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.

Leighton (20629) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2011
Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours a cloudy, rich red with a slight, beige head. Sweet, fruity aroma, lightly vinous with hints of cherry and citrus. Very sweet flavor, lots of berry fruits, some mild yeast and woodiness. Full in body with fine to average carbonation. Rich, sweet, lightly tart finish with mild warming and further fruits. Quite good.

Theydon_Bois (18731) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2012
Tap at the Rehoboth Beach brew pub - 23/05/12. Murky dark orange with a thin white head. Big fruity nose, orange, cherry, berries and a little yeast, red wine notes. Tastes as nose, fairly full bodied slightly sticky and a little alcohol on the finish. Fairly well disguised alcohol flavours, well balanced.

Oakes (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2008
Nice accent to the amber - a little blush if you will. Aroma has some dry woody notes with cherryish overtones. Alcohol kicks things off, adding vinous and cherry nuances. Finishes with a real flat sort of woodiness and very late alcohol heat. Wish there was as much subtlety in the beer as there is in that colour.

mcberko (16622) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2011
750mL bottle, pours amber orange. Aroma of primarily 1) coriander, and 2) orange zest, wheat, yeast and red wine. Flavour is very complex: orange peel, coriander, and citrus - with secondary notes of sweet fruits, and subtle vinous and oak qualities. Most invigorating.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 14, 2010
A: The pour is an orange-amber color with a fairly fluffy off-white head on top. S: The nose features some coriander, which is one of the few things that might tell you that this is a witbier. Maybe a bit of citrus in there along with plenty of fruity sweetness. T: A bit of fruit and heavy on the sweetness without much of the base witbier coming through. Again, maybe just a hint of coriander and orange peel. M: The carbonation is maybe a bit on the heavy side with a fairly full body, especially for the style. D: Definitely a nice idea from DFH, but another one of their beers that did not quite hit the mark (for me, anyway). The 10% abv doesnt really do much for me either, but at least its fairly well hidden.

bhensonb (14893) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2008
750 ml bottle. Slightly vinous aroma with citrus peel, wheat and yeast. Dark amber color with a decent beige head. A touch of vanilla as the glass approaches the lips. Medium to full body with smooth creamy carbonation. Heat in the throat, vanilla, spice, citrus and wheat. As things move on theres a touch of banana(!), and oaky wood creeps in. Something of a taste treat.

Ferris (14387) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle - Orangepeel, coriander and a slight alcohol finish on the end. Golden with a long lasting creamy white head. Taste the yeast and alchohol which overwhelmes the beer, may mellow with age but now a little rich for my palate.
