3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled July 9, 2013.
Appearance: The body is a clear amber with a dense light tan head on top. The head dissipates at an average pace, settling into a bubbly coating.
Aroma: The aroma is light with hints of wine and beer meshed together nicely. The wit portion adds a sweet orange, hints of straw and coriander with hints of semi-dry pinot noir, adding a mild fruitiness. I wish this were stronger as it smells nice.
Taste: This is very nicely balanced between the two styles. Slight banana flavors blend with spicy coriander and sweet orange while the wine portion matches it perfectly adding a semi-dry fruitiness with light oak and vanilla flavors. This is a perfect marriage of the two styles. The finish lingers of coriander and pinot noir with some tannins.
Palate: Soft full body.
Overall: This is a pretty darn good beer. I love how the wine and beer meet perfectly and compliment each other perfectly. This is complex and drinkable. This is an excellent bridge for wine and beer enthusiasts alike.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pour into tulip..golden honey like color..1 finger head drops off quickly..all types of particles in the mix when held up to light..nose is quite vinous in nature as expected.getting some apricot..mango..and the spices..the coriander..does the aromatics of the Pinot and traces of the oak as well.. Mouthfeel is just ok on this..interesting amped up combination of a wit married with the vinous notes..but getting the initial hit of vinegar and a bit of a let down in the expected complexity....abv is hidden fairly well..does provide slight warming lingering action with the medium bodied..positive being it is not overly spiced..not a big fan..

Pours almost orange w/ a thin white head that leaves a little lacing. The aroma is of sweet Belgian yeast. The taste is quite complex & delicious! Another fine effort from DFH.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aged 3 years: This was very good, I like that the belgian wit character dominates but the alterations are also present and blend well with the other characteristics. My friends stated that they thought the aging was very beneficial.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Polished copper and blood orange melt together under a creamy white head which lingers long and thick. A slow stream of bubbles maintains the fluff while lace arcs across the sides of my glass.
Musky and funky with peach and apricot skins, grape musk, strawberry puree, pear musk, and oaked chardonnay. Starts tannic with the skins then delves into juicy sweetness of the flesh within.
Soft frothy mouthfeel reminds me of biting into angel food cake, angel food cake soaked in delicious fruit juices. Definitely different. Oaked chardonnay meets musky funky champagne meets fresh fruits ripe for the eating and juicing. Caramel and honey edges. Stewed apricots, peaches, and pears in the middle – lightly spiced. Strawberry underneath.
Intriguing and best enjoyed with a touch more chill than I would normally employ when tasting a beer. Of the Red and White versus the Black and Blue, I have to say I enjoy the Red and White a tad more. Both are good in their own right, but if I had to pick a favorite…
