Wild Blue is not only an absolutely vile beer; it may be one of the most disgusting beverages to ever cross my lips. First of all, I'm dubious about its claim of being a "beer;" from first sip, all this beer comes across as is a good amount of cheap blueberry cocktail juice (think the 99 cent per half gallon high fructose corn syrup garbage they sell at dollar stores/serve at elementary school parties, and you're there) with a bit of cheap malt liquor (or diluted vodka) added. No malt or hop flavors or scents are detectable, only a cloying, overpowering amount of sugar and artificial berry to hide the 8% ABV, presumably from drinkers who would be intimidated/awed by the idea of an 8% beer. To address its appearance, it's quite an unnatural blue/purple... not something I'd like to see in any food/drink I'm having, let alone my beer. It's quite an effort to not give this beer straight 1s; I will give Wild Blue the benefit of the doubt and leave it with a 1.5 in drinkability... in hopes(?) that there is a worse beer out there for me to try... somewhere, someday.
Updated June 2012; since drinkability is no longer a rating category, I feel obligated to bump this one down to straight 1's (from a 1.5 in drinkability/overall). While I have had a marginally worse beer, I can't in good conscience give this beverage anything more than a 1/5 overall.

Tried this on a whim. What a mistake.
Poured into a pilsner glass, there is barely any head: just a small amount of purple foam. The beer has the light scent of red wine.
The taste starts off sweet, and finishes very bitter. I hate wine, and that is what this tastes like. It seems like it dries my mouth out, so the mouthfeel doesn't leave me wanting more.
I'm going to slug this down for the 8%, but I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. It's just....awful.
