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

Free sample on draft at Atlanta airport. I just don’t think that lager-like beers and fruit go together well, and this one proves my point.

Keg at the Beer Sellar, Nashville, 15/02/15. Pale golden with a moderate white cap. Nose is blueberry, sweet notes, straw, faint pale malts. Taste comprises blueberry syrup, straw, not as sweet as the nose suggested. Medium bodied, light prickly carbonation, semi drying close. So so fruit affair.

Draft. Golden with small white head. You get the blueberry on the nose. Flavour is malt but unlike the aroma the blueberry are barely there.

3.3
djd07 (14471) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear golden with a small white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is a very sweet fruit with blueberry and light hop. Decent lacing along the glass. The taste is similar to the aroma with a strong blueberry and a tart finish. A good fruit beer if you like blueberries with it very present with this brew.
