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. It’s especially good with a slice of lemon!

Very pale with medium haze. Light citrus aromas, no hops. Flavor is similar, no hops. Crisp with medium carbonation. Not a flavor bomb but still very refreshing and approachable.

Hazy yellow. Smell is classic wheat, maybe a little lemon. Taste is refreshing, crisp malt, touch of hops, sweet finish. Nothing exceptional but really great in the summer.

Hazy yellow pour with medium sized off white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, slight citrus and hay. Taste of wheat, slight malts, faint citrus, faint hops. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation, crisp finish. Nothing really offensive but not all that great.

12oz brown bottle. Hazy golden. Creamy white head with minimal lacing. Nose has citrus and fruity notes. Taste is fruity with mild citrus, mild sweet notes and a touch of yeast. Light bodied, a touch watery. Not bad, this would be absolutely crushable in the summertime.

Vignale (2493) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2015
Flaska från Galatea/craftbeer. Varmt gyllengul, disig, ganska lågt vitt skum. Doft av söta äpplen eller pommac, lite vete, grön banan och jäst. Lätt smak, relativt söt, mycket äppelmust, väldigt lite humle, i princip ingen beska. Hade behövt antingen beska eller lite mer syrlighet (så rådet att tillsätta en citronskiva kanske inte är så dumt trots att det tar emot). Inte mycket jästkaraktär heller eller någon karaktär alls. Nja inte så roligt. Test 2; Med citronskiva. Smakar först mest citron, men efter ett tag gifter sig smakerna och syran lyfter smaken något och balanserar sötma +0,4

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2015 Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea. Smak och doft av vete, humle med toner av örter, gräs och grön banan. Lätt kropp, lätt sötma och beska.

WABeerFiend (321) - - JAN 16, 2015
Poured into a tumbler on 05.14.14. A: 1/2 finger head, which recedes quickly. Yellow with a yeast cloud at the top. See through on the very bottom. S: Strong orange, some lemon. Maybe berry. It’s very sweet with an almost candy or juice like smell. T: Orange, berry, cherry are dominant. Sweet yeast is subtle. M: Crisp. Lots of carbonation. O: It did have a lot of carbonation, but it worked. It was a very refreshing beer, but average.
