COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Close your eyes. The delicate aroma, flavor, texture of this beer whisper “witbier”. Now open your eyes. The color is deceiving. You take another sip. Yes, witbier … but black as night. It is something quite peculiar—BuT it is brilliant—something shimmering and

A: The pour is a dark brown color with a big off-white/khaki colored head. S: Slightly sweet wheat bread on the nose with some definite chocolate/cocoa powder going on. Overall, though, it’s fairly bland and does not have much of the spice that the style usually does. T: Very highly carbonated, too much so, which gives the beer a strong taste of CO2. Some decent chocolate flavor and perhaps a hint of coriander underneath, but not very easily noticed. I also get a moderate chocolate flavor and roasted malt. M: The body is medium with a pretty darn high level of carbonation. D: Easy enough to drink, but not really that great in terms of the flavors that are actually there.

Bottle at Paul’s tasting. Pours a dark black with a thin tan head. Smells like what it claims to be, a dark witbier. Coriander and light orange, with some caramelized malt. Medium bodied, light roast and caramel. Finishes up dry with a little spice.

AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Clear brown color with a tan head. Dry dark roasted malt aroma with mild Wit brew spices. Medium body. Dry dark roasted malt flavors at first, then mild orange peel, earthy chamomile herb and coriander spices to finish. Pretty much a schwarzbrew with witbrew spices. Nice.

5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2011
Bottle:   This one seems to be somewhat of a ginger kid.   Its definitely dark, black in color, thin to moderate sudsy light beige head, spotty lacing.   I dont get much witbier aroma or flavor, moreso just a wheatish aspect, slightly toasty.   Very faint dark pitted fruit.   Almost more inline with a really really watered down Dubbel, at least in my view.   Yeah, not terribly interesting this one.   Not bad, just for a Wit Noire like beer, nope, doesn’t stand up.   Meh...

jgb9348 (6650) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Pitch black coloured body with a nice brown glow at the bottom and a thin tan head. Aroma of yeast, wheat, coriander seed, roasted malt and a bit of sweet sugars. Medium-bodied; Assertive roasted malt, nuts, coriander seed, curacao, lemons and a touch of caramel sweetness - very nice, albeit hard to describe and lump into a single style. Aftertaste is quite complex with a lot of deep flavours and some strong malt tastes. Overall, a nice and very interesting beer that shows a lot of character. Great to try if you can find it! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Brown Jug in Anchorage (Dimond Center), Alaska on 18-June-2011 sampled from my cabin in Denali, Alaska on 20-June-2011.
