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 wasnít 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. Thereís also a mild, underlying bitterness. The finish is dry and a little bitter. Interesting and different.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle. Bought in the Spring 11í 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 doesnít take away from the flavor, only adds more complexity. Overall: A really delicious beer! Itís 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)--

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.

Had in a bottle. Pours a cloudy amber. Tastes of berries with nuts on the finish (lol). It does not smell good. It smells like a merlot almost. That said, itís an all around great beer with a complex palette that is fun to try and pick out.
