look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

nice brown/copper/medium brown color. Pours with about two inches of off white/beige colored head.

smells spicy. Citrus is definitely the dominant scent here. Grassy/earthy notes.

Tastes sour. Bit of spicy flavor from the coriander. No oaky/woody taste that I would expect from the pinot barrels, although the wine flavors are definitely present. Also explains the sourness, which tends to linger for some time in the mouth.

beer has good carbonation. good body and texture too.

Overall, its a pretty interesting beer, but I'm nowhere near thrilled with it. It has some complex flavors and is pretty enjoyable to drink but the sourness from the beer is not what I like in a beer. I prefer the hoppy bitterness or sourness, which doesn't linger. Its a good one to try, but I wouldn't recommend it.

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.
