Beer Review: Wild Blue Blueberry Lager


Beer: Wild Blue Blueberry Lager
Brewer: Anheuser-Busch, Inc.
Source: 12 oz. bottle
Rating: No stars (3.0 of 10)
Comments: Bleagh!  This “beer” looks purple with no head and gives off a sickly sweet aroma.  It tastes syrupy with a fairly high level of alcohol.  It seems more like a Mike’s Hard type of beverage than an actual beer.  The label says it contains natural flavors and fruit juice, but it tastes totally artificial.  Seems like I was suckered in again by a commercial brewery hiding their wares in with the craft brews.  Drink only if you have a sweet tooth and want to get drunk fast.

  1. In Appleton, Wisconsin, at a local brewpub last spring we sampled beer with blueberries in it — whole blueberries. It was a wonderful amber color, with a hint of blueberry, but the blueberries themselves were fantastic.

    Maybe it only works for small brewers.

  2. Okay, maybe not a brew pub. Fratello’s was the first place we tried the stuff.

  3. Boston Beer Works (http://www.beerworks.net/) also makes a Bluebeery Ale that has actual blueberries floating in it.

    Wachusett Brewing Company (http://www.wachusettbrew.com/) makes a nice blueberry ale too.
