When I uncapped this golden ale, I got a strong whiff of BooBerry cereal, a "pleasure" I have had only once but still dream about occasionally. Somewhat thin, the wheat is almost detectable beneath the sugary blueberry taste. The finish was like candy, stale nuts, and tin. Not one I’ll be repeating.

Bottle: Blueberry aroma that’s somewhat artificial, but smells decent anyways. Pours a transparent golden-orange with a white ring for a head. Watery wheat flavor up front with a water grassy blueberry finish. Second blueberry beer in a row with a grassiness that just seems out of place.

Poured a very clear amber..minimal whitish head. Lotsa grain in the nose with the expected blueberry scent. Thin bodied, weak malts mixed with artificial blue-fruitberry flavor...kinda not so good. Wow, to think the raspberry version is up next. Sheesh.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2006 Smells of blueberries and wheat. Pours light gold, small head. Tastes like blueberry waffles. Leaves a nicey waffle aftertaste. re-review: Just not much going on here, very thin.

I must admit, I’m extremely biased towards this beer because it tastes like blueberries, the greatest edible thing ever. Pours a fairly light gold, decent thin head. Aroma is wild blueberries (awesome!), and mild wheat malts. Flavor is initially just blueberry, giving way to a suprising full malty flavor, wheaty and warm. Not too many hops here, just solid tastiness. Mmmmmmm...

This was one of the better fruit beers and better blueberry ales that I have tried. This would be perfect for a spring or summer day to quench a thirst. Give it a try.

A good "summer time" beer. Tastes best very cold. A light crisp refreshing beer. My wife who does not drink a lot of beer "because of the taste" remarked that she liked the flavor and could drink this beer.

I may have corrupted this review by drinking my homebrewed house amber before this. Wish it tasted as good as it smelled. Would have thought it was a lager by its body and crispness, not sure where the wheat is. Would be a nice summer beer by the pool. I prefer the sweetwater blueberry from what I remember. Picked this up in a self mixed six pack at Midtown Beer and Liqor in Nashville.

Not much to this. Light wheaty beer with a hint of blueberries in the taste. Wish it tasted more like it smelled with more in yer face blueberry. Good but coulda been much better.

Clear light gold, small, quickly vanishing, white head. Blueberry aroma right off the bat, followed by yeasty bread. LIght body, a little fizzy. Sweet malt and the blueberries lead to a sour finish. Would be better on a hot August day. Not my cup of tea, or glass of beer for that matter.
