I tolerate this style better than most beer drinkers. I love a change of pace with a little fruit but still having a great beer taste. This is pretty typical of fruit beers.

The color is weak and beer like. It is pretty clear. The aroma is a distinct sweet (apricot) smell, with beer.

The taste works, is is a great blend of fruit with wheat ale. The aftertaste is odd, but appropriate. Beer plus fruit. Overall, this is like manhy others. I have several other Sea Dogs to try this week. I hope I don't get sick of them.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam and tons of carbonation bubbles seen streaming up through the brew. The head fades quite fast leaving only a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – A strong peach and apricot aroma is the bulk of the smell. These are combined with a bit of a wheaty and grassy smell producing a nice sweet, fruity aroma overall.

Taste – The taste begins with a wheat bread and apricot flavor right from the start. These flavors create a base for the brew with the wheat remaining relative constant and the apricot gaining strength as the flavor advances. Along with the slight increase in the apricot, comes some flavors of a peach nature, accentuating the fruity nature of the brew as the taste advances. A very light grassy flavor joins the taste at the end of the flavor profile, leaving one with a medium sweet, but rather crisp, fruity apricot and peach flavor, to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. Both are fantastic for the fruity flavors of the brew and make for a very refreshing and more crisp brew overall.

Overall – A not overly sweet and quite drinkable apricot ale. Rather refreshing and easy drinking.
