Picked this up at Evergreen Liquors in Frederick, MD because I never had it before and assumed it was from a high-quality craft brewery of sorts - judging by the label.

Look: poured a cartoonish purple with a lighter purple head that dissipated in a few seconds. The carbonation bubbles completely took over the body of the neon purple liquid. Lacing was nonexistent

Smell: Blueberry was definitely all that came through in the nose along with some malt liquor skunk. Almost like blueberry syrup found at Ihop or Bob Evans, mixed with a light macro lager.

Taste: Ok… heavy artificial blueberry with a Fruity Pebbles cereal character. The finish was of a residual dextrose and a dry Bud Light aftertaste with some fusel alcohol.

From what I can tell – Inbev created a fictitious brewery in New York in order to justify the false advertising on the label of this beer. With that said, please learn from my mistake - do plenty of research before just randomly selecting a beer from the shelves of your bottle shop when feeling adventurous. This was a classic case of false advertising.

Well I saw this in the grocery store and grabbed a six pack because I thought it was made by flying dog. The art was similiar to what you see on their beers and it had a dog on it. After I could barely getthe first swallow down I looked over the bottle and didnt see flying dog anywhere on the bottle. I came here and found the truth...

Beer is a deep purple sort of like a fanta. No head whatsoever.

Smell is very syrupy like blueberry syrup. Nothing beer like here.

Taste is nothing like a lager but more like a wine cooler. Grape and blueberries.

Mouthfull is average kind of sticky like a soda without much water in it.

I wouldnt buy this "beer" again. I could see the appeal for young girls who normally drink wine coolers though.
