COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 you’ll smell the blueberry influence, but on the taste it’s extremely subtle and the finish is extra clean. Ain’t 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.

Medals: Bronze medal winner at the 1998 World Beer Cup, Fruit Beer category; Always the funky favorite at any outdoor beer festival

Malt: 2 Row, Wheat

Hops: Centenial

macca147 (761) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 4, 2017
Tasting paddle at Brewdog Oxford. 1/3 pint. Pours a pale and clear yellow gold with a thin white head. Aroma: blueberries, citrus, mild floral notes. Taste: tart blueberries, citrus, mild sweet malt flavours. Thin bodied. Moderate carbonation. Mildly sweet and mildly tart. Quite thin and basic. A bit watery. Very easy to drink and refreshing, but not enough flavourto make you want it again. Good but not great. Would be very nice on a warm summer's day!

12oz bottle. Pours clear yellow-gold with a thin white head. Blueberries are in there, plus wheat, bread, some light sweetness. Light body. Crisp finish. Very light style, think session beer.
