DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Bottle from Blue Dog. Pours turbid, merlot colored with fizzy pink head. Nose is earthy blackberry and red wine grapes. Tastes very sweet, with notes if blackberry, grape juice, and an odd finishing flavor. Light alcopoppy palate that isn’t complex.

Bottle. Blackberry and alcohol aroma. Purple color with mauve head. Very sweet blackberry flavor with moderate alcohol finish. Tastes like a generic fruit soda with cheap vodka added. Not as horrendous as the Wild Blue.

hotstuff (4072) - Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Rated on 5-06-2014 (Bottle) This beer has a smooth pink head with a long retention, transparent reddish body, fizzy, lively, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is heavy artificial berries, sweet and tart. The flavor is artificial berries, very sweet, lightly sour, and lightly bitter. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light bodied. The flavor of this beer is yucky tasting. Too artificial and it is a beer I do not recommend.

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.

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 @ home. Just another pos that I have to clean out of girlfriend’s fridge before I leave for Europe. What a gem. Deep purple appearance with a lavender head. Aroma is half purple stuff and half grape drank. Really smells like koolaid. Blackberry, grape juice, cough syrup flavor. Fucked up shit. I’ve had better mixed purple drinks in the dorm as a freshman.
