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.

From the 12 oz. bottle with a May 16 expiration date notched out of the label. Sampled on January 15, 2016.

The color is a deep golden yellow with a quickly dissipating white fizzy head.

I can pick up the blueberry sensations a yard from my nose with a toasted bread aroma.

Light yet smooth body.

The taste highlights the bittersweet flavors of blueberry hovering over the toasted malt and a clean hop finish. I am not a blueberry ale fan but this one is alright.
