Bottle. The pour was a clear peachy orange with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that receded slowly down to a large puddle and collar, and possessed some excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was mildly sweet with a grain malt and a moldy Belgian yeast and had notes of citrus (orange), a mild hint of red wine, dark fruit (grapes & plums), oak cask, and a bit of coriander.
The taste started off mildly sweet with a hint of dark fruit and a mild wine presence, and then became moderately yeasty with a light spicy citrus note and a slight alcohol presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a nice spicy wine flavor left behind.
Mouthfeel was a hair above light in body with a mildly dry texture and a soft carbonation.
Overall an impressive tasting brew, unlike anything I have tasted up to this point. The mild "Pinot Noir Cask" flavor blended remarkably well with the Belgian yeast, thus hiding the high ABV and making it a most enjoyable drinking experience...

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.

Encore une autre bière assez funky de cette audacieuse brasserie. La Red And White présente de très forts arômes de vieux vin, de bois et de miel. Le nez est fort complexe et sollicite tant les voies nasales que les souvenirs gastronomiques de toutes sortes. Je rêve tantôt à un dessert de poires au vin rouge, tantôt à un vin de Muscat. En bouche, le liquide est très sucré mais mes papilles avaient été heureusement bien prévenues. Très soyeuse, cette bière est peu effervescente et lourdement vineuse. Ma langue se fatigue vite. Bière à consommer à plusieurs.

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.

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