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.

Yes.

Poured into a Ninkasi Brewing pint glass. Label says Best if Enjoyed by: 12/28/12

A- Pours a light golden color with a 1/2 inch white head that soon fizzes away to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and scattered light surface foam. Lacing is non-resilient.

S- Nice blueberry aroma that's not too powerful with some mild wheat smell in the back.

T- The blueberry isn't as pronounced in the flavor but that's not a problem since it allows the wheat characteristic more room to shine. There is a bit of a weakness in the aftertaste as more sips are taken.

M- Light, crisp, actually borderline watery. Medium-low carbonation.

O- Not a great beer, all things considered, but I prefer it to Sea Dog Blue since the blueberry flavor doesn't overpower. Better on draft.
