I've had this on tap many times at the DFH alehouse in Gaithersburg.
The color is a slightly murky, dull orange with a little red. Not spectacular but a rather pleasing color that seems very appropriate for the taste. There was a small, fairly white head when my snifter was brought to me, but it disappeared quickly.
There were no real strong smells in this beer. On first whiff, oranges and a restrained spiciness. As the drink got warmer the spices become louder.
The taste starts off like a regular witbier, orange and spicy, but as it fades in the middle, a fruity (more oranges, peaches) red wine-like character comes through, which is then prominent in the finish. There is not a big bite at the end as I've had with some regular witbiers; you get a complex array of subtle tastes instead, with a hint of oak at the end.
The mouthfeel is slightly heavier than perhaps first expected, but it's certainly not too much. Some carbonation in the beginning but fairly smooth overall.
This is one of DFH's lighter specialty brews; I had two last night and felt like I could have had another.
This is not really a witbier, it is another one of DFH's delightful brews that can't be put into a single category. An excellent beer well worth the price.

Deep orange, bronze color and mostly opaque. Two fingers of rich, creamy head on the pour never lets up. Provides a dense coating of lace with each sip.
Fresh orange, coriander and mild yeast aroma. Hint of white wine.
Dense, wheat-like malt character. Hints of corn. White grapes. Mild yeast notes suggesting cloves. Subtle herbal hop, provides a delicate spicy layer. Fairly well balanced. A little funky in the finish.
Full bodied. Yeasty, grainy texture. Slick feel and sticky on the lips. Descent carbonation.
Not bad. I think this is only the second double wit I've ever tried. I enjoyed the white wine addition. Nice complexity.
