4.18/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy blood-orange amber with lots of suspended particles. A white frothy head falls quickly to a thin ring. No lace. Not particularly appealing, but lighter than I expected.

Aroma is a good blend of belgian wit and a fruity pinot, overlaid with oak. The light fruity sweetness blends well with the woody character and slightly astringent wine notes. Wit spices are very subdued.

Taste follows aroma but so much for subdued spices... they come into their own, stealing the scene in the initial sip. But then the other flavors step up and blend it all together. The light fruitiness gives way to a gentle tartness and a bitterness that builds to a moderate strength in the finish.

Medium body with a nice smooth carbonation. The high alcohol limits my inclination to drink too much though.

A lot of what DFH does goes over my head, honestly. But this is an very well done combination that is a pleasure to drink. Belgian Wit? I try to rate to category, but this would miss the mark in ways that aren't fair to it. Perhaps DFH (and other highly experimental breweries) should have their own category.

3.9/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.
