Walker’s Blueberry Wheat – Mill St. Brewery, 5% ABV, 355ml., (Toronto, ON, Canada)
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.
- Style: (flavoured – blueberry) Wheat Ale
- Taste: Weak thin crisp light sweet plain wheat/barley malt faint blueberry
- Where I got it : Legacy Liquor / Vancouver
- How much: $15 CAD (after 10% off) – 6 x 355ml-ish., September 2012
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: NO
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.
