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

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

Clear, with very tiny suspended particles, super light gold. Thin foamy white head. Light carbonation. Zesty wheat aroma laced with spicy/floral hops. Crisp and refreshing. A bit husky in the base malt flavor, with traces of Belgian malt flavor, but more than tolerable and it dissipates quickly. Clean and relatively dry. Wheaty with a nice snappy bite to it. Spicy hop flavor and lingering aftertaste. Light to medium body. Nicely balanced with evident Goldings notes. Finishes a bit sweeter and slightly more floral in the hop aroma and flavor. A Belgian style brew, hardly. More like a very tasty hopheads American Wheat. Thanks to jca_lbi for the sample.

2002 Edition: It seems a little darker and a tad sweeter than last year’s version. This years edition has a little more body (which is welcomed IMHO). 2001 Edition: Nice mid summer beer. Thirst quenching, moderately hoppy. Golden yellow with a slight hazy appearance. Just a nice summertime, on the backporch, sunset kind of beer.

Great golden color with rich head. Had a little more bitterness than I like. Overall, not a bad beer.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2001
Slightly hazy; creamy golden yellow. Crisp, clean and fresh. Light, yet flavorful and interesting. A good ’summer’ or ’lawnmower’ beer... but it’s a little bit more. Finishes somewhat dry, and has a nice aftertaste: delicately hoppy and sweet, some bitterness. Interesting yeast aroma. Pretty quaffable.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2003 An average beer but pretty decent to enjoy the hot months of the year, some thin & bland flavors though

I actually thought this beer had too much going on for it to be an enjoyable summer beer. Had it down on the boardwalk, and kinda wished I had ordered something else. This is probably very good with food, but as a summer beer, this is not my cup of tea (or pint of beer).

Very light, good tasting beer, but not worth the price in my opinion.

Not a big fan of summer ales, but this one seems quite solid.
