Postmortem Brew Review
Clear golden color.
Blueberries and hops are noticeable.
Near-white, one finger of head. Settles out quickly.
Some spotty lacing on glass.
Nicely sweet blueberries, just a bit of malt grian and nice tart hops finish.
Modestly carbonated. Very smooth and easy to drink.
Light bodied.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Sweet Water's Blue is a 1998 World Beer festival Bronze Medal Winner in the Fruit beer category. It's very refreshing and I might add that it has a taste of natural blueberry that is not in-your-face like so many others in this style. I found that this wheat beer was one of few fruit styles that was enjoyable to drink. Of course it was consumed on a rather hot day here in he---, uh, hello, Florida! Yeah, that's what I meant to say. Yeah, Florida. Well, it only seems like hell.

But never the less, this is a brewery from Georgia that I have been watching for some time. Only having their bluebery/wheat and the brown ale thus far, I look forward to some of their other more interesting offerings. Gona have to fire up the hearse and take a trip north of the border for some more, soon.
