2012 750ml bottle Would like to have tried this fresh. Pours a hazy orange with an off white head. A bit of orange and sweet malt almost vanilla taste. generallee08 (772) - New York, USA - JUL 5, 2014
It has a deep and hazy orange amber colored body with little bits of yeast floating around in it. There is an off white head on top which fades quickly making some slick lacing at the top of the glass before it goes. The aroma is strong, fruity, estery and yeasty. I get notes of white grapes, hints of oak, wine like alcohol and hints of something medicinal/phenolic. This has a big body for a Witt and tons of interesting complexity. It has a sweet alcoholic warmth from start to finish which slows down drinkability and reminds you that this is a big beer. Up front I get the fruity notes, the yeast, the spice and some oak. Notes of white grape and citrus orange peel stand out with lighter notes of pineapple, sliced almond and sweet grain all moving in and out with each sip. The finish has some herbal hop notes and bitterness moving in but it remains somewhat sweet and boozy.

Spice, sour fruit, yeast. Pours cloudy honey gold with bright white foamy head that fades quickly leaving a fair amount of lacing. Medium bodied. Candy sweet juxtaposed with a fruit sourness. Citrus, spice, wine, oak. A nice dry red wine finish with a little warming in the throat. Stuu666 (13094) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden, sweet toffee, dry winey taste, grapes, bitter. CelticJohnny (73) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2014
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!

Nose is vinous with notes of corinander and hints of orange. A beautiful hazy apricot hued pour with a thin lasting white head and thick lacing. The taste is delightful and complex. Vinous, orange, citrus, and some sweetness preceded a dry finish. A nice junction of beer and wine. Medium-light body and champaign like carbonation. Overall, this is a winner! I like the wine character. This and Sixty-one are among my favorite Dogfish Head offerings. Will drink again. BLADT (700) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Tap pour. This is a damn fine looking beer. A deep orange-copper color. Solid head. Aroma is whit spices (coriander, mild clove), grapes and a vague booziness. Reserved. Taste runs hot. Bubblegum sweetness off set by the aforementioned spices and a mild raspberry tartness. Lots of Belgium yeast and some wood notes too. A real sipper.

On tap at Abbot’s Cellar during a beer dinner with Sam. This was an aged 2007 vintage. Sublime and complex at the same time. Citrus and deep vanilla and grain marry. HellesBunny666 (243) - Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Very sweet, fruity, milky like aromas. Really delicious. Orange, juicy, grape flavors, coriander. Emeister84 (2478) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Strong oak characteristics on the nose, followed by banana-like and clove-like esters, some cream/dairy notes. Hazy orange, white head somewhat lasting. Dry, sticky, spicy, some subtle wine notes. Medium bodied.
