So A-b makes this stuff but it's so bad they don't put there name anywhere on the bottle. Too sweet. I don't waste beer I drank them all and they'll get you pretty lit but this is some of the worst beer I've ever had

Want to get drunk real fast? Then drink this juice. It's not beer, it's a high ABV juice.

Despite the hating here, this was tasty as heck. Pours _blue_ with a finger of _blue_ head, which both retains and laces. Aroma is blueberry. Taste is blueberry. Lack of booziness at 8% is fantastic and sweetness is nice. Girly or not, this stuff is fantastic.

Pours purple-red with thin head and modest bubbles. Lots of blueberry aroma as you might expect with some tartness and malt notes. Tastes like fizzy kool-aid with a little spice. Too sweet.

Smells extremely sweet with an off-putting blueberry scent (smells way too smeet) and alcohol. The main off putter for me was the texture of this thing. It almost tastes like syrup. Won't be seeking this out again.

Pours a dark purple with a blue-ish hued head. The smell was very heavy with alcohol. The taste was not as bad as I was expecting, but still way too sweet with heavy alcohol burn. The texture was also far too syrupy for me. Not a fan.

Pours with a small, purple head. Looks just like grape juice. Has an aroma of blueberries, malts, and alcohol that combines to create a slightly unpleasant aroma. Initial taste is sweet from the blueberries, but aftertaste is bitter from the combination of malts and alcohol. Overall, a poor beer. But I have had worse.

Very very bad. Had once a couple years ago. It really isn't good. Dark blue color is off-setting.

Horrible fruit beer that would be ok as a shot but not in a 12oz serving. Pleasant blueberry syrup that gets old very quick.

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.
