COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not suited for timid or reserved beer drinkers, Wild Blueís 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 Blueís 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 lagerís striking burgundy color, ripe blueberry aroma and its ability to stand up to the strongest of foods.

Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2009
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 theyíve 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.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2009
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

Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2005
Yeah, this one really didnít work for me. The aroma was all blueberry. The taste was also all blueberry, with an extremely sweet flavour. Iíd have a hard time calling it anything but an alcopop. Yikes. Score justification: Unbalanced as hell, and too cloying to enjoy. Tasted GABF í05.

bhensonb (10905) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 20, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Beautiful garnet color with a pink berry head which didnít 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 canít see drinking very much at one time. Some nice berry bitter notes towards the end. Much better than Pink Killer.

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. Itís 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. Youíve got to love that scouring effect on your palate. D: One word: diabeetus. This beer is beyond cloying and I donít think thereís any way I could finish a bottle of this.

Leighton (10683) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2010
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 donít 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.
