Malty and tart come from this cloudy reddish brew with an offwhite head of medium bubbles. The full bodied brew is sweet with a hint of tartness and a bit of that alcohol burn. There is a woody flavor. Not bad worth a try

The aroma is wine barrel, cereal grain. The appearance is clear deep amber red. The flavor is bubblegum, perfume, wine. The finish is perfume, flowers, red wine. Medium to medium/thick in body. Nice.

Not as impressive as I was hoping, but still good. Dogfish never disappoints. Sweet rate at first...lingers lightly there after. The oak is apparent but the point noir taste is a little harder to find. Overall, a good brew ....not an all nighter though.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It has a deep and hazy orange amber colored body with little bits of yeast floating around in it. There is an off white head on top which fades quickly making some slick lacing at the top of the glass before it goes. The aroma is strong, fruity, estery and yeasty. I get notes of white grapes, hints of oak, wine like alcohol and hints of something medicinal/phenolic. This has a big body for a Witt and tons of interesting complexity. It has a sweet alcoholic warmth from start to finish which slows down drinkability and reminds you that this is a big beer. Up front I get the fruity notes, the yeast, the spice and some oak. Notes of white grape and citrus orange peel stand out with lighter notes of pineapple, sliced almond and sweet grain all moving in and out with each sip. The finish has some herbal hop notes and bitterness moving in but it remains somewhat sweet and boozy.

Spice, sour fruit, yeast. Pours cloudy honey gold with bright white foamy head that fades quickly leaving a fair amount of lacing. Medium bodied. Candy sweet juxtaposed with a fruit sourness. Citrus, spice, wine, oak. A nice dry red wine finish with a little warming in the throat.

Murky amber with reddish hues. Nose of Belgian yeast, orange, and red grape. Flavor is light red grape and yeast with some citrus orange and spice. Lingering yeast and grape. A bit hot and slightly muddied flavor. An imperial wit with grapes.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fizzy in appearance. Head large but shrinks fast. A mix of flavors without a sense of priority. Ok but confusing .Alcohol flavor is present.
