Beer review from BA Mag Aug 2007.
So the Flying Dog goes Belgian, good timing for them as this style is about to peak in popularity. Brewed to style with coriander and orange peel, the malt shares billing with Belgian Pale malt, oats and unmalted wheat.
Completely cloudy from the yeast, very pale yellow color as well. The lace has no problem sticking around, even after a few big sips. Big and balanced aroma of coriander and orange peel, with a soft graininess and nutty yeast in the back. Thick layers of citrus and coriander hit the palate hard up front; a mild hop bitterness and a toothy graininess help keep everything level. A bit of bitterness from the coriander toward the end, with a harder citric tone. Finishes dry with a nearly clean aftertaste.
After first, we felt the spice registered a bit too high, but after a few sips this one grew on us and there was none of the soapy flavor generally associated with overspiced American-brewed Belgian White Ales. Comparable to its Belgian counterparts, and certainly one of the best of its style in the US.
