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.

thought this was some brewer I just never heard of.... SUCKER! it’s AB/InBev! they suck so bad they have to pretend they’re not AB and trick people into trying thier awful beers. my fault, I guess. body is glowing bright pink like beet juice, head is thin foamy pink. aroma like fake blueberries. flavor like artificial blueberries, freeze-dried sweetened blueberries at best. also some cloying alcohol sweetness like mad dog/night train/bad cheap wine. pisser!

Wild Blue Lager has a medium, fizzy, pink head, which maintains itself much longer that one would expect, a clear, ruby-red, bubbly appearance, and splotchy lacing. Aroma is of grainy, pungent lager beer and acidic blueberry juice. Taste is the same, with essentially no noticeable bitterness, but definite fruit acidity. Mouthfeel is heavy, slick, and filling, and Wild Blue Lager finishes wet, sweet, and heavy. Not a beer for me, but still well-crafted and executed. RJT

I can’t say this is as bad as everyone says... but you have to be okay with artificial flavors. This is a good beer for the non beer drinker who likes a splenda like blueberry experience. Hide the beer drink the coolaid.

"i’m glad i didn’t shell out for a six pack as i was thinking of doing. had a bit someone else’s while watching the Superbowl, and all i can say is this was quite gross. While i thought 8% abv would be a good thing, it just made this a strong gross beer instead of a more subtle one. Oh well, never again... ok, i lied...one year later i tried again. still not great, but fresher. blueberry likely being my least favorite fruit in beer. i bumped up the score a couple tenths..."

The quintessential chemical fruit beer. Overly sweet and strange looking to boot.

Transfer from BA review on 9-13-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a quite ruby purple color with a one finger purple tinted head floating atop the beer upon pouring. The head is quite fizzy and fades quite rapidly, leaving almost no lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is big and sweet of a blueberry smell. This aroma largely dominates the smell, but some other light aromas of candy like smell mixed with a bit of a sour berry and cherry smell are there as well. Overall it smells like berry kool-aid. Taste – The taste begins with a sweet berry flavor of blueberry mixed with a bit of raspberry and cherry. Along with these sweet flavors are some light tastes of malt. As the taste advances from the initial, it gets even sweeter and more berry candied flavored. With a little bit of an alcohol flavor coming to the tongue at the end, a very sweet berry flavor is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin for a brew of 8 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are rather appropriate for the very sweet and berry flavors of the brew. Overall – While massively sweet, the flavors are not all that off. It tastes kinda like a berry flavored wine cooler. If you want an alcoholic dessert in a liquid form then this is alright, but if don’t want anything very sweet, then you may want to stay away.

[5731-20130823] 12floz bottle. Red Twizzlers and blueberry juice aroma. Clear, bright red body with a quick foamy light pink head. Blueberry juicy flavour. Medium body is only mildly boozy. A fruity cooler. (7/3/6/3/12) 3.1

Maroon color with an unbeer like purple head. Nose of booberry cereal. Too sweet, with white sugar and artificial blueberry syrup flavors. Makes my teeth hurt.

This is about the only "fruit beer" I would drink. Not a fan of blueberry, which may slightly make this beer rated worse than it should be, but it DOES have a great and decently complex taste. It is sweet, but not too sweet, and doesn’t have much head to it.
