3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Couldn’t resist picking up a bottle of this one - Deltron 3030 is one of my favorite albums. I had low expectations (Dogfish’s more experimental brews are a definite mixed bag), but was rather impressed. Pours a slightly hazy straw color, with a thick head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, and the spices typical of a Belgian wit. The flavor has more of the notes from the odd ingredients. Apple definitely comes through, although it’s far from a cider, or even a fruit beer. A tiny bit of cayenne burn on the finish. The end result isn’t all too far from a nice Belgian wit, but more interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden color, little head. This had all the character of an imperial hefe. Voices and wheatlike flavor. Thick mouthfeel, maybe a little cloying. I didn’t get any weird spices at all...which I guess should be a negative, but I sort of prefer it this way.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Has a banana and clove like scent with some apple notes in the background. Pours a nice light golden apple juice like color. Taste is rather weird and not in a good way. Get some spicy notes and some cardamom like flavors similar to Poppaskull, not much cilantro and has an after taste burn from the cayenne. Glad I got to try it but won't seek it out again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle from Liquor Loft. Yellow pour with an inch or so white head and spotty stick. Aroma is grain, banana and spice. Tastes are pepper, coriander, pear, citrus, honey, candy sugar, belgian yeast, pear and herbal. Medium palate that finishes slightly dry and floral bitter. It’s ok - definitely not worth the $$.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured from the bottle with a thick frothy white head. Golden, much like the apple cider on which it is based. Fruity aroma, as expected, but there’s a lot going on taste-wise. The brew hs a cidery appeal with some dryness & it finishes with a little bit of heat, although not overpowering. I was drawn to this due to the fact that it was brewed with farro & included cilantro, which is probably my favorite flavor ever. However, I neither smell nor taste the cilantro. My guess is they used coriander seeds because there is a slight hint of that. Nothing green & fresh here. Would be decent in the fall.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2012 Pours golden with quickly dissipating head. Aroma is slightly fruity yeast. Taste is mostly witbier with some spice and a slight cinnamon aftertaste. dry mouthfeel. The alcohol is well hidden but this is not something I would go out of my way to drink again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy golden orange on tap with a thick white, dissipating head and decent lacing. Aroma of german wheat and yeast, with a slight hint of apple. Taste is pretty much all weiss, with a slight peppery spice. Meh, dogfish tried too hard again. But I suppose I could drink a lot of these if I was trying to get drunk.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours straw with inital froth head. Nose is a bit of apple cider, and maybe white wine. Mix of apple cider, white wine and a hint of wit yeast in there as well, and a nice peppery finish. Creamy in the mouth with medium carbonation. Great beer and a neat twist on the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Helping pay for another of Sam’s trips to find rare grains that make beer taste like this ... Pale deep golden pour thin white head no lacing .... aroma of fruity yeast, light apple and wheat .... taste is of fruity belgian yeast, light apple and a hint of pear ... very light spicy bite, slightly herbal (the cilantro maybe?) with a hint of wheat ... definitely as described, but the flavors are average ... finishes dry and fruity with a light spiciness and a little heat ... just tastes like a saison/wit/cider .... meh at least the abv is hidden well
