I picked up a bottle of SweetWater Blue on my trip to South Carolina. The beer pours a pale yellow color with a bubbly white head. The aroma is filled with blueberries, similar to a muffin. The taste is light and sweet with a good blueberry accent. I was surprised that Sweetwater pulled off the blueberry accents without being too fruity, but not overly light either. The alcohol content is 4.9% ABV. I thought that the Sweetwater Blue had a good wheat flavor to compliment the blueberry in the beer, and nothing was lacking or overdone, which is very important in a fruity wheat beer.
