Enjoyed on-tap @ the Mellow Mushroom in Asheville, NC for $4. Tapped from an unknown tap handle (ordered from table) & received in a 16oz Pint Glass.

Aroma- The aroma is made up of fake blueberries (either in a smoothie or oatmeal. Blended.). Has a ton of wheat and grain in the nose as well.

Appearance- Received with a less than .5 finger head and dies immediately after the first sip. Has a golden colored body that is clear. Leaves suds behind.

Flavor- Very appropriate wheat taste but then what? Smooth and a dry finish. Makes me want to drink one of SweetWater's "bigger" brews.

Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, Light-Medium Carbonation, and has an extreme wheaty finish.

Overall Impression- Hearing it was a brew with blueberries within, thought it would be refreshing and worth it. It was, just nothing I would drink back to back. Enjoyed once and will check it off my list. Wouldn't go out of my way for it and like I said, MANY more brews from SweetWater that will keep your standards high!

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.
