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 (1432) - 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.

pras (441) - Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2013
Didn’t pick up much on the palate, perhaps some smoke and yeastyness. Appearance was dark. Flavor was full of dark roast, and finished with a nice hop bitterness. Didn’t taste any wheat, but I really enjoyed this one.

maxwelldeux (3551) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Draught. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose is actually filled with some dark raspberry notes and some subtle wheat elements and just a slight hint of roasting. Taste is slightly sweet and also has a subtle bit of roasting in there. Interesting.

Atheist_Peace (945) - 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.

tcane7 (1660) - 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.

JDBaker11058 (1246) - 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.
