Flying Fish Exit 6 Wallonian Rye
I picked up a bottle of Flying Fish Exit 6- Wallonian Rye (Belgian Style Ale with New Jersey Rye) from Al's on Hampden. The beer pours a golden color with a lofty and foamy white head that sticks to the edge of the glass. The aroma consists of banana, candisugar, rye, and a slight hint of pepper. The taste consists of banana, candisugar, and pepper and has a good bit of carbonation on the tongue. The beer finishes with a pepper and rye bite, but isn't all that dry. The alcohol content is 7.5% ABV. I really enjoyed the complexity and dynamic nature of this beer. It started out sweet with banana and candisugar, but was completely balanced out with pepper and rye, giving the beer a nice bite.
