Sweetwater Blue

For the life of me I can’t really work out why a small brewery would attempt to brew a non-mainstream beer like this.

It pours with a standard smallish head that disappears quickly, and has a distinct pale green/yellow appearance. Although this sounds somewhat unattractive it really does look pretty good.

There is a very noticable blueberry aroma and taste, but both seem extremely articificial. I would like the appearance of some real deep dark, blueish colors in the beer that the addition of fresh blueberries leads one to expect. When that doesn’t materialize one gets somewhat suspicious.

It’s drinkable, but it is tart, quite sour in fact and not especially smooth. The fruit lends the beer a dry taste that isn’t bad, but I left this one feeling quite dissatisfied. Just got the feeling it could be so much more. Too thin in the mouth, a chance missed.
