Fizzy and sweet. Nice nose but a bit watery. One and done...

Nice light gold color with white cap.

Pleasant aroma of light grain and a noticeable blueberry scent. Very clean fruit scent that doesn't smell artificial.

Taste is of a moderately rich wheat brew that has surprisingly little blueberry flavor. I say surprising because that featured more strongly in the scent. Mild sweet grain on entry quickly followed by some, and I mean little, blueberry flavor that along with some hops build toward the finish. Blueberry is the most prominent flavor in the aftertaste while hops vacate the premises. One would expect sweetness considering the motif but this one is actually dry.

Light medium texture with balancing carbonation.

A very acceptable Summer style brew that offers little resistance to palates challenged by hops.

Well, yes, the blueberry taste does come through clearly. And I will even grant that this is done well because it comes off as not being weird. But (to me) this Sweetwater Blue is just OK as a beverage.

Had this on tap at a grand opening for a nightclub bowling alley.The appearance was clean but cloudy golden color.The smell was fantastic,hints of blueberry along with some lemon and maybe raspberries.The taste to me was outstanding.The blueberry was at the forefront and this beer was smooth.I have had some of sweetwaters offerings before but this is by far my favorite.
