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

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter glass. 4.7% abv.

Appearance- Pours a mostly clear amber orange with 2 finger head quick to dissipate.

Smell- Fresh, strong apricot aroma, wheat malt.

Taste- A light biscuity malt lends a sweet flavor with a sweet apricot that builds up. The apricot flavor is more than subtle, yet not overpowering. The finish is very clean, not too sweet, and ends with a great balance of apricot and wheat. Sweet finish, not bitter in the least.

Mouthfeel- Light body with good carbonation.

Overall- Despite the low reviews this is a very good and nicely balanced fruit beer. Good fruit and malt use. Very easy drinking and highly agreeable. I would get this again in the future.

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.
