3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
We had this beer at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in Biloxi, MS. This line is a lot like pop, or soda, if you will. The raspberry was Rob’s favorite. It was definitely the most sour and tart. Pours bright reddish pink.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle for The BeerHive in Pittsburgh. My bottle had a really foul taste, akin to being skunked, although I think it must have just been the native ingredients coming through. Wouldn’t recommend this to anyone’s tastes.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 ounce bottle from Wegman’s Leesburg. This kinda scares me. Pours a sickly pink color with a large fizzy pink head. Below average head retention. Aroma of tart raspberries and absolutely nothing else. The taste is sweet raspberries. Nothing else. Sickly sweet. They say there’s spice in here, but I’m not buying it. Dreck, this is. And I’ve got Wild Black on deck. Yippee! Not.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of finely sized purple red colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated purple hued colored body. The mild aroma was of strong raspberry. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of strong raspberry. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Aroma was basically raspberry or some kind of fruit berry smell. Poured red but the head was pink. Real men don’t drink pink headed beer. Head retention was good. The taste was more of a cherry flavor instead of raspberry. Over powering of the fruit - may be a better wine cool type that might be good for females. 8% abv isn’t enough reason for me to drink this - didn’t finish at all.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is reddish pink when poured in a glass with a head that is frothy and slightly red itself, and the aroma is pure raspberry. When sipped, this beer is quite thin and slick with a soft carbonation, but the sweetness is almost too much.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Red pour with a short, dense pink head. Aroma is over the top sweet and smells like berry jelly and candied fruit. Taste is raspberry and strawberry jelly, candy and candied fruit notes. Body is light-medium with a strong, effervescent carbonation and lots of sugary stickiness. Ends with more berry jelly and candy notes.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
As a total copout, I’m going to be posting essentially the same review for all 3 of the “Wild + Color” series beers because they’re all basically the same.
Wild Blue tastes and smells like artifical raspberry syrup. There are no distinguishable hops or malt tastes because the sugary, syrupy sweetness is completely overwhelming. This is high-powered, boozy, and synthetic. If that’s your jam, go for it.
By the way, I don’t like how they’ve used a dog theme and a similar font as Flying Dog in a transparent attempt to trick buyers into this stuff.
