750 ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with slight hues of violet and a slightly pinkish small head. The aroma is of grapes and spice with a pleasant background of citrus. Taste is amazing with a wonderfull balance between malt, grapes, and spices. The finsh is dry and smooth with the alcohol being very well hidden. This is a great brew that is truly unique and very well balanced.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Description was very interesting, so I had to try this one. Pours out a very attractive light ruby/rose color with a fluffy light pinkish head. Aroma is of spice (coriander) and oak. Taste is complex and full bodied, but at the same time very drinkable. Yeast, light fruit, maybe some banana. Coriander with oak, grape and a wine-like earthy note. Finishes dry. Very solid beer, Iím impressed.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2007 Pours a mysterious pinkish red which seems to constantly morph between bright ruby and deep amber when the beer is still. Aroma is banana, bubblegum, spices, and oak. Flavor is beautifully dry, with berries exploding throughout, with an oaky sourness. The red wine really comes through. Finish is dry and slightly bitter. This is a great offering from Dogfish Head.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle. Pours a pretty, bright red with a rosy white head. Aroma is like a normal Belgian white, maybe a bit more flowery. Flavor is very interesting. Very carbonated, fruity, with a nice dry wheat taste. It really does taste the Red and White of the title and it makes a complex and tasty combo. Iím not a huge wine fan but I still appreciate this one.

Deep ruby and 3cm of frothy, pinkish white head. Nose of big time corriander and wheat with elements of citrus, yeast, and hints of acidic red wine and subtle oak. Mostly witbier aroma. Much more complexity in the flavor. Wheat and corriander are passively paramount, allowing strong supporting characters of oak and tannins, clearly pinot noir wine, orange rind, airy yeast, and a small dose of sugary sweetness. Medium/full body, balanced, creamy yet foamy. Good to see something new from DFH, and very good, also.

Very pretty light maroon red, with a thin white head that sticks to the side of the glass and covers it. Pretty fruity nose, definitely get that pinot noir wine smell. Alot of spices, cinnamon, and citrus in the taste all mixed together. You get alot of that red wine taste in the finish and the aftertaste. Alot of nutmeg and coriander as well. Pretty complex, alot going on. Iím digging the taste in this one. Iíve bee aniticipating a new dogfish beer and this one definitely didnt disappoint.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2008 On Tap-@ the Brewpub. Pours a dark ruby red wine color w/a light off white foamy head. Fruity spiced aroma. Classic Belgian flavor, full rich spiced flavor. Traces of dates, figs, raisins, orange/citrus, colander, red wine/grapes, & rock candy. Very complex multi level flavor. Forget what you know @ Belgian Whiteís; this isnít like any other Whitbier youíve ever had. Long long full finish, you donít taste the alcohol @ all but you feel it. Incredibly smooth. One of DFHís best, glad to see it slated to make annual apparances!!
Rerate-3/1/08 had this years version of this brew @ the brewpub & while it was enjoyable, it was no where near as good as last years. Much more one dementional & not nearly as flavorful. A disappointment
