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.

750ml bomber split with my wife, served into standard pint glass a: Tanish/amber color with hazy from yeast. Slightly dark for a "White" beer. Silky 1/2" head with good renetion, reduces to a lace ring around the glass s: yeast, corriander and orange peel dominate the nose. Also notes of alchohol t: malt sweetness dominates with notes of Orange peel, corriander, and yeast. Very nice. Alchohol is warming m&d: full mouth feel, has a chewy nature to it. The ABV is like a freight train. I have drunk strong beers in my day and this one takes the cake. I hate to sound like a puss.... but I don;t know if I could have finished the bomber myself.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Reddish brown pour with a thin head. Aromas of grape, apricot, vanilla, orange, coriander and malt. Flavors become more pronounced as it warms up. Great smooth finish.

It's really good beer. I am not sure how it is classified as a strong beer being a mix between a wine and a wit. Smells of fusel alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bitter and sweet all at the same time. Not my palate, but I give them credit for making this.

Honestly this didn't leave much of an impression on me. Wasn't bad, just not memorable at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

1pt 9.6fl oz bottle poured into a Westmalle Trappist glass. Pale cloudy orange with thick offwhite froth. Aroma is Belgian sugar and grapes. Smelling it alone gives me the sour mouthwatering effect. The flavor is a Belgian ale with strong undercurrents of wine. The flavors blend together in a way that just works. Palate is very smooth, slightly effervescent. Short bittersweet finish. Wow, bravo Sam & co. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber - Rosey peach colored pour with white head. Nose is heavy on yeast, grapes, and light fruit. Pretty heavy on the sediment for an initial pour from a bottle chilled upright. Taste is almost like an Abbey Dubble with some grape juice. Light on the palate. Well done for something I didn’t have high hopes for.

ansalon (1711) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2014
Bottle at Akkurat, shared by friends. Pours a semi clear light amber with a rather viscous, oily appearance. Aroma is quite vinous with caramel, honey, ripe tropical fruit, orange and oak. Taste is caramel, honey, ripe tropical fruit, orange marmalade, roasted barrel notes and sweet white wine. Mouthfeel is very smooth and somewhat oily with almost no carbonation. Excellent!!
