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.

Medals: Bronze medal winner at the 1998 World Beer Cup, Fruit Beer category; Always the funky favorite at any outdoor beer festival

Bottle courtesy of Markwise in the latest locals swap. Pours a faintly hazed gold with a thin white head. Very sweet blueberry candy on the nose. Medium bodied, soft grain and wheat, a touch of blueberry. Comes across like every mediocre brewpubs fruit flavored wheat beer. Doesn’t taste of much, smells of artificial flavors and is mostly forgettable. Drinkable, but not really worth the time.

For a blonde kolsch style it’s great. Light and simple. The blueberries are real, not fake. Smell like you are trying to mash them in your fingers. The taste is light, not sweet. Pale yellow. Tap

Yellow pour, white head. Aroma lets you know that this is a wheat/fruit ale. Light on carbonation, hints of fuity pebbles.

Pale clear golden with a small whitish head. Aroma of blueberry and light grain. Taste is grain with just the right amount of sweetness. Light bodied. Pretty good for what it is.

스윗워터 브루 - 스윗워터 블루 4.8% ABV 블루베리가 첨가된 녀석으로 친구의 추천으로 구입. 딱 예상대로의 맛으로, 맥주의 맛을 저해하지 않는 선까지만 자연스런 블루베리를 드러내는 레시피는 제법 인상적 https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

Picked up a bottle from the camp store, while camping in Tennessee. A good summer beer that is easy drinking with just a touch of blueberry. The blueberry is so subtle, hard to call it a fruit beer. More like a light beer with a hint of blueberry. I would definitely get this again.

Back porch, preheating charcoal for huge burgers. For what it is, it's a great beer. Tastes like it's supposed to. Would I buy it again? Yes. Do I want this with a fat burger? No. But it's nice to sip on while hanging around the house. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft pour. White head. Blueberry bud light would be a good analogy. It's pretty good though
