Last can from a four pack purchased at BJs Liquors.
Pour opaque/murky purple with a huge amount of light purple foam. Retention is fantastic, leaving sporadic, sticky purple lacing in it's wake.
Aroma is a brash hit of blueberry, immediately and overwhelming. Lactose and vanilla dance with the blueberries to give a blueberry pie/yogurt scent. The hops are there but indistinguishable on their own, they add an odd scent that doesn't due justice to the beer.
The taste follows the nose: big of blueberry with friends in lactose and vanilla. Once again the hop profile is indistinguishable and a difficult sensory perception. Finishes oddly but with blueberries.
Medium body, maybe thicker but, oddly, finishes thin. Medium carbonation. Dries the palate even with all the fruit.
No offense, but this is an awful beer! Mix in the price point and the beer is extremely worse. This reminds me of grape soda that I used to drink by the gallon back in the day but cannot stand as an adult. Trying to finish a four pack of this beer was difficult. Do I get a gold star? Enjoy!

We took our Chantilly base and added over a ton of blueberries - seriously, we added over 2,500 pounds of blueberries! Along with all the blueberries we added the usual vanilla, lactose, and Mosaic hops.
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
