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.

Quite a strong and robust wit. I like the base brew, but am not sure if the Pinot infusion adds anything. Probably would benefit from ratcheting down the ABV a point or two as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mostly plasticized. T: nicely subdued wit flavors and the Pinot nuances come thru well. M: thin. Low carb. O: tasty, not worth aging twice. Serving type: bottle 05-28-2011

750 mL bottle. Part of a tasting 11/24/2013 at Fraser’s Pub in Ann Arbor. Darker gold pour with minimal filmy head , and essentially no lace. There’s an immediate dominating aroma of coriander in the nose. There is also a nice zest that comes along with it. I believe it’s orange zest. There is a little hint of sour in the tail end of the nose as well. The flavor holds a little bit of spiciness to it. There is a very yeasty taste, pretty common to the Belgian style. The mouth feel is somewhat thin, and the flavors don’t linger much at all

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