2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ugh....AB tricked me into this one. Nowhere on the label does it mention this is an AB product. Pours a reddish-purple color with a foamy, pink head. Looks nice enough, leaving random snake-like lacing on the glass. The aroma is dominated by sweet blueberry syrup, which seems to dominant anything else that might be underlying. The flavor follows suit, as if a pale lager had been mixed with artificial blueberries. Watery body. Smooth enough but too sweet and artificial tasting. Hey, it beats the hell out of Budweiser, but its still pretty bad.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks to lb4lb for hooking me up with this, my most wanted beer!!!
Pours like cranberry juice with a bright pink head. Pretty strange looking, and artificial. Smell is metallic blueberries. Taste is sweet corn like maltiness mixed with blueberry syrup. Slight touch of alcohol coming through in the flavor. Medium bodied from the syrupy nature of it. Very sweet and artificial but with some beer maltiness in there too. Hmm... More like a mixed drink than a fruit beer. Not very subtle, but hell, it one of them is drinkable, I guess.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a rich, lush, and straight-to-the-point blueberry juice blue/purple with a head of the aforementioned color. Aroma is freshly mashed blueberries and more blueberries, with a slight addition of hoppy flowers. Flavor is cheap red wine; strawberry, mango, sweet blueberry. Cheap wine. Thick mouthfeel. All in all, I canít fault this beer for trying.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Purple like a wine cooler. flavored malt liquor aroma, again like the cheap wine coolers my mom had when i was 12. one sip is enough. thereís no hint or character of malt or anything beer, plenty of fruit flavor, mild alcohol kick, and dry finish. tastes like fantastic cough syrup or just another flavored zima. however, a bit of a rating bump for being natural.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle Pours out a sort or purple with almost no head. A sweet aroma of berry. Tast was very sweet the blue berrys were all over this one. I was not very happy that Anheuser-Busch tricked me with a New York Big Dawg Brewing lable. Damb them!!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a Purple?? with a small purple head. Aroma of blueberries and malt. Tastes like blueberry kool aid with carbonation meets wine cooler, this really isnít that bad but I donít even feel like iím drinking beer. To itís credit it does hide the 8% alcohol rather well.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single bottle from Total Wine in Jacksonville. Bottle smells of blueberry from the moment it is open. Pours an almost grape juice color with a matching grape head. Taste is blueberries and ale, but no alcohol burn to match the advertised 8%. Beer snobs might think this beer is wine in disguise, I think it is a nice drinkable beer that is a nice change of page.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2008 Mmm, another stealthie. Bottle [turned out to be my 700th rating from America]. Blueberry aroma, reasonably natural-smelling, with a slight hint of maple syrup in there. Pretty ruby pour with a bright dark pink head. Taste is sweet, and overly so, but not quite cloying, actually somewhat drinkable. Blueberry tones are strong and, again, not artificial. Strongly fruity with light bitterness and alcohol, a touch of dusty malt and cardboard, but not enough to ruin the experience. Maple syrup, also in the feel. Not really all that repulsive, as others have stated, but still, I found it hard to finish the 3/4 of the bottle I did drink. Have to hand it to these guys - theyíve made a passable wine cooler!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Was shocked to find out this was a AB product. Purple fizzy pour. Aroma of Blueberries/berries. Flavor is a combo of fizzy table wine and blueberry syrup.Has a semi sweet finish. Couldnít drink more than one but I could see downing one with some blueberry waffles. Not too shabby.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2008 Bottle. Pours a purple color with almost no head. Aroma of sugar and blueberries. Tastes fizzy sweet reminds me of kool aid. Flavor of artificial blueberry with a light carbonation. More like a wine cooler to me.
