1 pt 9.6 fl oz bottle.
A - Clear amber orange, with a billowy two finger head (may have gotten a little aggressive at the end of the pour). Will go smoother on the second glass pour....(Ok, went smoother on the second pour, still got the billowiness.). The head settles into a decent lace.
S - Smells of faint citrus, biscuit malt, clove spice and banana
T - The first hit is sweet. You can pick out the pinot noir notes, the coriander spice, and the pale wheat-ness with some candied sugars. The alcohol is strangely not present, or more likely, well disguised in the mix.
M - Mouthfeel is good, sharp on the back of the tongue. The finish is dry and thin, with some sweetness left on the top and back of the tongue. It is carbonated in line with the style, but it is slightly on the low end.
O - Another interesting offering from Dogfish. The spices and wine notes are present, but neither are overpowering. 10% and well masked makes this is a great appetizer beer (cheese worked well with this) split with a friend.

From 750mL bottle to Bruges hybrid glass on 4/9/12
-- Vintage 2010 --
A: Pinkish-red in hue. A good pour yields a white .25 finger head that lingers, and leaves plenty of lacing rimming the glass.
S: Freshly crushed Gewürztraminer. White Alsacian fruit and honey dominate the nose in a major way.
T: Very sweet. Some saccharin-like bite hits the fore to mid. It does drink like a carbonated glass of off-dry rosé. There's a decent amount of malt and a lies-like yeastiness to it too. It's a bit hot, and whatever hops were here are long gone.
M: Bubbly like a nice Champagne. Maybe not quite as lively, but close.
O: This has aged well. I'm not one for sweeter beers, but this ain't half bad. I expected a train wreck and was happily surprised when this stayed on track. The wine-like qualities are right in your face and a bit much, but overall it's above average.
