On-tap at Three Floyds Brewpub...

A: Pours a cloudy gold with pink/red hues. There is a good helping of pure white foam on top of the beer, and it takes a little while to settle. Great lacing as it drinks.

S: The nose is light malt, bubblegum, candy cigarettes, and citrus. The citrus notes aren't over the top, just a complement.

T: It starts out wet and refreshing with a mix of sweet, spice, and mild citrus. You get light malt, clove, orange, and candy cigarettes right up front. The blood orange take a more major role in the middle as I get juice and rind in there. The finish is mild yeast, spice, and more sweetness.

M: Light bodied beer. Sweet and smooth, packed full of flavor, light and refreshing. A typical wit.

O: This is a really solid beer. It's like Gumballhead with the addition of oranges. Super refreshing. I wish I could have had more of this beer, but it would have been a bad idea facing a drive back to South Bend.

On-tap at FFF brewpub

A - Hazy blood orange and very pulpy looking. Not much of a head on this one. It actually looks a bit like a blood orange juice

S - Belgian clove and bubblegum with a nice oragne presence as well. Definitely smells like a Wit

T - The normal Belgian esters give it that bubble gum and banana taste you commoly find Wits. There is some slght clove presence but not much. The richness of the blood orange as well as its tartness comes through in the end. I don't get much of the raspberry flavor you find in blood oranges tho. This beer defintiely tastes more like a wit but does have a nice citrus bite in the finish.

MF - Thick body with light carbonation. Slight citrus bite near the end

O - Nice easy drinking summer beer with a slight taste of blood orange to give it a twist from a normal Wit

Sampled on tap at the brewery. Orange, yellow hazy appearance with a small white head. Nice Belgian spice in the aroma. Flavor follows with some orange. A slight bitterness and a moderate sweetness. A moderate consistency and carbonation. A good beer. No complaints. But it doesn't stand out like the FFF hops.
