Sea Dog Wild Blueberry Ale (7/10)

Sea Dog Brewing Company is located in Maine, so it's probably the perfect brewery to produce a Blueberry Wheat Ale like this.

The beer pours a cloudy golden color with a thin white head that is pretty persistent.

It smells like a Betty Crocker Blueberry Muffin.

The flavor starts with a slightly toasted grain flavor, followed by a mild hops bitterness.  This gives way to a mild blueberry flavor.  The blueberry flavor adds to the wheat ale flavor and doesn't make it seem like a soft drink.  I'd give it a solid 7/10.

Beer Advocate rates Sea Dog Wild Blueberry Ale 79-81 out of 100 or "average to good".

At the time of this writing, the beer was available at World of Beer at Easton.  It is available in bottled form at The Andersons General Store, Boulevard Carryout, Grandview Carry Out, and Palmer's Beverage Center.

ABV: 4.6%
IBU: unknown, but I'd estimate about 25
My Rating: 7/10
