You definitely get that strong scent that you get in a quality witbier the orange and corriander scent with an oats smell. I also get some grapes in the smell as well.

The taste really has a nice bite from the carbonation reminding you that yes this is still a beer and an herbal hop bite comes into play on the initial sip and aftertaste. I get the orange and corriander with a sherbert taste and creaminess. I also get the grape must taste mixing in with the orange flavors.

The taste is sweet and definitely knocks you back on your first sip. It definitely tastes like an Imperial witbier but with an extra juicyness not found in any witbier I've had. I also get a faint woody oak flavor in there as well. This is a unique beer that really took me for surprise with how much flavor can be packed into one beer. I'm not a huge witbier fan but this still was a big enough and unique enough of a beer to catch my attention to buy a growler fill.

poured a reddish copper color with a very large off white head that held exceptionally well and some nice sticky lace to the finish. aromas of strawberry and spice. very smooth and with the complex taste of the pinot noir and coriander and hint of citrus from the orange peel puts this beer over the top.mouthfeel medium carbonation just right. this beer has it all. i like dogfish head brewery i think they brew excellent beers.
