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.

Draught from Earl’s in Harlem. Black pour, obviously, foamy head. Sour and yeasty, a really interesting beer.

Exactly as described. A nice roasty, robust black flavor over a wheaty wit.

Beese (1971) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2013
Draft at The White Horse in Parson’s Green, London on 6 July 2013. Poured a very dark ruby with a thin tan head. Aroma was a mix of typical wits with spicy cloves and orange peal as well as the roasted coffee and malt of a good dark beer. Initial flavours of grain and wheat with some spice which move to lingering burnt malt bitterness.

tcane7 (1668) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Draft at Pony Bar. Pours a deep brown, near black, with average tan head. Nose of coriander, Belgian spice, citrus, wheat. Medium mouthfeel, fairly sweet, smooth - no bitterness from the dark malts. Interesting beer, definitely drinkable and better than I expected.

Beerathon (1228) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2013
This is a fun beer with a bunch of flavors you wouldn’t expect by looking at it. Black in color with thin beige head, but fruity hops are prevalent as are complex make bill.

Palme (3455) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2013
On tap @ Rattle N Hum NYC. A lovely looking really dense and lasting brown head on top of a deep dark brown body. The nose is not to extreme but I get some salty licorice traces, a little bit of wheat and it’s almost grassy - like in reed. It gets much more present after a while in the glass and suddenly I get lots of fresh green coriander and basil! Oh, the basil... Fair. Quite tasty. It has a sweet licorice touch with mote of that wheat and a little bit of cardboard. It’s quite light on the mouthfeel, not directly watery but quite light and the carbonation level is about the same, light. Some roastiness towards the finish before its ending in a herbal almost dark tea like experience. Not a huge favorite but fair. 11.06.2013

mansquito (3449) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 5, 2013
World of Beer, Arlington tap: Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma is weird. It is a veritable combination of a very spicy witbier with roasted malts, along with plenty of citrus. Taste gives you what you would expect from the aroma, but with an almost surprising balance. The beer starts off as a spicy Belgian ale, but then in the finish and aftertaste, the roasted character gets more pronounced. Interesting and quite good. Of all things, the aroma of this beer is nuts.

On tap at Mad Mex. Pours a deep brown. Kind of an enigma. Smells like a Belgian wit. Malty aftertaste.
