St. Louis, MO

See this monstrosity but twice as worse. Wine piss. The worst beer in the world. There I said it. All right, that's a little bit of drama but this is hardly beer-like whatsoever. Tastes like one of those off Kool-Aid brand gallon jugs of grape drink you get at the grocery store for $1.59. Overwhelming grape flavor in an 8% abv all-lacking "lager".

I love this beer. It's the best beer I've ever tasted - which is everything my boyfriend orders. But I generally don't like beer. I absolutely love this. Boys, give this to all the chicks u know who don't like beer!!!

I also like this beer. Got 2 sample bottles and got to say I was very surprised by it. I got them very cold so that might have play a part but anyways I drank one and then passed it around to about 4 of my friends and they all liked it very much. Maybe you wont be able to drink it all night but for something different give it a try. Its 8 percent which gives it a nice kick.

This beer, if you can bear to call it that, is terrible. It tastes way too sweet with a cough syrup aftertaste. I poured it out after a few sips... and it was purple no less. Yuck!

I have read so many comments about this beer and I am very surprised at many of the comments. So many people drink this and expect a traditional beer taste. IF YOU DO NOT LIKE SWEET OR FRUIT BEERS, DONT GET IT. If you do like fruit beer, know that they do not use artificial blueberry flavoring, they just use a TON of real blueberry's. I greatly enjoy this beer for what it is. If I drank it expecting hops, I would hate it. I love the fact that a six pack of Wild Blue is equivalent to a twelve pack of most other beers in alcohol content. This beer will knock you on your ass, however. I drank 4 of these on the beach and was done until after a nap.

Okay, let's get real. Yes, to us guys, it tastes like thick Fla*Vor*Aid mixed with beer and is just awful. But it's not for us. As was mentioned previously, this is a chick drink for girls who don't like beer but want to be seen holding a bottle. And guys, remember the kicked-up alcohol content? That's for us. Think how much more malleable she'll be after one or two of these monstrosities. And chances are she won't notice the 8% listed on the label. Want more proof? How about the fact that the dark-blue part of the "dog" on the label looks just like a spurting male member? Think that was coincidence? Heck, even the ejaculate in question is extremely sperm-shaped. Think about it guys...this "beer" rocks.

Okay my intake on this:

I drink it for two reasons...

First, it is not a natural beer taste, it's a different flavor that you don't find in any traditional beer.

Second, Good alc %. I don't drink cheap vodka in hopes that I will like the taste, I do it for the affect. Yet this beer is actually good, and has no hint of any strong taste.

Recommendations: Girls who don't like beer, someone who needs to get smashed and doesn't want to consume a 12 pack, a sipper at the blueberry festival, or any other occasion for that matter. It's a sipper beer, but can be consumed for other reasons.

6-pack got me good and drunk, and I don't get drunk of beer.

Last night, I couldn't find my usual high-alcohol content beer, Golden Monkey, so I went for something new: Wild Blue. I was skeptical when I heard "blueberry beer," because I'm really not into fruity drinks/beers, but at 8% alcohol I thought I'd give it a try. It took me about half an hour of complete taste-confusion to realize it was goddamn awesome. Yeah, it was sweet, and it's nothing close to what I typically like in a beer (I'm a fan of porters and other beers that are so thick and bitter you could cut them with a knife).

Keeping an open mind, I ended up deciding Wild Blue is pretty damn acceptable stuff. The sweetness of the blueberry flavor was shocking at first, but it didn’t stick with me forever like the awfulness that is Mike’s Hard anything. I’d taste it, then the lager-y flavor kicked in and the sweet went away. I wasn’t haunted by blueberry all night. It also didn’t have that I’m-totally-gonna-kick-your-ass-and-we-both-know-it taste that a lot of high-alcohol content beers have, so it seems to have a tendency to sneak up on ya — but in a very good way. So yeah, Wild Blue. I totally get why it got terrible reviews, but I think it’s surprisingly decent. You just can’t drink it expecting it to be, well, beer.

If I ever have a friend over who claims to not like beer, Wild Blue might be a good gateway drink. And damn, you would NEVER know it’s 8% alcohol if it didn’t say so on the bottle, and then proceed to knock you flat on your ass. Never in a million years.

Yeah, you could get him/her drunk and then make sweet sloppy syrupy blueberry lurve to them.
