12 oz bottle at a tasting on January 13. This one is definitely a little different. There is a sweetness to it, but not as much as you’d expect in a fruit beer. The pour is a darker gold with a darker white head that foamed up a bit. The head leaves just about no lace. The aroma is definitely faint blueberry, but there isn’t much else. I was hoping for a little more complexity or perhaps an ale-like tendency, but it’s not there. The flavor is also faint in the blueberry with an overly sweet note that fades through an excessively sour malt finish. The mouth feel is thin with a slightly excessive carbonation and a lingering sourness.

Very fruity, aromatic beer. Sweet, not tart. A high quality fruit-infusion type beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not overly aggressive as far as fruit beers go. The blueberry is apparent, though not overpowering. Orangish beer with a wheat slick mouthfeel.

Pours a pale yellow. Has a faint fruit and berry aroma. Taste like a blueberry Smirnoff ice with a sour malt aftertaste.

Draught. This is a pretty strongly flavoured blueberry ale with way too much fruit for my taste.

Clear gold with a thin cap head. The nose is like what your kitchen smells like after you bake blueberry muffins, but about 25% less delightful, with a wheat beer aroma. The flavor is way too sugary sweet with some candied blueberry and sugary ’dulce’. Definitely a girlfriend beer. Kinda cloying and gross actually.

Light gold pour with decent head. Blueberry aroma immediately out of the bottle, but then it settles more mildly and the wheat comes equally through. Taste is somewhat bitter at first before the blueberry hits. Medium carbonation. Somewhat watery palate. Flavors don’t really last long; aftertaste feels a little artificial. Decent fruit.
