On tap at brewery:
Cloudy white gold, though the full pour didn't give me and indication of initial head buildup. Medium thin rim could be better, and lacing could be heavier.

Nose is cereal and earthy spices, decently powerful here on site. I get a Cheerio flashback in a way. The lightest tang breaks up the "duller" scents.

A less full body than expected meets my palate, though as it passes over my tongue, there is a nice softness. Grain, bread, cereal, and a light touch of banana. Earthy spices (want to say like coriander or cardamom like) seem to lead to a dull wooden note that works nicely for me today (this could also be psychology in effect with the beer name). Warmth adds a little strength to the spice.

I really enjoyed this beer as showing a malty but not very sweet beer. No known actual spices added, but I can see the resemblance to the notes of a much lighter spiced Allagash or Optimal Wit.

Woody Creek White | Flying Dog Brewery. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this beer's head is three fingers thick, with lateral lacing, and a hazy pale golden body.

I smell very refreshing, aromatic lemongrass and citrus zest very nicely accented with peppercorn.

Tastes like this really hit the spot on this scorcher of a day. This seems to have one of the best blends and representations of the traditional elements of this style I've experienced thus far.

The mouthfeel is medium-light with fair carbonation.

I'll rate Woody Creek White | Flying Dog Brewery with an overall 4.75. Of course this is retired, but I still rather enjoyed my experience.

Pours a cloudy, yellow colour. Smells fruity, banana, earthy hops, hints of vanilla. Pretty light tasting overall, clean, fruity yeast, not much on other flavours. Would be a nice on a hot day.

From the bottle, it pours a light golden with a small head. Light scent. Taste is very light with a wheat flavor - very little malt on my tongue. Enjoyable but not memorable.

Not FD's best, probably why it's retired. Boring, but eh, it's beer.
