Not overly aggressive as far as fruit beers go. The blueberry is apparent, though not overpowering. Orangish beer with a wheat slick mouthfeel.

Pours a pale yellow. Has a faint fruit and berry aroma. Taste like a blueberry Smirnoff ice with a sour malt aftertaste.

Draught. This is a pretty strongly flavoured blueberry ale with way too much fruit for my taste.

Clear gold with a thin cap head. The nose is like what your kitchen smells like after you bake blueberry muffins, but about 25% less delightful, with a wheat beer aroma. The flavor is way too sugary sweet with some candied blueberry and sugary ’dulce’. Definitely a girlfriend beer. Kinda cloying and gross actually.

Light gold pour with decent head. Blueberry aroma immediately out of the bottle, but then it settles more mildly and the wheat comes equally through. Taste is somewhat bitter at first before the blueberry hits. Medium carbonation. Somewhat watery palate. Flavors don’t really last long; aftertaste feels a little artificial. Decent fruit.

12 oz can from Evergreen Discount. Gold and hazy with a white head. Aroma and flavor of blueberries, wheat malts, light citrus. Light body with a thin, crisp feel. Pretty refreshing.

Pours orangish with a white head. Taste blueberry, sweet. I thought this was good. I would drink this again

I poured a 12oz can into the official Sea Dog Blueberry Ale shaker glass. It was canned on 9/14/13 and cost $4.99 for a six-pack ($0.83 per can or $0.07 per ounce).

Appearance: Hazy shade of dark straw, plenty of carbonation visible. Pours to a small, white, foamy head which leaves minor lacing and never dissipates completely.

Smell: Strong aroma of blueberry flavoring. Doesn’t seem authentic.

Taste: Fruity wheat beers are great introductory brews for the craft beer acolyte, but veteran drinkers like me tend to detect artificiality easily. Sea Dog Wild Blueberry Wheat Ale is definitely a misnomer since it’s not made with "wild" blueberries, and I doubt it’s made with actual blueberries at all since the can and website simply say "natural flavors." It’s a familiar flavor in mass consumer products like waffles, cereal, cookies, and other sweet treats. I wouldn’t say this beer is cloyingly sweet, just that the blueberry doesn’t seem authentic and is a little stronger than "subtle."

Since it’s so strongly flavored with blueberry, this beer is for those that like the taste of blueberry flavoring. It does have the generic pale wheat ale base to it, with truly subtle wheat character that imparts a slightly nutty, cracker-like taste. There’s no Bavarian qualities of banana or clove or other spices, so the beer is rather mild at the core. The blueberry flavor is strong, sweet and somewhat tart in the finish. It’s enjoyable in a small, standalone serving, but I think it would become abrasive on the palate after a while.

Drinkability: This is the kind of beer I would want to drink in the heat of the summer, especially considering it comes in a can and is portable. The body is crisp and refreshing with a fairly clean aftertaste (though some blueberry does linger). At 4.7% ABV it’s actually a little surprising there isn’t a little more taste since it’s quite light in body all around. But at least it does what it’s supposed to do.
