One of My Favorite American Made Witbiers,Flying Dog Brewery Makes some Great Beers,and "Woody Creek" is simply an Outstanding Witbier IMHO~
Poured into a Sam adams Pint Glass~Right away you know this is a wheat beer,Cloudy and Hazy with a nice frothy,Fluffy head that forms instantly,[about an Inch] and last quite some time for a wheat Beer,a straw color with the slightest touch of an almost orange Hue,a Very Pretty Beer Indeed.
This Beer smells Amazing! you really get that Orange right up front,and a Nice wheaty Aroma mixed with Assorted Citrus Scents..Very Nice!
as GR8 as this beer Looks and Smells,it Taste even Better,The first time I tasted this Beer,I said WOW so loud that it freaked my dog out,and he ran under the bed;)
Very Tasty Beer,Smooth and super drinkable,Crisp and clean to the max,of course you get some of that Orange and just a Hint of sweetness up front,but not too sweet,and a nice peppery finish with a touch of Mild Hops and very lively Carbonation you can feel as it glides right down..Smoooth!
This Beer goes Gr8 with Fruit,Oranges,Pineapple,Melon and such,awesome with white Grapes! perhaps not the best choice for burgers,dogs,wings and other pub Grub,I pretty much Love this Beer as an "Apertif"~ In other words,a Fantastic beer to have Before a meal,a few days ago I was having a BBQ with some friends,and we had many Ice cold Woody Creeks before Dinner,[Steaks grilled with Onions & Peppers]and then switched to Dead Guy Ale to enjoy with the steaks~Perfect!
Cheers & Peace2All.

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. 1173 on the bottom of the bottle, presumed April 27, 2013 bottling date. SIngle purchased at World Market (Charlottesville, VA).

A: Barely hazy honey gold, it doesn't really look like a witbier as there is no haze. There is a short-lived nearly white 1/2-1 finger of head with a scraggly line of lace.

S: The aromas are nice with good estery floral and yeast aromas and soft pilsner grain.

T: The flavor is also solid with nice yeasty esters, light floral touch, orange is more prominent in the flavor and the coriander note adds a little spicy bitterness, a nice counterpoint in an overall solid beer.

M: Way too fizzy and carbonated for the style, it hurts the thicker, creamy feel that the wheat and oats usually give this style. Body is appropriately light.

O: There are a couple of things to fix (mainly feel with a decrease in carbonation) but overall this was a lot better than I expected and a solid beer in the aroma and flavor departments. Good but not quite great job by FD.

look: 1 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: it poured a relitivly clear straw yellow color untill the yeast sediment in the bottle fell into the glass then it became hazy and there were chunks... of sediment floating around. A very small bright white head that fell quickly.

S: Correander and bananna, orange peel and star anise.

T: A sweet start with a bready malt flavor and the same correander orange peel vibe from the aroma. Detectable bitterness but still on the sweet side.

M: thin body and light carbonation

O: The sediment turned me off right away. To be honest it had a decent flavor but I had to dump this one.. maybe next time.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 ounce brown glass bottle into a standard clear pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy light golden with a decent amount of white foamy head. Leaves a little sticky lacing on the glass as it recedes fairly quickly. Maintains a thin white cap of foam throughout.

Smell: Sweet, yeasty and faintly spicy. A little wheaty as well.

Taste: Very good. I like Belgian witbiers, and this is a very good interpretation of one. A good balance of wheat, malt, spices and just a hint of hops.

Mouth feel: A little watery with light carbonation, like a good Belgian witbier.

Overall: I love Belgian Witbiers in the summer, and this is a good one. I drank up my six-pack fairly quickly and would definitely buy it again. Nicely done.
