Sweetwater Blue is a unique lighter style ale enhanced with a hint of fresh blueberry. When you drink this beer take a good whiff first and youll smell the blueberry influence, but on the taste its extremely subtle and the finish is extra clean. Aint no fruit beer, but it is our breakfast beer, usually folks that are looking to quench their thirst or for those that are new to the good beer lifestyle; this is their choice. This brew and the ESB were the original two to go through the tanks at SweetWater in February 1997.

$1.80 bottle, Wine Warehouse. Pours very pale golden with only a dusting of a head. Aroma of blueberry, but smells candied and artificial, grasses, and bread. Taste is blueberry wheat. Not bitter, but not really sweet. Not bad.

2015 BJCP Category: 29A Fruit Beer

AROMA: Authentic blueberry aroma. Sweet but not cloying. Some wheat presence. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Golden, mostly clear. White soapy head fades quickly. 1/3

FLAVOR: Familiar blueberry wheat ale palette, though more authentic-tasting than most. Wheat composition is noticeable; slight cracker flavor. Blueberry emerges on finish for sweetness, though slight dry bitterness is also present. Enjoyable for non-fauxness. 14/20

MOUTHFEEL: Light, crisp and refreshing with little to no aftertaste. Ideal summer beer, but should be in a can rather than bottle. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: A little more authentic than most fruity wheat beers. Impressive considering the low ABV. Overtly pedestrian but forgivable. 7/10

Pours a hazy golden yellow color. Aromas of wheat bread and berries. Flavor is sweet berry and a little yeasty. Flavor is to sweet for me, didnt care for this at all.

travita (4956) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Blueberry oatmeal, fruit, wheat, ok, nothing great. The look is cloudy, thin to no head, deep golden in color. Better than I thought when heard blueberry beer.

Smells like a blueberry cereal on the nose or maybe a blueberry muffin, but the aroma is not especially intense. Light gold on the color with a dissipating white head. Barely medium bodied, high on drinkability and low on extracurricular flavors. Bready on the palate, clean finish but not super crisp. Very low to non existent bitterness. A very good beer to drink outdoors in the summer, and the aroma does stand out from other beers of this type.

For a blonde kolsch style its great. Light and simple. The blueberries are real, not fake. Smell like you are trying to mash them in your fingers. The taste is light, not sweet. Pale yellow. Tap

Yellow pour, white head. Aroma lets you know that this is a wheat/fruit ale. Light on carbonation, hints of fuity pebbles.
