Received this beer a while back from Gibby out in Philly. It’s been quietly sitting in the beer fridge being passed up for the IPA’s and Surly seasonals. Drank from my Russian River tulip.

Bottled on 02/12/07

Appearance- Pours a crystal clear reddish purple with a nice half finger bright white head that is somewhat creamy and fleeting. A super small cap and somewhat thick collar remain along with a bit of random lacing.
Smell- Sort of tart and fruity with an initial whiff that really reminds me of cranberries. A hint of orange peel is noticeable as well along with what I’m assuming is the coriander (although I’d never pick it out). It somewhat spicy but the sharp grape tartness really dominates the nose.
Taste- Surprisingly the taste isn’t as tart and fruity as I was expecting. It’s actually sort of earthy and dark with more of an almost Belgium profile than anything. Dates and prunes with a touch of raisin for good measure. A few woody tones enter the picture and add a tiny nip of vanilla in the finish. A sort of pithy bite of orange is noticeable as the beer warms. The 10% is nowhere to be found though.
Mouthfeel- Medium to heavy body with a sort of lush creamy feel with a light zip of carbonation.
Drinkability- Definitely not what I was expecting, especially after the smell. It’s really earthy and sort of Belgiumy and yeasty. I’d really like to try a fresh bottle and see how it’s changed over the last 4 years. Thanks much Jeffy-Poo!

Wit beer? More like Belgian Strong. Poured a mostly cloudy burnt orange with darker yellow hue. A good pour leaving yeasty in the bottle leaves a soft white head with not much lacing or retention.

The nose is complex with sugary notes, Belgian yeasty characteristics and some fruity esters. To start the malt has sweet essence with a candi and bready backing. Some unique yeast qualities enhance the more bready quality. Some fruity nose with apricots, figs and raisins. The raisins really came out as it warmed. Some wine characteristics not feint. Not really any woody aromas as I was expecting.

The taste is just as complex. There is more of a bready quality then what the nose indicated. Some biscuit and wheat notes. The esters come out more fruity flavors. Apricots, fig and raisins continue but more noticeable wine/grape and cherry flavors blend in. Some yeast notes come out as well. Some peppery and a good sweet finish leaving a lot of flavor left over.

The body has a mid feel. A bit sweet for style even for a Strong. Overall a good beer. As I enter this looking at other reviews I wonder why this isn't rated higher. Really nice.

A - Pours a nice clean red/amber colored body. Bright white head is about one finger and made of varying sized bubbles. Good retention.

S - Belgian yeast and spiciness. Coriander. Fruitiness is big here, with orange and some strawberry. Slight woodiness hiding in the background.

T - Belgian yeast and spiciness are huge here. Sweetness in both fruity and sugary forms. Has that yeasty tang that you get with many belgian style beers. Orange citrusy flavors. Dry feel that you get with many wines. Old leather? An odd beer indeed.

M - Medium full bodied, slightly syrupy. Carbonation is very much like that of a single wit.

D - I still don't know quite what to think of this beer. It's good, but I am not sure just how much I like it. As is true with many Dogfish beers, very different.
