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

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.

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 (5) - 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.

skmikeg (1207) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Pours pale yellow with a one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of cercel malts, grassy hops, sweet malts, pils malts, and some fruits. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium light body with a semi watery mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium-short finish. Overall, a decent blonde ale that would be nice on a hot summer day.

"Light cereal and flowery hops are the main players with an ever so slight bit of funk tartness and Belgian spice thrown in the mix. Some fruity pear and dust as well. meh. Lighter than I prefer, but it is a summer seasonal after all."

Pours a very pale,clear light yellow. Earthy aroma. Earthy malt flavor that ends a little bitter, like dirt. Interesting, light summer beer, but I wonít be drinking this again.
