I was looking for a new beer at the store and decided to play Russian Roulette and just grab the first thing I saw. Yeah, won't being doing that again any time soon.

A: Purplish pink with a very minimal head.
I've tried other fruit beers but I haven't ever seen one with this vibrate of color. Looks a little like Grape Nehi.

S: Smells like blueberries with a very sickeningly saccharine edge to it.

T: It's difficult to find words for this one. But bad. Very, VERY bad. I am overwhelmed by the flavor of blueberries, and sugar. I couldn't detect anything resembling beer as the fruit flavoring shuts out everything else. Tasted like a blue berry wine or champagne, but definitely not like beer.

M: Bubbly with excessive carbonation. "Sweet" taste buds exhausted and in revolt. A crisp finish.

O: Before I drank this I don't think I've ever "hated" a beer before. Give me any beer I've had in the past that I didn't care for, and I would gladly down a 6 pack of them before stomaching 1 bottle of this stuff.

Seriously, take the juice from a can of blue berries, make pruno out of it and mix with 7-Up. Congratulations, you have now made Wild Blue Lager.

Picked up a sixer@ the local store, I actually was going for the SN Celeration Ale, which they where fresh out of and this caught my eye, says on the carton that they won a gold medal, What a laugh, This is not beer, it's more like rancid fruit juice laced with alc. I will never buy another AB product again in my life as this product is a INSULT!!!!

Poured an awful grape juice color with a touch of soda pop head

smells exactly like flintstone vitamons.

Taste like bad tart grapejuice. where is the beer?

mouthfeel is thin and watery, no carbonation or body at all.

just plain awful not beer at all, avoid this at all costs.

I had to dump this one... I couldn't bare it. The smell alone was

so horrid, that I couldn't get it past my nose. I took a few sips

and I felt like I was drinking blueberry flavored piss. I've heard

mixed reviews of this brew (if you can even call it that), but I for

one would highly recommend never buying this beer. I even got

curious and aged one for a couple of months, thinking that

maybe there could be something to this beer, but again I was

wrong. It was still the same with a lot less kick. PLEASE AVOID

THIS BEER AT ALL COSTS! !!
