This poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma contains some citrus and wine element. The flavor contains some citrus, cherries, grapes, spices, and coriander. The aftertaste is very wine like with a booze element showing up. Overall this is ok but kind of a mess at the same time.

750 ml, "Bottled on 02/12/07." Thatís right; another cellar treasure. Pours a pinkish brown beer under a fizzy Belgian type head. Smell of grape juice, kind of like their later Sixty-one. Smell has that coriander, plus some aromatics probably from Belgian malt, and maybe a bit of the wine barrels, though itís almost like incense. Taste has very distinctive Pinot Noir, and still has plenty of yeast to it as well. I had this bottle sitting upright, but it must have gotten stirred around when I opened it. A lot of citrus to it as well. I guess I like the wits more when theyíve been duded up a bit beyond the natural versions of the style. Some oxidation midway through suggests that that probably should not age as long as I let this sit.

On tap, hazy golden orange pour with large off white head. Aroma of caramel, ripe fruit, slight citrus, grapes, slight yeast. Taste of caramel, green grapes, faint citrus, lychee, and a hint of pinot noir. Beautifully balanced between the two components of aging process. This beer is a winner, good job.

Draft. Very hazy dark orange with a thick creamy off white head. Nose is a bit perfumey, some yeast, floral notes. tastes sweet, some oakiness, a bit winey aftertaste, not as much as the description leads one to believe.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a slightly cloudy reddish orange, little to no off-white head. Aroma is citrusy and bright, with a latent funky, fruity, character. Not much wine in the nose, very subtle if at all. Body live and smooth, not unlike a tripel. Finish boozy and funky, rolling notes of wood, spice, citrus. Not generally my thing, but DFH totally pull this off.
