Well, this one will be quick: It's a blueberry shandy.

In all seriousness, this is a decent beer. It pours a hazy gold with a sparse white head, and the aroma is all "blueberry." It's in quotes because it comes across as artificial.  

The flavor is all tart berries with a slight cereal background note that's refreshing enough, but kind of dull. The body is light, and the overall impression is that it's a bit diluted or watery.  

Good enough for what it is, but it comes across more as a hard blueberry soda than a blueberry beer.
