3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ Brewpub: Hazy orange, light head and lacing. Nose of starchy wheat and citrusy hops along with the typical blueberry notes. The flavor is very tangy and bitter from the hops, has plenty of blueberry extract in it. The finish is average, moderate body and a tangy mouthfeel. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy gold color with a thin head. Aroma of a basket of blueberries. Dry wheat flavor with a very bitter blueberry finish. Not sickly sweet like many brewpub summer fruit beers. Not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Beautiful nose of freshly picked blueberries. No cloying sweetness. Just blueberry goodness. Quite dry flavor given the sweet nose with only a hint of blueberries. Finishes kinda bready and dry. Very refreshing, though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Hazy bright orange with wispy head. Strong dried blueberry fruit aroma. Strong, grain taste in the body with the same fruit flavor. Mildly bitter aftertaste but a smooth finish. This was incredibly refreshing after a 12 mile bike ride on a 90+ degree Minneapolis afternoon and might deserve a lower palate rating, but damn this thing tasted good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On-tap at the brewpub: Pale medium dark gold cast in unfiltered haze. Starchy, bold, stacked tall, white capping stays put for good length. Tons of lacing coats the glass as its consumed.
Aroma is wafty and floral with a sweetly touch of wheat and a wonderful full-on blueberry roundness. A bit like a blueberry muffin taken out of a cold fridge. Gains more muted, pale wheaty frothy bread tones as it warms, but always keeping the blueberry forward.
Taste is full and bold with a frothy whole wheat breadyness thatís excellently paled in sweetness and drenched is a simple and elegant touch of blueberry. Smooth and very well-rounded. Incredibly balanced in sweetness and blueberry fun. The taste lingers well with a slight earthy flowery and tender fruit skin dryness as it finishes, yet staying bold, creamy, and wet through its duration. This isnít some simple wheat ale with some artificial flavoring added in. Nor do they throw a coulpe blueberries in it to try to help it. None needed here. This was brewed with real blueberries, and alot of them. And it shows...and its very good.
Feel is tender, soft, bready, smooth, and kinda crunchy in carbonation with the wheat malt backing it up. Medium in body and quite full in flavor as it floods in and makes a wonderful display of wheaty, bready sweetness balanced with a blueberry brigade of floral fruityness.
Growler upon growler of this stuff can be easily handled as its very tasty and very drinkable. So smooth and quenchable with unforgiving sweetly fun fruity flavors. Hands down, the best damn blueberry beer Iíve ever had. Great stuff!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light straw, some red and orange, good sized soft white head with no staying power. Typical american wheat taste and aroma with hints of blueberry. The blueberry wasnít as pronounced as I expected. Quaffable and light minimal hops. Dusty wheat with some blueberry.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy, deep amber hue, full, flush snow-powder white head. Nice.
Aroma: Sweet and fruity, definitely the blueberries coming through, but not at all dominant, itís mainly a hint, but a persistent hint. Nice, nice.
Taste: Fresh, and buoyant, bubbling fruit, refreshing wheat. Medium bodied, nearly full, great wheaty texture...I canít fault this one, anyhow, though it falls in with others of itís style and doesnít really grab you, just delights and refreshess. So easy to drink, yet not a "wow"-er. And so it goes...
If there werenít so many other great beers available here, Iíd go monkey-poo over it...so sad, eh?...
