courtesy of decaturstevo - Pours a golden color with a very faint head. The blueberry aroma is detectable. The berry flavor is present, but not over powering. Light bodied and easy to drink. Not bad. Thanks Steve. jrob21 (3660) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 7, 2006
At Taste of the Highlands. Glad, now that this is off the list and I didn’t have to buy a whole six pack. Hints of blueberries obviously but not like a blueberry popsickle. I am not a fan of the blueberry beers so enough said. bfeldmann (1050) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 28, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2016 "Poured a super light golden color okay head and laced okay as well. Aroma was of blueberries. Flavor was of spices and blueberries and wheat , didn?t think it was going to have that much flavor after the pour. Not bad" PopeGelasius3 (54) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2006
A very good beer if one wants to wash a stinky beer out of the mouth. Very, Very fruity with a strong blueberry essence. Drinks and pours smooth. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2006
12-ounce bottle. Pours very translucent gold, headless (long drive to Seattle for this beer, maybe?). Laceless. Strong blueberry note on the nose--not much worth talking about anything but the blueberry there. Most of the other flavors are in support of the blueberry; there’s some earthy hay and a bit of an herbal hop note, but they’re really there to give body to the berry sweetness. Very refreshing, and probably a very good bbq beer. I’ll probably never reach for a fruit beer on the shelf, but being handed one of these is a nice change of pace now and then.

Unsual blueberry aroma and flavor, smelled more like blueberries than tasted like them. A light bodied, dry, fizzy beer. A beer I would find interesting if someone homebrewed a batch, I can’t imagine this beer being a retail boom. I have 5 more of them as I drink them I may re-rate if my thoughts change on it.

Bottle. A great fruit beer. The blueberry comes through very well in both the taste and the smell. Very fresh, very drinkable. TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - JAN 25, 2006
I’ve always enjoyed a well done fruit beer, and I love blueberry ale. Sweetwater Blue is a crisp, refreshing, tasty blueberry ale, with lots of good blueberry character in both aroma and flavor. I found this beer to be very enjoyable, though it was just a touch too sweet in blueberry flavor, and could have had a little bigger malt backbone.
Sweetwater Blue pours to a beautiful, bright, very pale golden color with a bright white head that fades, and a good bit of carbonation. The nose is very fragrant with the aromas of sweet blueberry jam, and a slight back drop of pale malt aroma. The palate is thin and somewhat watery on the tongue, with some crisp malt flavor, and sweet/sour blueberry flavors. Sweetwater Blue finishes with more blueberry flavors up front, then ends with a slightly sour and a touch cloying blueberry finish.
This is a nice, refreshing blueberry ale, with lots of blueberry aromas and flavors. It tastes more like a blueberry soda than a beer in my opinion. That is ok for me, as I love blueberries, but for some, the sweet blueberry character could be a bit too much. ghg (1) - USA - DEC 16, 2005 does not count
Whether mowing the lawn or sitting on the deck of your local pizza joint this beer is very refreshing on a hot summer day. budweiserblows (35) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2005
If I wanted to drink Budweiser I’d pay Budweiser prices for it. What else can you say, it’s just a beer. Nothing too special besides the price tag.
