O - pretty disgusting, not sure this is "beer", there's no balance. It's overly sweet with artificial blueberry flavors mixed with alcohol

I guess I am the only person in the world that loves this beer. A friend of mine picked up a couple to try and I was instantly surprised by this beer. It is very sweet and smooth and refreshing. It tastes nothing like a pint of water that burnt wood chips have been steeping in like some beers, but also has the thick feel of a good craft stout. This beer to me is what a refreshing beer should taste like.

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%)
