Full review available at: http://beer47.com/2009/02/flying-dog-woody-cr ----- Condensed review: ----- Appearance. This beer has cloudy yellow-orange color. The head is white and doesn’t last very long. ----- Smell. The bouquet has citrus, lemon, with a hint of orange and spice. The aroma has a hint of unroasted grains. ----- Taste. The taste is crisp with light citrus, like lemon with a hint of coriander. It is sweet and refreshing with very little bitterness. ----- Mouthfeel. This beer is light bodied, crisp, and has no bitter aftertaste. ----- Drinkabili This is a smooth witbier and it is easy to drink more than one of these in a single session.

Holmen1 (3220) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2015
Fra flaske (fra Voldby Købmandgård), på RBHD-treff hos OG: lett uklar gylden med kort bruseskum. Frisk og tydelig aroma av citron (og litt mynte). Appelsin/citronfrisk smak med snev av krydder, lett å like. Tilbakelent bitterhet og kort ettersmak gjør den også lett å helle innpå.

Sigmund (5566) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2015
Shared 355 ml bottle at local tasting, from Voldby Købmandsgaard. Slightly hazy golden colour, moderate white head. Moderate but nice aroma of citrus, a hint of coriander. The flavour is fairly decent too, but would probably be even better if the bottle had been fresher. Some malts and citrus, only a hint of coriander.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a tiny, quickly dissipating head. Aroma of wheat and orange peel. tastes of wheat, banana bread and orange but due to a watery palate it doesn’t last long.

Hazy yellow and a rough covering of whitish head before it decides it has had enough of being on top of my beer and this it is better served by buggering off to who knows where. Mostly clove and coriander aromas with the orange peel and some lemon pith playing a secondary role. The flavour is a bit muted with the lemon pith playing the major role in the flavour profile. I expected a little more to be honest, especially considering I paid some good money for it to be conveyed across to the other side of the earth in a good condition. The lesson is threefold I suppose: 1. if you’re going to export, look after your product so that it is at its best when it is ready for tasting. 2. If you can’t, expect below par reviews. 3. For reviewers, drink local for your benchmarks or be prepared to travel.
