Flying Fish Grand Cru Winter Reserve

People, I am about to do one of the things I hate almost as much as paying property taxes, almost as much as taking my kids for shots at the Pediatrician's office, and almost as much as... Well, you get the idea.

I'm shopping for a new car and I'll be sure to let you hear all the details later, so you can suffer along with me. You're welcome. I'm like that

Last night you might have found me drinking Flying Fish Grand Cru Winter Reserve brewed by Flying Fish Brewing Company in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. This is a new brewery to come down to South Florida, legally allowed through some loophole in the ridiculous brewing/distribution/retail laws that are antagonizing beer drinkers everywhere. This beer was so new here that Total Wine didn't even know how to sell me a single bottle yet. Mickey (not her real name) had to go and look up the codes for this and the four others currently on the shelves. One wasn't even in the system yet, which caused all sorts of havoc. Mickey was a good sport as she showed the guy in charge how to use his cash register override key. LOL. Keg buying guy behind me was pretty happy for the wait, too! Electric blue sky with silver clouds and a flying set of fish bones adorn the otherwise simple label.

Very faint aroma, fruity apple and apricot and yeast. Wow and I thought the aroma was weak. This beer challenges me to answer the question of whether I am drinking anything--very muted flavors, seriously! Sweet orange and fruit with more sweet honey. Pear juice. A bit syrupy with a little yeast texture. Low to no carbonation and extremely smooth. The 6.9% alcohol intensifies the orange, but multiplication time zero still equals zero if you get where I'm going with this. I guess this beer is all about the delicate nuances. Hahahaha, can you believe I just said that shit? I don't know what else to say. I can't believe I just drank a full one of these as it's mysteriously gone!
