There's simply no end to the alterations that Dogfish Head brewers will place upon traditional styles. To push a Belgian witbier to double its normal strength would have been daring enough for most brewers. But oh-no, how about the induction of pinot noire grapes to amplify the winy character of Belgian ale and then aging the newfound concoction in pinot noire barrels. They've certainly "dogfished" this concoction completely up!

Its first cautious and curious sip comes after a murky orange and peach-stained pour. Layering in with a viscous nestle, the aromas and early taste is of candied fruit, perhaps more of orange and perfume than of grape or wine, all upon a lightly toasted and doughy base.

With the weighty beer pressing deeply into the palate, a notion of orange marmalade wafts over the tongue, carrying with it the orange peels, piths and pulp; along with a lemony, apricot, apple and unmistakable grape tone. Somewhat vegetal with verbena, chive and fresh-cut grass, its bracing acidity ushers in a quick finish.

With the simple syrup sweetness lifting, its pinot character thrives in the late palate, highlighted by vinous alcohol with its own peppery warmth. But closing with a semi-sweet weight, the ale remains much more of a sipping beer than a drinkable one. Mild bitterness and rosy spice gives this high gravity wheat beer a hearty prickle on the tongue as it exits.

Very interesting beer with a lot of great fruit flavors. The appearance was a nice reddish orange hue with a thick head head that dissipated rather quickly, The smell had a lot of blackberry and grape flavor from the pinot noir. Very subtle. The taste was full of fruit in a good way with a lot of the wine flavor coming through in the finish giving a semi-sweet lingering to it. Thought it was a nice after dinner beer, good with rich deserts.
