Top 10 beers in the world press

30th July, 2014 by Neal Baker

Woody Creek White, Flying Dog, Maryland, USA

woody-creekThe York Press reports on “another seasonal release from Flying Dog, and another fantastic label from Ralph Steadman.”

“This is an American wit that adheres more closely to the traditions of the style. Not as assertively hopped, nor as alcoholic, as the Poperinges, this is a traditional 4.8 per cent witbier spiced with orange peel and coriander seed”, enthuses the reviewer for the English journal.

With aromas of “walnuts and creamy porridge, run through with baked bananas, and a subtle orange zestiness”. The flavour is the clincher for this beer, as it is lead by a “zingy lemon sharpness that builds rapidly into a verdant meadow-scented bitterness, buffered by cream soda, a touch of vanilla sugar, and creamy oats.”

All of this “renders Woody Creek incredibly refreshing; a wonderful bracing beer to be drunk with gusto on warm, muggy days.”
