A: Clear, pale amber, with a small finger of head that vanished quickly.
S: The apricots are definitely there, up front an pleasant. Malted grain is distant in the background. There's not much else -- no depth/complexity to the aromas.
T: Mildly sweet malt, with mild, slightly tart apricot flavors. Maybe a little hops bitterness, but just enough to notice. Basically, it's pretty meek in the taste department, with no strong flavors, pleasant or otherwise.
M: Moist at first, with decent carbonation and crispness. The finish was rather dry.
O: A fruity version of the session beer, best drunk cold and quickly. It wasn't bad in the sense of unpleasant flavors, but it was just so bland. I wish the brewers would have had the guts to put some real apricot and beer flavor in it -- they might have had a much better product.

Bought this for the wife but I wound up drinking it,poured a clear light golden with a decent one finger white head that is gone pretty quickly.Artificial apricot and big sweetness in the nose not much else to be had maybe a bit of toastiness.Real cloying on the palate apricot flavor is there in a big overly sweet form nothing els can cut thru the sweetness there.The sweet flavors are overbearing it might be good for a non beer drinker but the sweetness was just to much for me.

A 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. The beer was a golden color with a fairly small head, even with an aggressive pour. Apricot aroma, very sweet. The taste was the same as the aroma, along with a taste of grain. I thought this beer was a little too sweet for my taste; wouldn't want to drink more than one of these at a sitting.

If you like apricot candy you will love this beer. i however do not. I was hoping for less of of an apricot and more beer but alas. This is overwhelmingly apricot aroma, like that of a jolly rancher. The appearance is average for a wheat light golden in color. The taste is sweet and dry but has to much of fruit flavor with no finish. This could be very drinkable for some but to much for me.

12oz brown twist off bottle with a "Best Enjoyed Before" freshness date on the label.
A- Crystal clear walnut stain color, quick to froth but quicker to dissipate into nothing. Almost looks like a wine-cooler.
S- Apricot hard candy, faint grain in the back. Sterile ... uneventful aroma.
T&M- Light refreshing crispness, light bodied. Basic fruit flavor of apricot on top of a bland beer base. Finishes dry with only a memory of the fruit and a slight astringent grain.
D- Bartles & Jaymes anyone? Boring, just an other bland fruit beer. They must of broken out the cookie cutter for this one. What is the next flavor of the week going to be? FYI, Apricot is so yesterday.

Appearance: clear, no head, dark gold
Smell: peaches, apricots, and wheat
Taste: I think it tastes like a beer version of peaches and cream
Mouthfeel: sweet, light, watery, and smooth
Drinkability: I had their variety pack, so all of these reviews are similar. This was my second favorite of the three and was very drinkable especially in the summer..My experience is Sea Dog does good fruity beers..I could drink a lot of this in the summer, especially as an overall drink.

Yellow beer with no signs of apricot in it, very thin white head that immediately leaves this realm. Smells of apricot and sugar.
Apricot and cereal flavors, with added sugar in the taste. Not terrible, but tastes so unlike just straight up apricot the fruit. Can't finish dry or clean, that sugary kids cereal mouthfeel just hangs on throughout the beer. Not my cup of tea, like most of the Sea Dog offerings, this one is just a straight up unitiated chick beer.

Apperance - Effervescent clear golden pour. Initially a fluffy white head disappearing quickly and leaving no lacing.
Smell - Dried apricots and light malts.
Taste - Mild apricot sweetness.
Mouthfeel - Crisp and effervescent. Light bodied.
Drinkability - Nice and easy to drink, but I would have liked more apricot taste.

Scents of apricot. That's about all I picked up. Flavor is mostly of apricot, but an off sort of apricot, with a slight hint of malt. No bitterness, no wheat. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation. This combines with the flavor to make it drink a lot like a fruit soda. It's refreshing I suppose, but not really at all what a good fruit beer should taste like. The fruit is there, but it doesn't taste quite natural and the wheat is non-existent, though the bottle only calls it "Apricot" so maybe they changed something. It's nothing special, and fairly mediocre as far as fruit beers go.

A: Amber with an offwhite head, that goes away quite fast.
S: When poured the apricot really hits you. Apricot (dried), some malt. After a while the presence of apricot diminishes, red berries, some buttery tones.
T: Malt, apricot, a bit perfumed, pez. Aftertaste of dried apricots and - cheese doodles! And pez. Taste not bad but strange. Maybe it takes some getting used to.
M: Tiny bubbles of carboration, light in body. Kind of thin, almost flat to the feel, yet get's you burping immediately.
I had hopes for this, but felt a bit let down. The apricot's there, but the thin quality and light body is not a good partner for the apricot taste. I can't decide wether I like it or not, but I had hoped for a richer body. I can't find the wheat anywhere. I will have to try this one soon again, maybe get a pair of them, because even though I was dissapointed I feel there's something there to be discovered. Or maybe that's just wishful thinking.

Sea Dog- Apricot Wheat
Appearance- Golden orange with no head.
Smell- Strong apricot. Nothing else.
Taste- Big apricot flavor with a touch of wheat/ straw.
Mouthfeel- Very sweet and crisp.
Overall- Not much to say here, it tastes of Apricots. Not bad tasting but 1 is enough. This is a desert beer, or a beer for girlie girls.
