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. Dry quenching finish achieved by use of the traditional sour mash process

There was nothing that I could determine that would make this beer a summer ale. It tasted rather bland.

My favorite FF offering. A spicy, clean and refreshing brew. Great in summer or anytime.

Citrusy in aroma, same in flavor. A spiciness I can’t quite place. Light in color. Finishes clean. A good seasonal beer for the warmer months.

A lighter summer beer. Not too distinctive, but still pretty good. A slight bitter aftertaste.

Again, not a particularly beer from Cherry Hill, New Jersey’s Flying Fish Brewery. Whaddaya expect from the city that gave us the 80s one-hit wonder, The Hooters. Anyway, this ’saison’ is generally milder and more watery than I had hoped, though it’d be nice on a hot day when you’re either playing tennis or waxing the car. Slight bitterness in the finish.

(2002 edition)a light refreshing summer ale. yellow color with a white head. citrus nose with a yeasty aroma. nice clean palate, much like a hefe-weizen with more spices and a hoppy edge. hasa bitter finish with a lingering aftertaste

Flying Fish beers run the spectrum from light to dark. A good ’lawn-mower’ beer.
