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.

I got this on tap at the Gaithersburg Alehouse. It was served in a snifter and had a brilliant red body with a perfectly white head. The smell was less powerful than I would have liked, but still a very good fruity aroma. There is a hint of the alcohol in the aroma and some in the taste as well, but that is somewhat to be expected in a 10% ABV beer. The flavor is an excellent blend of a wit and pinot noir. There is a light fruity belgian funk in there and then the smoothness of a wine blends it together. It is very light bodied and very drinkable.

Smell is nice and floral. Also, you get a bright belgian yeast. Taste of bitter citrus, coriander, and grape skin with a nice citrus finish. Nice copper color. Grab it if you can find it. Another good example of what Sam and the boys are doing at DFH brewing co. Cheers!

garretjax (103) - Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Deep red rose color, heavy sediment with a quickly fading pinkish white head. First scent is the grape/wine then demure citrus tones. Light body and light carbonation. Blood orange flavor and a velvety feel of more. As it warms the complexities of the pinot become more evident. Big semi sweet finish thats hangs thick in the end. Very interesting style.

HomerBeerOdysy (103) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2014
APPEARANCE - Cloudy orange with a 3-finger head that dissipates. A little lacing. AROMA/SCENT - Sweet, piney, herbaceous. TASTE - Not too hoppy, not too sweet. ABV somewhat hidden. 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.
