COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweetwater Blue is a unique lighter style ale enhanced with a hint of fresh blueberry.

This brew and the ESB were the original two to go through the tanks at SweetWater in February 1997.

bartlebier (3556) - Belchium im Biersgau, - NOV 20, 2012
single 12oz bottle, picked up on the road in GA. - Unpresuming, light b lueberry muffin-perfumed watery wheat/ale that does not taste like the blueberries had a long confrontation with the beers (like in Belgian style lambic), but were infused afterwards without to much of an organic ripening process. So, somewhat artificial and unnecassary, but still, not too sweet or cloying and drinkable on a warm day - she liked it, too.

Average looking pour. Not as sweet as expected. Rather flat, no lacing. Somewhat lame to tell you the truth. I expected much more from this. On tap.

Cajun (432) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Bottle - Pours a pale gold with fizzy white head. Aroma of blueberry muffin, blueberry juice. Mild flavors of blueberry bread (pancakes/muffin), juice, mild hops end.

Loose bottle, $1 from Caputos. Pale lager color with a pinkish tinge. Smell has blueberry to it of course, but its not overly sweet or cloying. Taste is not really much more than an ordinary beer with blueberry flavoring. Nothing bad, just nothing to make it stand out.

I had it on tap. It pours golden with a small, white head. The aroma is blueberry and grain. The taste is the same. It wasnt overly sweet. This is a decent fruit beer.

EithCubes (5649) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Bottle best enjoyed by 09/14/16. Nose is straight blueberry jam, sticky-jammy to the point is smells artificial. Hazy golden pour with lots of extra carbonation and a white head that fizzes itself out in about fifteen seconds. Taste lightly tart, very crisp, bready and lightly yeasty finish but not before tripping over cloying blueberry. Some sunny malt and it is clean and refreshing, with something of a mild ginger burn.

Bottle. Pours a tannish light color. Taste is crisp, sweet and slightly fruity without overdoing it. Not bad

Andrew196 (1540) - Katy, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Clear golden-yellow, no head. Aroma of grainy blueberry muffin. Flavor much the same with some crisp strawberries. Blueberries come out in the aftertaste....summery, but nothing special.

$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.
