I like this beer, it's sweet and fruity and fun! Consider it a dessert beer or with fruit and cheese. It has a strong blueberry taste and a heavy feel. The 8% alcohol content gives you a nice fuzzy feeling all over! This is a good alternative to have on hand for the wine drinkers at your next beer bash.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Color: burgundy

Smell: little bit of alcohol. blueberry of course

Taste: obvious blueberry - not overwhelming or too sweet/rich. its a lager so its clean and crisp

Mouthfeel: like a sparkling juice with low carbonation. clean and crisp. light body

Notes: very unique. i know that this one is a hit or miss. its not bad but i dont think i could drink too many at once, unless me and a buddy took a case camping up in canada a handful of years ago and it was all we had. great "beer" for those who otherwise dont like the taste of beer

This is a new category for beer and I think it is very good and Drinkable. Obvious not something I expected from AB but they do surprise you all the time. A lot of reviews on this beer are more anti AB then they are true reviews of the beer. So I am disappointed that the self proclaimed "beer gurus" cannot give a neutral beer review. If this was made by New Belgium it would be the greatest beer ever made. YOu know who you are the ones that feel insulted right now as you read this. Great job AB you did it again.

From a brown 12 oz. bottle. Pours a pretty blue/voilet color with a small head. Has a strong smell of sweet blueberries. Taste just like it smells. Sweet and fruity. Feels light in the mouth and goes down very easily. Overall I was pleasently surprised. This is a quality brew.

This beer has a smooth blue berry flavor. It smells really good, it is not heavy it kind of has a malt taste. At least I think it does. It is a great beer for no matter what time of the year. It is a beer that I like to come home sit back and relax and enjoy after a long hard day at work. I definitely would recommend this beer to friends and family.

Picked up a six of this one on my way to a quantity over quality night and the selection at the store I stopped at was very limited. Very interesting looking beer, dark in appearance with a light purplish head, I guess what you would expect from a blueberry beer. Smell is an interesting mix of blueberry and beer. Outstanding flavor, I enjoyed this beer very much, plus, it was very easy to drink which was surprising for an 8% beer, this gives it bonus points overall. And it was very reasonably priced. Not sure it is exactly a beer, more of a fruit cider, malt beverage, beer mix with blueberry juice, but I found it very tasty. Overall, not really a beer, but I enjoyed it and would buy again, just don't go into it looking for a beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - dark bluish purple with no head.

Smell - fruity, blue berries and wheat.

Taste - if you buy I blueberry beer, you must be expecting to taste blueberries and beer...that is this. Not too bad.

Mouthfeel - average

Overall - don't really like fruit beers, this isn't a terrible offering. I think it gets low ratings just because its Busch.

I received this for free and I thought it was quite good. Not like a normal lager and the feel of the beer was a lot like soda. It had an immediate beer taste to it then you can taste the blueberry which in my opinion tasted a lot like a bacardi drink.

Wow, what is this? Juice or beer?

Its almost like a lambic but too syrupy..
Anyway, it poured a purple/ blue color with no head. Smelled of sweet concentrated fruit. Tasted the same, like a mouthful of blueberry pie filling. It was very sweet but not too much to handle. I could have gone for another and the 8% is a plus, considering you can't taste any of it.
