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.

12 oz. bottle into pint glass

A - Very pale yellow and remarkably clear, way too clear for a wheat ale IMO. Aggressive pour works up a half inch of flimsy head that dissipates almost immediately.

S - Blueberry. That's it. It doesn't even smell like beer. Just blueberry.

T - More blueberries up front with a little bit of wheat hiding in the end and a small trace of hops throughout. The middle tastes pretty watery, like something is "missing," much like their 420 extra pale ale.

M - Thin-bodied and watery, with lots of carbonation. Drinkable and refreshing, but not very impressive.

O - My overall impression of this beer is really just a macro lager soaked in blueberries. It's not *bad*, it's just very unimpressive. Try it if you don't have any better choices, but certainly don't run to the beer store in any hurry to get this.
