“A clas­sic Amer­i­can wheat with a blue­berry kick.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Blue­berry muf­fin, which is em­pha­sized by a slight but­tery fla­vor and bready wheat malt—like a pat of but­ter on the muf­fin. The blue­ber­ries are sub­tle but rec­og­niz­able. Ad­di­tional fruity es­ters, dis­tinct from the blue­ber­ries, bring forth notes of cherry and bub­blegum. The beer it­self is a bit bready, with soft wheat and malt, as well as notes of vanilla, nut­ti­ness, and marsh­mal­low.” Fla­vor: “The fla­vor pro­ceeds di­rectly from the aroma. But where the aroma in­di­cated a rich muf­fin, this is more of a scone, or a muf­fin with­out the but­ter. A smooth, rich blend of blue­berry and wheat, with hints of vanilla cashew. A hint of sweet­ness that fades into a re­strained bit­ter­ness that lingers into a dry fin­ish.” Over­all: “The aroma is sub­tle but there’s also a rich­ness to it that adds some com­plex­ity. It tastes like break­fast. And the nut­ti­ness was in­ter­est­ing, like cashews, or a bowl­ful of Wheaties with blue­ber­ries thrown in.”
