3.55/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

a: served in a big snifter, the dark beer appears black at the dimly lit bar, sporting a low white head

s: roasted barley aromas push through a wheat foundation, lots of spice - clove, coriander, and clove - but not oppressive, yeasty underripe banana, light coffee and some sugary plum in the background, some subtle booze comes out after warming

m: carbonation moderate, body comes across as full but not heavy

t: big coriander spice with some undertones of banana on a roasted body thinned out with a wheat base, moderate sugars, orange peel, clove, yeasty, iced coffee with some roast astringency towards the finish, flavors of plum

d: a noble shot at a style mash up, but the roast and yeasty spice/banana combo just doesn't do it for me

sampled at the brewpub in Duluth

Serving type: on-tap

3.5/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

on-tap at the brewpub, not retired

cellphones notes

appearance: served in a large snifter - ebony body, light beige head

smell: black pepper, yeast, corriander, light fruit

taste: I'm beginning to think that the black wit style should cease operations - the yeast, pepper and malt flavors all kind of crash leaving a medicinal soapy finish. There is a dry roastiness throughout and a fair amount of clove

mouthfeel: medium-light, fresh

drinkability: ok

Serving type: on-tap

Considered a dark whit I guess....I don't get a lot of whit characteristics...

A-Dark brown...tan head....

S-The aroma is yeasty and fruity..apples/pears...

T-Fruity and yeasty much like the aroma...again apples and pears....not much of a malt impression despite the dark appearance. Maybe a tich of dark cocoa...

M-Lighter bodied...medium to low carbonation...goes down easy...finishes with a slight sour apple impression.

D-Not one of my favorites from Fitger's but well worth trying as it is a creative stab at something a little different.

Serving type: growler

4.1/5  rDev +14.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Slightly hazy light orange color. Fluffy white head sits at a quarter inch, fair retention.

S - Sweet yeast, bubblegum, earthy and faint peppery spice.

T - Starts sweet and sugary, then some sweet bubblegum yeast. A bit of spiciness makes a short appearance and the sweet yeast flavor finishes out.

M - Medium to thick consistency and medium carbonation.

D - Sweet and clean tasting with few adjunct flavors. A very refreshing summertime treat.

Serving type: on-tap
