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.

Tap pour. This is a damn fine looking beer. A deep orange-copper color. Solid head. Aroma is whit spices (coriander, mild clove), grapes and a vague booziness. Reserved. Taste runs hot. Bubblegum sweetness off set by the aforementioned spices and a mild raspberry tartness. Lots of Belgium yeast and some wood notes too. A real sipper.

Zymurgeist2 (1080) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 5, 2014
On tap at Abbot’s Cellar during a beer dinner with Sam. This was an aged 2007 vintage. Sublime and complex at the same time. Citrus and deep vanilla and grain marry.

Emeister84 (1084) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Strong oak characteristics on the nose, followed by banana-like and clove-like esters, some cream/dairy notes. Hazy orange, white head somewhat lasting. Dry, sticky, spicy, some subtle wine notes. Medium bodied.

DSG (6242) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle sample at a wood-aged beers tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Cloudy orange. Aroma of fruitiness, spices, grains, caramel, wood and alcohol. Sweet flavor, spicy, woody, fruity, alcoholic, with a tart vinous note and a drier, spicier and more alcoholic finish. Medium-bodied, slightly sticky. Not my thing.

Lemke10 (811) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2014
This pours a cloudy amber color with a fluffy white head. The aroma is mild with coriander and hints of fermented grapes. The taste is quite smooth and fruity with the nicely blended combination of wine and coriander that delivers a rather interesting taste. Add this to your list of must tries.

trapped (870) - New York City, TURKEY - MAY 28, 2014
Drought. Slightly hazy orangish-yellow with off-white creamy head, orange peel-spicy aroma, low carbonation, high density body, yeasty taste, longish finish with coriander aftertaste. Interesting brew.

TXBadger (1488) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Pours a very nice amber color with off-white head. Pinot noir on the nose, with some raw wheat and oak; follows onto the palate. Finishes semi-sweet with a little floral note to it. Very good, very complex.

monk191 (1049) - California, USA - MAY 24, 2014
A nice wine grape infused beer. Pours a bright orange-red clear color with little head. Smells of wine and peaches. Tastes of pre-fermented grape juice and more peaches and figs. Paired with blue cheese bison burgers, brings out a grapefruit flavor, as well as more of the wine and a lot of sweetness. Great pairing. Had in the bottle.
