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.

Draft at Roasthouse pub - 12 oz pour. Didn’t know what to expect however this was excellent. Very complex combination of citrus and spice with the yeast of the wit bier smoothing it out, all in a black beer. Strong recommend.

Abijen (1402) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2013
Pours a dark brown beer with a creamy tan head. Smells fruity, orange and malts. Tastes chocolate, malts, orange and or citrus. Average carbo, medium body and a sticky texture.

keanex (1400) - 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.

JDBaker11058 (1223) - Maryland, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Appearance: creamy, very dark brown, light tan head. Aroma: slightly toasted wheat bread, clove, yeast, and some surprisingly bright citrus. Taste: as the aroma indicated. Finish: lingering slightly sweet, fruity, spice flavors. Notes: As advertised, this was basically a very good belgian witbier with some darker, more malty/roasty undertones. Quite pleasant. NoVA Brewfest 2013.

dbarnold (1126) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - APR 11, 2013
Didn’t taste like a wit at all, but it was pretty tasty. Smooth, very drinkable, and slight roast. The citrus is present, but not overpowering. Good beer.

Beerathon (1111) - 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.

Atheist_Peace (928) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2013
Tap at Ginger Man. Dark brown pour with tan head that lasts. Very citrusy on the nose with no real aromas that hint at the colour. Some spice. More spice than anything on the palate with some citrusy notes and a hint of roasted character. A strange sot of beer and seems to be missing something.

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