Pours a hazy orange with white head. Smells orangey upfront following with coriander and vinous notes. Tastes like the typical wit wheat than vinous, oak, sweet, and vanilla. Medium, velvety palate. This was a tasty treat!

From 25.6 fl oz bottle. I did not enjoy this as much as I expected to. Beautiful color, but little head. Alcohol is noticeable in aroma, and at first taste, but quickly goes away. Thin mouth-feel. I think I need to try this again at the brewery to get a real feel for it.

Complex aroma of hops abduction liquor. Golden brown appearance. Full on the palate. Taste of herbs, White Ale, and red wine. Definitely worth trying. Great beer

I love DFH and Belgians but this just wasn’t my thing. Too carbonated and the pinot is forced. See Allagash Victor for how to do this right.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2008 Tart almost taniny flavor followed by sour yeasty flavor of a belgian. Nice crisp texture small head and reddish color. Leaves a slightly bubbly sensation on the tongue and its gone... There is a alot to this beer. Very sophisticated, but a little bit dry for me.

750 ml. bottle. Pours a clear, amber, red - very similar to a rose wine. Aroma of orange juice, wheat, and a little spice. Flavors of orange peel, coriander and sweet malt. There’s also a mild, underlying bitterness. The finish is dry and a little bitter. Interesting and different.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle. Bought in the Spring 11’ at Nugget. Appearance: Pours semi-hazy light auburn color. An initial frothy white head, that dissipates to excellent lacing. Aroma: Sweet cherries, grapes, peaches, pear, slight alcohol, oranges, lemons, Pinot Noir is there. Taste: A malty sweetness. Cherries, citrus fruits in aroma, honey, vanilla, light caramel, good amount of oak, a hint of booze, some sourness and leaves a nice tang on the finish. Palate: Med bodied. Very smooth and drinkable. Heavy carbonation that is equally pleasant. Tart on the finish, but doesn’t take away from the flavor, only adds more complexity. Overall: A really delicious beer! It’s what I expected from DFH and even a little more. Would for sure buy and drink again. Try this if you have the chance. Would have let it age longer, but I had it in my beer fridge since I could only buy it chilled. --(32nd Rating)--

Multiple fruity tastes through from beggining to end, it seemed like the second glass was more fruity?! Almost as if it had seperated a bit , or maybe the alcohol was kicking in haha. I had to finish the last glass a little faster than I wanted and it was a bit harsh, I suggest drinking only if you have time to sip. I might not buy this again because it was a bit expensive (12.99), but it was an awesome one time gift for a spring afternoon.

beautiful oxblood red with a lingering white head. strong citrus on the nose, with a complex bitter orange and dark fruit taste. Cedar stands out and the balance is great.
