Flying Dog Brewhouse Rarities

24 Nov

A very limited release is coming from Flying Dog

Flying Dog Brewery knows how to make a good beer.  One taste of the Raging Bitch IPA is enough to convince even the most die-hard West Coaster that there are a few brew masters over on the east coast who understand that a heavily hopped beer can and should be well-balanced and full of flavor.  Now the boys from Maryland are releasing a special limited release line in 2012 called the Flying Dog Brewhouse Rarities.  A new beer is scheduled to be released on the 1st of every month and each one is the brain child of an individual brewer at Flying Dog.  Unfortunately, the only way to get a hold of one of these specialties is to find it on tap somewhere in the mid-atlantic.  It seems the word rarity is no understatement.

The first to be released will be an Imperial Hefeweizen, here’s the details:

  • ABV: 7.3%
  • Specialty Malts: Malted White Wheat, Flaked Wheat
  • Hops: German Perle
  • Tasting Notes:
    • Appearance: Robust gold with healthy yeast haze
    • Aroma: Sweet malt with banana and clove undertones
    • Mouthfeel: Full-bodied and highly effervescent
    • Taste: Bready with banana and bubblegum fruitiness
    • Finish: Crisp snap of malt and spice
    • Food Pairings: Washed rind cheeses, green apple, nuts, artisan bread, key lime pie
