Pugsley Brewing in Portland, Maine. I think I've had the Blueberry one before and even have a pint glass with that logo on it somewhere, but I believe this will be a new one here. There is a dog on the front of the label wearing a captain's rain hat. Behind him, in the boat, is a huge mound of apricots. Best Enjoyed Before May, 2012.
The aroma is very sweet. Intense fruity candy--I'll go with tangerine gummies. A little too much to be believable. Grainy with apricot flavors very noticeable, not nearly as potent as in the aroma. A little tart while also a bit sugary. There is a vegetal and earthy dirtiness that I totally DO NOT dig, weird flavors. For some reason I keep thinking "musty closet" too. Thin and watery, carbonation OK. The 4.7% alcohol is not a factor. Dry finish.
Not horrible, but this is the beer that will make you think Magic Hat #9 is the most awesome beer on the planet. And I say that just one week after totally dissing it.
