Cloudy gold with a thin head that leaves quickly. No lacing really. It smells exacly like instant blueberry pancakes. The flavor is mostly blueberries but there is some hops. Not much else. Malty palate and a berry finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), with a note of blueberry and boysenberry. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. A freebie gotten in a trade, and, well...whaddya want for free?! Just kidding. Maybe the first blueberry beer I’ve had, not sure. Not terrible. But it’s just some blueberry flavoring dumped in a flimsy American wheat beer, really. It ain’t no New Glarus fruit beer, dat’s fo’ sho’.

yellow colored pour with a thin white head. smells like blueberries, and as much as i was going to deny it, i was actually impressed with this beer. it was refreshing and sweet at the same time. not something i would want to drink alot of, but it sure did the trick. sampled at brewgrass 04

Strange plastic aroma. Jay said it was like a Rainbow Bright Doll. How does he know this??? I had a younger sister and it reminded me of her Little Pony Toys, or even Strawberry Shortcake. Some wierd plasticy nose. The body was thin and it had a drying finish, but that taste was so strange and fake.

Blueberry? Tasted like sucking on a Rainbow Bright platic doll. Only the slightest hints of blueberry mixed with a terrible rotten bitterness.

For a Blueberry beer is was extremely good. I enjoyed every last drop of it. It was interesting to find out that it was Freddy and Kevin’s first beer. Two thumbs up.

bottle-pours golden yellow hue with minimal white head that was gone in an instant. lots of blueberry on the aroma-some grassy notes of hay and noble hops. I have never had a beer like this. definately unique and worthy of a sample!

I really liked this one. Sweetwater is a good brewer and this is a crisp, clean taste. I love the blueberries. I think my liver needs a break for a while though...
