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.

It’s alcoholic fruit juice, yuck! No head. Lite lacing. Bright red in color. 8% alcohol is about the only positive thing about it. The taste is an acidic sour mess. Stay away.

There’s really not much to say here. Pours a purple/blue with fizzy pink head. Flavors are sweet blueberries (artificial) and alcohol. Thats all.

Tastes like soda pop...blueberry fanta or some shit. Nothing like lager...Alcoholic blueberry soda...Not really a good thing...Probably made like other alcopops...

I have been longing to try a blueberry beer for some time. Naturally, when I saw what looked to be a microbrewed beauty I snatched a six pack right up. As I poured this "beer" it became quite apparent that I wasn’t dealing with beer at all, rather a wine cooler. I also soon learned that this Blue Dawg brewery had conned me, for it was A-B that concocted this atrocity. Horrendous beverage. Avoid at all costs. The absolute ONLY plus is the high alcohol content that is not noticeable in the flavor. Hey... Anheuser Busch...am I wearing lipstick...I want to look pretty while i’m getting F%$#ed by you.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2008 Bottle from BevMo. Dark purple in color. Fruity aroma. Tastes like a strong alcopop or whatnot. Pretty easy to drink for it’s strength. Very easy to guzzle a few. I couldn’t notice any alcohol.

12 oz. Clear, dark red-purple grape color with a large head that mostly flits away. Aroma is blueberry-grape juice. Flavor is artificial grape-blueberry juice, with some light hops to give a slight metallic balance to the sweet-alcohol harshness. Light-medium body is tingly, and somehow syrupy and dryish at the same time. Got to hand it to A-B, they keep coming up with sneaky ways to steal into the handcrafted brewer’s sales arena. They fooled me (again!), with the faux Blue Dawg brewery front-group on the label and no mention of A-B.

RSRIZZO (1871) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2008
Aroma is a big bright blueberry scent. Color is a deep ruby red with a pink head that dissipates quick leavening it with thin but tight. Taste is a bit disappointing. Starting with a light body it goes down crisp and easy. Finish is thin with a light sweetness that has mild blueberry tones then a distinct Bud like hop taste. At first the after taste seemed clean with the alcohol hidden well and a tart berry taste lingering, but after a few sips the alcohol starts to show. It has a great aroma and is beautiful looking brew but then it goes and taste like Bud with blueberry juice and Everclear mixed in. Its too bad I thought this was going too be a good brew.

No aroma. No hop profile. No malt character. It is purple. Tastes like Boones Farm. Finish is alcohol with bluberry. Not good. Cool bottle cap, though.

I hate blueberries. Were it not for the linear thinking sales tool who dropped this off for me to "consider" I never would have tried this. I am now on a mission to smite him. Looks like foamy blood, smells like blueberries and ass, tastes worse. But then again, I’m jaded against blueberries
