On Tap at the Norwich Inn. The brewery calls this a black wit beer made from a wit base beer and roasted grains. Pours a deep brown color with a good sized off white head that sticks around for a little while and leaves lots of sticky lace. Smell is spicy. Wheat and coriander are very pungent in the aroma with a spicy tartness. Mild darker malts throw hints of roast and chocolate at my nostrils. Very spicy nose. Taste is again spicy wheat and coriander mixed with hints of chocolate. Spirited level of carbonation, medium body with a relatively dry finish. Interesting brew, I like what the roast adds to a style of beer I typically don’t enjoy. I thought the spicing was a bit heavy handed personally.

Sampled at 2010 Vermont Brewers Fest. Pours an unattractive, muddy brown color with a thin off white head. Aroma is wheat, coriander and citrus. Soft, yet effervescent palate. Flavor is a fun mix of wheat, spice, hops and caramel malt. Very interesting blend of flavors.

Tap at Vermont Brewer’s Fest 2009. Deep brown pour with a thick sticky white head. The aroma is loaded with a lot of nice citrus, coriander and a touch of licorice spiciness as well. Sort of sweet with a touch of the yeasty spiciness in evidence as well. There is even a bit of light pine over the top. Soft Belgian character with a bit of light roastiness. Flavour is pretty regular though... a touch of light coriander and roast.

My Bottom Line:
Powerful coriander, cardamom and licorice spiciness decrease this Witbier’s drinkability, as most of the base ingredients are barely felt.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slim veil of foam covers the cloudy brown.
-The mouthfeel is well carbonated and quite comfortable.
-The yeast seems to be quite talkative as well; it’s getting loud in there with all the spices.
-Light caramel sweetness comes from the grain bill.

On tap at the Vermont Brewers’ Fest.
