This was one of the better fruit beers and better blueberry ales that I have tried. This would be perfect for a spring or summer day to quench a thirst. Give it a try.

A good "summer time" beer. Tastes best very cold. A light crisp refreshing beer. My wife who does not drink a lot of beer "because of the taste" remarked that she liked the flavor and could drink this beer.

I may have corrupted this review by drinking my homebrewed house amber before this. Wish it tasted as good as it smelled. Would have thought it was a lager by its body and crispness, not sure where the wheat is. Would be a nice summer beer by the pool. I prefer the sweetwater blueberry from what I remember. Picked this up in a self mixed six pack at Midtown Beer and Liqor in Nashville.

Not much to this. Light wheaty beer with a hint of blueberries in the taste. Wish it tasted more like it smelled with more in yer face blueberry. Good but coulda been much better.

Clear light gold, small, quickly vanishing, white head. Blueberry aroma right off the bat, followed by yeasty bread. LIght body, a little fizzy. Sweet malt and the blueberries lead to a sour finish. Would be better on a hot August day. Not my cup of tea, or glass of beer for that matter.

Not bad. The blueberry is really what did it for me. Sweet smelling and tasting. Not as good as I thought it would be, but not bad.

I didn’t like this beer at all. I am suprised by the decent ratings. Reminded me of Bud Light with blueberry added. The blueberry was overwhelming and odd.

The appearance is a pale golden color with a moderate head. The aroma is fantastic though, freshly picked blueberries. The flavor of the beer isnt dominated by blueberries but they are definitley there. I catch some hay and corn notes in the beer as well. I guess for a fruit beer its not too bad but nothing Id want to drink often.

12 oz bottle. Wonderful blueberry aroma. Very small head when first pours and quickly dissipates. Great taste. I like this beer and would certainly buy it again if the opportunity arrises

Clear straw color with a very small white foam gathering at the top after a good pour. That fades quickly to reveal and keep a super skinny collar and lacing is lightly sticky but placed in long, thick strings.
Nice aroma, quite aromatic, even as it poured. The blueberry is quite evident with a fresh snap of fruity buzzings. Once it warms and you get closer it seems to fade pretty rapidly to unvail a very clean wheat malt presence and light starchy cerealness.
Flavor is OK, very clean, crisp, and snappy on the palate with some deep blueberry tones sticking mostly to the back of its very high crispened wheat malt. Reminiscent of blueberry muffins that have been pulled out of a freezer. Lightly sugary, but more or less, starchy and quite light. Its not all that strong, but what does take place is pretty decent.
Feel is a tad over carbonated. Hard on the swallow at first but quickly is set aside by one very light body and nearly watery based middle and finish. Almost less then average for a wheat based beer but its overall super clean and crisply quick setting is more then adequate for drinkin it down with favorable ease.
