Beer Wednesday – Flying Fish Exit 4
I grew up in New Jersey.
Go ahead, ask. You know you want to.
I know you want to.
Believe me, I’ve heard it a million times. I went to collage in Pennsylvania, and now I live in Maryland, so yeah, I’ve heard that joke for years.
Called an “American Trippel,” this has a flavor like a rich American blonde ale, but a much smoother mouth feel.
I liked the smooth hoppiness that it carried, with forward notes of fruit and a hint of black pepper. It had great lacing on the glass, and a nice, firm head when poured. I had expected a richer color but the clarity doesn’t do the taste justice.
Usually, a beer this color is thin and missing a lot of flavor. I was really happy when I tasted this. I wasn’t ready for the richness of this beer, but I am really looking forward to the other bottle I have sitting on my counter, waiting for next Wednesday’s blog post. That exit is much closer to home…
