I think this is the only beer I've ever poured out.

Let me admit something up front: I really like fruit beers, and have had more than a couple blueberry beers.

Yet Wild Blue is absolutely undrinkable. I've read the positive reviews here & just still cannot make heads or tails of what they're talking about. I wish I would've read reviews before purchasing, but alas I had to find out the hard way what a wretched, gag-inducing taste this "beer" has.

So, yes, I poured it down my sink. I came back in the kitchen later & the smell was still seeping up and contaminating my home. If the thought of drinking Draino mixed with Kool-Aid and blue syrup makes you ill, then do stay clear of Wild Blue.

A: 1 finger cranberry and cream colored head. Bubbles are tight and some medium. Deep cranberry colored body. Head dissipated after a minute or so.

S: blueberry, fruit, slight sweetness and slight tartness.

T: very sweet and sugary. Graininess. Tastes like a flatter sparkling juice. I suppose its more blueberry tasting then any other fruit. Bitterness rolls deep in the finish. Alcohol is noticeable and detracts.

M: thin but carbed.

O: not good at all. Too boozy. Too sweet. Sickeningly cloying sweet with odd pronounced bitterness at the end. Gross. Couldn't drink another. Ever.

This is a great summer drink, not convinced if you can call it a beer though. This beer has a color like no other, the dark purple almost makes it look more like juice. There is so much blueberry taste to this beer, it tastes more like a mixed drink than a beer. On a hot Saturday fishing or golfing this is definitely the six pack i'm bringing. For about $7 a six pack it has great flavor and at 8% abv you might regret it in the morning.
