Sweetwater Blue is a unique lighter style ale enhanced with a hint of fresh blueberry. When you drink this beer take a good whiff first and you’ll smell the blueberry influence, but on the taste it’s extremely subtle and the finish is extra clean. Ain’t no fruit beer, but it is our breakfast beer, usually folks that are looking to quench their thirst or for those that are new to the “good beer” lifestyle; this is their choice. This brew and the ESB were the original two to go through the tanks at SweetWater in February 1997.

The smell was skunky & it was way before the expiration. Color was nice golden blonde but the blueberry taste was like artificial kind found in cereal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ordybill (596) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Poured from a12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- slight hint of blueberries followed by a wheat backdrop Appearance- this beer is a clear golden color. A one inch white head that doesn’t stay long Taste- A definite taste of semi-sweet blueberries and wheat. Not a bad combo Palate- A mildly carbonated and slightly dry feel. Definitely a summer time brew Overall- an OK summer time brew, I really hoped that I would have enjoyed this more. It is brewed locally so I think I need to give it another try and see if I wasn’t giving it, its do.

ZacM612 (299) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Clear amber with very thin off-white head. Aroma is all blueberry...a bit much. Mostly a wheat beer flavor, but the blueberry aroma is too overpowering. Okay, for a fruit beer.

Traditional American wheat. Starts a little sweet with a noticeable blueberry flavor. Finishes citrusy and slightly tart. Not overly fruity. Very smooth silky mouth feel. Easy on the pallet.

BrettTaylor (636) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Poured as a taster at local bottle shop. Pours a light gold. Aromas of wheat and very subtle blueberry. Finishes clean and without a lot of blueberry taste, mostly just wheat. Okay, but nothing special.
