3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
My first Sweetwater brew. Tackle Box retrieved from Wine World in Panama City Beach, FL on a family vacation. [A] Smells like a blueberry snack cake. Or something around those lines. Some pale and grainy malt whiffs. Not offensive, for a fruit beer. Simple. Delightfully sweet. [A] A very pale yellow with a fizzy white head into glass. [F] Flavor is pretty simple, too. Pale malts. Biscuity. Bueberry is really subdued, which is a great thing to me. Sweetness hangs around. Nothing rancid. [P] Light mouthfeel. Not a big hop bitter, but enough crisp to keep my interest. Decent carbonation. Drinkable. [O] I despise most fruit beers. Haven’t tried a whole lot, because the ones I HAVE tried, totally suck. But this was a nice balance. Would probably make a nice intro to micros. Great summery brew. Beat’s the shyt out of Berry Weiss. Nothing to rave about, but I’ll give it some credit for NOT being the total disappointment I had expected.

Clear golden-yellow, no head. Aroma of grainy blueberry muffin. Flavor much the same with some crisp strawberries. Blueberries come out in the aftertaste....summery, but nothing special.

$1.80 bottle, Wine Warehouse. Pours very pale golden with only a dusting of a head. Aroma of blueberry, but smells candied and artificial, grasses, and bread. Taste is blueberry wheat. Not bitter, but not really sweet. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2015 BJCP Category: 29A Fruit Beer
AROMA: Authentic blueberry aroma. Sweet but not cloying. Some wheat presence. 9/12
APPEARANCE: Golden, mostly clear. White soapy head fades quickly. 1/3
FLAVOR: Familiar blueberry wheat ale palette, though more authentic-tasting than most. Wheat composition is noticeable; slight cracker flavor. Blueberry emerges on finish for sweetness, though slight dry bitterness is also present. Enjoyable for non-fauxness. 14/20
MOUTHFEEL: Light, crisp and refreshing with little to no aftertaste. Ideal summer beer, but should be in a can rather than bottle. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: A little more authentic than most fruity wheat beers. Impressive considering the low ABV. Overtly pedestrian but forgivable. 7/10
TOTAL SCORE: 35/50

Pours a hazy golden yellow color. Aromas of wheat bread and berries. Flavor is sweet berry and a little yeasty. Flavor is to sweet for me, didn’t care for this at all.

Blueberry oatmeal, fruit, wheat, ok, nothing great. The look is cloudy, thin to no head, deep golden in color. Better than I thought when heard blueberry beer.

Smells like a blueberry cereal on the nose or maybe a blueberry muffin, but the aroma is not especially intense. Light gold on the color with a dissipating white head. Barely medium bodied, high on drinkability and low on extracurricular flavors. Bready on the palate, clean finish but not super crisp. Very low to non existent bitterness. A very good beer to drink outdoors in the summer, and the aroma does stand out from other beers of this type.
