This is a good beer. The moscato grapes it's brewed with add a nice flavor that's reminiscent of wine (as it should be), but it still tastes more like a beer. It's a solid effort from a great brewery.

750 mL bottle.

Deep orange/light red color and slightly hazy with a small white head. I definitely get a decent amount of orange citrus in the aroma, followed by grape. There's complexity that's hard to put my finger on, but it can likely be attributed to the oak tanks.

Flavor brings fruit initially and then hits you with a bit of spice at the end. It gives the impression of sweetness at first due to its fruitiness but actually finishes pretty dry. Medium bodied and goes down very easy. 10% ABV? I would have guessed closer to 7%.

A unique and well done offering from Dogfish Head. One of my wife's favorite beers, who is a lover of Pinot Noir and a fan of Belgian witbier as well. A bottle or two of this always ends up in our fridge throughout the year.

750 ml bottle. Pours orange with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacin. Aroma is of yeast, wheat malt, spices and citrus fruit. Body is full and smooth. Wheat malt, yeast, ripe fruit, alcohol and spices fill the mouth. Finish is long and spicy. Excellent brew.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip

L: Pours a cloudy dark golden copper color. Thick foamy off-white head with great lacing.

S: Red wine and oak... yeast and alcohol. Grapes and fruit.

T/F: Very fruity.... and a nice mixture of yeast and red wine barrel character. Grape must and oak... a bit herbal and mild sweetness. Alcoholic and warming... well carbonated. Finish is sticky and

O: A very tasty beer that somewhat defies characterization. Doesn't taste anything like a witbier. Lots of wine and barrel character... boozy... and definitely worth the price of admission.
