Brewed by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
“A big, Belgian-style witbier brewed with coriander and orange peel and fermented with pinot noir juice. After fermentation, a fraction of the batch is aged in one of our 10,000-gallon oak tanks.”
Serve at 45-50 Degrees
Enjoyed from a DFH Signature Glass
A: Pours a dark and hazy orange – darker than your average witbier.
S: Two fingers of orange-white foam with nice lacing.
T: Very complex brew. Starts off with grape/pinot sweetness and a some orange peel, the citrus flavors dominate in the middle before it finishes with warming alcohol and a hint of vanilla and oak.
M: Medium-bodied with a perfect amount of carbonation. Dry finish.
O: Maybe a little overkill considering the style, but sometimes more is indeed more. Witbiers aren’t my favorite style by any stretch of the imagination, but this is a nicely balanced offering. Worth a try.
