Oh man. Talk about nectar of the gods!

The beer pours a stunningly deep purple, reminiscent of Smurf blood, with a big, frothy, nasty head that fades fast. Which is great, because you wouldn't want any kind of barrier between your face and the luscious concoction about to fill your soul.

The smell? Imagine blueberry syrup....but in beer form! How zany!

Not that you'll be sniffing it for very long, because as soon as you tilt "Wild Blue" up to your nose, your arm reflexively thrust the elixir -- glass and all -- right down your throat. What, is your throat sore? Obviously that's because you can't take the mix of "natural flavors," and "color" that come with real-life blueberries!

And WOW, feel all that alcohol! There's no pesky "beer" flavor to get in the way of getting wasted.

This beer deserves ratings above a 5. Unfortunately, they only give you 12 ounces of greatness at a time, which just makes me upset. Until they make this beer in gallon jugs complete with a needle for direct IV injection, I'll have to give the same rating I'd give a fizzy, cheap wine cooler.

If I could give a lower score, I probably would. If you want cheap, syrupy, overly-sweet, gaudy fruit-beer, then I guess this might be your thing.

Smells like sugary syrupy beer
Looks like sugary syrupy blue beer
Tastes like Robitussin (at best)

If you want blueberry beer, just buy some Coors Light, puree some frozen blueberries and go to town.
