COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Wasn’t really a mix of flavors that I liked nor did they become better when mixed. It is still a good evening thirst quencher in the summer.

daknole (10847) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 15, 2009
On tap at Brother Tuckers. Pours a cloudy orangish color with small whtie head. Aroma is very sweet with a lot of caramel, orange peel, and some yeast. Flavor has a strong alcohol component, but not in a bad way so much. I get caramel, fruit, syrup and some slight wine notes...but not a whole lot. Yeast and spices are present as well. good beer. but I couldnt drink a lot of this one.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2006
UPDATED: APR 16, 2007 Growler... Murky, yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Fruity, woodsy nose with notes of citrus, bread and boiled grain. Tart ’n’ tangy flavor. Good balance. The high ABV is very well hidden, but gently makes itself known on the palate (completely hiding 12% is about as possible as hiding an elephant behind a sumac tree). Full-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Tangy, dry finish. A shout goes out to kmweaver and Mike at DFH for sharing!
