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.

The aroma is heavy with cheese, vinegar, yeast, coriander, and bologna. The appearance is very red amber with a four finger head. The flavor is almost nothing like the aroma. It does have spice but it is mostly candy sugar sweet with bitterness up front. The finish has bananas and grape wine. The palate is smooth. I was really confused by this beer, the ratings were so high but this is actually bad.

The aroma seem a bit off with a mild flavor of cheese. The first sip is fizzy that covers up the initial flavors. Taste of oaks and white grape juice. The malts are covered by the rest of the taste of the beer. A look and feel of Champagne, not the best. Though worth a try

jason (1737) - 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.

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 (535) - 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.
