A very good Belgian Wit. Smooth and even from the first sip to the last. Definately one of the top summer beers!

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is something ugly. A cloudy, bright yellow color with white haze throughout. Aroma is pleasant; full of lemons and citrus. Taste is hard to pin-point but very wheaty, spicy with alittle bit of soft cream. Iíve just never really enjoyed this style of beer, but for those who do I would recommend trying this one.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy yellow with a fairly dense snow white head. The aroma has smooth wheat malt, lots of gentle orange, light spiciness - everything in the right place. Medium / light body with some unobtrusive spritzy carbonation. The flavor starts with fairly sharp taste compared to the aroma and it is a bit watery. The spice hits from the initial taste and the orange is very downplayed. The wheat is noticed more on the finish when the spice subsides. The spice comes off more as pepper than coriander.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark yellow with a large fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass some.
The aroma is musty, earthy yeast with a little banana and clove.
The flavor is some slightly sweet and fruity malts followed by more musty earthiness. The mouthfeel medium to light and heavily carbonated.
Overall, a decent wit. Itís more musty and less spicy than most.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow with haze and floaties (unfiltered); nice head. Fresh-smelling nose. Light on the tongue; soft and chewy with a lively, spritzy carbonation. Malts were grainy and bready, with only the slightest hint of sweetness (I was glad it wasnít drenched in sweetness like some wits). Balancing bitterness to boot. Nice background aromas of esters, herbs and spices.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Pop the lid on this 12 oz Belgie White and get a sour gooseberry aroma, quite intereesting. Beautiful swirling pour with stuff swirling around from the gunk on the bottom of the bottle! Taste is spiced with orangy hints and wet hay. Coriander shmortiander. Nice drink and enjoyability factor. Has some malt or bitteress on the back sides of the tongue. Wheely wheaty. Good creamy carbonation, that is welcomed. A little too strong for my girlie taste buds. Not watered down. Not quite as refined as Whittekerke or Pax.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
6/14/2007: According to the label, Flying Dog Woody Creek White is a "Belgian Style Wit Beer". At any rate, the beer is a cloudy, pale yellow color. Actually, it looks like lemon juice in a glass. There is a large, foamy white head and lots of lively carbonation. At first the aroma stikes me as being more like that of a Saison than of a Belgian Wit since it is so grassy, floral, and spicy at first. Subsequent passes reveal the telltale wheat malt, sugary citrus, and corriander spice. The flavor is like that of a typical Belgian Wit wheat followed by some light lemon, a hefty dose of corriander, and a mild bitterness. Itís pretty good, although I think my homebrew Belgian Wit attempts might be just as good if not better. One thing that impresses me is that this beer actually has some body (medium) and isnít too light or thin like many Wit beers. Sometimes a little body behind the beer goes a long ways... In the end, this is a satisfying American-brewed Wit that exceeds whatever prior expectations I might of had for it. Not bad at all...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow / white, hazy, but clears as it warms. Head is medium, little lacing. Herbal spice and lemon aroma - smells refreshing. Nice and crisp when itís chilled, gains some minerals when warm. Lemon and light bitter rind at the finish. Better when cooler, but on a hot day, Iíd drink it quickly anyway

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy yellow color with a fluffy white head. A bit of lemon juice in the aroma, lotsa yeast, some hints of spice. Coriander dominates the flavor and as expected thereís a citrusy bite and bit of a bready finish. Lively carbonation rounds this one out. Good example of the style.
