COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. The best thing about the beer is the aroma. It is intensely blueberry. The beer poured a strawberry blond color. A small white head dissipated rapidly. It had a decent lager taste, but with very little carbonation and almost no hop profile. If you can say it has a blueberry taste, it would be the sort of tanic aftertaste. It is not unpleasant. Not a bad beer. Fun to drink because of the aroma.

Blueberry oatmeal, fruit, wheat, ok, nothing great. The look is cloudy, thin to no head, deep golden in color. Better than I thought when heard blueberry beer.

Smells like a blueberry cereal on the nose or maybe a blueberry muffin, but the aroma is not especially intense. Light gold on the color with a dissipating white head. Barely medium bodied, high on drinkability and low on extracurricular flavors. Bready on the palate, clean finish but not super crisp. Very low to non existent bitterness. A very good beer to drink outdoors in the summer, and the aroma does stand out from other beers of this type.

Pours clear blonde with virtually no head. Nose is modest and all sweet fruit. Flavor is gentle citrus and strawberry with just a hint of grain on the backsid, aaccompanied by blueberry. almost nothing to the finish.

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
