From a bottle poured a ruby color with a small amount of head. Bitter syrupy raspberry flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear brilliant ruby red-purple with a purple-white head that falls after a minute. Aroma is very berry, along with a whiff of vomit. Taste is sweet and bordering on cloying; wish there was some tartness here. Tastes pretty boozy. Thin bodied. This is probably the worst one yet of these weird fruit beers by AB-InBev. Drinkable, though.

Bottle. Purple in color with a short, light purple head. Aroma is super sweet and smells like candy with blackberry jelly. Taste is also rather sweet with strong fruity candy notes and lots of blackberry jelly. Body is light-medium and has strong carbonation with lots of sugary stickiness. Ends the way it began - candied fruit and blackberry jelly. Yeah, this really isn’t a beer but is more of a dessert. Either way it’s easy to drink and isn’t horrible despite the reviews.

I dont like fruit beverages of any kind, so why did i have this? friend had a bunch in his fridge thinking the high alcohol content would make it worth it. smells very artificial, literally tastes like carbonated juice. No beer flavor whatsoever. This is not beer, and maybe unfair for me to rate, but it sucked. dont bother

As a total copout, I’m going to be posting essentially the same review for all 3 of the “Wild + Color” series beers because they’re all basically the same.

Wild Blue tastes and smells like artifical blackberry syrup. There are no distinguishable hops or malt tastes because the sugary, syrupy sweetness is completely overwhelming. This is high-powered, boozy, and synthetic. If that’s your jam, go for it.

By the way, I don’t like how they’ve used a dog theme and a similar font as Flying Dog in a transparent attempt to trick buyers into this stuff.

Bottle at Mandalay. Sweet fruity flavor. Redish color with brown notes, light pink head. Distinct taste if blackberry, very sweet almost no bitterness. A special but nice lager. Bolton Brew Rocks !!

This smells a bit fruity and has a blackish color. The flavor, while fruity, definitely has a strong flavor of alcohol and is quite sweet. Not that good.

I think it tastes like a grape lollipop.my wife says dimetapp cough medicine.only complimentary thing I can come up with is it hides the 8% well.

Pours a deep redish purple with a purple tinted head. This beer has a nice sweet blackberry taste and is slightly bitter. The high alcohol taste comes out.
