I picked a six pack of this up from the store taking a shot in the dark hoping to find something good. It took about a few nights before I popped one of these bad boys open. Well the bottle says 8% so you know you are getting a heavy hitter. When opening it definitely smells like blueberry and pours out to the equivalent of blueberry juice concentrate's color. Had a moderate amount of carbonation make white head. The first sip seemed like a pleasant sweet surprise. After sip 2 and 3 you realize that this is an incredibly sugary drink. By sips 5 and 6 it is almost unbearable to drink.

This says blueberry lager on the label on the front but on the back says its an ale, so which is it? To me it tastes like it doesn't have hops therefore making it neither and a malt liquor. This product barely resembles beer. It was so sweet I looked up the calorie content only to find it 260 calories per 12 oz. I wonder how many grams of sugar. Def not worth picking this up unless your 16 years old and drinking for the first time.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

A--Dark purple with minimal head that left surprisingly good lacing.

S--Is purple a smell?? Actually smelled overly sweet with a lot of blueberries.

T--A lot like I would imagine blueberry soda would taste if there were such a thing. No real taste of beer in there. Alcohol is very well hidden. I would never, I mean never, guess ABV of 8%.

M--Light & fizzy. Nothing of note

O--Bought it on a whim at Wegmans in their $12 build your own six pack. I'm normally not a fruit beer kind of guy, but got a few since it's summertime and I thought it'd be a nice refreshing change. It was just overly sweet and not anything resembling a beer.

S: Bottle

A: poured into a pint glass, looks like a blue wine cooler. Dark indigo with a two finger purple colored head.

S: Smells like blueberries...

T: Blueberries, with a heavy dose of splenda. Was much too sweet to drink on its own. So, dig out some coconut rum and make a concoction. Just playing around, we mixed this with coconut rum, blackberries, and Hardywood Cream Ale. Made a pretty good summer drink.

M: Just felt like drinking a malt beverage.

O: Too sweet. Would probably be a huge success in a college party. Very sweet with a high alcohol content (8%)
