COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Forgotten Flem is a fitting tribute to the many Belgian Farmers who settled the prairies of Southwest Minnesota. Brewed in a farmhouse brewery within feet of hop bines and barley fields, Forgotten Flem Ale is a product of genuine ingredients and classic brewing technique. Multiple yeast strains drive complexity and months of aging develop nuanced yet distinct flavors. Even today it’s not unusual to hear the thick accents of French and Belgian Farmers in and around Lucan. We’re very pleased to offer them a taste of home!

Pailhead (5074) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle: The aroma is moderate-heavy dusty yeast, light pepper, apple, faint citrus, some strange grassy/floral notes. It pours a mostly transparent amber with a touch of haze. It has a very large creamy yellow-tinged off-white head that leaves a lot of soapy clumps on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of apple and strange citrus flavors. The finish has lots of dusty yeast, moderate herbal notes, lemon peel, pepper, grass, and floral notes. It’s light bodied with heavy carbonation that comes across prickly at times. Overall, this just tastes strange and the flavor combination is rather unpleasant.

Bottle. Cloudy golden/yellow pour with white head. Smells of wheat and sweet malts. Decent farmhouse type ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It’s heading in the right direction. Hazy, orange hues with a moderately pillowed head. Citric fruits and bready yeast, though the flavor seems a bit thin. Moderate palate without substantial acidity. As for the name, I could do without any suggestion of "phlegm". Bottle.

OxfordBeer (16) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2012
12oz bottle to Tulip glass, about a 8oz serving. Nose is spicy, apple cidar and some orange peel maybe, a little sour tartness to it. Picking up some dried fruit but not very potent. Pours clear and a vibrant orange color. High carbonation with a rocky off-white head leaving laces on the glass. Taste is not too bitter but has a tart spicy yeast character than shines here. Light bodied and very carbonated, almost just foaming on the palate. Finish is fairly short; its dry, crisp and refreshing. After a few sips, I started tasting a slight toffee malt flavor in the finish. Fan of the style, but this beer is just average.

Not a fan. Tastes like an over ripe piece of old fruit. Tastes spoiled. Barely finished the half a bottle I had.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2012
12 oz bottle; thanks Tyler!! Pours clear dark orange with huge, eggy white head fading slowly; earthy lemons, mild spice, maybe some rye; grassy and light wheat; drinks with a doughy dryness and stale lemons; chalky dryness in the finish; not sure what it is, but there is a spice or malt type rubbing me the wrong way; kind of think it’s rye; either way, it works more in the aroma than it does flavor wise

Bottle from Merwin Liquor, Falcon Hts. Gold color and a very tall, long lasting, white head. Aroma has lots of brett. Flavor is dry with more yeast, as well as an herbal character with dry grass. Bone dry finish.
