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.

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 weve 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!

I cant figure out why this beer is rated so low. Granted its 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

Lots of people on Ratebeer dont like sweet, fruity beers. I do. Its not port or sweet sherry, but it still has its charm. The flavor here isnt sophisticated but it isnt 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.

Courtesy of fishingnet. Wow, this looks like an exotic brew. Oops, its a macro. DAMN!!!! Pours deep ruby red with rose head and spotty lacing. The aroma is pure fecal nearly rotting diapers mixed with mild fruit berries and sugar fruit candy. Nearly a YUCK aroma. The flavor is fruit extract, mild fruit tartness and punchy fruitiness. This liquid makes me question whether or not this is a beer at all. I think not.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Pours very red light like a red wine with almost no head, with below average lacing. Below average carbonation with a sweet smell of Hawaiian Punch. Tastes bitter and sweetbut this stuff is awful. This is awful and tastes like fermented HI C. Avoid, Avoid, Avoid, Avoid Avoid, Avoid Avoid, Avoid Avoid, Avoid!

Pours a light black raspberry color with a tiny white head. Aroma is sugar coated blueberry candy. Flavor is sugary, blueberry, and a tiny bitter finish.

Bottle. Poured a red/purple color with a small pink head that disappeared quickly. Has a very strong blueberry aroma and taste. The beer has a light body, thin texture, and a very lively carbonation. Overall, I thought there was to much of a blueberry flavor. It reminded me more of a carbonated wine than a beer.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2008
It pours a cranberry color with a pink head. The aroma is strong and full of blueberries and some malt notes. Its flavor is overwhelmingly fake and sweet with blueberries adding some tartness. Hop and malt flavors are barely detected. The palate is medium bodied with a sticky texture and the carbonation is fizzy.

MrBeerFanatic (1031) - Friona, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Pours an interesting dark purple with a small pink head. Has an ok flavor of blueberries and an ok balenced sweetness, with a tacky based palate feel. The somewhat high ABV is mostly hidden. Not a bad beer coming from anheuser. Much better than regular busch out of the can and most of their other beers...
