Fruity beers are my thang and this is one of the fruitiest beers I've ever had. It's one of my favorites. It smells and tastes just like it's name, there is no mistaking the apricot. If you aren't a fan of fruity or dessert beers, this probably won't tickle your fancy at all...but if you do, you'll find this one pretty darn delightful.

apperance- A very nice haze golden color

Smell- Just like opening a jar of apricot jam

Taste- I loved this taste. Not to sweet and very crisp. A nice ale for a summer day.

Mouthfeel- nice crisp taste with a little bit of apricot at the end.

Drinkability- I loved this ale. This is a ale I would have on tap for a summer party and I think everyone would enjoy. I Put this at the top of my list for summer ales.

This fruit ale came recomended to me by Shangy's

This beer pours a clear, bright yellow with a thin head and no lace. The aroma is of apricot, dough and lemonade. The flavor is apricot. There are notes of lemon and malt sweetness. The apricot is foremost but not overwhelming. The mouthfeel is light and bubbly. Sea Dog apricot Wheat Beer is a good beer, light, refreshing and very drinkable, recommended.

appearance - Poured a golden color with nice white head that mellowed out.

smell - Apricot, peach, sweet fruits.

tste - Apricot present here some sweet fruits like peach. Some lemon present.

mouthfeel - medium body.

drinkability - For me it was a nice beer. I read a few reviews that said it was beer with some juice. I can see that. It was refreshing beer, and tastey, nice summer time beer. I don't like most fruit beers, but I liked this one.

Poured from the bottle, this beer came out a nice light amber/orange color. The beer gave a good head, but it did not stick around too long. The beer was clear throughout, with good carbonation, and very minimal lacing. The smell of the beer gave a nice apricot scent at first, which made way to the lighter wheat side, while the taste had a nice light apricot taste, that was not too overwhelming. Mouthfeel light and crisp, went down smooth. Very drinkable summer brew.

Pours a clear golden like color with a slight head which gives way to no lacing. The aroma is of apricot and is strong and very sweet along with some floral aromas. The taste is of a sweet malt backbone and sweet almost candied apricot. The mouthfeel is low to moderate carbonation. Overall it is a very nice summer beer, the taste is slightly articifical but it is still inviting a easy to drink.

We paired this beer with our Shrimp Po'Boys with peach, mango salsa. The beer was perfect for our intention, to compliment the salsa and tone down the spiciness of the shrimp. I would definitely recommend pairing this bear with similar summer style salsas but would limit my consumption to one of two beers, the flavor can begin to overtake the flavor of the food.
