Blue Dawg Brewing in Baldwinsville, New York. So Bud finally put out a new version of their Wild Blue mess, huh? There is a red dog on the label playing a guitar. I'm guessing that might be Rascal.
There is an enormous aroma, even on the wind, as I opened it outside. I filled my glass with the most fluorescent red-pink neon liquid this side of a radioactive glow you've ever seen. The smell is sickeningly sweet, and oh yes full of raspberries. These raspberries are unnatural, hitting manufactured impossible fruity flavors. So far, this sucks.
Well, there are definitely raspberry flavors, but they are sugary sweet and obnoxious. Overly concentrated nonsense! Seriously, this tastes super-fake, even plastic. The 8% alcohol tries to hide behind the sweetness, but after a few sips, it rears its ugly head too. So what we have here is a "beer" that is fairly high in alcohol content, is fairly inexpensive and has a sweetness that tries to mask said alcohol. I wonder who would drink such a drink?
Dump. Not even Wild Blue was this horrid. I used my bathroom sink as I'm hoping this will strip that gunky shit right out of the drain. Why don't these guys just try to brew good beer? Prediction: this awful crap will be off the market by Labor Day. And then at least Poor Rascal might not need to sing the Blue(Dawg)s!
PS. I already finished another beer since dumping most of this shit. Then I burped and still tasted that raspberry crap full force. Ugh!
