COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Notes of rich coriander spice, bright citrus, and subtle malt backbone greet the nose. On your first sip, the citrus and spice meld with sweet bready notes and Belgian yeast undertones. This complex brew, made with both blood orange and grapefruit zest, is a full-bodied blend of two distinct styles.

keanex (1452) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2014
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: The body is murky and opaque with a blakc hue. The head is dense and creamy with a tan hue.
Aroma: The aroma is very mild, hints of bitter orange, a touch of smoke and a slight chalkiness. Very weak.
Taste: The flavor is nicely balanced with hints of cocoa powder and smoke with an underlying crisp orange. The finish lingers a little of cocoa powder. Nice and drinkable.
Palate: Full creamy body with sharp carbonation.
Overall: Lacking a lot of character, but nicely drinkable. This is an interesting style, one I would like to see more of.

Tap @ Beer Temple (sample courtesy of Sander, thanks!). Very dark, but not quite black color. Off white head. Aroma’s: pine, citrus from the glass, but retronasal it’s quite different: herbal-spicy, fruity, a little roast, quite weird (but not unpleasant) actually, hard to describe. Flavor: lightly fruity-sour, herbal, a bit licorice/drop. Light bodied. Finishes herbal and moderate bitter.
