Sea Dog Raspberry Wheat Ale

Posted: May 12, 2014 in Fruit/Vegetable Beer, Reviews, Sea Dog Brewing Company

The other half made a beer run for me last week since work was so busy. At our local beer store, there are two coolers of cold single bottles, which are usually leftovers from when four or six-packs are broken up. This one has been sitting in the cooler for at least a few weeks, because every time I make a beer run, I consider buying this one, but then second guess myself and think that I’ve reviewed it, so it never makes it home. The other half wanted to try this one too, so let’s see how it went.


ABV: 4.5%

Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Sea Dog Raspberry Wheat Ale is a dry, crisp refreshing ale with the added essence of raspberries.”

Random: I still think this label is one of the more simple, but exceptionally cute despite its simplicity.

This brew poured with a one finger, white head that dissipated quickly and left absolutely no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, straw yellow color with high carbonation visible. The nose had some wheat and raspberry extract to it. No surprises so far. The taste was light and bordered on watery. It had notes of artificial raspberry with wheat and a touch of grain. There wasn’t much else to this and it was really one-dimensional. As mentioned before, it had a thin body and moderate carbonation. The finish was quick with artificial raspberry that was apparent in the taste. This wasn’t a bad beer, but it really didn’t have any depth. If you are looking for a really light fruit beer that a macro drinker would enjoy, this one would be it.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
