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.

This is a delicious beer with just enough sweetness. One of my faves from Dogfish Heads limited editions.

Bottle. This is a really interesting brew with strong vinious qualities. Worth trying.

Had at Easy Tiger. Pours nice dark gold with little. Taste is sweet, but not overpowering. Very nice

Poured into a trapist glass a orange with red tint pour with white head. Smell of wheat and fruite. A hint of grape. The more and more I drank it the more I liked it. Does not feel like a 10% ALE.

GTAEgeek (1202) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Sample at the Decatur Beer Fest. Pours a clear copper color, with a small, off-white head. The aroma is very vinous (notes of moscato and zinfandel, perhaps?), with a backbone of white bread. The flavor is very sweet. Light to medium body, sharp, crisp, and lightly acidic, with a good, clean finish. Overall, this is a lovely, fruity, and easy-drinking beer.

Slubgob (183) - West Hartford, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle into tulip glass. Red-orange color, kind of a tarnished brass. Very wine-like nose, reminiscent of a sour. In the mouth, there’s a bit of high alcohol sweetness (not unusual for Dogfish, I find) but not too out of whack. The grape juice comes through as, well, grape or dry red wine flavor. Finishes slightly sweet and sticky..

I loved this beer, very very smooth with a full mouth feel. A little bit like a red wine but with a nice hop undertone, delicious

750ml. Bottle. Pours clear orange with a two finger white head that thins slowly leaving nice lacing. Aroma is coriander, orange, fruit, spices and basement aromas. Medium body, lightly sweet, orange peel, spice, yeast, average carbonation, creamy texture. Ending with a yeasty sweet orange finish. Quite nice and balanced.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle, courtesy of Kermis. Pours a hazy orange color with a small, quickly disappearing white head on top. Aroma is very vineous, yeasty, barrel characters, slight booze in there as well. Flavour is medium sweet, alcoholic and very big on the wine characters. I’m betting this would go well with wine snobs as well. Medium long, sweet sour finish. Quite nice for sure.

jmgreenuk (4258) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Kermis. Poured a hazy rich amber with a thin white head. The aroma is dry yeasty with acid citrus. The flavour is weak sweet with a fruity yeast slightly acid sour palate and a weak citrus finish. Nice to taste of course but Dogfish Head have produced much better beers than this.
