Bottled. Poured brilliant golden with a short, tight-bubbled white head and a fair dose of rising carbonation. The aroma picked up blueberry dust over meaty wheat and a bit of honey.. more deep honey as it warmed up. The flavor found tart carbonation and blueberries on the tip of the tongue, with grainy wheat and dark honey supporting.. finished with tangy, lightly metallic notes and blueberry skins. Light-bodied and watery at several points on the palate.. carbonation was a tad aggressive.. OK overall.

Transfer from BA review on 4-13-14- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a golden amber color with a two finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades quite fast leaving only a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – As may be expected, the beer’s aroma is big of a nice blueberry smell. The blueberry, while strong is not artificial, but actually smells rather authentic of blueberries. This blueberry aroma is mixed with some aromas of a light wheaty nature as well as a bit of a floral smell, with the overall aroma being very sweet and fruity. Taste – The taste begins much drier then the nose would have suggested. It begins with a semi-sweet blueberry flavor mixed with a decent sum of a wheaty flavor. These two flavors create a base for the brew, both remaining relatively constant throughout the flavor profile. As the flavor advances some light earthy and floral notes come to the tongue along with some more grainy like tastes. At the end of the taste, a grassy flavor comes to the tongue, leaving a rather interesting blueberry in a field (wheat/grass/hay like) flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin and light with a carbonation level that is rather high. Both are quite nice for the style and make for a more crisp and refreshing brew, which match well the wheat and fruit flavors of the brew. Overall – A rather easy drinking fruit beer. It is nothing outstanding, but in terms of making for a not overly sweet, but moderately blueberry fruited flavored brew, this one has it right. Not too bad.

Smells like a delicious field of blue berries. Very bland taste, weird combination. Overall decent beer, worth a try.

This is your basic extract laden fruit beer only whoever brewed this seems to have added something a bit of something w/ lactic acid which makes this taste exactly like blueberry yogurt. I like blueberry yogurt OK, I guess, so I can’t say this is all bad but it’s not exactly what I look for in a beer. It is clear golden orange w/ a small head of white, fine bubbles. It is one dimensionally blueberry with just a hit of sweetness and that slight tartness I mentioned. This is light to medium bodied w/ very vigorous carbonation. I am willing to concede this is better than most of its ilk as it really doesn’t cloy but it is still not a stellar example of a natural tasting fruit beer.

"TJ’s special $4.99 for a sixer, but i’m still cheap on these and went for one at .83. For that price, there’s no risk. This wasn’t bad, per se, but exactly what was expected. a mediocre at best wheat beer with some semi-natural tasting blueberry flavor. not something i’d try again, but wouldn’t refuse either."

KBC Blueberry Wheat. Golden pour. Small white head. Little lacing. Big aroma of fake blueberry. Taste is perfume and fake blueberry. Sweet. Too sweet.

$3.16 for the bottle purchased in town at a respectable joint. The bar maiden, popped the lid off and threw it into the trash. To pint, pours a mauve-tinted golden brown, with which a whitish head 1 and half fingers in length stood. Immediately remember the cloves, frozen blueberry concentrate, sweat, and bread yeast on the nose, and in my mouth. A slight leathery character experienced by swallow. Quaffable. Flavors were unquestionably a tad on the muted side, however.

Ordered this on accident thinking I was getting the fin stout. Oops. It isn't bad for me hating wheat and fruit beers. Refreshing on a hot summer patio day. Draft at beer market. Blueberry and fruity wheat taste - not much more to say
