Back in the day, when I was 18 and lived in the dorm, we used to drink a cheap wine called Bali Hai. Well, Wild Blue reminds me of Bali Hai or Boone's Farm. Except Blue here has a major kick to it and it's not a good kick! Unsophisticated sweet, syrup like consistency. I can't say anything good about this beverage. If I was underage and I wanted a buzz and had not developed a taste for beer or wine, this would be it. Really, this is just one bad excuse of a "lager". The alcohol does not mesh. It's almost like it was fortified with alcohol. The alcohol should complement the beer and be part of the taste experience. I have 5 1/2 bottles of this stuff left and don't know what to do with it. If this was Blue Moon, I could use it to bake an orange chicken. But, I don't want a blueberry blue/purple colored chicken. My wife says it reminds her of a cheap cosmo. I'm going to try it as a blueberry beer float with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on it for dessert. If that doesn't work, down the drain. I would not serve this to a guest and I sure as heck won't drink it. Thinking back, this is very similar to Malt Duck and I hated Malt Duck. This stuff is worse than Hop n Gator.

A - This beer poured like a cheap wine cooler from your local gas station. It is a deep kool-aid bluish purple. Definitely appeared to be artificially colored --- some food dye possibly.
S - Sweet sugary smell with a tiny hint of blueberry
T - Tastes exactly like it smells. Mostly grape medicine-type flavor than blueberry. Basically, you can expect something that tastes like grape kool-aid brewed with a little bit of sweet grape soda and some real syrupy grape cough syrup. Medium-high carbonation of course.
M - Light bodied; easy drinking but really hard drinking getting down this piece of shit beer without gagging. Syrupy with high carbonation.
O - Not a great beer at all! Avoid by all means. How is this even being marketed on the shelves as beer is beyond me. The Brothers rating is definitely right on the spot on this one ---may even be a little too generous. This is actually an insult to the craft of beer. It's not even fit to serve at a prison! This beer has over 250 calories and is so not worth the cost or the health impacts. The alcohol content is also very high --almost 8%. If you like getting buzzed of cough syrup or you're an advocate of sugary wine coolers/kool-aid/grape soda combos then this is definitely the beer for you. If you're a true beer advocate, you should avoid this beer by all means. There are just too many other great beers out there to try. Move on!
