12 oz twist-off bottle poured into a Sierra Nevada imperial pint.
4.7% ABV, "Beer with natural flavor added" Best Enjoyed before J 13 notched on label.
A - Crystal clear golden yellow in color, Sea Dog Wild Blueberry is much darker than one's standard fruit-infused light beer. The tall column of white foam subsides quickly leaving little lace behind.
S - An eruption of blueberry aroma comes from this beer, more artificial than natural, but not syrupy or overburdened with sugar. It's aroma reminds me of the filled Twizzler bites which I'm now craving. Soft wheat and smooth pale malt provide a balancing, hop-less base.
T - Blueberry changes becoming, oddly, more artificial feeling while actually tasting more like real blueberries. Trying to wrap my head around exactly what's going on with the blueberry addition is exhausting, especially since I enjoy it. Moving on, Wild Blueberry has a rather plain, nonintrusive base of pale and wheat malt.
M - Medium-light bodied, Sea Dog Wild Blueberry has a strange "normal" level of carbonation, not a prickly over-carbonated level one might expect. It actually makes the feel a little thin as the beer finishes rather clean, lingering with a hint of the fruit.
O - I immediately feel in love with this beer at World of Beer on Brady Street in Milwaukee, served with a few small blueberries at the bottom of the pint. I find the tap version a bit more elevated than this bottle, but it's quite a refreshing, easy drinking fruit beer with good blueberry taste and wheat smoothness nonetheless.

A: Pours a light copper with a small white head.
S: Nose is loaded with blueberries, and a touch of wheat.
T: Strong wheat backbone, with solid blueberry overtones and a decent malty finish. A bit tart.
M: Medium bodied and on the smooth side.
O: Pretty good. Not as dry as their raspberry beer, but I think that's more apt for the blueberry admixture. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes fruit infused wheat beers.
