SweetWater Blue has a thin, white head, which fizzes right away, no lacing, and a mostly clear, golden appearance, with an enormous amount of white powdery sediment suspended throughout. The aroma is of blueberries, with an underlying bread smell. Taste is of blueberry, white bread, sweetness, and a slight bitter note. Mouthfeel is medium, and SweetWater Blue finishes semi-dry, refreshing, fruity, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is good.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Poured a golden straw like color into a standard pint glass. Two fingers of white head fade quickly, no apparent lacing.

Smell: Definitely some blueberry but more artificial blueberry than say...blueberry pie. A bit of corn and malt in there as well.

Taste: Blueberry, a slight tartness and what you'd expect in a fruit beer. Still a bit too much lager flavor for me but this isn't bad.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a some off flavors, decent carbonation. Somewhat refreshing I suppose.

Overall: Eh, I used to like fruit beers back in the day, this one isn't great but not terrible. Not something I'd drink too often but worth a try if you like fruit beers.

On tap at Canoe at Sweetwater sponsored CRK event.
Slightly hazy deep golden with very little head.
Fine aroma features blueberry: think fine fresh preserves. These is some wheat and barley malt base evident too.
The flavor has good balance, with prominent blueberry but a solid malt base. Only lightly sweet due to a good bit of tartness.
Medium-light body with near medium carbonation.
O: recommended
