Dogfish Head Red & White

dogfish_head_red_and_white

Yet another unique beer from the folks at Dogfish Head in Delaware    Red & White is a Belgian witbier with a twist, (surprising?) being brewed with coriander, orange peels, and pinot noir grapes, then aged in pinot noir and oak barrels.   This is a big beer, at 11% ABV.  The orange is predominant in the nose.  The middle is where the coriander comes through, with more orange, and then it transitions into the grapes and a heavy oak flavor in the finish.  The oak is a bit more overstated than I’d prefer, but this is a super interesting and very complex beer, and a nice treat.

I give it a 4.3 out of 5.
