UPDATED: MAY 17, 2005 On draft at a local pub that has many fine crafts I have yet to sample. Strong blueberry aroma really makes you wonder if itís a beer. Mild wheat to it that the blueberry masks. Not a bad alternative and Iíd rate it better than a BMC.

Ever have one of those blueberry cereal bars? This is seems like Kellogs in a glass with a alcohol added. But it has some redeeming qualities. I enjoy the small bite I get from the aftertaste and its a good beer to have after drinking heavy duty stuff. The aftertaste sticks around for a bit. Usually when I have a good brew, my dog Max comes over to sniff it. This time he moved away from it. He was repelled and so was my wife. Maybe I should have tested this on a sea dog? How such a light beer is a winter one evades me.

From a 12oz. bottle. This ale is a clear reddish-gold. Head is thin and quickly dissipates. There is no smell save the blueberries. Very one dimensional. Tastes of blueberries of course. Leaves a bittersweet aftertaste. This is similiar to their raspberry wheat ale but the blueberries are tart and offer more bitterness, adding to the complexity of the taste. Medium bodied with a decent aftertaste. A decent ale but I will probably leave the rest for my wife.

This beer definately has itís place: when you canít get your girlfriend/wife to drink beer with you. Iíll admit, I enjoyed the first few sips of this beer. Hey, I like blueberries! But what happened to the rest of the beer? Itís more watery and thin then my pound and ground Miller Lite! Now, itís not terrible at all. A real hot day....sitting by the pool..... and you girlfriend ran out of liquor....give her one of these "wine coolers". Iíll finish off my 6 pack and that will be my only experience with this beer.

This beer starts out with an overwhelming blue berry smell. Itís got a good wheat ale color. I find though that this beer reminds me of a blueberry muffin.

Clear pale yellow beer with no head. Fairly strong aroma of blueberries. Flavor is blueberry and bland american wheat ale. Not bad but somewhat of a disappointment, and I wasnít expecting much. Would have been better unfiltered. Drinkable but mediocre.

A very interesting take on a wheat beer...aroma like blueberry muffins...color nontypical for a wheat(a copper/brown, compared to a usual cloudy yellow). Very full blueberry flavor, but finishes a little light. However a quite enjoyable beer.

Bottle: pours yellow with a small disappearing white head. I smelled the blueberries from a foot away after opening the bottle. I was expecting a purplish drink and was somewhat disappointed it was yellow. The bottle says "blueberry flavor". Whereís the color of blueberries? Aroma of blueberries, taste of blueberries, thin golden ale qualities. If you like blueberries, this is for you. And I must admit I like blueberries.

Tastes like a blueberry muffin. A decent ale that smells just like blueberrys and tastes somewhat like blueberrys and little else. The wheat ale that this was added to is a little light, though a decent ale. A little too one-noted and light. Really gay bottle design too.

Bottle pours a translucent golden, large white fizzy head, spotty lacing, with soft carbonation. † Very strong Blueberry aroma, strong enough to knock out anything else. † Reminds me of Blueberry pancakes. † Somewhat artificial Blueberry like flavor immediately up front. † For a wheat beer it isnt as thick/heavy as I would have liked, but I guess thats to be expected. † Medium body and mouthfeel. † Strong Blueberry finish. † Seems a bit more unsweetened at the finish. † Not as good as New Glarus, but for a Blueberry Ale I thought it was quite pleasing. † Very light, and full of Blueberry aroma & flavor.
