It is called Wild Blue and is a lager made from Blue Berries. Has to be
in a
glass to allow it to breath, rather then from the bottle.

I'm still confused. I was convinced beer was made from malted or enzymated
grains... And Blueberry is a cowboy comic hero, over here...



Re: New favorite


That sounds interesting....is it somewhat like a Lambec.....

And what do you think they do with unsold back issues?  Recycling costs
money (transportation and energy costs), much cheaper to sell to InBev
and have them throw them in the mash tun...(or perhaps they use them to
replace the beechwood in the fermenting tanks?).

Judging from the net reviews I've seem, this "Wild Blue" stuff is
basically a mixture of cheap beer (stuff too bad to use straight, even
for Bud?!), artificial blueberry flavoring, corn syrup, and rubbing
alcohol or something.  [Seriously, the reviews consistently mention this]

A typical review:

   The first sip made me cringe.  The initial taste of this medium
   bodied beverage is not just artificial but medicinal. It honestly
   tastes like someone took the cheapest malt liquor they could find and
   then poured all the blueberry flavored syrup they could get into
   this.  This is honestly god awful.

Wow, interesting...  I was embarrassed that it was an AB product and
I liked it, but I did.  Nothing annoys me more than a crappy beer
covered up by a fruit/chili/whatever flavor, but I honestly didn't
find Wild Blue to be like that.  Maybe I should give it another try
and see if maybe I'm confusing it with something else, or just like
it despite how many others don't...

There's no reason to change your personal opinion based on the opinions
of others. Yes, in my opinion, B/M/C do make good craft beers. If *you*
like it, then who cares what the other guy thinks.

Oh, no, I won't change my opinion if I try it again and still like it.
It just surprises me that it has such a low opinion, and I half wonder
if I'm thinking of the wrong beer, or if it's just one of those things.

When I was searching for reviews of the A/B product, I actually did
see some references to a microbrew with the same (or a very similar)
name, which apparently caused some people a bit of confusion.

Also, perhaps the labelling of it as "beer" is part of what causes so
many people to dislike it, since it apparently bears basically zero
resemblance to beer.  While I actually like koolaid, and I like wine
coolers, I'd probably feel rather put off if I got one when I was
expecting a beer!

[The same might be said of many Belgian fruit beers and lambics
(for example), but they also tend to be of far higher quality, which
is probably going to offset dashed expectations to some degree.]

p.s. All this blathering makes me want to actually try the stuff once,
just to see for myself.  Probably best not to start with a six-pack
tho... :]

In a bottle? It can't be the Goose Island one as it's only on tap I
think.

Oh, the Anheuser-Busch Wild Blue. Oh well, if you liked it(did you?),
that's all that counts.
