COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A big, Belgian-style Wit brewed with coriander and orange peel and fermented with Pinot Noir juice. After fermentation a fraction of the batch is aged in Oregon Pinot Noir barrels, and another fraction is aged on oak staves. The beer is blended together before packaging. This has been one of our most popular Limited Edition beers at both our Rehoboth Beach, DE brewpub and at festivals. It successfully marries the refreshing citrusy qualities of a Belgian-style white beer with the robust complexity of a bold red wine.

jason (1682) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2007
UPDATED: APR 27, 2007 750ml bottle. Poured a clear dark red body with hugh head. Aroma is very strong with yeast, spices and some berry, summer fruit. Flavor is slighty sweet with straberry, cherry, some small amount of spice, yeast, nectarine. This had some decent carbonation and was pretty smooth. Very very slight alcohol burn, virtualy undetected. Was completely different than what I was expecting from a Wit, but was not disappointed. Pretty good beer.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2007
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with slight hues of violet and a slightly pinkish small head. The aroma is of grapes and spice with a pleasant background of citrus. Taste is amazing with a wonderfull balance between malt, grapes, and spices. The finsh is dry and smooth with the alcohol being very well hidden. This is a great brew that is truly unique and very well balanced.

pineypower (2540) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Description was very interesting, so I had to try this one. Pours out a very attractive light ruby/rose color with a fluffy light pinkish head. Aroma is of spice (coriander) and oak. Taste is complex and full bodied, but at the same time very drinkable. Yeast, light fruit, maybe some banana. Coriander with oak, grape and a wine-like earthy note. Finishes dry. Very solid beer, I’m impressed.

JAXSON (529) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2007
UPDATED: APR 3, 2007 Pours a mysterious pinkish red which seems to constantly morph between bright ruby and deep amber when the beer is still. Aroma is banana, bubblegum, spices, and oak. Flavor is beautifully dry, with berries exploding throughout, with an oaky sourness. The red wine really comes through. Finish is dry and slightly bitter. This is a great offering from Dogfish Head.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2007
750ml bottle. Pours a pretty, bright red with a rosy white head. Aroma is like a normal Belgian white, maybe a bit more flowery. Flavor is very interesting. Very carbonated, fruity, with a nice dry wheat taste. It really does taste the Red and White of the title and it makes a complex and tasty combo. I’m not a huge wine fan but I still appreciate this one.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2007
Deep ruby and 3cm of frothy, pinkish white head. Nose of big time corriander and wheat with elements of citrus, yeast, and hints of acidic red wine and subtle oak. Mostly witbier aroma. Much more complexity in the flavor. Wheat and corriander are passively paramount, allowing strong supporting characters of oak and tannins, clearly pinot noir wine, orange rind, airy yeast, and a small dose of sugary sweetness. Medium/full body, balanced, creamy yet foamy. Good to see something new from DFH, and very good, also.
