Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
A tribute to the highly drinkable "every day" beers from French-speaking Belgium. Contains Belgian two-row pale malt and 7% wheat. This beer is lightly filtered with an earthy, spicy hop character from imported Styrian Goldings hops and a beautiful rich creamy head from the wheat.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - This is a very yellow beer, with a nice refreshing color. Not heavily carbonated though it had a nice head when it was presented by the server. (This beer was served on tap in a pint glass).

Smell - Fresh smelling with many aromas. Not boring.

Taste - This beer has plenty of flavor. None of which I can put my finger on. I am not a fan of most summer beers because of their typical fruitiness. This beer certainly does not taste fruity. Not simple and boring, but instead a crisp and zingy taste.

Mouthfeel - This beer is thin and clear. It goes down easily. It is very light on the palate.

Drinkability - Though not enamored on the taste at first, Flying Fish Summer proved to be an interesting and refreshing beer. I enjoyed it with a light dinner of salad and pasta and it was good enough that I had another. Probably one of the best "summer" beers that I have had.

Serving type: on-tap
