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.

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. Its 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 Ive ever had. Tastes like cough syrup (cherry). Maybe this bar gave me the wrong beer. Dont know why everyone else likes this.

Encore une autre bire assez funky de cette audacieuse brasserie. La Red And White prsente de trs forts armes 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 rve tantt un dessert de poires au vin rouge, tantt un vin de Muscat. En bouche, le liquide est trs sucr mais mes papilles avaient t heureusement bien prvenues. Trs soyeuse, cette bire est peu effervescente et lourdement vineuse. Ma langue se fatigue vite. Bire consommer 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Honestly this didn't leave much of an impression on me. Wasn't bad, just not memorable at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
