I have never been a fan of Flying Dog beers – they make good beer, but it’s not my style and has always seemed too weak. The beer guy at my local Whole Foods recommended this one and I thought “OK, why not?” What a shock when I opened this up and got the fruity hop, citrusy smell. Then the taste! The real hop taste knocks your block off with a flavor of bitter, resin hop overload - the flavor dissipates a bit too quickly and the bitterness lingers a bit too long (wish it were the opposite), but this is a good beer. Lots of Belgian style apple pie type flavor with spice and sweetness - but not overload. I had to look at the label again to make sure this was a Flying Dog beer? Yes, it was – what a pleasant surprise.

Only $3.50 on happy hour at Stub and Herbs (normally $5).

Pours a clear golden copper with a small slightly off white head that slowly settles into a small layer of lace over the top of the brew with a ring of foam and lace around the edge of the goblet.

Smells of sweet golden malt aroma with a touch of light Belgian candi sugar. Slightly fruity hops with notes of light lemon and wheat grass. Belgian yeast imparts a fruity aroma with a hint of very light spice.

Smooth malty body with a bit of a syrup consistantcy. Warm golden malt with a nice dry sweetness forms the main body. Fruity hops bring notes of apple and berry. Touch of Belgian yeast at the end and more fruit notes on the aftertaste along with a dry malt note.

Well balanced and very drinkable. Smooth and easy to forget that it's 8%, this one could get you in trouble after a couple.

Price: $5.00 Served In: Goblet
