Beautiful artificial blue / red color. Sweet industrial berry smell is a bit overpowering, as is the taste. It’s like a cloyingly sweet berry extract with serious medicinal aspects and rubbing alcohol notes. I’ve had worse from AB, but I will never intentionally consume this product again.

Purple, like a cooler or Grape Crush. Carbonated blueberry juice with a hint of beer. Sweeeet! YIKES! [pour]. McGarnigle (651) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Bought a sixer because I didn’t know what it was. 8% ABV fruit lager? Worth a shot. Blueberry or possibly grape all around. There’s an unfortunate hop bitterness at the end, but generally comes across as not so bad by the standards of spiked punch. Would score even worse if rated to style, whereas the style = beer.

Noticeble blueberry in the aroma. The plum color with a fruit punch head is the best feature of the beer. Soft entry with sweet intro that becomes sweeter and somewhat bitter towards the finish. Some carbonation. Blueberry hints with grape punch flavor in the aftertaste. I am not sure if I can finish a six pack. Maybe I need to pour it over vanilla ice cream. alohajennih (2) - Fort Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 6, 2008 does not count
This beer reminded me of Ihop, and getting a stack of pancakes. The blueberries really stood out being a fruit beer lover I found this mildly tasteful. when poured it left a nice little head.Can’t believe this is 8% alcohol. Will definently buy it again and better then boo berry cereal

God the kiddys will LOVE this! Pours a red body with a pink head, retention aint too shabby surprisingly. Light fruity nose with of course blueberrys and maybe a hint of straw/raspberry also. Light bodied with a surprisingly low level of carbonation. Cmon guys, you know them kids like,em fizzy! Kind of a blueberry flavor, old, stale blueberrys with some other artificial sweetner thing going on. Finish is fairly sweet and berryish. I guess you,d consider this a beer? Here kids, come and gettem!! dlihcsnatas (745) - Temple, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Finally someone is making a blueberry brew with REAL blueberry. The smell of blueberry with the nice taste of blueberry and the deep red color all just go down so smooth. This hit the spot for me because I am really tired of the extracts. Nothing makes a better brew than real berries and this one shows that.
Not sure where the Anheuser-Bush thing came about but my bottles says it was made by the Blue Dawg Brewing Co. in Baldwinsville, NY.

Thanks (I think) to Ando for sharing not one but two bottles of Wild Blue. Is this really appropriate? After we’ve been close friends and beer colleagues for so many years?
Appearance: Pours a Juicy Juice-looking, red-purple body with a tiny, pinkish head.
Smell: Blueberries through and through. You can smell them the minute you open the bottle.
Taste: Very berryish with a strong taste of blueberries. Middling sweetness. Dash of wine cooler. Small kick of acidity. Warming finish. The unrelenting artificial blueberry is ceaseless, never countered by any other flavors, and gets a bit tiresome.
Mouthfeel: Thin-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: Not altogether terrible, but certainly not for me. Like a blend of Hawaiian Punch and Wine Cooler plus 8% alcohol! bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2008
I can’t figure out why this beer is rated so low. Granted it’s a BUD beer. But its really pretty good. I light red hue combined with a nice blue berry flavor. I liked it. AND 8% to boot. thumbs up Budweiser, way up Nuffield (4171) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Lots of people on Ratebeer don’t like sweet, fruity beers. I do. It’s not port or sweet sherry, but it still has its charm. The flavor here isn’t sophisticated but it isn’t completely crass. A touch of cough syrup gives way to a mostly very drinkable blueberry quality. Sweet, sweet, sweet, with enough carbonation to make it interesting.
