Flying Fish Grand Cru
Day: 257 (since July 1, 2014)
Beer: Flying Fish Grand Cru
Brewery: Flying Fish Brewing Company
Style: Belgian Pale Ale
ABV: 6.9 %
Rating: 3.5 stars
Tasting Notes: Golden in color with a white head. A clove aroma. Flavor is hoppy and banana. Highly carbonated with a lingering clove taste.
Description: This Belgian-style strong golden ale showcases a variety of the ingredients and brewing methods that help differentiate Flying Fish beers. The Grand Cru is fermented at a higher temperature than our other beers adding an undercurrent of fruitiness and clove (although there is no fruit or spice in the beer). Very lightly filtered, the Grand Cru exhibits complex mouthfeel, strong malt flavors, a spicy hop presence and a soothing alcohol warmth, followed by a clean, dry finish. It is excellent with food as well as served by itself.
Comments: Bitterness = 10.4 IBUs.
