johnnyoski (432) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - SEP 12, 2009
Draft at brewpub. Pours a hazy golden color with a big frothy white head. Blueberry dominates the aroma but there is also a hint of sourdough. Very sweet initial blueberry taste eventually turns quite tart and finishes with a yeasty, doughy aftertaste. Watery texture and a little overcarbonated. I was hoping for something a little more smooth and refreshing.

Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2009
On draught at the brewpub in Ishpeming, Northern Michigan. Pours a semi-clear golden pale colored brew with a thin off-white head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of blueberry pie filling, some golden grain malt and a touch of bread dough. Taste is light to medium bodied, wheat grain, blueberries, almost reminded me of Kelloggs Boo Berry cereal. Finish is semi-sweet, blueberry aftertaste that slowly disappears. had this both with and without the blueberries added. The flavor was pretty much the same except watching the blueberries rise and fall with the carbonation was a little entertaining than watching the local golf game on TV.

BBB63 (6011) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 14, 2008
2008 MiBGF: Cloudy gold hue with a small frothy head. The aroma has notes of BLUEBERRY PIE along with some wheat husks, pale malts, and mint. The taste is twangy and blueberry driven with a wheaty and yeasty background. The mouth feel is quite refreshing and smooth, a nice summer beer. I liked this probably more than most will.

On tap at the brewpub. I was afraid of this. This beer is the wheat with a few frozen blueberries dropped in. At the least, I can hope they’re local. Color is a hazed orange-straw, with a soapy thick white head above, stained with wisps of purple. Carbonation glows off of the berries as they undualted in the glass. Nose comes as blueberry pancakes and dough. Spritzy, freshish and as a parfait should be. Flavor is artificial, yet. A soapy, dried blueberry candy mingles with light alcohol, wheat sugar, and blandess. I can taste the freezer burn crystals on the berries. Seedy and with stems. This is such a terrible idea. What a gimmick. Finishes a little dry and acerbic.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 11, 2007
On tap at the restaurant/brewery. Hazy, murky light orange-brown body, medium off-white head. Served with blueberries in the glass. Distinctive blueberry syrup aroma, backed by cerealy, acidic, biting wheat malt. Blueberry also dominates the first few sips, after which the estery yeast and tangy wheat characteristics become more assertive. What irritated me about this beer was that it is considered a "seasonal" beer, yet the blueberries floating in the glass were shriveled, frozen excuses for fruit. Put up the bucks and put at least a few fresh blueberries in the glass, folks!

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2007
On tap at the brewpub, Ishpeming MI. Hazy straw colour with oscillating blueberries in the glass and a lasting white head, with a blueberry ripple. Pleasant fruity aroma and flavour. However, I found the mouthfeel to be a little soft - it could have done with a touch more bite. The dividing line between delicate and wishy-washy can be a fine one. Pleasant enough. Have to say though that after 5 pale offerings from an 8 beer sampler I was getting a little bored with the lighter styles, so it may have scored higher in different circumstances.

Cloudly Yellow Color with White Head. Nice Fresh Blueberry Aroma. Bittersweet Taste...Alot of Blueberry Flavor Balanced by Wheat. Very Nice Fruit Beer.

on draft at the brewery. light gold color, with an intense blueberry aroma, and a refreshing wheaty blueberry flavor. some straw-like hops but the emphasis is on a pale blueberry beer as opposed to a wheat, which i like better. they asked if i wanted some fresh blueberries in the glass, and i gave it a try--it’s a nice touch. and yes, i ate the blueberries at the end.

Color is cloudy lightish yellow with a thin white head of tight foam with light lacing in small patches. Smell is faint, but with a good dose of blueberry, quite fresh and breezy, nice to wiff, with a hint of wheat backing adding to the fruityness some. Taste is smooth and fruity, a touch of sweetness with a favorable blueberry flavor, fresh, lightly crisp and refreshing, a bit tart in the finish with lingering wheat in the background. Feel is a lighter body, very drinkable, a sweet blueberry treat for the summer heat.
