"Lager with artificial flavor added" reads the bottle.

There are some very negative reviews on this beer, and while I didn't love this, I didn't think it was terrible by any means. Perhaps they have changed the recipe over the last couple years. The main problem is that the blueberry doesn't taste natural (and it's not). Another problem is that there are some strange flavors, like corn and grain, which just don't work so well with the blueberry. The blueberry, which is not overpowering and not too sweet, tastes alright. There's nothing about it that tastes fresh, but there's nothing really offensive either. It's not hard to find a better blueberry beer, and I recommend Sea Dog.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit beers by any means, but this blueberry just rubbed me the wrong way... It's listed on the bottle as artificially flavored and it seems very sugary and sweet compared to other blueberry beers like Sweetwater or Fat Heads. It's not horrible but just very simple and not much flavor to it. Very plain and clean, but at the same time it leaves something to be desired like there's a missing component they forgot to add.

12 FL OZ bottle
Served in an imperial nonic glass

A - It is a light shade of amber in the middle and pale yellow around the sides. It has a haze. A mountain of white head sits atop it.

S - Blueberries.

T - It has a soapy taste that gives way to some blueberry flavor. The blueberry flavor is less intense than the smell.

M - It is highly carbonated and has a champagne-like feel to it.

O - It smelled good, and then I tasted it. There is nothing good about a blueberry soap taste.
