3.13/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a nonic pint glass

A - It is golden with a chill haze. It had virtually no head. The little bit that was there was white.

S - At first I got a soapy smell. That smell seemed to dissipate. Then I noticed fresh blueberries.

T - The blueberry taste is not in your face. It is subtle. It tastes like a lager with blueberry flavoring.

M - Moderate

O - It is not a great blueberry beer. The base beer taste is too prominent and bland.

Purchased a 12 oz bottle at a Publix in Macon, GA. Sure can taste the blueberries, but it's just too sweet in the wrong way. It's not a complex sweet that you might get from a lambic or even from other fruit beers. It's just sugar. In my extremely limited experience, SweetWater beers seem to be sweeter than is standard for the style (e.g., the 420)--it must be the name.
