In order to drive the beer count in my fridge down, I’m going to try doing two reviews each night. Tonight, I’m succeeding and drinking/reviewing my second beer of the night: Flying Dog Woody Creek White.
This Belgian white had a lot of white fluffy head when I poured it. I let it sit for 5 minutes and the head dissipated leaving plenty of lace on the glass. The beer is a beautiful cloudy yellow color.
As I sip and enjoy, I can’t help but chuckle in thinking about how I used to dislike Belgian whites. I think the flavor just didn’t agree with my [previously inexperienced] pallet.
I can’t say that the taste is unique or surprising. Bready and yeasty with a hint of citrus. Relatively mild. The most recent thing I have that can compare is a Hoegaarden, which I recall being quite strong flavored.
I won’t drag out the review any longer (I have delicious Indian food waiting for me!). Flying Dog is one of my favorite breweries, and I’m almost always impressed with their beers. The Woody Creek White is no exception. Go try it.
