3.48/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a muddled straw color, filled with a suspended haze of a slightly darker shade that just hangs in limbo. Foamy and cloudy white head forms and reduces to a content quarter-inch and leaves a bit of lacing at the top. Aroma is a backlog of wheat, toppled over by some spice and fruity zest. Coriander, mild clove, orange peel, lemon zest. The wheat is mild but certainly a nice canvas for the rest of the aromas to work on. Overall pretty mild, borderline weak, but then again this is not intended to be a "big" beer, so it works well, given what it's trying to achieve.

The flavor is a little more watery and empty than the aroma would make it seem, but that's not to say it's completely without flavor; just a bit... muted. Dry grains, wheats, kind of musky, possible from the hops? Light lemon zest hits the tongue up front but is quickly overtaken by the grains, wheat, and malt. Some coriander is detectable in the finish, though the clove - not so much. The Belgian yeast doesn't go unnoticed, but it's not quite the star of the show as it is in many authentic Belgian beers. Middle of the sip contains a mild astringent, metallic flavor, but it quickly subsides and doesn't get in the way too much. Finish is mild bread, grains, and wheat; slightly watery with a dry finish. Thin body, highly carbonated.

At 4.8% ABV, you could drink these suckers all day and be fine. Seems like a good one to drink on a really hot summer day. Other than that, there isn't much to it. Not bad, but nothing too special, either.

3.43/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Served cold poured in a pilsner.

A- Golden hazy hue with minimal head. Not as hazy as most whites.

S- Orange and corriander are dominant.

T- Taste reflects the aroma, however flavor seems somewhat watered down.

M- Not as full bodied as most whites. Finishes clean.

O- Decent belgian white. I was somewhat disappointed because I was expecting more from Flying Dog.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle, with coded bottled on date printed on the label. Another beer from Flying Dog's regular line-up that I have yet to try. Been wanting to have this for a while now; acquired a single bottle at the local Binny's. Expectations are decently high.

Poured into a Lagunitas mason jar.

A - Pours a beautiful golden yellow-orange colored body with some bubbles lazily floating topside and lots of fine sediment twirling in the glass. Two to three fingers of big fluffy towering white froth. Looks pretty damn nice.

S - Smell is of grass, clean wheat, crisp grain, some pilsner malt smell, some must, & orange and lemon zest.

T - Taste follows the nose: crisp wheat, grain, lemongrass, orange zest, lemon zest, floral coriander, and just the right amount of clove presence. A harmonious balance of citrus fruit and floral aspects.

M - Feel is light bodied, with moderate carbonation. Finishes clean, with a slightly grassy, sticky finish.

Overall, an easy drinking witbier from Flying Dog. Crisp, floral, citric, and refreshing with a low 4.80% abv. Definitely a sessionable beer, one I could see pairing well with some summer / autumnal barbeque. Recommended.

Flying Dog Woody Creek Belgian Style White ---4/5.
