very dark red pour into a snifter. The aroma is sour cherry and grape juice. I didn’t realize that the syrupy molasses flavors could work with a wit beer and fruit. I didn’t notice the coriander until I burped... I call those "ghost flavors." I love a perfectly crafted sour flav in a fruity beer. DFH rarely dissapoints me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep orangey red color that is reminiscent of a tawny port. The head is strongly pink and has good retention. The aroma is complex, filled with coriander, cherries, orange peel, and belgian yeast. The flavor is absolutely delicious. Notes of sweet cherries, strong coriander, citrus, and a vinuous dry character. The thing that really seals the deel is the mouthfeel. Almost creamy, with no sign of the 10% alcohol. I would literally drink this all day if I could. Fabulous.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2007 750 ml. bottle. Interesting beer. Poured a nice color red. Slight pink head. Flavor was a classic Witbier with just a touch of Pinot, not overbearing, but you notice it there in the background. The alcohol is almost impossible to detect. Easy to drink and a nice twist / change for a Wit. Putting one in the cellar for a future tasting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma present small phenols over aged wheat, possibly in some sense of a fruit. Pours a fiery bold read, with just off-white head. Flavor comes in an overbearing phenolic, salty rather plastic presentation. Sticky over-alcoholed esters and yeast muddle an other-wise decent beer. DFH residuals make this beer a failure. Pretty gross.

Taste was not specifically overwhelming. Very fruity taste to it, but it was not a tart, or sweet fruity taste. I really was not impressed at all, the corrainder flavor was barely palpable.
