My Thoughts on Red & White: Dogfish Head Red & White

Dogfish Head Red & White – 10%ABV

I had Dogfish Head Red & White on draft one night at Iron Monkey and wanted to do a review of it. I picked up a bottle and decided to give it a whirl. First of all, let me say that this is unlike any witbier I’ve ever had. Then again, Dogfish Head is known for going outside the boundaries of conventional brewing. First, the color. It’s a clear amber/golden, almost orange in color. Most witbiers I’ve ever seen are an opaque white, with a hint of yellow hue. Not this one. The taste is different as well, influenced by the oak barrel aging and the pinot noir juice added during the brewing process. It’s a good beer, but definitely not something you would expect if you saw the word “witbier” when defining it.

Our credo is “Stay Thirsty, But Stay Different.” Dogfish Head Red & White is just that. Cheers!

About Jason M

Texas Style - Having grown up down south, I've grown an appreciation for the "bigger is better" mantra. Bigger and bolder flavor is something I crave in my beers. Some people are hop-heads, all they drink are IPA's and other hoppy beers. Others are big on wheat beers. Some like it dark. Me? I'm an all-the-above kind of guy. I've had a love for all varieties since I was young and that has not changed. Good beer is good beer.

I'm constantly seeking out the latest and greatest new variety, because despite having an old-time favorite beer, drinking the same old flavors over and over gets old. That being said, I've got to try something new, explore my boundaries. After all, variety is the spice of life, no?

  1. I love the quasi-awkward video review. Fantastic. Also, it kind of gives beginner reviewers a structure on how to review a beer.

    I agree, super different beer, but this is by far one of my favorite dogfish head offerings.

    • Hey Mark! Thanks for stopping by and giving the video a look see. Yeah the video had me cracking up too especially the rocker hair flip at 3:50 because he hasn’t had head banger hair in YEARS! lol

      Love the mash tun post. I’ve been considering making one myself instead of using the oven.

      • Old habits die hard I guess. I’ve got a 5 gallon cooler here at the house that I was thinking of converting into a mash tun. Also looking into finding a cheap 10 gallon for bigger batches. Although I must say I was intrigued by the post Mark has. Very interesting…

  2. nice vid! haha. I also noticed that head bob. just thought it had something to do with u being nervous.

    You can definitely tell you were a little nervous – excpected. I did like that you kept the off camera talk in the video, good choice. All in all – Not bad JDog! The rocker hair flip was classic. You must have been thinking about Dimebag Darrell.

      I wasn’t really nervous. I was excited. Maybe a little apprehensive because I was the only one talking, drinking, etc. But nervous? Nah. All good though. Now that I’ve gotten my feet super wet, expect to see more soon! (funny outtakes and rolling credits will still apply)
