A good beer for college students that want something sweet with a high alcohol content. For me it was a drain pour.

Sweet and crisp, drank straight from the bottle. It was very blue/purple, and claims to have juice, which leads me to want it to be considered a shandy. I don't know if there is any beer rules that say it can't be a shandy, but it was too sweet for me to call a lager. Great beer to get drunk on, being 8% and tasting like lightly carbonated juice. No bitter flavors during or after conumption. Don't let the kids near it.

This is pretty much a less flavorful version of grape soda. Not sure I would even classify this as a beer.

Blue Berry Lager, very difficult to execute. This is so much better served over ice.

I was offered a taste by my father and didn't think it was that bad. Not that good, though.

Nice fruity aroma, with a somewhat more stolid outward appearance, the taste is decent, but not as profound as the initial flavor. Smooth.

Dark blue color, sickly sweet taste. Its good when you just wanna get drunk and not drink beer.

Why do I have to give it a review?

I can understand why some hard core purists would dislike this beer. It's sweet and does remind you of a grape soda. But I liked it. My wife LOVED it! At 8% it has a nice kick and I get to enjoy the taste of blueberries.

First sip of this "lager" is nothing like what you probably expected when you ventured out to give this new concept of brew a try. The taste from beginning to end is somewhat of a dull blueberry soda that has been overwhelmed by syrup. The only reason I gave it a 2 star rating is because,for some reason, despite this taste description, it is bearable to drink as a CARBONATED MALT BEVERAGE but completely unrelatable to beer and any classic lager brews.
