Dogfish Head Red and White (6/10)

Like most Dogfish Head brews, Red and White is something unusual.

Deep amber in color. Poured from the bottle, it has a tall, thick head which dissipates slowly.

The flavor is hard to describe. It starts a bit wine-like, a bit tangy and a bit sweet. Like a beer, it's got a hoppy bitterness to it. It's a bit more bitter than I care for but not unpleasantly so. There is a spiciness to it, like a good Belgian tripel or quadrupel. Unlike some high ABV beers, the alcohol warmth is hidden in the overall flavor.

Beer Advocate rates it 88/100, or good.

I don't recall where I purchased this bottle.  It may have been at the beer shop in the North Market.

ABV: 10%
IBU: 35
My rating: 6/10
