Pretty average fruit beer. More berry aroma than flavor. Very quick, dry finish. More maltiness upfront than I would have figured. Okay to drink, not to buy.

Blueberry seemed artificial... very strong nose but little berry flavor. Slight spiciness to an otherwise average light ale

Dark straw color with a tall, fluffy white head. Blueberry cheesecake aromas, with candied berries, cream and a hint of wheat. Lots of blueberry flavor in this one. There’s an interesting backdrop of a cream ale/kolsh/american wheat. Dryness in the finish seems to come from the fermented fruit. Not a great brew, but it works for what it is.

Thanks to Matta for another interesting beer from his storehouse down in Tampa! Sea Dog pours out a large creamy off white head over a clear medium yellow body. Great looking beer. The aroma delivers what the label has me wanting, blueberries! Nice floral aroma with fresh blueberries. The palate is bit weak, light with some astringent dryness towards the finish.

aroma of funky, fruity cheese, mustiness, and gym socks. flavor of light blueberry creme cheese, wheat. the palate is easy, but it seems to want to turn a bit sticky. eventually, the aroma is just blueberries, which is nice--so, let the air work its magic. anyway, lively appearance, but the bubbles are big, and look like caviar. not bad.

on tap at MacGrady’s, pour is a clear gold color, not cloudy as i expected from wheat beer. the aroma is sweet and strong with blueberries. the flavor was more understated, as the blueberries were more of a background taste to the crisp sweetness of the wheat. the body was thin and light, and was very crisp and refreshing. not a bad wheat beer, but i wanted more blueberries.

Wow I was almost expecting this one to pour out with a purplish tint. Instead I was treated to a clear honey golden ale with a nice white head. The aroma was, well it was very strong on the blueberries, but there was a fainter aroma of cotton candy. The flavor actually highlights the wheat with the blueberry having a weaker presence in the mouth. A nice display of hops along with more of that cotton candy. A truly great tasting beer for the summer.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2005
Disappearing head, golden body. Aroma of smelly feet and blueberry - artificial and sticky. Blueberry candy flavor, sweet and artificial and not very beerish. No wheat.

It pours a nice clear wheat color. The aroma is as expected, blueberries. The taste starts off very bland, no flavor, but ends with a decent blueberry aftertaste. The more you drink it the more you realize you’re drinking a golden colored blueberry muffin... not for me.

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 it’s a beer. Mild wheat to it that the blueberry masks. Not a bad alternative and I’d rate it better than a BMC.
