Served - bottle into Pint Glass

Appearance
Very purplish appearance with little to no head retention.

Smell
Definitely can smell the blueberries. Slight smell of hops that at least denotes some beer tendencies.

Taste
All you can really taste is blueberry with MAYBE the slightest hint of some hops as an aftertaste. Really just overwhelmed with blueberry, and it doesn't really taste like you are even having a beer. Odd for an 8% abv.

Mouthfeel
Pretty light and fruity throughout your mouth. Smooth with some slight carbonation. Mostly no aftertaste in the throat, just a hint of blueberries left in your mouth.

Overall
Well my wife doesn't like beer, and if I had to order her a beer at a restaurant, I'd get her this one if that tells you anything. It doesn't taste like beer! If it didn't come in a brown bottle with the word lager on the label I would have never known this was a beer.

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.
