2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

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.

It is what it is and it had to be conquered. It’s extreme blackberry in a lager form.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle from Wegman’s King of Prussia, PA. Raspberry red with a thin pink head and lively carbonation, fruity aroma - presumably blackberry with some underlying malt to show that there is some beer in there somewhere; surprisingly full bodied, with quite a weight to it, the taste is really sweet and grainy; unfortunately then alcohol then hits the back of the throat like petroleum spirit, making it more like a cheap alcopop. Worth a try - but only once.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Just as horrible as Wild Red. Pours almost purple with a small reddish head. Aroma and flavors of horribly sweet artificial blackberry and low grade alcohol. Drain pour for sure.
