Lite, crisp, American! Even for the non beer enthusiast, this Blueberry treat pleases even the craft beer geek

Bottle: pours a nice golden hue with a huge fluffy head and very good lace. Meh... Okay blueberries character and interesting bitterness that each on there own are tasty but clash when on the palate. Fizzy and shockingly dry finish with metallic aftertaste. Just a weird thingy, need to dial down the hops a tad or increase the sweeter malt part for balance.

Sample at the brewpub. Clear pale golden color with a medium creamy white head that recedes slowly to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of wheat, blueberry and malt. Medium body with flavors of sweet blueberries, wheat and grainy malt. The finish is fruity with a berry aftertaste. Decent overall.

On tap at the Chicago Beer Fest 12. Pours a cloudy, golden-orange colored body with a bit of a reddish-pink hue. Finger-width, frothy, off-white and pinkish head that dissipates slowly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is candy wheats with a bit of a stale blueberry and earthiness. Slightly metallic as well. Flavor is similar. Sweet, grainy wheats with an oddly metallic blueberry note. Finishes cloyingly sweet and dry with a higher, earthy bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a light-medium body and a somewhat fizzy carbonation. Overall, a messy fruit beer thats a bit too bitter and cloyingly sweet. Not terrible, but not to my liking.

Part of a draft sampler at Pig Minds. Pours a pale gold with 2 blueberries in the glass. +points for presentation. Aroma of light blueberry and light wheat. Taste is light bitter. Light herbal hops with blueberry on the finish. Light bodied with a slick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, pretty good. I would gladly drink this again.
