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.

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.

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.

Draft at bambinos. Pours light amber with a spicy orange aroma. Flavor is a lot of Belgian yeast, spice, and fruit. A sweeter finish. The wine flavor is definitely there as well. I enjoyed this. Solid.

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

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.

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.
