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.

Bottled in Jan 2012. Nose is spicy coriander, bubble gum, rose, tangerine, Orange, pepper with warming alcohol. First sips lead to alcohol notes, followed by oat, wheat and spicy coriander. Orange sits in the finish balancing the whole act. Medium full mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Warming. Winner, drink fresh even with heat from abv.

Surprised I never rated this ... I do have some older bottles in the cellar. On tap at TJs. Poured a deep amber to copper color with a smaller sized head. Fruits, spices, some wine notes,and vanilla.

Bottle in 2011, Pours copper color with small sized head. Notes of booze, sugar booze, welshes grape juice, oak, coriander and malt. Really unbalanced with way too much heat and sweetness from the excessive malting they did. Why won’t they make any clean hoppy beers?

750 ml bottle found in the cellar and I don’t know how old it is. Pours a slightly hazy reddish amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have big vinous notes, grapes, a hint of orange peel, pale wheat malts, some sweetness, red wine character, floral, some oxidation notes, I guess it could have been much worse.

Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of fruit, and some other hints, maybe some spices, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and a hint of hops with a nice bittersweet finish. Like an Imperial Witbier.

bomber to tasting glasses poured a cloudy reddish color minimal white head. this is an old bottle so it may not truly be cloudy. wonderful nose of orange and grape with hints of coriander. the flavor held true on this one surprisingly for as old as this bottle was guessing 4-5 yrs old maybe more. but you definitely get the wit flavor the wheat the orange peel and wine. aged nicely and very good tasting.

Not too bad. I was expecting something more musty or yeasty. Can taste the slight oakiness from wine barrels. I'd have this one again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
