...had this a while ago in the tasting room at Cigar City. I remember it being way too tart, almost artificial kumquat flavor was way too up front. thatís really all I could taste if I remember correctly. Strong citrus nose and finish.

9/27/11. Growler thanks to Adam. Hazy orange pour with a nice khaki head. I donít think Iíve had a kumquat before, but the aroma on this is hugely fruity and tropical. Similar fruity flavor with a nice bitter kick as well. Nice!

DraftÖ CCB Fruit in the Room 2011Ö Pours hazy and straw-colored with a small, white head. The bouquet is more like a Belgian tripel than a wit and Iím picking up no Kumquat here. I admittedly have no idea what a kumquat smells like; however, unless kumquat smells like a Belgian tripel, Iím not picking it up. Medium-bodied and a touch watery with gentle carbonation. The flavor is lightly acidic, mildly bitter, a tad fruity and faintly spicy. Crisp, spicy finish. Basically, this simply tastes like a mild Belgian tripel and I detest the style with very few exceptions.

dchmela (3010) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Tap at FITR. Pours a hazy light gold with a thick white head. Peppery fruity hop aroma. Smooth clean malt, nice wheat body with a nice hint of fruit poking through.

markwise (5188) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2011
On draft at Cigar City for Fruit in the Room. On as Brindle Dog Kumquat Wit. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is a great combination of both parts of a kumquat- the sweetness of the rind with the tartness of the fruit. These all add to a nice combination of citrus, kumquat, and wheat beer. Light to medium in body with a crisp, clean finish.

On draft for Fruit in the Room. Poured a hazy yellow, wiith aromas of oranges, and kumquats. Tasted like an average wit with tart kumquats and oranges added.
