It’s October and you know what that means? Beer swilling Octoberfests all over! So in celebration of Octoberfest, I will be presenting some tasty brew and not so tasty brew reviews throughout the month.
First Up is Wild Blue, Blueberry Lager. Sounds strange already right? Wild Blue is made by Blue Dawg Brewery out of Badlwinsville, NY and is made with natural blueberry flavor. You can also see a bit of blueberry sediment in the bottom of the bottle after pouring.
As you can see from this picture, it has a very dark bluish/ maroon color to it. Not a thick head at all on this lager. Wild Blue contains a stout 8% Alcohol/volume to it. You can tell when you taste it. What you can’t taste is any sign of lager. It’s blueberry all the way and almost tastes like a whine cooler. Wild Blue runs about $6.99 a six pack and is not really worth it if you can’t stomach the other five.
After I drank the first Wild Blue I got a splitting headache and a stuff nose as if I had an allergic reaction to it. My stomach felt slightly ill and I began to have a bit of an acidic feeling in my gut. I would not recommend Wild Blue to my worst enemy.
Stay tunes later this week for brew that I DO like…
And yes, that’s a coke mug. The only beer mug I own is a liter mug (Great for Keggers!) from Germany and I wasn’t about to pour 3 beers in it to get the effect.
