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

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flying Fish beers run the spectrum from light to dark. A good ’lawn-mower’ beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
