Michael’s, Marietta, GA, USA. 750 mL Corked and caged part of the Flying Dog limited release series. Just got this in GA.
HIGHLY carbonated. Enormous initial head that fades very quickly to virtually nothing. Head and lacing is thin and light. Butterscotch clouded yellow. Alcoholic pepper in the nose. Aroma is consistent with the style.
Mouthfeel is the missing component here. Too thin for the style and a little too sour. It lacks the depth and the funk of many similar beers, and in that respect is mildly disappointing.
Main problem here is the cost and therefore the value for money. With cheaper Fantôme available in GA, it’s a non-starter.
