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.

Maybe its just my inexperience but fruit & beer never seem to compliment each other. This was leaps and bounds above some of the other fruit beers ive tried (namely sam adams cherry wheat) but still undrinkable. The initial taste isnt bad and reminded me of blueberry pancakes but that sensation gets old quick and turns sickingly sweet & syrupy.

Great beer for a refreshing taste. Do not pretend to be anything different than it is. Taste like nothing you have ever had before!

Bottle. Red with a half finger pink head. Smells of the blueberry. The taste is too cloying, can't really drink it. Has a very artificial taste. The palate is fair. Too sweet and I don't think about having it again! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a rosy red with a thick pink head. Smells of blueberries. Taste is all blueberries with a bit alcohol bitterness. This was really a strange one for me. It’s kind of sweet and yet bitter on the backend. Interesting.

Pleasant blueberry taste. Pours deep purple with small lavender head. Not as strong as the ABV would suggest. No bite. Very sweet. I would drink this again.

When poured it looks like a deep purple wine with a sweet smell of fruits. Tastes of almost a purple pez with zero bitterness. Great beer if your only going to have one or two

There is just to much of a juice since to this beer. I would also like a little more carbonation.

Bottle. Smells strongly of blueberry, and the taste follows. Looks like grape juice in the glass. Head is mostly carbonation, a reddish purple that fades quickly. It starts off with a basic lager flavor, which is quickly washed over with blueberry. I understand all the reasons beer snobs look down at this, but I enjoy it. It’s not a complex porter or IPA, but it has its place.

The low ratings don’t surprise me as this is a maligned style of beer on this site, but this is a very tasty drink. Has a dark purple color with a pinkish head, reminiscent of a blueberry. Smell and taste is sweet blueberry fruit. No hint of alcohol. Smooth and deceptively strong. Delicious.

A purple color. Almost like carbonated blueberry juice. Very delicious and not overly sweet.

Pours a strange purple color. Way too sweet. Hides alcohol well, Tastes like a fruity wine more than a beer. Drinkable, but not my type for sure.
