Got to be straight up...very average beer that I absolutely adore....
We all have a "guilty pleasure"....might be "Veggie Tales" for my 12 year old, "Harry Potter" for my wife....I have a few guilty pleasure beers....this is one of them (take time to read my future reviews and you will learn I have a lot more than I should..)
No real complexity to this....lots of blue berry and lots of alcohol...take a fruit juice-add alcohol (or ferment...not sure which they did) and carbonate...most are kind of bad...but I love this....
It appears that I am in a minority- but I do feel that a lot of people do not like it simply because it is a AB product...I understand that emotion, but certainly do not agree with it...AB is the KING of beer...YOU do not have to like it...but someone-a lot of people do-think it is the best in the world...I do not agree, but...
even though Wild Blue lacks any exciting adjectives...I still like it...I am sorry I can not give it a better rating...it is just a simple tasting beer that I happen to love.
I rate it a 3

Wild Blue from Blue Dawg brewery in NY/ InBev

Aroma sweet blueberry ver prevalent

Appearance ruby red/purple clear with a small 1 finger cranberry head. With very little lacing

Taste - sweet wine like blueberry flavor with a little tart/bitter finish and aftertaste light carbonation

Mouthfeel smooth wine like with little residual resins

Overall a nice deceptive 8.0%ABV lager If you enjoy blueberries you should give this a try. Nice after dinner desert beer

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Pint glass showed a juice like beverage with little head to speak of, what was there was reddish purple. The smell started out like blueberry pie but went south fast and settled as stale juice box with some chemical notes. The taste was a real surprise as it tasted pretty good for what it is, I don't care for blueberries in the first place but I wanted to keep a open mind. The berry flavor was just enough but not over the top, on the down side not much Lager came through and that results in a 8% ABV adult juice drink....still have to try the Raspberry sister beer...and I do like Raspberries...I like a little more beer with my beer but I'm glad I tried it.
