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.

boxofrane (2050) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Draft at lucky lab. Pours dark brown with a small off white head. The aroma has a ton of citrus rind and some spicy cardamon. The taste has a lot of the zest, spice, and a balance of roast. Nice.

TheJestersBeer (2032) - SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2013 Draught @ Sorbon. Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Hoppy, roasted, resiny aroma, grapefruit, chocolate, ashes, coffee. Dry, medium bodied, mid to´high bitterness, balanced CO2. Taste reflect most of the elements of the aroma, the ashy notes emerge more clearly, as do most of the roasted notes. Feels more like a Black IPA. (2013-06-14)

Inbreak (1884) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 19.06.2013, tap @ The Ginger Man NY:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly roasted and spiced, dark malts, cloves, cardamom, pepper, rubber, hay, hops, licorice, ginger, caramel. Taste is slightly dry roasted, dark malts, grass, hops, cocoa, rubber, cloves, pepper, leafs, cardamom. Medium bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Nice and interesting, even though I can’t see where the wit association comes in, and I have no idea what a black wit would / should be like.

PotjeBier (1584) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2013
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.

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

Beese (1462) - 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.
