3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2011 Brilliant, orange-red color with a thin, bone colored head and fat CO2 bubbles rising underneath. Aroma is predominantly red fruit at first with sweetness and a spicy, clove-like wit bier yeastiness asserting itself more as it warms. The entire aroma is enveloped by a soft, orange blanket that is as comforting and warm as a nap at Grandma’s house during Christmas. Some sweetness, dried apricot, a big and spicy but complementary alcohol, wood tannins barely show themselves but come underneath to show some nice underpalate astringency and balance the sweetness from the mid palate into the finish. But where is the wit yeast in the flavor.

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.

So so strong. Cereal nose with some orange fruit. Bitter and dry. Lots of orange oil mixed with yeasty dryness, and a really intense booze/tart finish. It’s good but a bit much for me.

From the 750 ml. bottle. Bottled on 04/17/14. So over a year of aging. Nice orange-amber pour under a fizzy off-white head. Aromas of yeast, toasted malts, light sugar, coriander, orange, and red grape. No booze to speak of. The body is medium to better than medium but decently smooth. The taste echoes the aroma with a toastiness that graduates into a mild to moderate bitterness at the finish. Quite nice.

This is the worst Dogfish head beer I’ve ever had. Tastes like cough syrup (cherry). Maybe this bar gave me the wrong beer. Don’t know why everyone else likes this.
