leaves a little puree based after taste. Overall I feel like they tried to put too many fruits and none of the flavors cone through.

brokensail (13679) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 31, 2014
On tap @ Tap & Barrel - Olympic Village. Nice purple colored pour with a short lived white head. Fruity, slightly syrupy aroma. Sort of like blueberry pancakes. A hint of lemon zest and some doughy malts. Flavor is lightly tart and citrusy with a lot of blueberry jam. Some grass, lemon peel, and tart berry. Nice, actually.

Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Draught @ Tap & Barrel Coal Harbour. Beautiful purple colour, mix of fruit, some wheaty character, and a balanced, slightly tart fruit finish. Would be a 5 for appearance if it had a nice head.
