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.

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.

Poured from the tap. Medium purple red with pinkish white head. Bready wheat with mild blueberry in the background. Medium body.

dslam (91) - 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 (13278) - 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 (13539) - 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.

fiulijn (16428) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
Draught at Tap & Barrel, Coal Harbor, Vancouver
Dark purple-brown color with creamy head. light fruity aroma, and light yeast. It has smooth mouthfeel, and nice bread backbone, with mild blueberry presence; no fruit acidity and low bitterness.
Brewers, if you strongly feel you need to brew a fruit beer, this is one way to do it in a non offensive way. Delicate and bready.

Tons of carbonation even though chilled. Purple-blue in the glass. Cloudy. Wheat and fruit on the nose with a touch of yeast. Some acid from the fruit. Malt present but little hop flavour. Ok for a hot day with food like soft cheese.
