Poured into a tulip. two-finger bone white head dissipating quickly, no lacing. Tons of carbonation streaming off the bottom of the glass.
Blueberries of course dominate the nose with some bitter hops coming through and a light pale maltiness supporting the background. Aromatics are surprisingly good.
Light, crisp blueberries go pretty well with the hop selection, which are tangy and citrusy as well, but very understated as one would expect from this kind of beer. The maltiness comes through mid palate which is actually pretty smooth and sustains a clean mouthfeel throughout.
I was actually pretty surprised by this. It is definitely not my type of beer but seadog was actually pretty refreshing and a nice change of pace.
Disclaimer: A buddy and I split a growler of Pliny the Elder last night so maybe my taste buds have been ruined for the week. Either way, seadog was a nice change of pace but I think there are better fruit beers out there.

Gold with a big, fizzy head. Head died before my enthusiasm for this beer did.
Smells like a floral, blueberry candle. Tates like cereal grains and blueberry extract. Harsh, abrasive carbonation. Odd, medicinal aftertaste that's just downright creepy.
Sea Dog blueberry is a gold, fizzy thing that is thus far the worst stop on my Maine blueberry beer tour. Bad dog, bad!
