2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma has a bit of wow factor big strong blueberries up front. The combination of wheat and blueberries isn’t doing a lot for me though. Interesting flavors and there is just another flavor on the back of the palate that just isn’t sitting right. Thin mouth feel. great for that summer scorcher.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled at microbrewery. Poured an amber colour with a small white head and low carbonation. Aromas as expected of wheat and blueberries. Medium bodied. Taste dominated with sweetness of blueberries but with a thin finish. A different taste but not a beer that I could consume more than one glass at a time.

330ml bottle. A clear amber colour with a moderate pure white head. Banana and blueberries in the aroma make for a sweet mix while the flavour is similar. Clean in the mouth and neat on the palate with a sweet finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a small white head.
Nose shows artificial blueberry and little else...
Same thing in the way of flavours, blueberry dominating, although a little banana, wheat and bubblegum shows too. Pretty subtle though.
Good low carbonation works well.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap, GABS. Cloudy greyish orange, white head. Aroma has lots of nice blueberries and their skins. Light bready body. Some tartness. Refreshing in small quantity, couldn’t drink much of it. Perhaps overly fruity - or at least too much skin in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at GABS, the Local Taphouse in Sydney. This is one of the beers i wasn’t looking forward to trying, but they managed to make this drinkable if not nice. Pours a hazy yellow/orange, with a thin fading white head. Aroma was (surprise!) strong blueberry, with some wheat notes.
Taste is, again, stronf blueberry, with supporting flavours of caramel, tart apple, light wheat and vanilla. Decent mouthfeel, but lacks a true finish.
