on the back label:

“Walker’s Blueberry Wheat is made with a blend of wheat and barley malts with an infusion of pureed blueberries added during secondary fermentation. The result is a fresh, bright berry-coloured beer with a nice balance of malt sweetness and fruit acidity. Some of the blueberries come to us direct from a Mill St. family member’s farm.”

Ingredients: Water, malted barley, malted wheat, blueberry puree, hops.

Visual: (seasonal sampler 6-pack). Pours translucent reddish-purple with suspended sediment, almost barely any head, thin ringed retention, a few small bubbles of activity.

Nose: faint sour, grainy wheat malt, mild fruitiness. (lvl-3)-pungency

Attack: crisp-thin body entry

Mid-palate: tangy, faint sour, hints of puke, wheat malt, (lvl-3-sweetness), faint blueberry

Finish: weak body, a touch of palate roughness.

Summary: Barely any blueberry flavour nor prominent barley/wheat malt character. A mindless summer thirst quencher or meal beer, no depth at all.
