1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottled. A dark red with a pinkish head. The aroma is dominated by alcohol - like a pile of blueberries left in the sun too long so they’ve started fermenting - not very pleasant in my nose. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, metal from the alcohol, and blueberries - not good - try making a 5% version to get rid of the alcohol notes.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours a clear shocking dark red colour with a reddish head. Intense and fat - but also somewhat artificial - blueberry aroma. Medium body, very sweet blueberry notes with quite some alcohol in the finish. 060709

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle. This was a bad experience; although, it did begin well. The beer poured a lovely, red-blue pour with a strong, pink head. Nose of alcohol, sugar syrup and blueberries. Flavor was very sweet, like excessively sweetened fruit juice, and terrifically boozy, like vodka. There is no balance between the elements. Medium bodied with average carbonation and acutely boozy. I don’t know this beer needs to be jacked up to 8% abv. Who exactly are the makers trying to target with this product. Until this beer, I had never poured one out because I did not like it. (I once sinked a beer because it had gown bad.) But yeah, this Wild Blue was repulsive. I might recommend this beer as a shot, what with all the alcohol and horrendous flavor.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
A: The pour is a dark red-purple with a big pink colored head to go with it. Hey, looks just like Blabaer! Right...?
S: This is certainly a blueberry beer. It’s also one that smells more like a soda, and certainly has enough artificial character to make one thing this is a blend of all sorts of different chemical flavor and aroma compounds.
T: God is this beer sweet! This one pretty much tastes like sugar and blueberries (perhaps like blueberry syrup, extra syrup). Some definite alcohol notes too, and damn, not a surprise at 8%.
M: The body is light and this beer is terribly overcarbonated. You’ve got to love that scouring effect on your palate.
D: One word: diabeetus. This beer is beyond cloying and I don’t think there’s any way I could finish a bottle of this.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Yeah, this one really didn’t work for me. The aroma was all blueberry. The taste was also all blueberry, with an extremely sweet flavour. I’d have a hard time calling it anything but an alcopop. Yikes. Score justification: Unbalanced as hell, and too cloying to enjoy. Tasted GABF ’05.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Beautiful garnet color with a pink berry head which didn’t last long. Aroma seems a mix of blueberry and noble hop. Near medium body with fizzy carbonation. Flavor is berry, some of it is blueberry, and honey or sugar. I have no regret at having tried this. I think a bottle shared among 3 or 4 people having an appropriate dessert might work well. I sort of like it. I just can’t see drinking very much at one time. Some nice berry bitter notes towards the end. Much better than Pink Killer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Party Town. Pours clear deep reddish color with an average frothy white head that was mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate blueberry aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Medium fruity sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of an average duration. My expectations where met.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Has the look and feel of cranberry juice. Pleasant berry floral aroma is beer’s only saving grace (and why this wasn’t rated much lower). Tastes like a fruity malt liquor. Not good at all. Rated 8/8/08
