My brother loves this, and he swears it is really great if you have it at the brewery in Maine when it is really fresh. Ithought it looked great ó wonderful golden color, good white head, surprisingly clear even for a filtered wheat beer. Nose slightly berried, mouth slightly fruity from berries as well, but not strongly so. Taste was dry and astringent for a wheat. No strong wheat / bread or wheat / spice or wheat / banana flavors. Nice enough.

First had this years ago at the Bangor location, during a great vacation in Maine. Although not a great beer, this brought me back to some nice memories of a beautiful state. Medium gold, little head. Huge blueberry syrup aroma. Blueberry flavors dominate, again a bit on the syrup or extract side of the world, hint of wheat on the finish. Not bad if you are really into blueberry syrup. Would be good with pancakes.

Poured an amber color with a thick white head. Good lacing. Strong berry aroma. Wheat and blue berry flavor. Creamy smooth body. Easy drinking.

a good beer to drink on a hot day, or at a family BBQ.
Light and crisp with a taste of blueberries, not much else

This beer smells more like blueberries than it tastes like them. I think this is pretty bad. The blueberries dominate, and the wheat is sort of weak- Iím not into it.

Bottle. Gold bodied with a small white head. Nose is definitely blueberry but seems almost artificial. Smells like Blueberries & Cream Oatmeal before itís heated. Thatís really all the aroma is except minimal maltiness and grains. Itís pretty much as advertised. Wonder if it tastes the same as it smells? In a nutshell, yes. Blueberries, wheat, light malt sweetness and is very creamy and smooth on the palate. Also light bodied and very refreshing. Finish is following the same plot - blueberries, wheat and sweetened malts. Is this good? Itís not bad. Very drinkable and refreshing but more than one would be overkill.

(12 oz bottle) Nice white head which flattens pretty quickly. Clear yellow body. Nice blueberry aroma. Refeshing. Slight tartness balances mild sweetness of blueberries. I like this although Iím not big on wheat beers. Great summer brew.

Not a bad beer. My father-in-law bought this beer while on vacation in Maine, I probably would not have picked this up. Not a fan of flavored beers, but the blueberry was not overpowering, or too fake tasting. Itís got a decent wheat undertone, which complements the blueberry. I donít know if I would seek this out for myself, but I also wouldnít turn it away if offered to me. (Would be delicious in a Black & Blue).

This stuff was like blueberry nut bread squeezed into a bottle. The taste is there, and very well balanced. Sweet, but not overbearing. Met the brewer at a local fest. Suggested a serving at 50 degrees. Excellent indeed.

Medium gold color. My first thought is that of blueberry pancakes. A strong aroma. There is also a hint of honey. The taste is more subtle. It is has blueberries, honey and some bread. The taste of the blueberries is strong, but not overwhelming.
