A: The pour is a milky dark brown/chestnut color with a very minimal off-white head.
S: The nose is sort of light in terms of intensity, but whatís there is good. A mild roasted malt character, some subtle spice esters, as well as hints of oranges, chocolate, and wheat.
T: A good, sweet, wheat flavor along with coriander and orange peel. A nice sweet bready flavor along with some undertones of chocolate.
M: The body is medium with a soft, low level of carbonation.
D: This beer didnít sound all that promising but it turned out to be one of the better offerings Iíve had from 21A.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
...on tap at the pub. Looked almost black in the glass, a small off white head, a little lacing. Nose basically a wit, orange, some dark spiced fruit. Flavors were yeasty, wheaty, nice and flavorful. Finished dry, with s nice yeast afternote. Really fooled you by the color, throws your taste off.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at 21st Amendment. Pours pretty damn close to black with a large bubble off-white head. Not much lacing to speak of. Aroma is somewhat faint but pleasant, with wheat, yeast, banana, citrus, and coriander. Flavor is wheat, banana, bubblegum, orange peel, coriander and other spice, some caramel and chocolate. Pretty tasty. Medium-light body with a fairly crisp palate. Refreshing and drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A witbier with dark malt? I love it already! Color is red-brown, and so dark itís almost black. I love the head, itís very bubbly, and leaves some nice looking lace. Aroma is A bit on the funky side. The caramel aroma almost seems to clash with the bubblegum yeast aroma. I was hoping for some banana aroma, but I canít detect it at all. Flavor is nice and mellow, lightly sour, not much bitterness. Very refreshing, and goes well with a burger.
