Put a little butter in this one and call it a muffin....albeit a pretty damn refreshing muffin... I poured this Maine offering into my hefe glass to find a crisp, clear looking golden ale with a nice ultra white cloudy head (it did not have that unfiltered haze that you find in a lot of wheats). The smell was actually fairly mild, with hints of dried wheat and blueberries carrying most of the workload. The taste of blueberries is present, but not overwhelmingly sweet by any means. The light malt and mild hoppy finish make this beer well balanced. This wheat ale had a very light mouth feel, making it a great summer or session option. This beer paired great with grilled western style burgers (BBQ sauce, cheddar, onion rings etc... )and BBQ chicken. Donít think for a second though, that this beer wonít make a Sunday morning football breakfast or two. Some scrambled eggs with cream cheese and chives, sliced ham, and a blueberry brew. Enjoy.

As soon as I opened the bottle I was hit with a wave of blueberry extract aroma. I have a had a few blueberry beers, some good, some not so good, and this one falls into the latter. It has a very fake blueberry popsicle sort of flavor that isnít too pleasing. Maybe on a hot summers day I could enjoy one, but until then, I think iíll pass.

Bottle - Sweet blueberry jam and liquor. Clear orange gold with a decent white head. Blueberries and some syrup. Pretty artificial and sweet, surely nice for those who donít like beer.

Golden ale con poca schiuma. Aroma di grano e soprattutto fragole e lamponi, che puntualmente ai ripropongono in bocca, rendendo la birra una big bubble liquida. Stucchevole il sapore dopo un poí, e nonostante la birra sia beverina la cosa la penalizza. Niente di trascendentale.

Aroma out of the bottle is fresh blueberries but it fades to a kind of funky wheat smell. Nice flavour, decent wheat profile and some fresh muddled blueberry flavours.

Nice refreshing flavor, good for summer nights and beach parties. Otherwise, just a regular ale with flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I try not to be rude when I do reviews, but seriously, I donít know why the hell I even bothered trying this. As soon as I poured it, I could smell that fake blueberry waft to my nostrils. Smells like a crappy blueberry pie. Flavor is sweet, blueberry, tart, and cringe worthy after taste. Yuck. Looks like crap macro lager and tastes just as bad.

Transfer from BA review on 4-13-14- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance Ė 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 Ė As may be expected, the beerís 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 Ė 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 Ė 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 Ė 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.
