Flying Dog Woody Creek White
Another summer beer for me to try. Saw this at the liquor store today and I was in the mood to try a new summer witbier. As with typical witbier or white beers, the Woody Creek White is brewed with coriander and orange peel.
The beer poured a hazy orange color, as I was expecting from a Belgian Style Wit. Nice white head with a bit of lacing. I poured the whole bottle, into a pint glass and there was a bit of orange sediment that was sprinkled across the top of the foam. Kind of looked like cinnamon on a latte.
Very lite on the aroma, subtle coriander and yeast notes. Nothing off putting or intriguing.
This beer was refreshing as the style should be, dry and crisp. There was a bit of tang from the bitter orange peel that really worked well with the dryness and the bit of hop spice on the finish.
Great hot weather beer. I could drink these all day on summer day in front of the bbq. Good flavor and refreshing.
