12oz bottle poured into a pint glass date on the bottle says 12/11/13

A: Dark straw with a weak light head.

S: Strong blueberry and wheat smell, it smells exactly like a blueberry muffin.

T: The taste is the same as the smell. There is a metallic after taste but its not to bad.

M: This has a fizzy mouthfeel with a lot of carbonation. It is an easy drinking beer though.

O: I would say this beer is worth a try. I wouldn't really want to drink a 6 pack but its a nice beer. I pick it up every now and then when I have a craving for it.

SweetWater Blue has a thin, white head, which fizzes right away, no lacing, and a mostly clear, golden appearance, with an enormous amount of white powdery sediment suspended throughout. The aroma is of blueberries, with an underlying bread smell. Taste is of blueberry, white bread, sweetness, and a slight bitter note. Mouthfeel is medium, and SweetWater Blue finishes semi-dry, refreshing, fruity, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is good.
