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

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a stunningly clear straw color. The head is a one finger white shade. It doesnít have the best retention, and only leaves a small amount of lacing on the glass. Love the clarity, though. S: The maltiness doesnít provide much - maybe a touch of crackery malt - and the hops used are very earthy in their tones. There really isnít much of anything on the nose, good or bad. T: Again, there isnít too much here. A touch of wheat and cracker opens things up - and I mean a touch. The feeble malt base allows the hops to shine through, providing some finishing earthy, mildly sour notes. I was skeptical of the farmhouse label (and doubly skeptical when taking its clarity into consideration), but at the end of the day, I do notice a touch of funkiness, if only because itís hop-derived. M: Certainly, itís a crisp, dry brew, one thatís vibrantly carbonated and refreshing. I feel itís not really interesting enough to inspire great drinkability, but it goes down easily enough. O: Iím not sure where the ífarmhouseí term comes from here - the yeast is way too clean/subdued. As a simple blond ale, though, itís okay. I wouldnít pick it up again, though.

12 ounce bottle. Bright gold color. Small creamy white head. Fruity, bready malt nose. Light tart wheat malt flavor. Light in body with a yeasty touch. Notes of apricot and earthy hops. Soft dry finish.

Very simple mild beer. Easy light summer drinking but nothing really unique or special.

Easy drinking summer beer. Had a single bottle, not a bad little summer beer would buy again

Can. Decent overall beer. Average carbonation. Average hop and malt flavor. Clean finish. No outstanding qualities, but no off flavors either.

Bottle: It poured a golden color with a thin white head. The aroma was grainy with some spicy hops. The taste had some light fruit in it. It was enjoyable to drink.

I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours golden with a small white head. The aroma was grainy. The taste was crisp, bready, and some honey sweetness. It was good cold as a summer beer. As it warmed up, it wasnít as enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2015 For an ale very flavorful. Hay yellow color. Thick on the tongue. Small bitters and light hops. Also has an ending of granny smith apple peel. Tap

On tap at MusselBar. Okay. A bit bland really. Watery nose and weak forgetful taste. Happy trails.

Flying Fish Farmhouse Summer Ale is ok but nothing to rave about. Slight lemony aroma coming from a bright yellow pour. Head fizzes a bit on the pour but quickly dissipates to nothing. Taste is a little funky and somewhat lemony making it refreshing but kind of thin. Farmhouse Summer Ale seems to have some execution problems -- could definitely be better.

DarksideLuke (6) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2015 does not count
Undated 12oz bottle; sample courtesy of Perry County Beer. Pours yellow gold, very small head that dissipates into a ring. Tulip glass gives an earthy, grassy, lightly spiced, Belgium-y aroma. The body is light and refreshing. The bitter chewy wheat fore-taste quickly balances with obviously dry Belgium yeast aftertaste. The taste is certainly muted for itís 4.6abv, but thatís the charm to this very drinkable summery outdoorsy light farmhouse ale.
