COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Malted wheat and the choicest American barley are combined with a blend of noble hops to create this light, fruity, refreshing beer. Brewed in the style of the American beer renaissance, Blue Star is unfiltered, the yeast adding a complex note to the flavor profile. Itís especially good with a slice of lemon!

Part of a six pack sent to me for my birthdat. This really should be called "Blue Star Light". Its very weak in flavor with your traditional banana and spice notes. Refreshing nonetheless.

Percy0103 (468) - MEXICO - APR 23, 2016
Bottle, 355ml A cloudy amber beer with no head. Aroma is of citrics (like lemonade) and wheat. Taste is bitter with an aftertaste of wheat. Medium bodied with flat carbonation. Weird finish that kind of reminds me of chlorine.

Sdaniel90 (746) - Mexico City, MEXICO - APR 23, 2016
Bottle, 355ml. Hazy golden with a head thatís completely gone in seconds. Citrus and wheaty aromas. Medium to light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Lightly sweet with a heavy acidity and no bitterness into a yeast and fruity finish. Disappointing from North Coast.

This beer was decent. Itís like and didnít really stand out in any particular way. Just a general wheat ale.

Panzerfaust (760) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - MAR 19, 2016
355ml bottle from Club de Cervezas. Pours a hazy and pale yellow color with a big white head that diminishes quickly but laces well. Aroma is laid back, flowery, with lots of wheat and grainy malts and tiny hints of fruit and spice. Notes of hay, grain, bread, dried fruit and some soft citrus. Decent. Taste is neutral, bready with some small amount of spice and a fresh but indiscernible touch from the hops. Nothign extraordinary but well drinkable. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Quaffable. It has its space and time on a hot day, but itís unlikely to satisfy if you look for complex aromas and explosion of flavors.

ozzy70 (453) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAR 16, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Poured hazy, thick white head. Aroma was spices, coriander, yeast and wheat. Tease was medium sweet and wheaty.

eduardovl (1279) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2016
330ml bottle served in a plastic glass. Pours a clouded orange color forming a creamy white head with good retention and some lacings formed and left in the glass. Nose is sweet and citrus with some pepper notes. Taste is sweet with strong notes of wheat. Zest and pepper notes. Light body, medium carbonation. Wheat in the aftertaste. Good.

Refreshing! This has a pleasant lemon flavor I didnít expect at all. Tastes good even after consuming a strong stout. Great summer brew...Iíll have to keep it in mind.

Sigmund (6236) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2015
355 ml bottle, in Sacramento. Pale straw colour. American wheat ale (that are not intended to be hefeweizens or witbiers) must be one of the most boring beer styles ever. Nothing especially "wrong" with the aroma and flavour of this one, just grainy and boring.

nuplastikk (5570) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2015
12oz bottle. Old school American Wheat. Grainy, old a corn feel. Mild wheat tones, mostly just straightforward golden malt. Clean, well brewed. Straightforward and simple, OK.
