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.

Beese (3210) - 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.

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.

AxlLives (288) - Maryland, USA - APR 2, 2013
Tap - @ RHP. Pours dark black with big, rocky, tan white head. Decent lacing. Nice aromas of subtle clove, roasted malts, and bananas coming through. Lighter bodied than expected with a pleasing bitter finish. Good lively body. Pretty cold right out of the shoot, it builds in complexity as it warms. Good deal, brewhouse rarities series.

TheJestersBeer (2431) - 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)

Tap at Stone Tap. Very dark pour with some reddish highlights. Orange, grapefruit, and coriander on the aroma. More on the taste. Crisp palate. Damn this is tasty.

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.
