Wild Blue (Blueberry Lager)

Right out of the box, I think it would be really interesting to do a blind taste comparison between this beer and something like Lindemans Cassis. I think this beer would do better than one would anticipate.
12 oz single from Tower on Buford, Atlanta, GA, USA.
What an EXTRAORDINARY experience!
ALARMING purple pour with no head and virtually no lace.
Considering that this is supposed to be a fruit beer, there is virtually no nose – I mean NOTHING. I suppose at least there is no nasty, skunk but nevertheless one would expect more.
When it comes down to it this is simply “fruity” and sweet. It certainly doesn’t feel as though the beer has a particular blueberry note, but is does have a generic fruit element and it certainly has a residual sweetness.
Also astonished by the 8% ABV – admittedly is DOES seems a little higher than your standard macro lager, but at the same time the alcohol is very well hidden.
Beer that women will love, but most men will not like. This is a super sweet brew that I quite like! Amazing isn’t it!?!? Drinkable (as long as you don’t mind really sweet stuff), but in the end I think it was a decent fruit beer. Is it a classic Belgian Lambic? Certainly not, but I might even go there again!
Englishmen from the ’80’s should think, “Lager and Black”!! ;-)
