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.

Nice Pour but the flavor is immediately overwhelming by alcohol. Aroma is light sweetness.

wxman (1389) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2014
On tap at Global Brew. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a nice white head. A bit of a smokey aroma. Sweet pale malt taste, but a pleasant sourness is balanced with it. Alcohol is noticeable, but not compelling. There is alcohol warmth as well after the swallow. Good one.

chucklemation (411) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Pours a golden orange with lots of sediments and a foamy white white head. Has a wine and oak aroma, along with spice and orange. Flavor is wine, orange, and coriander. Has a full body feel. The combination of spices, fruit, and wine is unique, but Dogfish head pulls it off brilliantly. Delicious.

NeuroPliny (141) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Tasted on Tap at DFH with ML. Aroma is orange, coriander, grape juice, and sour cherry. Flavour is grape, strawberry, orange, coriander, and oak. Light mouthfeel with great carbonation. What an interesting take on a Belgian style-wit!

maxwelldeux (3466) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head and quite a bit of floaties in there. Nose is fruity with elements of both sweet and sour in there, as well as a bit of wood. I also get just a little bit of funk in there once it warms up a tad. Taste is definitely sour and fruity, yet hides the 10% well. Not a bad drink, though probably not something I’d return to.

750ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear gold, thin white head. Aromas of vanilla, grapes, strong grassy lager, strawberries and cream, light Belgian yeast. Taste is sweet, vinous. Thick texture. Good sipper.

Associated Supermarket, Buskwich growler: Pours a reddish color with a white head. Aroma is wine, fruitiness, wood, spice, and yeast. Taste is somewhat sweet. Alcohol was well covered. Slightly citrusy. Plenty of the grape. Easy to drink with a nice mouth feel.
