Poured a murky yellow, with an aroma of blueberry. Taste was tart with hint of blueberries. An enjoyable, balanced fuitbeer. Thanks to springslicker for this!

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
My low score was based on me almost vomiting after tasting this fetidly awful spit sink in a bottle. I kid you not, and I’m not the only one. I was in Atlanta for a hotel GM training, and I gave abottle to a fellow GM...who immediately ran over to a nearby bush and started retching. The only predominant flavor I can remember (since we tossed the entire 6-pack) was moldy wet cardboard. Stay far far away from this.

This beer was a pleasant surprise. My only experience with a fruity beer (not counting cider, a subdivision in its own rite) was the truly awful Sam Adams Cherry Wheat. Whoa! Bad stuff. So, yeah, this beer was great. Very unartificial aroma and taste. The blueberry taste is noticeable, but not overly strong. The wheatiness of the beer gently rises above the berry flavor. If beer is liquid bread, this is liquid blueberry muffins. Wow! Great stuff. Check it out if you have the chance (it’s on tap at The Grill in Southside Birmingham, AL, for all you Alabamians).

Hazy deep yellow. Crisp palate, sharp carbonation. Sweet and syrupy underlying malts. Nice flowery, spicy aroma. Mild bitterness surfaces briefly at the finish. Aftertaste is flowery and dry, with a hint of blueberry aroma. Overall, blueberry infusion is rather mild, and mostly just shows itself in the aroma. Never thought I'd say this, but the fruit should be a little more pronounced. It does blend well with the hops though.

This pours out a huge white head over a light hazy yellow body. The berry aroma is present, but not over powering. Lightly sweet flavor with an acidic touch from the fruit. Very light bodied. Needs to be more assertive.

Had this one ice cold from a bottle. Nice fruity aroma. Pleasantly surprised by the light taste. Not usually a fan of fruity beers which are usually too sweet. This one was very refreshing. Would definitely drink again.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured out crystal clear pale yellow similar to a pilsner. Faint aroma of blueberries. Tastes crisp and refreshing, but with a funky blueberry perfumy quality that is annoying. Also can taste grainy maltyness. Unfortunately they forgot to put much hops in here to create any semblance of balance. This is definitely the worst from Sweetwater I've had.

Pale, golden color, full foamy head...for about 30 seconds and then it dissolves readily. Smells like rich, sweet blueberries-but more like a candy flavoring than the real fruit. Aroma dissipates somewhat as it warms. Taste is different from the smell, however. I found the flavor almost devoid of the blueberries so easily detected in the aroma. As a fruit beer lover, I would not recommend this one...I am sure that an ale lover would find it refreshing, but I just found it slightly disappointing after such a lovely aroma.
