COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not suited for timid or reserved beer drinkers, Wild Blues defining taste characteristic is its kick of natural blueberry flavor. The Blue Dawg Brewing team carefully selected a blend of hops and barley malt to ensure they complemented and balanced Wild Blues dominant blueberry notes, resulting in a robust and aromatic beer with a refreshing, palate-cleansing finish. Wild Blue is brewed with a blend of German hops from the Hallertau region in Bavaria and classic Aroma hops from the Willamette Valley in the Pacific Northwest. A combination of two- and six-row barley malt also was chosen specifically for this recipe. Beer lovers will appreciate this specialty fruit-infused lagers striking burgundy color, ripe blueberry aroma and its ability to stand up to the strongest of foods.

Holy fuck, this smells like a grape flavor ice! Brings me back to my childhood. Tastes like a syrupy blueberry slushy. I got approximately 3 sips down and poured the rest. Thank you to whoever left this at my house 2 years ago.

An average beer at best. Budweiser should stay out of craft beer. It is embarrassing what they endorse. Tastes like boo very cereal. Pours purple in color ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours velvet, rocky head. Aroma of blueberries and cheap champagne. Taste: artificial blueberry flavoring, chalk, sugar.

Wild Blue Lager has a medium, fizzy, pink head, which maintains itself much longer that one would expect, a clear, ruby-red, bubbly appearance, and splotchy lacing. Aroma is of grainy, pungent lager beer and acidic blueberry juice. Taste is the same, with essentially no noticeable bitterness, but definite fruit acidity. Mouthfeel is heavy, slick, and filling, and Wild Blue Lager finishes wet, sweet, and heavy. Not a beer for me, but still well-crafted and executed. RJT

I cant say this is as bad as everyone says... but you have to be okay with artificial flavors. This is a good beer for the non beer drinker who likes a splenda like blueberry experience. Hide the beer drink the coolaid.

"im glad i didnt shell out for a six pack as i was thinking of doing. had a bit someone elses while watching the Superbowl, and all i can say is this was quite gross. While i thought 8% abv would be a good thing, it just made this a strong gross beer instead of a more subtle one. Oh well, never again... ok, i lied...one year later i tried again. still not great, but fresher. blueberry likely being my least favorite fruit in beer. i bumped up the score a couple tenths..."

The quintessential chemical fruit beer. Overly sweet and strange looking to boot.

Transfer from BA review on 9-13-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance The beer pours a quite ruby purple color with a one finger purple tinted head floating atop the beer upon pouring. The head is quite fizzy and fades quite rapidly, leaving almost no lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell The aroma is big and sweet of a blueberry smell. This aroma largely dominates the smell, but some other light aromas of candy like smell mixed with a bit of a sour berry and cherry smell are there as well. Overall it smells like berry kool-aid. Taste The taste begins with a sweet berry flavor of blueberry mixed with a bit of raspberry and cherry. Along with these sweet flavors are some light tastes of malt. As the taste advances from the initial, it gets even sweeter and more berry candied flavored. With a little bit of an alcohol flavor coming to the tongue at the end, a very sweet berry flavor is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is rather thin for a brew of 8 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are rather appropriate for the very sweet and berry flavors of the brew. Overall While massively sweet, the flavors are not all that off. It tastes kinda like a berry flavored wine cooler. If you want an alcoholic dessert in a liquid form then this is alright, but if dont want anything very sweet, then you may want to stay away.
