COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not suited for timid or reserved beer drinkers, Wild Blue’s defining taste characteristic is its kick of natural blueberry flavor. The Blue Dawg Brewing team carefully selected a blend of hops and barley malt to ensure they complemented and balanced Wild Blue’s dominant blueberry notes, resulting in a robust and aromatic beer with a refreshing, palate-cleansing finish. Wild Blue is brewed with a blend of German hops from the Hallertau region in Bavaria and classic Aroma hops from the Willamette Valley in the Pacific Northwest. A combination of two- and six-row barley malt also was chosen specifically for this recipe. Beer lovers will appreciate this specialty fruit-infused lager’s striking burgundy color, ripe blueberry aroma and its ability to stand up to the strongest of foods.

There is just to much of a juice since to this beer. I would also like a little more carbonation.

Bottle. Smells strongly of blueberry, and the taste follows. Looks like grape juice in the glass. Head is mostly carbonation, a reddish purple that fades quickly. It starts off with a basic lager flavor, which is quickly washed over with blueberry. I understand all the reasons beer snobs look down at this, but I enjoy it. It’s not a complex porter or IPA, but it has its place.

The low ratings don’t surprise me as this is a maligned style of beer on this site, but this is a very tasty drink. Has a dark purple color with a pinkish head, reminiscent of a blueberry. Smell and taste is sweet blueberry fruit. No hint of alcohol. Smooth and deceptively strong. Delicious.

A purple color. Almost like carbonated blueberry juice. Very delicious and not overly sweet.

Pours a strange purple color. Way too sweet. Hides alcohol well, Tastes like a fruity wine more than a beer. Drinkable, but not my type for sure.

No head. Color of grape crush. Tasted exactly like carbonated wine. I despise wine. Hated it 500%

Smells like cheap convenience store blueberry muffins or blueberry gum. Pours a really unnatural purplish red color. Initially sweet on the tongue then finishes with an artificial weird tang that won’t leave your palate. Disgusting.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2014 This beer is unrefined and just not very tasty. It has a weird-looking body and the aroma is like that of a bad, cheap wine. Blueberry flavors are overbearing and tart. In the end, this is a shitty lager that has been dressed up to look like a fruity bitch beer. If you’re offended by that statement, I’ll pretend to be referring to the (hopefully female) dog on the label. However, the 8% ABV probably has great appeal for frat boy types.

RJ815 (16) - Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Distinct purple color of blueberries and similar smell too. Sweet tasting, with no real trace of hops or any bitter flavors. As others have noted, for an 8% alcohol brew, you’d never know as the fruit flavors mask the fact that any alcohol is in it. Definitely more on the alcopop / cooler side of things in terms of taste, but if you’re fine with that then this beer may be just right for you.

Bottle. Dark reddish colour with a pink head. Aroma and flavour of sweet blueberries.
