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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(12oz bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a clear ruby body with a small pinkish white head. Aroma of raspberry snow cone syrup. Flavor of raspberry candy. Pure sugar. If you want your beer to actually taste like liquid candy this is your beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is extremely sweet fruit. Flavor is overwhelmingly berry. Almost no hint that this is a beer at all. Alcohol content is hidden. This would do well at frat parties, but has little appeal otherwise.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bright red color carries over into a pink toned head. This head doesn’t last too long and leaves little lacing. Enjoy looking at it; refrain from consumption.
Smells like raspberry candy or Jello, with a bit of raspberry soap. and alcohol. The taste follows: excessively sweet, like a raspberry soda, but with a bit of bitterness that lends it a medicinal flavor. Artificial raspberry dominates almost everything else, but some vague spicing is also evident. Aftertaste comparable to that from eating cheap raspberry candy.
Light-medium body with ample carbonation, yet somewhat watery.
O: Not beer, and a not good beverage. At least as much like a wine cooler as a beer. Might work for somebody who loves fruit sodas and dislikes beer. Alternatively, if a bottle comes into your possession and you can’t pawn it off on someone else, perhaps you could use some of this to add some fruit flavor to another beer or in a dessert recipe.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Probably the worst of these three, this has very little raspberry flavor. Mostly it tastes of sweetness and alcohol. Not good.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
pours hazy, candy-red with pink head.
Scent is raspberry......that you can smell from across the room as you pop the cap.
Taste is tart raspberry/alcohol.
Clingy sweet sugar over party punch.
Obviously created to produce bad decisions and remove clothing from horny young persons.
It could only be more obvious if the red hound on the label were sporting a bit of "chapstick"....
A juvenile and awful concoction.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours thin pink head, with some lacing, over a hazy pink red (SRM 12) body....nose is dominant raspberry.....taste is sweet raspberry, corn syrup, finishing with light astringent bitterness.....mouth feel is light, astringent, alcohol warmth present carbonation high. This is a fruity Strong Lager quite reminiscent of some of Baltikas creations. It is a simple alcohol delivery device and is quite awful. BJCP4/2/9/3/5

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(12oz bottle thanks to blutt59) clear bright red, wispy white bubbles. Nose of raspberry sugar water, not much else. Taste of a bit of saccharin, raspberry candy, sweet and not beer like.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Lager infused raspberry juice! Not much more can be said about it other than you gotta taste it to believe it.
