Flying Dog Table for Two

Time to write up another sample that was sent by the folks at Flying Dog Brewery. I received this bottle some time ago and I forgot about it until recently. Table for Two is labeled as a "Belgian-Style Table Beer" and is the result of a collaboration between two Maryland breweries, Flying Dog and The Brewer's Art.

In keeping with the theme of the name, Colleen and I shared the bottle and poured it into a couple of Chimay glasses. Table for Two is a golden-orange color with a thin, short-lived off-white head. The aroma is grainy and slightly sweet. The mild flavor comes across as bready, with just a hint of Belgian yeast, and a bit of honey sweetness. There's a note of pepper in the background too. The mouthfeel is effervescent and sticky. It finishes with a lingering bitterness and is moderately astringent.

I'm always happy for the opportunity to try out a new beer. Table For Two is a somewhat plain beer, with just a hint of Belgian-ness to it. We found it interesting, though not exceptional.

*FTC Notice: I drank and reviewed this beer of my own free will. No compensation was received for the review.
