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.

This is definately a different taste, but is not too bad. It pours like grape juice and has a very sweet blueberry flavor. Don’t let the sweetness full you because a six pack of this stuff will put you out.

One-dimensional blueberry PopTart aroma - nice enough, but it was all downhill from there. Looks like a red wine spritzer - purple and fizzy. Bad label. The flavor wasn’t horrid, it just wasn’t beer. Tastes like fizzy, dilute, cheap red wine. Sugar attempts to cover the fotification, but it comes off unpleasantly boozy - like Wild Irish Rose, or other screw-cap wino wines. Clingy sweet, but medium light body. If you can’t find Boone’s Farm for your hippie friends, then I guess you could pick up a six of this. Actually, this was the same price and adjacent to Sweetwater Blue - do you really need a recommendation as to which blueberry brew to choose? Featured at the Bradfordville Petro.

Poured from bottle 4/2008. My bottle sez BlueDawg brewery, but looks like another A/B trick. Aroma is def wild blueberry. Looks ridiculous - kinda like Snapple Grape drink with a light purple head. Flavor?? This is a ’malt beverage’. They amped up the alcohol, so the pre 21 crowd will love this stuff. Drink it if you aren’t in the mood for beer.

Clear maroon red pour with a super pink head. Smell is alcohol, blueberries, and more alcohol. Smells like a combo of cheap gin and stale blueberry pies. Flavor is sweet alcohol and sweet generic fruit flavor. It tastes like a watered down mixed drink served at a sorority party. Thin and bubbly - you just can’t ask for anything more!

Smelled nice, very strongly of blueberry. Downhill from that point onward. My complaints are the same as everyone else’s. Too juicy, not enough of a beer to really call beer.

I was able to try this one out at Busch Gardens before they gave it a go at the shelves. Wild blue seems to be more of a wine cooler type beverage as opposed to a traditional beer. The blueberry aroma is extremely faint. The flavor? Sugar sweet and quite acidic. Actually, I tasted more grape than blueberry in this "beer", indicating poor choice of artificial blueberry flavoring. Almost no hops in this drop. "Palate-cleansing finish" indeed, as there is virtually no finish at all. Great for 21 year old girls on their birthday.

WillieV (197) - Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2008
Bottle: A very interesting deep red pour with a thin light pink head to it. Scent is very sweet. Not a beer by any means. Taste is of a mild sweet red wine.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2008 Pours a red/purple color with kind of a small pink head. Smell is fruity and smells like a sweet fruit wine. Pretty sweet with an imitation blueberry flavor. The alcohol is very well hidden and I only caught some of it at the very end. I see this beer being popular to the ladies and to guys that are trying to get the ladies intoxicated

This poured a very odd color, one I had never seen in a beer before. Reminded me of the "No Reservations, Singapore, with the bright red bone marrow". A unnatural color made natural. I also love the "natural blueberry sediment maybe found in this product." Which may include anything that got past the filter. Beer poured a artificial reddish purple color with an equally odd colored head. A blueberry aroma but more of a Hostess muffin aroma. This is just a weird beer.
