Dogfish Head "Red & White"
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery - Milton, Delaware USA
Belgian-Style Witbier (ABV 10%) (IBU 35)

[Suggested Glassware: Snifter]

Rating: 3.8/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a clear peachy orange with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that receded slowly down to a large puddle and collar, and possessed some excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was mildly sweet with a grain malt and a moldy Belgian yeast and had notes of citrus (orange), a mild hint of red wine, dark fruit (grapes & plums), oak cask, and a bit of coriander.

The taste started off mildly sweet with a hint of dark fruit and a mild wine presence, and then became moderately yeasty with a light spicy citrus note and a slight alcohol presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a nice spicy wine flavor left behind.

Mouthfeel was a hair above light in body with a mildly dry texture and a soft carbonation.

Overall an impressive tasting brew, unlike anything I have tasted up to this point. The mild "Pinot Noir Cask" flavor blended remarkably well with the Belgian yeast, thus hiding the high ABV and making it a most enjoyable drinking experience...
