Pours clear golden orange with a decent white foam head.

Boozy oaky vanilla woody notes in the nose.

Bigger beer up front, which is a distraction from the wittier focus. Booze, wine like (oaken vanilla chardonnay) elements, with some spice and yeast. Far from the traditional wit. Finishes complex, malty, boozy, and a bit spicy. A heavier richer beer for a wit.

Medium bodied, but has some body.

Overall not bad, but more complex than needed for the style. I think the serving size would work better at 12 oz than the bomber. I liked this, but it is one of those brews that drinks a bit more like a cordial than a beer.

750ml bottle served in a snifter glass.

pours a bright copper/deep orange tone with an off-white head, maybe a finger and a half of which; decent retention, spotty lacing. beautiful looking beer.

the nose is marked by a sweet maltiness, coriander, and pinot. alcohol presence, but a moderate one. flavor profile mostly breaks down around the nose but with some added cherry and orange notes, some tartness to it. alcohol is a player but not overwhelming at all. ii'm not head over heels but it's pretty good; unique.

medium-plus bodied, medium carbonation... drinkability is ok: goes down easy enough but in my opinion its uniqueness wears on you - not something you'd want a lot of in a sitting. that said, i'd welcome a revist as some future point. worth a try.

750ml capped bottle. Bottled In 2012. Served in a tulip.

Pours a mostly clear dark gold, some chill haze. Forms 2 fingers of white foam. Tight bubbles settle to a creamy ring. A moderate amount of lacing is left in the glass.

Aroma is fruity, citrus with some peach notes. Vanilla. Peppery spice. Alcohol.

Flavor resembles the nose with fruity and vanilla notes up front with a slightly tart Belgian middle and a slightly sour dry finish. Vinous pinot noir notes add to the fruitiness. Alcohol is present in the flavor throughout, but it never overpowers. Long lingering spicy finish.

Medium bodied with medium-high semi-sharp carbonation. Full flavor and ABV make it a sipper, but dry finish makes you want more.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 2011. Pours cloudy reddish orange color with a nice 2 finger off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Some decent lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big lemon, orange peel, herbal, grape, red wine, grass, wheat, bread, clove, pepper, and yeast spices. Nice and well balanced aromas with good strength. Taste of orange, grape, lemon, pepper, clove, red wine, herbal, grass, earth, bread, oak, and yeast spices. Slight tannin tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of grape, red wine, citrus peel, herbal, pepper, oak, and yeast spices on the finish for a while. Nice balance of flavors with good complexity and no cloying sweetness. Medium carbonation and full bodied; with a slick and fairly creamy mouthfeel that is quite nice. Definitely a sipping beer, with well hidden alcohol; only a slight warming after the finish noticed. Overall this is a really nice imperial wit with red wine qualities. Nice complexity and balance; and very smooth to sip on for beer of this gravity. Very enjoyable stuff.
