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.

WABeerFiend (271) - - 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.

Fukito (814) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 2, 2015
Hazy light golden with orange hues and a solid creamy white head. Aroma is peaches and spicy phenols. Flavor is spicy yeast with some very slight clove/ banana and a lemony aftertaste. Medium to light palate. Not overly complex but tasty and refreshing. More of a mild heffe than your average american wheat.

hfmejias (870) - Dover, Delaware, USA - DEC 1, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured cloudy yellow, big fizzy white head but no lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus fruit and wheat but honestly kind of weak. Taste is bit watered down; but is wheat, fruit and malts. Easy to drink, not too bad.

DSG (6459) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks zvikar. Hazy yellow. Aroma of wheat, citrus and a spicy note. Wheaty flavor, slightly sweetish, with a tart hint, a bit of corn, citrus and mild spiciness. Pretty light-bodied.

"refreshing brew, and i agree that there is a disctinct lack of "straw aftertaste", but other than that, it’s just ok. NC makes some GREAT beers, but this ain’t one of em."

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a fair head that fades to nominal lacing. Aroma of citrus, wheat and bit of fruit. Taste of wheat, bit of citrus and fruit sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, clean with an easy citrus feel. Nice beer but fairly common for the style.
