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.

amber pour with a quickly diminishing head...nose is of sweet grapes, and citrus...flavor is on the sweet side with not much in the way of hop balance

Interesting beer to say the least. Very, very malty. Taste of orange and corriander also. Alcohol is readily tasted. Pours out a copper color and has ample white sediment. As I already said, very interesting, but overally much to malty of a flavor for me to enjoy past the first few sips.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Good carbonation for such high ABV. VALUE - Reasonable. OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - Pleasant, well-balanced. Quaffable.

No haed to speak of. Body was a hazy orange color and very cloudy. Flavor had lots of orange, coriander & sweetness to it. A nice white beer (astringent) flavor kept you going for more. I tried this at room temp, but cold may have brought out more of the flavors. Very good and tasty

On tap at Capital Ale House Downtown. I really liked this one. When it was still cold in the glass, the flavor was extremely complex; started off with a bit of alcohol, morphing into a strong white grape flavor, and finish off with a long aftertaste of oranges and sour apples. The only negative thing I can say is that as the beer warms up, it starts to resemble a decent red wine rather than the delicious witbier it is when cold. Still, another extraordinary offering from Dogfish Head.

750 ml. Medium brown color with small head that is uncharacteristic for the style. This beer is definitely on the sweet side but extremely tasty with delicate hints of oak and pinot noir.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2009 Bottle. Pours to a beautifully cloudy orange with a one finger white head that is slow to dissipate. Nose is fruity, yeast and clove. The head laces the glass from when I slightly tipped it for a sniff, and stays seemingly permanent. I was expecting a huge taste out of this one, given its 10% ABV, but it masks its alcohol very well with lighter flavors - while still retaining warmth. Though it isnt as "in your face" as Id have expected, its still fantastically complex. The first thing youll notice is the thickness of this brew which makes for a very smooth drink. Its slightly tangy, with nice fruit notes and the lasting taste that only a Wit can achieve. This brew is well worth the price of admission ($12 for a pint and 9 ounces) and worth revisiting. Another great Dogfish Head product.

750ml bottle, no dates. Pours a clear orange with a decent off-white head. Aroma is lots of orange and orange peel, toffee, fruity (pear mostly), some spiciness. Taste is belgian yeast, caramelly malt, fruity, slight earthy hops, herbal, a little warming alcohol. Medium carbonation. Smooth and slightly sticky mouthfeel.

Very tasty. Strong flavors of citrus and Belgian yeast. Im not sure about the boldness of a pinot noir, but its a little peppery.

Pours a nice reddish-orange with a small bubbly head. Strong aroma of Coriander with a hint of orange. Tastes better than the aroma leads you to believe. Wine is faint but nice.
