I tried it at JL Beers in Moorhead, after my girlfriend's love for blueberries caused her to order one.

Appearance
This "beer" looks almost opaque, but has a distinct dark red color when seen held up in the light. The head is almost pink, and more red than cream-colored.

Smell
Strong wild berry smell, with a bit of bubble gum, it seems.

Taste
It's blueberry, alright! Doesn't taste much like beer at all, it only has a few hints of malt towards the end.

Mouthfeel
Extremely bubbly. Surprisingly not very sticky, almost more like a super-fruity, heavier white wine than a sweet beer.

Overall
It's not really a beer. With that in mind, it's actually pretty alright. It's definitely an alternative for people who don't like "beery" flavors. For what it's worth, I was quite surprised that it's fairly enjoyable - As long as you realize that it has nothing to do with beer other than the name. Personally, I wouldn't buy it. But I can see how others might enjoy it.

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.
