UPDATED: OCT 5, 2007 750 ml. bottle. Interesting beer. Poured a nice color red. Slight pink head. Flavor was a classic Witbier with just a touch of Pinot, not overbearing, but you notice it there in the background. The alcohol is almost impossible to detect. Easy to drink and a nice twist / change for a Wit. Putting one in the cellar for a future tasting. auerbrau (3206) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Aroma present small phenols over aged wheat, possibly in some sense of a fruit. Pours a fiery bold read, with just off-white head. Flavor comes in an overbearing phenolic, salty rather plastic presentation. Sticky over-alcoholed esters and yeast muddle an other-wise decent beer. DFH residuals make this beer a failure. Pretty gross. taffurs888 (124) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Taste was not specifically overwhelming. Very fruity taste to it, but it was not a tart, or sweet fruity taste. I really was not impressed at all, the corrainder flavor was barely palpable. Padron4KM (811) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAR 31, 2007
750 ml bottle. Bottled on 2/9/07. Poured
The color is interesting. Hazy yellow on the edges and light red toward the middle. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 31, 2007
The head is two fingers thick, fluffy and long lasting. Patches of lace are left as it recedes.
Aroma is bready, citrusy, vanilla, with some cherries and spice.
Flavor is citrusy and wheaty, light cherry, maybe some raspberry.
Body is creamy, full, and lush.
Finish is long with citrus and spice.
I spent over an hour and a half with this bottle and I enjoyed it thoroughly
A hard beer to rate. First, it pours a pinkish orange and wears a nice little head for that strenght. The flavor profile is highly juicy. I can’t say the Pinot Noir struck me as particularly genuine, certainly not feeling very supple and stripped from its tannins within all that wheat. Its characteristic cherry note comes across as very sweet. The spiciness and juiciness on the other hand pair well. The result is an extremely experimental ale, which I guess is the objective and certainly interesting to try, but it seems that the juiciness could not come without the invasive sweetness that would feel much friendlier with sharper tannins. Alcohol remains well concealed through and through though and putting a score up remains a hard task.
