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

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2014 Bottle. The pour was a murky medium yellow with some light brown highlights and a small creamy white head that reduced down to just a few small puddles that clung to the glass leaving behind some fair lacing.

The aroma had a slight funkiness to it along with a mild grain malt, a floral hop and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus and a mild peppery spice.

The taste was refreshingly yeasty and a bit funky with notes of citrus and caramel in the beginning and then became a bit malty and slightly bitter with a hint of spice at the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a strong yeasty, citrus flavor that faded slowly leaving behind remnants of a peppery spice.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry watery texture and an almost fizzy carbonation.

Overall a nice mildly bold yeasty brew with a good mix of flavors creating this yeasty, spicy, citrusy beer that is rather tasty...

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.

For an ale very flavorful. Hay yellow color. Thick on the tongue. Small bitters and light hops. 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 (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.

Draft. Clear golden color, medium white head. Aroma has light fruit, white pepper, straw. Taste is lightly spiced straw, dry finish. Interesting.

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."

Bright golden with slight white head. Subtle aroma, light yeasty, fruity, malty. Lemony. Grassy. Light malty. Very light pepperiness. Light dryness. Bigger light body. Pleasant warm weather beer. Good companion with food.

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.
