Flight School is a Belgian Abbey-style ale brewed with five different malts – Mild, Munich, Honey, ESB and Belgian caramel malt. Dark Belgian Candi Sugar, added during the boil, contributes more fermentables while also adding darker color and rich molasses and caramel character. German and American hops add a subtle bitterness and earthy aromas. Flight School is fermented with a yeast strain originating from one of Belgium’s celebrated breweries. After primary fermentation is complete, the beer is aged on dried orange peel.

The result is a deep ruby Belgian-style ale that is both complex and bold. And, we think, quite tasty.

Draft at the brewery, 11/15/13. Pours a hazy rust color with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of big spicy notes, toasted malts, stone fruits, cranberry. The taste is toffee, dark fruits and a mild spicy finish. Medium bodied, low carbonation.

Keg @ COTU. The pour’s amber with a small head. Strong estery smell. Plenty of sweet fruits, red berry, Belgian yeast. The taste is pear, more red fruits, mellow sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not bad.

Poured as a 2 oz sampler at Virginia Beer Live 2013. May have been suffering from palate blowout. Major extract tang to this - it tasted like a first time homebrewer’s beer. There were hints of spices on the aroma, but the taste was very bad and actually caused my wife to gag. Won’t drink this again.
