Sweetwater Blue is a crisp and tasty desert beer. Very few places keep this beer on tap, but it is a must after a full round of wings or seafood. The blueberry taste is natural and crisp. Not artificial in any way. Blueberry is an easy fruit to fake, but Sweetwater keeps it real with natural blueberries.

This beer smells and tastes like an orchard of freshly picked berries. I am not a fan of fruit flavored beers, but this one is natural and pure and doesn't taste fake.

Try this if you are looking for a good desert beer that won't send your palette into confusion.

A - thick white head with good head retention; light color; very good crisp clarity

S - strong blueberry aroma; smells like wild fruit as apposed to artificial flavourings which is a very good thing; gives the aroma an almost feral quality that you don't expect in such a crisp, light beer

T - the primary flavor is a strong taste of fresh blueberries; at first this fruity taste is a little too sweet, but it is soon balanced by a hoppy bitterness which cuts through the sweetness and balances the flavor profile perfectly; the surprising thing about this beer is the fact that the blueberry taste does not at all overpower the beer; it manages to balance the sweetness of the blueberries with the bitterness of the hops perfectly

M - high level of carbonation; a little rough on the tongue for a beer with such a delicate flavor profile; when the fizziness subsides the beer has a very syrupy body which is to be expected from a fruity ale; perhaps is a little too syrupy for such a crisp, light beer; overall the mouthfeel is not unpleasant, it just seems to take something away from the blueberry flavor

D - Give me more.

I absolutely bloody love this beer.

It is a really enjoyable beer. The appeance wasn't all that. It did not have much head and no lace on the glass as it goes down. The smell is interesting you can definetly smell the blueberries but you can still smell some of the hop. The taste is a lot better that what I expected I was suprised. The mouthfeel is there and finishes smooth and refreshing which makes for a wonderfuld drinkability. Good beer even though I am not much for a fruity beer. I did not read the label before I drank the beer so it was kind of a suprise.

Sweetwater Blue from Atlanta, GA. Says 4.6% ABV on bottle, not 4.9%.

This beer has a great blueberry smell and an awesome blueberry wheat taste. Not as sweet as you'd expect with the smell (in a good way). Lots of carbonation. Very refreshing, especially in the summer. One of my favorites.

I drank it out of a bottle from Food City in Knoxville, TN on 12/22/2012 from a create your own 6-pack.
