Went out of my comfort zone to try this as I'm not keen on really fruity beer but was pleasantly surprised by its subtlety. Might order again in the future.

Poured from tap in Tallahassee, FL. Decent pale colored pour with a thin foam. May have had this beer a long time ago, but can't remember anything about if if I did.

I wish I had some long elegant review for you, but the reality is i couldn't stomach this beer long enough to be able to do that. Quite simply, this is the worst beer I've ever had. Barely any carbonation, and incredibly light mouthfeel with an awful, sour/spoiled and bitter blueberry aftertaste... it was all I could do to finish this beer

Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat Ale | Sea Dog Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this beer's head is one finger thick, solid lacing, and a clear medium golden amber body.

Smells like generous, real blueberry amidst really what I'm perceiving as a standard lager.

I taste basically a less bread-y blueberry waffle. Clean, smooth, and very, very refreshing.

Medium-light mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat Ale | Sea Dog Brewing Company has earned a 4.25 with me.

Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat Ale brewed by Sea Dog Brewing Company, with an ABV of 4.70% This brew pours out a nice golden amber color with a small white head. The head to this brew goes away fast. Thin spotty lacing on the glass. This smell is rich with Blueberry sweetness, grains and malts. You do pick up on some hop notes in the smell as well. Now for the taste, it is mild on the blueberry, and strong on the grains and malts. I will give it this it is different. Kinda on the fence with this one. It goes down nice and smooth, real clean finish. However I thought there would be more to this brew. More wheat is what I was expecting. The mouth feel of Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat Ale is smooth, clean, light, refreshing. This brew would be nice on a hot summer day. Overall I'm giving Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat Ale a 3.75 out of 5. I may look this brew up again to see if my opinion changes. Not the best I have had but not the worst by any means. Sea Dog Brewing Company, did an ok job with this one.
